“The Joker is yet another Smiley Face delivering a tour de force performance! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🎥”
~Movie Critic, Emoji Today Magazine
🎶Looking like a cornflake 🙂
Waiting for a Muppet to come 👹
See how they run like puppets
highly strung … See how they run
I’m smiling 😁
I am the X-Man
I am the X-Man
I am the Smiley Face 😎
Goo Goo Ga Joo
So … don’t you think
The Joker smiles at you? 🎶
Ho ho ho, hee hee hee, hah hah hah
~ The Emojis (The Yellow Album)
Meanwhile, General Serious Face 🧐
continues his telephone conversation
congratulating Mr. Smiley Face 😎
for successfully transubstantiating
into the Third Dimension, with the
offer of a top secret e-Mission 🤫
. . . “The All Scanning 👁️ Keyboard
Operator would like you to take care
of that red traitor and heretic, Elmo,
by giving him the flick. He’s been in
hiding since a certain incident.
Our spys can’t find him anywhere.
But we’ve been made aware that his
D. D. S (Deep Disney State) handler
is that flea bag, Agent Orange, a.k.a.
Fozzie Bear. He who never bothers
to wear any underwear 👙
Follow the Disney money, and you’re
sure to find Fozzie there, being such
a low down Muppet mercenary. You
are fully sanctioned to do whatever it
takes to make that bear talk 🛠️🗨️🐻
And then give that blasphemer Elmo
the elbow, with extreme prejudice 😉
His very name is an abomination …
EL MO! For there is only One Mo, and
and Emo Jo be his name!”
Caught up in the General’s fervour 🥵
most religious, Mr. Smiley Face gave
his heartfelt response …
“I shall undertake this e-Mission with
Emoji precision, and great relish!”
“May Mo Jo be praised, indeed!”,
came the General’s swift reply.
“You’ll be in need of a cover story
to thwart the spys of the enemy.
Those Muppets have eyes 👀
and ears👂everywhere, so stay
right away from toy stores.
Every, and any, Tom, Bert & Ernie,
could be an informer. So, the cover
story is you’re a mime artist from
the Moscow Circus, on extended sick
leave with a bad case of jaundice.
If you make like a tourist, nobody
should notice, as you track down
that scuzzball Red Brigade terrorist.
Good luck. And of course, if you are
captured, Emoji High Command will
deny any and all knowledge of your
existence. So be prepared to eat
Gitmo porridge . . . or worse 🧐”
Now, for the first time, Mr. Smiley
Face felt like there was some real
purpose to his life.
Happily, he headed off to the beach.
Where, gleefully, he planned some
big Muppet stife, whilst making
sand castles and playing in the surf.
And being a good little Emoji, he
only ever swims between the flags
whilst the lifeguards are on duty 😎
