A quick tutorial on the importance of proper ascii art.

I, like many individuals, spend a great deal of time communicating via instant messaging and using various small bits of ascii art to convey our emotions along with some of the worst butcherings of the English language in the form of lawlcat, l33tsp33k, and overly used txtspeek.

Yeah. Waffle cones to the head. It's love.
