You know how it goes, you’re on your lunch break and you’ve just bought a delicious baguette, so delicious in fact, you feel compelled to text your friend to describe how good it is, but you’re busy so you go to send a baguette emoji and…there is none!
But worry no longer, because the brains behind the worldwide phenomenon that is the emoji are busy hatching plans for 67 new ones, including a baguette!
The shortlist created by a shadowy group called the Unicode Consortium, who make the final call on the pop culture hieroglyphs, will be voted on next May.
Other highlights of the 67 candidates include:
An Avocado (AN AVOCADO!)
A drooling face
A man in a tuxedo
Two strips of bacon (#breakfast)
An octagonal sign (invaluable)
A wilted flower ( : ( )
A face with a cowboy hat
Once the blessed emojis have been chosen, they should be available to download from June. Imagine the uproar if the avocado doesn’t make the cut?
