Kewl...but....but...it needs something.

Wait....I know. It looks....'colonic'. I think what it needs is something akin to this along the bottom:

:shit: :shit: :shit: :shit: :shit: :shit: :shit: :shit: :shit:


Well, crap...the emoji don't space well at all.

Just what we need here, crap turds in the horde. (And 'turd' isn't even useful in the search mechanism!)
