What’s the Most Popular Emoji in Every State?

I’m not sure if you can learn a lot about an entire state by the emojis they like . . . but I’m happy to pretend you can and stereotype away.

A new study found the EMOJI that’s the most popular in every state.  Here are some of the highlights . . .

1.  Getting this out of the way:  The poop is number one in five states.  They are:  Arizona . . . Wyoming . . . North Dakota . . . Wisconsin . . . and New Jersey.

2.  There are two states where the ANGRY face is number one:  Kansas and New Hampshire.  And in Arkansas, Delaware, and Pennsylvania, the sad crying face is number one.

3.  There are 10 states where the most popular emoji is a smiling face or the “laughing so hard I’m crying” face:  Alaska . . . Ohio . . . Tennessee . . . Alabama . . . North Carolina . . . West Virginia . . . Utah . . . Montana . . . Maine . . . and Rhode Island.

4.  And as for the perverts of the country . . . the eggplant, which people almost always use to represent male genitalia, is number one in three states:  Idaho . . . Missouri . . . and Virginia.

5.  And the peach . . . which looks like a butt . . . is number one in Texas and Michigan.  And just to show people ONLY use it as a butt, it’s NOT number one in Georgia, where they’re all about peaches.  Their top emoji is the apple for some reason.


26% of People Have Had Their Day Ruined By a Negative Comment on Social Media

Social media is all about putting yourself out there . . . and sometimes, you aren’t going to like what all the horrible people in the world throw back.

According to a new survey, 26% of people say they’ve had their day RUINED by a comment on social media.  On the other hand, 61% of people say they’ve had their day MADE by a comment, so maybe those odds make it worth taking the chance.

The survey also found more than half of people say they don’t care if the photos they post get “likes” or not.  Sure.


Nearly A Dozen Sharks Found Swimming In New York Home’s Basement

The sharks included the sandbar variety, a protected species.

A recent search of a New York home’s basement led to the discovery of more than half a dozen sharks swimming inside of an above ground pool, conservation authorities announced Wednesday.

In all, seven live sandbar sharks, as well as two dead leopard sharks and one dead hammerhead shark, were found inside of the Lagrangeville property on Aug. 23. The home, roughly 75 miles north of New York City, was suspected of harboring illegal wildlife, the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) said.

The animals, which were described as swimming in a 15-feet-diameter pool, were captured “with ease” before being measured, tagged and having their blood taken. They were then transported to the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead, which shared updates on their condition Thursday.
