I guess they could be shaped like

A lot has been written about speech
balloons here. But i couldn't find any

The balloons could say, "I'm
then you could go around being happy
the time to avoid the irony and
embarrassment of being sad and having
an "I'm happy" balloon.
In the linked idea [AfroAssault] complains
of "using cardboard" (to write a thought
balloon), "it takes really long to have to
write down all the words, and then you
can't reuse it. "
If you had an "I'm happy" balloon and you
just stayed happy all the time, you
wouldn't want to say anything except,
happy", and it would always be true, and
you wouldn't have to write anything new
or change it ever. You could just tie the
I'm happy speech balloon to an ear so
it floated above your head and you could
walk around smiling and being right and
not even actually moving your vocal
chords but still communicating in real
time with everybody.

||Nitrous balloon, that way one has some spare "happiness" in case of unhappiness.
||A whiteboard marker should write on the surface of a helium balloon quite happily. Then you could create your own thoughts.
