I was using Windows Character Map and it dawned on me that I don't think of the extended characters. There are dingbats that I didn't know I had. Anyway, I discovered that foreign letters can look like silly smileys in some font types.
Baby Kruffy Font:
(Exclamation and checkmark are there just cuz I liked them. The tilde looks like a bird.)
Alba Matter Font:
The foreign Y is Garmond font.
The red martini glass is Webding font.
Here's a pretty pattern I made from WPMathExtendedA font symbols.
And some birds, same font.
So that was a fun distraction for a while.
