When ascii goes horribly, horribly wrong

I wanted to ascii fist bump the bf and was so excited to find the ascii art dictionary. Unfortunately when I copy and pasted a fist bump into aim this happened:


See that hardcore privacy filter I used? Graphic designers weep ;)
It emoticonned my knuckles! And yes, my default AIM smileys are pirates. Yes, they've been pirates since before Johnny Depp. No, they're not changing anytime soon.

Even worse - look at what happened when I tried pasting the fist bump into this blog:
                        _    ,-,    _
                 ,--, /: :\/': :`\/: :\
                |`;  ' `,'   `.;    `: |
                |    |     |  '  |     |.
                | :  |     |      |     ||
                | :. |  :  |  :  |  :  | \
                 \__/: :.. : :.. | :.. |  )
                      `---',\___/,\___/ /'
                           `==._ .. . /'
                                `-::-'

This is why ascii is a dead art.
