How does ~0~ mean summer?

Asked by MyNewtBoobs (19026points) June 2nd, 2010

I saw it as some text lingo recently, and I just don’t understand how that came to pass. I understand emoticons and abbreviations like jk, nm, and lol, but all of those are based on the idea that the two are somehow connected. What’s the connection between ~0~ and summer?

Maybe it represents the sun and two “rays”. That’s the first thing that came to mind.

Ive never seen that particular emoticon, but @aprilsimnel‘s suggestion seems reasonable. A more recognizable symbol would’ve been =O= or >O< or something, but they look more like faces to me (they probably are, in Japanese txtspk.)

Really, if I were to shorten the word “summer” I would probably say “smr” or something. Not that I would even want to do that, since I dislike text language.

I have not heard that one and Urbandictionary didn’t help. It only revealed that ”~0” is a sperm cell. :P

I’ve never seen this before but…is it a sunset over the sea?...as in in the summer you sit on a beach and watch the sun go down? the wiggly bit’s being the waves and the 0 being the sun?
