Broke Smilie

Postby Cittasanto » Tue Sep 08, 2009 1:32 am

:broke:
is the smilie happy that it has something in its pockets but then sad when it realises that it has nothing in its pockets, or happy that it has pockets to have nothing in, but sad the pockets are going to waste?

Is it a noble smilie or an ignoble smilie?
