How about one for ‘you cannot be serious’, a broken tennis racket would be good for that, although the reference might be lost on the youngsters. :D

Maybe a certain kind of raincoat to the left of a small boat propelled using oars? :D

That reference is lost on this oldie!

How about one for "throwing toys out of the pram"?

I could do with an indecisive smiley, trouble is I’d have great trouble deciding when to use it.

All good-humoured stuff...

BUT this Forum has a reputation for reasoned argument and debate rather than insult and 'flame wars'...

... I fear some of these suggestions would become petrol rather than fire-extinguishers...

Jus' sayin'...

BTW... I have this close at hand, but don't use it too much...

Remember - these proposed new smileys all have to fit into a 15x15px GIF.
