Having Fun with JavaScript and Skype Emoticons

I was chatting with Jim Cowart (@ifandelse) on Skype today about jQuery. He pasted in a snippet of code and Skype translated part of it into one of itโ€™s emoticons. He almost immediately updated the chat message to fix the issue, but it got me starting to thinkโ€ฆ and that can be very dangerous.

I thought to myself that it would be fun to create a program that intentionally utilize Skype emoticons. The following screenshot is the result of the program I put together. It is a restaurant where you can listen, eat, and drink ;)

As you can tell, it is a silly little program. The code for the above screenshot can be found below. Some of the icons I used are secret emoticons that you can lookup.

If youโ€™d like to come up with your own Skype-enabled JavaScript program, then Iโ€™d like to see it. Share it in the comments. Have fun!
