Brohoof Emoticon?

Postby XXDarkShadow79XX » 05 Jul 2012 20:50

Why is the bro hoof emoticon /) (\ ? Shouldn't it be /] [\ ? I'm terribly sorry about this useless thread, but it's been bugging me for some time now. Also, how do you brohoof irl? Do you do a regular bro fist, or do you tilt your hand up and bump the heels of your hands. I actually do the latter.

My guess would be because parentheses are more frequently used than brackets. The softer curve of the parentheses is also more in line with the shows overall design than brackets. But if you wanna do /], by all means go for it.

I've never done a brohoof, but I'd imagine it'd just be a brofist (it's a play on words after all). Then again, the brohoof emoticon always strike me as somewhat of a highfive motion. /)*(\ Do you see it?

Well, sometimes it's drawn with a slightly curved-looking hoof, due to angles/perspective/something. Look at the second and third pictures here, for example. If you mimic that with ASCII, the parentheses make more sense than the brackets.
