As convenient as it is to sent text messages to people, a lot can go wrong. You might accidentally text the wrong number! You might be betrayed by autocorrect! You might accidentally send a text about your crush to your crush, instead of to your friend like you meant to do. Honestly, it's a wonder anyone manages to successfully send texts at all.
One of the best things to happen to text messages in the last decade is the emoji. Who knew you could communicate so much with a simple picture? (Well, the ancient Egyptians, for one.) Emojis often do the heavy lifting when it comes to sending a message. I mean, sure, you could write the words "I am happy," but a smiley face emoji looks happy!
Of course, emoji use should be taken responsibly. Otherwise, you may end up with some of these messages that definitely have the right text but the completely wrong emoji.
It all started with a game of #HashtagRoundup.

Nice makeup!Unless you're complimenting an actual clown on their clown makeup, this emoji is probably a mistake. (Even if it is sometimes accurate.)
That's not gonna go well.

Ew.If I ever received this text message, I would immediately block that number. Even if it was from my grandma.
We all float down here.

Wrong emoji spotted in the wild!I just checked, and the knife and beer emojis are nowhere near each other in the emoji menu. She knew what she was doing.
