Is there a way to get more emoticons?

benefit of doubt

benefit of doubt originally a starblvd post by CAM, May/18/2004 21:29:07 [-05 EST] It was very clever marketing to send the gift certificates. As I recall, this store's clothes are very expensive, and it might get some people into buy things hoping for a bargain. Possibly better marketing than the p...

half a million in gift certificates originally a starblvd post by blm, also cynical, May/16/2004 21:52:57 [-05 EST] The cost to the store of the gift certificates is way less than actually forking out $25 to each victim.

more about Please Mum originally a starblvd post by MrsBrown, May/16/2004 21:02:27 [-05 EST] I received the $25 gift coupon and turned it over to my neighbour.
