Given that America has reached new levels of what-the-fuckery, we are in desperate need of new ways to express ourselves. Where words often fail us, emojis are the answer, and Apple’s newest crop offers two much needed additions: the shrug and the face palm. Honorable mention goes to the “fingers crossed” (as in, “fingers crossed emoji” Trump does not become our president).
According to emojipedia, roughly 75 emojis will become available later this month, with the iOS 10.2 update. And while there are plenty of timely and lolz additions (selfie, gorilla, avocado, a “call me” hand), our favorites are the new career options for emoji women, which include firefighter, judge and astronaut.
See guys, not everything sucks!
