When chatting on Yahoo! Messenger, it is common to express emotions using an "audible." Audibles are cartoon characters that speak and change facial expressions. Yahoo! Messenger offers a lot of standard audibles, but it is possible to "break the mould" with a variety of different unique animations of cartoon characters that say funny, loving and even provocative things in a humorous-sounding voice. Many audibles are also available in other languages.
