This Dog's Unfortunate Haircut Had Her Owner in Tears

Don't be too sad, the tears weren't real, they were emoji.


Josh posted the before and after pictures of his dog on Twitter and the reactions from his friends weren't exactly helpful. That poor little dog. At least it'll all grow back, right?

Melding the bright colors and imagination of Inside Out and the crude, everything’s for sale cynicism of Trolls, Sony Pictures is delighted to present The Emoji Movie, and even they seem a little “meh” on it.

Following the story of what your Emoji keyboard is really up to when you’re not frantically Googling “What is life supposed to mean anyway?” The Emoji Movie boasts a star-studded cast including “Smiley Face” and “Poop Emoji,” who, get this, has a really dignified voice!

Ugh. Why is this happening? Oh, right, we’re in hell.

Sony Released an official synopsis, which, jeez, what’s going on where they had to make this movie?

The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis [Ed. Come on], a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user [Ed. Stop]. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Ilana Glazer). Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” [Ed. Who is this joke for?] through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever. Directed by Tony Leondis. Written by Tony Leondis & Eric Siegel and Mike White. Produced by Michelle Raimo Kouyate.”

The Emoji Movie opens August 4, so you better start calling your state and local representatives now.

london company today translations is looking for an emoji translator

Are you fluent in Emoji? Well, a London company has just the job for you.

According to the BBC, Today Translations, a language firm in London, is looking for a person to help aid in the “challenges posed by the world’s fastest-growing language.” This is going to help a lot of parents understand a lot of text messages.

This most-important of jobs would be joining the company’s “global network of over 3,000 linguists, with expertise in over 200 languages - as its first dedicated expert in this rapidly evolving form of international communication.” Think about it, this is probably the first step to getting to choose Emjoi as a language class in high school over German.

via GIPHY

The ad continues “Emoji translation is itself an emerging field - but one dominated to date by software, which is often insensitive to the many cultural differences in usage and interpretation. We are therefore seeking an exceptional individual to provide the human touch needed where translation software is inadequate - and to help us become the go-to translation experts in this area.” You would be the first emoji translator in the world, possibly.

Do you fit these qualifications? If so, you can check out the ad today, and you might on the way to a new job.

Have you ever been so hungry that you can only speak in pictures? Have you ever been so hungry that you can type the full word “hamburger”?

Well, you’re time is here, because as of now, you can search Google using emojis — with a few caveats. It’s not like you can just go to Google and put in an emoji burger. You have to do it through Google’s Twitter page. Simply Tweet an emoji to @Google, and they’ll respond with a corresponding search result. It’s that easy.

via @Google

So basically, if you want to see what the best burger is in town, simply send them a burger emoji, and they send back some suggestions.

Mashable says, “Google says the feature will work with over 200 different emoji for food, sites and activities near you. It's also promising some ‘easter eggs.’”

This news is both good and scary, depending on your feelings regarding the peach and eggplant emojis. Proceed with caution.

izod made ken bone a twitter emoji for the election

So it’s come to this: Ken Bone is now an emoji.

I suppose we have no one to blame but ourselves. After all, as soon as he popped his mustachioed face onto our TV screens during the second presidential debate, we were hooked. We wanted to be Ken Bone. We wanted to idolize Ken Bone. We wanted to turn Ken Bone into a sexy Halloween costume. We wanted to search out Ken Bone’s sketchy history on Reddit. We got our wish.

via GIPHY

All of that was leading to this moment. Izod, the official sponsor of Ken Bone, has made the infamous undecided voter a Twitter emoji. With his squared off glasses, brisling facial hair, and signature, red Izod sweater, Ken Bone was born to be an emoji, and now he is one. Forever etched into the history books, the name "Ken Bone" has a symbol that future generations will ponder over, study, and perhaps worship just as we have. Simply use the hashtag #MyVote2016 on Twitter, and he'll appear, watching, protecting, tagging.

In the end, maybe this is where things were always heading. Andy Warhol famously said that in the future everyone would have their 15 minutes of fame, but maybe what he really meant was everyone would have their own emoji. Just look at him, staring back at you, asking a seemingly innocent question about clean energy. What does he look like? Does he resemble all of us, perhaps?

If you stare long enough at the Ken Bone emoji, the Ken Bone emoji stares back.

Frankly, I’m just a little dizzy from the whole thing. Reach out if you even know what’s going on anymore.

So don’t expect the same old thing when you laugh at your friend’s joke later. This is a whole new haunted house.

  • “Haha” is now a Witch.

Facebook released reactions last year in lieu of giving the world that “Dislike” button users have been asking for since around 2010.

It’s all very delightfully ghoulish!
