Comment from Hibb de Bach: that was sarcasm...
UPDATE: As pointed out by karlgoethebier in his reply, I need to add some explanation. Here is some introduction into the local language http://ckprojects.org/frankforderisch.pdf.
"...Hibb de Bach"
Even many germans don't know what Hibb de Bach means. That's to much local color.
Explanation: it's the northern part of the city of Frankfurt in Germany.
Also please note: i'm not from Dribb de Bach but from Offenbach.
I hope that helps. Regards, Karl

BTW: As the document refers to Goethe i'd like to mention that his famous deathbed cry "Mehr Licht!" (More light) is often misunderstood or misinterpreted.
In effect it was "Merr lischt so schlecht!".
Explanation for non-germans: Something was wrong with his bed or he had lumbago.

Use one parenthesis: (Like this: :)

Use angle/square brackets instead of parentheses
Use C-style commenting to set the smiley off from the closing parenthesis
Make the smiley a dunce: (:>
