So...there's really no classy way to say this. The Unicode Consortium just revealed its latest emoji update, set to release in 2019. And among that 200+ emojis is the 'tiny penis' emoji that nobody asked for, but everyone is talking about.
This will be part of Unicode's 12.0 update, although we may not be seeing it for a while yet. Some of the new emojis are goofy, some are woke, and they're all entertaining. Unicode has introduced its entire assortment, so check them out! Plenty of people are already planning out how they're going to use the new additions.
See what your top-used emojis for this year will be, and what people are saying about it!
Unicode Consortium is the nonprofit behind our emojis.And in 2019, it's bringing a total of 230 new emojis to our phones!
One of the emojis on the list is...kind of suggestive.

But, of course, that's not ALL it could be used for.
We all know what this is going to be used for #emoji12 https://t.co/gzK6EF7ypd— Sam Perry (@Sam Perry)1549456611.0
The people of Twitter were thinking of something else.

And yeah, there have also been a few memes surfacing...Oh, Ross. Those gloves look a little big on ya.
So put this emoji to good use.Yeah, that checks out. I'm pretty sure a lot of people will be venting about their exes like this.
It also got a tad political.

Actually, some people think Trump got a couple of emojis out of this.
@TheLastLeg is it wrong that Trump is getting two emoji's to describe him? #pinchinghand #orangutan— noam Leshem (@noam Leshem)1549531880.0
Ladies and gents, we have a winner.Based on hype alone, pinching-hand is the clear frontrunner of the pack.
It's just so universally usable.Hey, don't jump to a conclusion! We could be describing the size of anything with that pinching hand.
Of course, there are 229 other emojis, too.And we're about to have the whole rainbow (and more) at our fingertips.
Not that everyone is fond of the new colors.I'm sure someone, somewhere, is happy that we'll have brown hearts now. For some reason.
