Gingers, Cupcake, Swan Among Proposed Emojis for 2018

Newly proposed guidelines under consideration by the Unicode Consortium, the non-profit group that maintains Unicode as the global standard for symbols across software platforms, could soon radically change the way we use emojis.

And you think to yourself, "Look at how talented these enterprising young rodents are", and "I would like to celebrate this opus by recreating it using emoji", like so:. While this is unfortunate for users who want to text a picture of a dismayed pile of poop, it's nice to know that the list is being continually updated to best reflect a combination of efficiency and the needs of their audience.
