Unicode already includes some symbols for "happy face", "sad face" and so on. However, it clearly doesn't cover the range of images possible with ASCII smileys. I'd like to propose the "Mr. Potato Head" Unicode range, which will be filled with combining characters (eyes, hair, mouths, moustaches, etc.) which can be used to make up silly faces of various types.
