I always thought that that smiley was a reporter with a microphone, and white paper on his hat (that would read "press").
Is it actually a gun? He gives you a saucy wink, and then a bullet?
A magnifying glass? It doesn't look clear enough to me.
Strange smiley. But it's 3 for the third in the detective series. :detective1: :detective2: :detective3
It's just missing the ":" off the end.
I always saw it as as a detective, but now that Charlie pointed out the "paper" in his hat I'll never be able to see anything but a reporter again.
How come that after 3 attempts there isn't a good detective yet? Take detective 1 ( :detective1: ) for example. The curves of it's mouth and the pipe makes it look like he has a dog face or something. Detective 2 ( :detective2: ) just looks like a guy in a hat. I demand a proper detective!
He's a reporter, going undercover as a detective to work on his big scoop. His magnifying glass that looks like a microphone is actually a microphone to pick up all his conversations. Not that conspicuous, but he doesn't care.
