New emojis let you throw shade with style
New emoji icons are on the horizon and the internet is getting way to giddy just thinking about all the new ways to throw shade with a smiley face.
Later this year we could be telling friends to shut up with a smile, or share a spew with disgust.
Question logic with a Colbert brow Or get offended with a fancy monocle.
But none of this is official yet, you see in June a new batch of emoji are said to be approved by the Unicode consortium.
That's the governing body of the emoji world and more than 50 of these are currently being proposed, including some fantastical ones, like merpeople, fairies, vampires and elves.
THe folks at emojipedia stirred up all the excitement by making some sample art of what these icons could look like.
Now once approved, tech companies like Apple and Google have to make their own art and add the emoji to their various platforms, and only until that happens will we get to send dinosaurs, hedgehogs, orange hearts, and get naked with a spoon Yeah, that's supposed to be a sauna, people.
Emojis may also better represent different people.
In the list is a woman with a hijab, a bearded man, gender neutral adults, and even a breastfeeding momma.
But it's not until June that these will even be given the green light.
And it will be even longer before it hits your keyboard I know you want to use that curling stone now, but you will just have to wait.
