Sony's T200 Cybershot Photographs Smiles Automatically

So, if someone was frowning and you flipped the camera upside down, would it still take the picture, or be smart enough not to? Would it realize that the bottom of the face was now the top?

I'm getting one of these cameras just to test this theory, and just because I think it would be hilarious to walk around with and hold down in the middle of a crowded area to snap people's pictures with.
