This was 1984. There were no cell phones. The Internet and email were in their infancies. MTV was a popular music video channel and texting tiny text pictures was not a thing. But the weepul (wee people) was. This emoji critter was the product of three Texas A&M University students and could be found in campus bookstores and other locations throughout Aggieland. They sold like penny candy at the register. Thumbs up to pre-emoji era pom poms.
