    Smiley Contest -- Win a Chicken

    Ok peeps, heres one...

    Write a program that will... display an ascii image of a smiley covering the most part of an 80x25 console in as small amount of code as possible.

    Creativity counts as always.

    Ooh, and the winner get one of my chickens.

    EDIT:

    Smiley must resemble a circle or eclipse.

    Smiley must be greater than or equal in size 20 x 40 (20 lines by 40 characters)

    Smiley may consist of any or multiple ASCII characters.

    Smiley does not have to 'smile' it may frown, wink, or anything you like.

    Code must compile with either the gcc or g++ compiler.

    Smallest code isn't always the best
    Largest code isn't always the best

    Be creative.

    Contest ends on Friday 21st of January, at noon GMT. (^_^)

    That practically begs for rules explanations. I'm assuming it would be judged by characters. What exactly does it mean to be "an ascii image of a smiley covering the most part of an 80x25 console"? For instance, I would argue that a smiley is always round, and so fits in 25x25 just as well as it does in 80x25.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein
