If you are using Windows7 as an OS, you can go to Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Character Map.
That will give you a whole library of symbols to use.

For Windows XP you would go: Start> All Programs> Accessories> Character Map.

Renners and cosmic, You guys had me on that one. I ended up using my smartphone calculator and entered the numbers. Too funny.

Madts, I hope you were kidding with the growing up part. I think this world needs more humor even if it is kid like. This world is just too serious and many people are just stressed out. A little comic relief never hurt anyone.
