They need to start offering Emoji courses because, truthfully, it’s a millennial language all its own (think eggplant 🍆 and peach 🍑 Emoji ). In this hilarious video, a news anchor attempts to decode the ~true~ meaning behind some of Apple’s different symbols, and let’s just say we’re inspired by his, uh, ingenuity. So here’s a compilation of some fresh, new ways to put the latest Emojis to work:
PREGNANT LADY = FOOD BABY
Tbh, we’ve all looked just like this woman after a hearty meal, so I’m not convinced she’s only intended to be used in the context of pregnancy. You cradle that food baby, Karen.
“CALL ME HAND” = COWABUNGA
This is giving me flashbacks to the high-fiving hands versus praying hands debate of 2014. Apple is trying to claim this says, “Call me,” but I think it says, “I’m about to go catch some gnarly waves.” Up to you.
EGG = BEAUTY BLENDER
Continue confusing men with the concept of beauty blenders while texting them by alternating between using the egg Emoji in reference to actual eggs and the ambiguous foundation applicators.
TUMBLER GLASS = BIG OL’ CUP OF LIPTON TEA
It’s not a coincidence that this new “tumbler glass” looks just like the one our friend Kermit the Frog is drinking out of in his infamous Lipton Tea ad. Pair this with the frog Emoji to throw shade with that much more accuracy.
POTATO = A MORE ACCURATE SELF PORTRAIT
Tired of using the female Emoji who looks nothing like you when describing yourself? Apple has created the potato Emoji to solve this dilemma because face it, you’ve felt (and probably looked) exactly like this starchy, tuberous crop at one point or another.
