Next Year’s Crop of Emojis Could Include a Sad Poop, a Hippo, a Bagel, and Toilet Paper

It’s important to pay attention when new emojis come out, since I’m pretty sure they are now our primary form of communication.

The Unicode Consortium is the group that regulates emojis and picks what will make the official set . . . that then goes out to Apple, Google, Twitter, and the rest to add to your phone.  And they just announced their final candidates for next year.

There’s no guarantee these will get picked, but they PROBABLY will next June.  And then you could see them on your phone by the end of the year.  Here are some of the best ones . . .

1.  Smiley face with superhero cape.

2.  The poop but with a SAD FACE.

3.  Animals including a kangaroo, llama, peacock, hippo, and lobster.

4.  Foods like a mango, sliced bagel, and cupcake.

5.  A skateboard.

6.  A brick wall.

7.  A teddy bear.

8.  And a roll of toilet paper.


There Are Peanut Butter and Jelly Oreos and Cookie Butter Oreos Coming Soon

Oreo has gone so insane with all of their limited-edition flavors that now it seems like they can’t even keep track of what they’ve released and when it’s coming out.

They just separately announced two new types of Oreos:  Peanut Butter and Jelly . . . and Cookie Butter.

The PB&J ones are in all Kroger stores right now . . . and the Cookie Butter ones are scheduled to come out next month.

A Chicken Restaurant Has Created a Dipping Sauce That Tastes Like Rock Star Sweat

I’ll eat some weird stuff, but not JAPAN-level weird.

A fried chicken chain in Tokyo called Tenka Torimasu just created a new dipping sauce that’s flavored like SWEAT.  Specifically the sweat from a band called Kamen Joshi.

Fortunately it’s not made with REAL sweat.  They took the sweat from the band and figured out they could sort of replicate it with a mix of salt, lemon juice, and cheese.  And now people can dip their chicken tenders in that.  Cool.
