Emoticons on the road

There’s only so much you can say with a flash of your headlights or a quick wave of thanks in your rear-view mirror. But soon we’ll be able to wave goodbye to limited-range-of-communication-with-other-drivers worries, thanks to the Drivemocion – an in-car gizmo that brings emoticons to the open road. You know emoticons – those annoying little smiley symbols put in emails and text messages to show what they’re feeling as they write. :o(

The gadget fits inside your rear windscreen and can display “smiley-face” and “wink” emoticons, along with text messages saying “back off”, “thanks”, and (probably most useful), “sorry”…

Any suggestions for emoticons they may have missed?
