Wizards, Elves And Merpeople: 69 New Emojis

March 28, 2017


These are the 69 newest emojis confirmed by the Unicode Consortium to be released for smartphones later this year as Emoji 5.0. Highlights include an exploding head, puking face, Mr. Peanut, breastfeeding mother, a wizard and sorceress, fairies, vampires, merpeople, elves, genies, monsters, dinosaurs, a steak, sandwich, and a UFO. Which do you think you'll be using the most? Personally, I'm not going to use any of them, because I don't update my phone. Updating your phone is just an opportunity for the government to get in there and snoop around, and the last thing I need is Uncle Sam performing a cavity search. Know what I'm saying? "You have a balloon full of stolen diamonds in your anus?" Close -- tiger's eye.

Keep going for a video tour of each new emoji.

Thanks to Stephanie B, who agrees they need to make an emoji of the world exploding.

  • So we have a bunch more useless ones to add to all the other useless ones and bury the 12 or so that people actually use? Also there are so many that they could actually use but instead create a goddamn mermaid and curling stone? How about an awkward face that isn't a robot?

    Man I am worked up about this. Haha!

    Bout time to start calling the new ones "shitmojis". As clever as those new emojis are terrible, right?

    I feel like the more of these you add, the less useful they become. I'm not going to bother searching through....however many hundred emojis exist now, to find

    one that conveys what I want.

    An emoji can be suggested when typing a word. Different words could suggest the same emoji, and different emojis can be suggested by the same word as well, in order of how frequently you use a suggested emoji. A lot of devices must already do similar things, since my phone suggests emojis all the time, I just can't confirm about others because I only use the Android version LG and Metro decide to put in my phone.

  • Roofus Doofus

    I can't find the 69 emoji. I was looking forward to using that one

  • James Mcelroy

    Breastfeeding mom? I thought it was the "I show you my boob" emoji.

  • JJtoob

    Emojis also have a history to be used for alternate uses. Just nothing you should trust news outlets to inform you about, though lol.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    I'm surprised they would make something so pornographic into an emoji. /s

  • Kateness

    "Person in steamy room"... WTF?

    I often find myself yearning to text my friends (I actually don't have friends.. imaginary count?) but have never had the proper emoji to accurately express myself via said emoji's. Well hellalujah! I will soon be able to tell everyone I'm in a steamy room with the new emoji. IE: The chick with a spoon in her hand. Yes!

  • TheQiwiMan

    Emojis are a major step back in human communication. Even more ambiguous than just text.

  • James Mcelroy

    What's that supposed to mean?

  • JJtoob

    LOL that was amazing!
