Irgendwann letztes Jahr hatte ich das Jubiläum des Smileys :-) verlinkt, der 25 Jahre alt wurde, oder so. Bullshit, Emoticons sind weit über 100 Jahre alt, sofern es sich beim Transskript einer Rede aus dem Jahr 1862 von Abraham Lincoln nicht um einen Tippfehler handelt. Alle Teenies dieser Welt können also beruhigt ausatmen: ZOMG! ROFL-Speech iz historic valuable!^^

A historical newspaper specialist at the digital archival company Proquest believes he has found an example of a sideways winking smiley face embedded in The New York Times transcript of an 1862 speech given by President Lincoln. Other historians are not so sure, saying the semicolon alongside a closed parenthesis is either a mistake or a misinterpretation of something that is perfectly grammatical for that era.
