Few things really get the general public amped up these days with everything that’s going on in the world. But if there’s one thing we can get excited about it’s a crop of new emoji just waiting to flood our text messages and social media posts.
Emojipedia released their list of 69 (he he) new emoji in version 5.0, several of which we’re happily finding reasons to apply IRL.
There’s some helpful new faces that you can use when the squad asked why you disappeared last night.
BFF: Where’d you go?
You: Had to [insert puke face] and then i into the ex and well… [insert shhhh face]
And we’ve been #blessed with 12 new foods to sink our teeth into.
Mom: What do you want for dinner?
You: [insert steak emoji]
Mom: I get [steak], you get [broccoli]
But these ones, these are the emoji that get me all 😍 👏
A mermaid, but more important, a MERMAN for all those times you reference Zoolander with your friends.
Friend: You coming to the beach with us this weekend?
Me: [insert mermaid emoji]
Lord of the Rings fans will rejoice over the two elves. Or more accurately Lady Galadriel and Celeborn. What?! I’m not a nerd you are!
Friend: You wanna go out tonight?
Me: Nah, gonna stay in my PJs and watch all 3 extended LOTR
M: [elves] > hangovers
And for the mamas out there, a breastfeeding woman because we deserve it, dammit!
Me: Running 15 min late. LO going through a growth spurt. #MomLife [insert breastfeeding emoji]
Fellow mom: say no more, see you soon!
There’s also male and female rock climbers and yogis, you know, for people who have their shit together enough to do both of those activities. There’s also a man and woman in a steam room, but I will be using that one, in fact, to tell my husband I ate cereal in the shower.
Now what are the odds Emojipedia adds this delightful “The Rock” inspired face?
