A programming language made of smileys

Just imagine the possibilities of a language whereby programs are constructed from smileys:

  • Easy to write, all language objects can be arranged on a toolbar. No more typos !
  • Easy to read. You get an immediate emotional response by simply looking at the code.
  • Appealing to a programmer of any nationality. No internationalization required !
  • Easy to extend by adding smileys with hammers, flowers or database connectors.
  • Fun to work with !

Actually, it's existing already, but i can't find any links to it due to obvious querying problems.

"Appealing to a programmer of any nationality"
That is not necessarily correct. For example, Japanese smilies look different.
