There's entirely too much sharing on Facebook these days, with people openly attempting to indicate their actual feelings. To put the kibosh (from the Gaelic, "cap of death") on this, I hereby endorse the use of the following Unemoticons:
     {:^I}  (ordinary person, head bloody but unbowed),
     [:^I}  (apprentice Stoic),
     [:^I]  (full Stoic), and
     {:^I#  (hipster Stoic, with goatee).
