    … of the Month: Mr. Face Advance

    Background: A long long time ago, on an ancient, destroyed, website, there lived a happy little smiley face by the name of "Mr. Face."

He lived a pretty uneventful life until one dreadful day when some bastard game players like you decided to shoot him... in the face! Assholes. Anyway, one shot to the head was not enough for the psychos, they shot over and over and over until the poor yellow smiley couldn't take it anymore and exploded... That was the last we saw of the lovable face for years to come.
