Is the :dog: emoticon meant to be :doh:?

Any problems with the site? How can we improve KVR?

I've always wondered why a facepalm emoticon would be referred to as a dog.

However, today I noticed two things:
- if you hover over the icon it says "d'oh"
- G is right next to H on the keyboard.

I'm guessing it was a typo that was never fixed.
"I was wondering if you'd like to try Magic Mushrooms"
"Oooh I dont know. Sounds a bit scary"
"It's not scary. You just lose a sense of who you are and all that sh!t"

I suspect you're right mushy mushy.

Although there are a few other mysteries about this website which, when you discover them, might well lead you to think that everything isn't what it first seems...

Now that VPN thread suddenly makes sense.

Mind. Blown.

The "d'oh' is referenced to Homer Simpson probably.

I get the d'oh, I just don't get the dog. Unless dog was always intended to be doh, but there was a typo when creating the emoticons.

I always wondered about that too though. Didn’t think about d’oh, but wondered what the relevance of “dog” is.

Ohhh now I get it.
If you click this emoticon it types :_dog: (without the underscore), I never noticed this to be honest hence my confusion. :dog: :D

It's because Matt Groening has copyrighted D'oh!©️
