Face with finger covering closed lips

New emoji are expected to be released in a couple of months, and Emojipedia on Thursday offered up a look at all 69 new candidates. Here are our favorites

This emoji has the most potential when you want to throw social media shade at people you've never met online. A quick shush is much fewer characters than typing out entirely "never tweet." For now, it's the closest emoji to say "stfu" with some subtlety.

Face with monocle

This emoji is essentially the thinking face, just replace the hand on the chin with a monocle on the right eye. Just look at how perturbed this emoji is.

Face with one eyebrow raised

It's like a toned down version of the thinking face emoji, for when you're skeptical of something, but don't want to be too rude about it.

Grinning face with one large and one small eye

This description is easily the most specific one. I look forward to this crazy-eyed emoji replacing the tears laughing one.

Broccoli

This emoji is going to reach the same status that eggplants and peaches do, as code for something else. Thanks, Big Baby D.R.A.M.!
