I hate it when emoticons materialize in my students' compositions,* so naturally I'm going to enjoy today's FoxTrot, which makes fun of the (ab)use of emoticons in essays. Unfortunately, there's no permalink to today's comic, so beginning tomorrow, you will need to click your way to today's date (April 20, 2006) through the calendar at the uComics FoxTrot page to view it.

*I am pleased that my current group of students have exercised restraint with smilies, etc. I've seen nary an aberrant emoticon all semester! Or at least, I don't think there have been any — if I did see one, I must've repressed that memory.
