Japanese Emoticon Stamp

Compared to their sideway English cousins, inline Japanese emoticons (Kaomoji) are far more complex - and dare I say it - much more awesome (~_^).

At first glance, the handheld stamp above looks normal enough, but upon closer inspection, you'll soon realize that it makes hundreds of (analog, no less) cute Japanese emoticons. Fanboy has more pics: Link

they're actually usually called emoji, which can be emo(ticon/tion)+ji(which means character), and e (japanese for picture)+moji(also meaning character or word).
