The new emoticons with their authors are :

Renata, a 31 year-old financial analyst living in Egypt, submitted the “thumbs up” emoticon which she says was inspired by the movie “Borat”. “My 4 year-old son saw a couple of (allowed) scenes and he wanted to imitate him.” Renata adds that in her home country of Macedonia, “we use two thumbs up whenever we want to say that someone has done a good job.”

Eunice S., a 22 year-old IT project manager from the Philippines, submitted the “It wasn’t me!” emoticon for all of us who may need to “look guilty in a funny way”. Eunice says “I would use my emoticon when someone’s blaming me of something I’m not responsible of. But, it can also be used by guilty people who are trying to deny something they actually did.”

11 year-old Daisy J. from Seattle, WA submitted the useful “Hurry up!” emoticon, which you can use in a number of ways to get your friends moving. Daisy said “I can never get my friends to leave…so now I can use my emoticon.” Daisy’s favorite emoticons? The big grin, nerd and “talk to the hand”.

Rose M., a 25 year-old marketer from Santa Monica, CA sent in the thrashing “Rock on!” emoticon. Her inspiration? “People everywhere are listening to music while they are on the Internet… So many times I’ve wanted to express that ‘I’m Rocking Out’”. Well, Rose, we hope this does the trick!

The other two new emoticons in Yahoo! Messenger 9.0 Beta are “Thumbs down”, submitted by Ryan L., and “Don’t want to see” from Nancy.
