Emoticlish

Emoticons will become the dominant language in 2028 for nearly every nation. In the rare nation that does not adopt Emoticlish (as it is referred to in most nations), the phrase "ESL" will refer to "Emoticons as Second Language". Universal Keyboards will emerge, and will only have the following keys: : )( 0 ! ; D * [ ] > < q p = - and |. Many marriage proposals will be as follows: "Will you make me colon-hyphen-closed parenthesis and marry me?" Most responses will consist of "colon-hyphen-zero... yes!" George and Neal have actually nothing to do with this, but thought people from the first decade of the 2000's would find this tidbit of future history interesting.

 

Emoticlish - George and Neal's involvement in the emoticlish movement? Creating the first emotikeyboard. It remains a mystery to this day as to why George and Neal felt a need to keep the other "blank" keys.
