This kind of thing is exactly why we need a dedicated sarcasm emoticon.

Well, I was under the impression that the "rolling eyes" smiley would do the trick. I guess I was wrong.

Maybe I'm just inexperienced with emoticons, but the rolling eyes one seems to me to indicate that someone's fed up or tired.

Yeah, like if someone rolled they eyes at you in person. It's the visual equivalent of an exasperated moan:


I'd say the closest emoticon is the winky one: ;) But it doesn't quite cut it.

Hey, I like "Dr. Strangelove".

I liked all of these movies (except Diner, which apparently nobody has seen) but they aren't really comedies in that same sense as, say, Airplane!- Strangelove has that Brazil thing of being funny and disquieting at the same time, Rushmore is more character driven than jokey, and Malkovich is wonderfully strange but not really comedic at any specific point. Annie Hall was totally unfair, though- it's a damn funny movie and he was bringing in outside issues with Woody as a person.
