c”,)

Has anybody else seen this emoticon showing up around the internet? If you can’t tell what’s happening, the c is the nose, the ” is the eyes, the , is the mouth and the ) is the back of the head c”,) Other variations include:
c°.)
c¨.)
c”_)
and combinations thereof. I find this fascinating because they are a full side view, a third aspect for smileys, different from the US/European sideways .:-) style and the face-on Japanese style (^_^). The folks over at metafilter seem to think they are possibly Nordic or Latin in origin. Regardless, it’s a reminder of the constant evolving world of the emoticon.
