According to "our best friend" Wikipedia, ASCII art means a graphic design technique that uses computers for presentation and consists of pictures pieced together from characters used in various languages.
The following AA represents a pair of cherries.
_,| / ゝ⌒ヽ
／ ⊥｀ヽ ::::::! From http://bhdaa.sakura.ne.jp/zukan/
| :::::::|､ ..:::,ノ
This kind of picture is often seen on bulleting boards in any language.
Since I'm not familar with AA of different languages, I'd like to ask you about the following AA.
The following words mean "I'm(we're) getting excited, or I'm(we're) getting high―of course in Japanese.
What's intriguing is that these characters actually fall down while their literal meaning is as I mentioned above.
さ あ 、 も り あ が っ
1. Literal meaning is "getting high, or excited"
2. The characters slide down.
Contradicting each other, aren't they?
When the above is used this way, it means irony.
Japanese people ironaically use them when somethings is in fact boring and makes him/her down.
もりあがってまいりました It plainly has the original meaning, the literal meaning "getting high, or excited".
Questions I'd like to ask
1.Have you ever seen any AA that is used in a similar way as the second AA on this page?
2.Do you call it an AA?
For example like this.
