Smiling Grey Neopets?



Many Neopians have come to adore their irresistibly adorable grey pets. Whether it's because of their large cherry pink eyes, dismayed expressions, or eternal hopelessness, we have fallen in love.

In an attempt to express my love and affection for all grey pets, I have composed these fool proof steps in making your grey pet smile...

"Now, troops, today is a very special day: we're welcoming some new recruits to our ranks. They're – Johnson!" he suddenly snapped. "Private Johnson, what in Neopia do you think you're doing?"
