I often look for a thumbs up smiley under the "Instant Graemlins" section and find there is none. Can we add a thunbs up smiley over there ?

Yeah, I think that would be a nice addition.

He's winking while giving the "thumbs up" gesture.

Why wink when giving "thumbs up". I get the impression that the poster does not really mean thums up because of the wink.

Maybe he's checking wind direction, or trying to line up his sights.

reasons for the wink:

  • someone just spit it his eye and he liked it. Hence the wink; "you spat it my eye", and the thumbs up; "cool".
  • He doesn't have an eye.
  • His eye hurts
  • Someone poked him in his eye, and he liked it.
  • He's a pirate and forgot to wear his eye patch
  • He poked his own eye and is showing you the finger he used, which is now covered in eye gook
