Welcome to Emoticon Zendo Game 78.

Thank you to Peter Chilton for a clever game 77!

Game 78 is over.
Congratulations to Jpwoo, who correctly discovered that:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
A koan is of the buddha nature if it contains an animal emoticon, next to a food emoticon.


To see a list of all the games, click here.
See also the Emoticon Zendo Wiki.
Consider the Spock rule.

Emoticon Zendo Rules:
-All BGG users start with exactly one guessing token.
-There is no "Mondo" -- there is only "Master" and guessing
-There are no turns, but no one user may do "master" (asking about a koan) two consecutive times (i.e. he must wait for another player to do "master" in between). A user may "guess" the rule twice consecutively only if there was a "master" from another user, and at least an hour has passed since the first guess. A user may do a "master" and then make a guess consecutively.
-Your first guess is free. Additional guesses cost 1 GeekGold. The GG should be submitted as a tip to this thread. The student with the first correct guess (the winner) will win all the GG as a prize.
-Please thumb the main thread if you participate.

Emoticon Zendo Conventions:
-Koans are built from a single line of emoticons. No letters/numbers/etc.
-The 2nd emoticon from the left is in 'position #2', etc.
-I will use thumbsup and thumbsdown to answer each "master", so please don't use these emoticons in your Koan.

Here is an example of a Koan of length 4 which has a smiley face in position #3:

A koan has the Buddha nature if it contains a camel in position #2

A koan has the Buddha nature if it has the same number of camels as wheat symbols, and at least one of each

Unfortunately, consider this koan, which does not have the Buddha nature:
