short vs. long: The battle is over

While in my inbox every now and then I get strange emails promising the mysterious prolonging of body parts, on Twitter it seems you need not one, but many services to shorten stuff.
Is this a cultural battle, I wonder?
Perhaps we need a third force?! I thought lots of thoughts and went on many Castaneda like journeys through my mind and I'm glad to say, I finally found something!
So I hereby declare that I am the sole inventor of a string prolonging "Smiley Shortening Service".

Explanation: Just like with URL shorteners you hand some content over to the service and back you get a short url for insertion in your messages.
But unlike URL shortener services with a Smiley Shortener the link you get back for enhancing eg. a simple ";-)" will be LONGER, like let's say:
The page you get after clicking such an URI will show you a beautifully rendered smiley. Or a chinese smiley. Or an ASCII art smiley. The possibilities are amazing!
Of course I publish this bright idea unter a CC Attribution 3.0 licence free for your taking!
If this is not a big step into the direction of soluting some of the most mysterious problems of mankind I don't know what pills you take for not getting right into IT.

Grey - boring. Must live in extremes. Humans don't notice subtlety.
