Emojis: every iPhone user loves them and every non-iPhone user dreams about them (don't lie, you know it's true). It's pretty obvious that Apple did something right in creating emojis. I mean, I don't think I'd be able to switch from using an iPhone because I love the emojis so much. (Maybe that's an addiction issue...?) But after using an iPhone for the past 10 months I've realized that some emojis are totally and completely usesless.
I MEAN REALLY.
All those different books?
Is this really necessary?
I vote that we get rid of that stupid protractor (geometry nightmares, hello) and insert an emoji that does the eye roll. I've needed that emoji more than once. PROOF:
I also would have used it here:
COME ON, EMOJI PEOPLE.
Get it together.
Give me an emoji that's kind of tinted green and maybe one that's throwing up so I can use it when
I'm hungover I have the stomach flu. DUH.
I mean really...are you using any of these? If you're using the American flag you probably also tweet some form of this a lot: #MERICA. So obviously you need your American flag using rights revoked, which isn't very American at all but let's be real: some things need to happen. And why isn't there a Canadian flag? Faith, are you mad about that? Or does Canada have different emojis?
Why do we need a floppy disk (disc??) emoji? Or a beeper? Or all those CDs?? Or a fax machine??
Get rid of some of those dumb emojis and GIVE ME ONES I CAN USE.
Like an emoji with a shaking head.
PLEASE, EMOJI GODS, PLEASE.
Also, I think there should be some kind of emoji or special font that portrays sarcasm.
I'd use it ALL THE TIME.
I would also appreciate an emoji that was sticking one finger up in the air.
Just one finger. The middle finger.
I'd have used it here:
And can we talk about the food emojis for a minute?
I don't even know what half of those things ARE. Take away the stupid skewer things and give me a bowl of cereal, a sandwich, a pie, or a burrito! And if you HAVE to have the sushi then fine, Apple has my permission to leave it there. And if there was a barfing emoji I would use it next to the sushi all the time.
|Could have used a burrito emoji.|
|ALSO could have used a burrito emoji.|
Along those same lines, give me a drooling emoji so when people post pictures of their food and drinks I can reply with an emoji that accurately portrays what's happening to my face at that moment.
But I think we can all agree on the food emoji the world is lacking the most.
Where is the taco emoji??
Sami noticed too.
APPLE, THIS IS A PROBLEM.
There's a simple solution.
Get rid of some of the stupid emojis and give me some better ones.
It shouldn't be that hard. There's another iPhone update soon, right? Just add some new emojis and make the people happy. Has anyone even used that weird french horn thing up there, anyway? Does it have legs? Is it walking? HOW DOES THAT MAKE SENSE??? It doesn't. AT ALL.
What emojis would you get rid of?
What emojis would you add?
