We have something new to get excited about in the realm of lazy communication.

Yes, just as we’re coming down from the high of the new taco, burrito, and cheese emojis, there’s another batch of symbols vying for a spot on your smartphone.

On Thursday, Unicode Consortium (the non-profit organization that is responsible for emojis) announced 7 new additions to the 67 other possible emoji candidates, all in the realm of food — a shrimp, a squid, an egg, a glass of milk, a peanut, a kiwifruit, and, perhaps most notably…pancakes.

Yes. Yes. A thousand times yes. Typing out “brunch?” has been getting so exhausting.

The new candidates join other food items that are already in contention like bacon, avocado, croissant, carrot, potato, baguette, green salad, paella, and stuffed flatbread (which feels oddly specific, but we can’t say it wouldn’t come in handy from time to time).

The announcement makes it clear that these are merely up for consideration and some may be added and subtracted, but now that we have a taste of what could be it would be just too cruel to take it away from us.

I have an android. We still haven’t gotten the LAST update iOS has gotten. I see squares whenever people send me emojis. Get in it android.

I hope this article will give you a little heads up knowledge on what is out there and not completely scare you into a world where the internet is bad.

Nice post. I be taught one thing more difficult on completely different blogs everyday. It should always be stimulating to read content from other writers and apply somewhat something from their store. I’d choose to use some with the content on my weblog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link in your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
