Brace yourselves: a new batch of emojis is coming out soon. It includes necessary and long-awaited inclusive emojis like interracial couples and differently abled-themed ones. But it's also clear that some of the new additions are just for fun. A drop of blood, a smiling otter, an oyster (with a pearl inside!) and the much-talked-about pinching emoji are just some of the remarkable launches among over 50 new emoji variants.
The pinching hand
The smiling otter
The kneeling emoji
Best for: when you've completely given up all hope, when you're desperately begging, when it's already Friday and you find out there's a need to do some overtime, when you didn't save eight hours worth of work and now it's all gone or when you tried to do yoga and this is the only position you can master.
Example 1: "I beg you, please don't eat all the pizza. Have mercy on my (and your) stomach."
Example 2: "Hey, girl! I did yoga today for the first time after the holidays and this is what happened... The yoga instructor was like, 'Okay, now transition to Eka Hasta Vrksasana.' And then I was like... "
Example 3: "What is my life? "
Best for: when you need to patch things up with someone, when you need to cover up something or when you're comforting someone who's emotionally wounded
Example 1: "I know. Life is tough but you need to pick yourself up and put on some and lipstick."
Example 2: "Hey, aunt! My mom is so mad at you after you forgot to return her Tupperware. You have to come here and return it soon. So you can things up."
The hanging sloth
Best for: when you want a coy but dramatic entrance in a group chat or when you're about to fall but you're still hanging in there
Example 1: "Oh, you're asking me how work is? Hmm, well I'm still there. "
Example 2: "Hey, besties, how's it hangin'? "
