    Quick little tips about using the :bortz: smiley.

    1. It can (read: should) be used in every situation no matter what you are feeling.
    Examine these faces:
    :lol: :blink: :angry: :cry:

    All of them are completely different right? But they can ALL be represented with :bortz: Observe.
    :bortz: :bortz: :bortz: :bortz:

    See? Even though you feel happy, confused, angry, or crying ( ;O; ) they all look the same under the mask. So no matter what you are feeling, you can ALWAYS convey the correct emotion using the :bortz:

    2. Dont be afraid to end sentences with :bortz:

    The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy bortz.
    The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy bortz :bortz:

    Both are correct. This however:
    he quick brown fox jumps over the lazy bortz :bortz: .

    Is NOT correct. Dont make that mistake.

    3. End you post with 3 :bortz: icons.
    Example post:

    "Well my humble opinion is that the Vita is mad gay and the Xbox One gobbles all the dongs.
    :bortz: :bortz: :bortz: "

    The 3 bortz face at the end really drives home your point and lets people know you are done with your post.

    Put these tips to good use, and happy web slinging.

    Fixed those for you. You can't have punctuation at the end of a sentence if there's a :bortz: there. Simple grammar guys.

    Well looks like Super Paper Mario 2 has a story of Mario collecting pure hearts to get power to defeat you for abusing the :bortz: emotion for the Wii U..
