Finally, The Shaka Emoji Is Coming

Finally, The Shaka Emoji Is Coming

Only it will be known as the "call me" emoji?

The Emoji Subcommittee (yes that’s an actual committee) has decreed that in 2016 there will 38 more emojis for us all to use. Some of the highlights include, Raised Back Of Hand, Face Palm, Wilted Flower, Avocado, Cucumber, Bacon and the Call Me Hand. What is a call me hand? Well all of you young hip cats would most likely recognise it as a shaka. Bruh:

We could waste some time bemoaning what a ridiculous name for an emoji this is, or just be grateful that finally one of the world's great emoji problems has finally be rectified. If you have a bit of time you shuold definitely flick through THIS upcoming emoji list, if only for the completely serious notes made next to each option, such as above, or this for the left-facing fist:

"May be used in sequence with RIGHT-FACING FIST (each with optional skin tone modifiers) to suggest “fist bump”. Expected usage for such a sequence is high (e.g. 2.5 million Google hits for “fist bump”)."

And this for mother Christmas: "Missing gender pair."

What a time to be alive when the largest of our problems are missing emojis.
