HTML Entity: 💩
Though on my iMac it looks like this, which is far more festive.
I still say it's crazy that Unicode contains things like 💩 and ☃ and but not
Also I note that www.💩.com is still unregistered.
That "" is U+F8FF, which is in the private-use area. I don't think it renders the same on non-Apple OSes. It's not really part of unicode.
"Pile of Poo" and "Snowman" are of course honest-to-god members of the unicode club though.
It’s not http://www.
Well, that didn’t work. Round two: http://www.panic.com/blog/2011/07/the-worlds-first-emoji-domain/
Another link, using the Punycode equivalent: http://xn--ls8h.la/
I'm sure some enterprising unicode nerd could create a fair multi-glyph interpretation of the artist formerly known as' name. All the bits are there.
That's not a bad idea! If someone can tell me what I need to paste into an iTunes text field to make it display correctly, that would be awesome.
You'd think so, but that curly thing is not well-represented. You can use combining marks for the rest: -⃓̬̊
And sadly there never will be a domain
Test emoji character here:
JWZ: Oh my it seems that your blog doesn't like the emoji directly inputted into replies. Tries with html entity: 💩
That's a mighty handsome rectangle you've got there.
Clearly you are lacking in poop-capable fonts.
You can now get a plushie to go with your Unicode character:
And put them all in a love hotel: http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/1f3e9/index.htm
Don't worry, I made a webfont you can use until the rest of the world catches up:
It's not as festive as the Apple one with its perky eyes, but it'll do.
Weird rendering issues. It only shows up for me in Textmate.

I'm glad that it's 2012, and that even text is still hard to get right.
It probably depends on the specifics of how font fallback works. I installed that Poop.ttf I made as a system font on OS X 10.6 and Firefox displays that glyph just fine.
http://shapecatcher.com and my crude drawing skills say:
Malayalam fraction one quarter: ൳
Unicode hexadecimal: 0xd73
In block: Malayalam
should be a good start
So ൳⃓̬̊ (d73, 20d2, 30a, 32c) would be correct if this were displaying correctly, and it's actually pretty close in TextEdit and iTunes. (Though you can't blow it up in iTunes to look at it.)
I needed one of the fonts from http://www.clickeralam.org/product.html to display the Malayam, though.
On topic, sadly: Human waste powered robot
Anyone feeling a lack of obscure symbols (yes, including poop) can get George Douros's free Symbola font from his site. It covers all the symbols in Unicode 6.0 and a bunch of symbols from upcoming Unicode/UCS proposals.
I always thought that Prince's thing was just an ankh, and the curlipointy bits were just features of the font that he'd chosen to use (just like all of the other artists who who have specific fonts that they use with their names). No?
