In case you haven’t heard (or are just too lazy to do the new update), there’s some hot new emojis in town to spice up our conversations. From coffee mugs to pins, to clothing and cheesy pillows at the mall kiosk, emojis have taken over our lives and give us infinite ways to express ourselves in more flirty and sarcastic ways than ever before.
We got the Two Buttons Deep squad together to run through our rankings for the best and worst new emojis. Agree? Disagree? Tell us what you think.
“I’ve been waiting for this emoji for what feels like forever. We’ve needed an emoji that lets us communicate that we’re cold or just plain heartless. Plus, black is a pretty awesome color.” –Morgan
“Finally, some equality. Mrs. C is just as important as Santa Claus himself. But it’s not just this emoji that I love. A lot of new profession-based emojis were added for both male/ female roles in the new update. I appreciate the effort to create equality in the emoji world, because duh.” –Molly
The Shrug (x2)
“The shrug emoji was arguably the most overdue and without question the best addition. Perfect for a passive aggressive response to a statement you find particularly dissatisfying ,to sheepishly accepting a compliment when someone acknowledges how great you are. Also I will have tons of free time now that I won’t constantly be searching “Michael+Jordan+shrug+gif,” “Marshall+Eriksen+shrug+gif,” and most importantly “Jerry+Elaine+shrug+gif.” –Connor
“Why? Because it literally looks like me, and literally is me a majority of the time. I can now properly express my most common emotion via an emoji, which is big news.” –Jack
“I will be the first one to say this is a semi-pointless emoji and will rarely be applicable, but it’s my favorite because it is so damn realistic. Like are we sure this isn’t just a photo of an egg? I love it. Totally stands out from the crowd and makes me wanna work it into my most frequently used category ASAP.” –Taylor
“I hate, hate, hate clowns. Ever since I was little I’ve hated them. Maybe it was the movie IT or maybe it was the a**hole who chased me through a haunted house when I was 15. Not sure, but I hate those creepy jerks. As if the creepy clown incident of 2016 wasn’t enough.” –Molly
Gorilla (or Harambe)
“This would have been hated 100,000x more if Harambe was still as popular as he once was, but every single “Apple Introduced A New Gorilla Emoji and You Can Probably Guess What People Are Saying!” story still fuels my hatred. No love for Harambe, no remorse for Harambe, no hand jobs for Harambe, and no emoji for Harambe. GTFO.” –Connor
Rolling on the floor laughing, or ROFL
