100 brand new emojis sure to be sweeping the Internet any minute now.
Been waiting too long for the means to express when I feel this way. (Via)
There just aren't enough emojis to properly represent the human emotional landscape yet, and we can't rely on Congress to get off their butts and remedy the problem. Thankfully, some people are taking matters into their own hands. These 100 brand new, much needed emojis were created by Avery Monsen, a comedian, illustrator, and co-author of All My Friends Are Dead (you might know him best as the frustrated contestant on 30 Rock's fake game show "Homonym").
Avery has birthed a hundred new, extremely specific emojis, conveniently cramming them all into the 6 second Vine video below. Click on the Vine to pause for a random view of emojis like "Sad Bone Saw," "Donald Trump Getting Chased By Bees," and "The Orb Knows What You Did."
We asked Avery what drove him to selflessly bring so many new emojis into the world.
"I feel strongly that nobody should have to combine emojis to tell their friends that they’re dropkicking a bees nest into a community pool," Avery explained. "In the time it’d take you to find all the emojis to spell it out, you could’ve kicked two or three more bees nests into that community pool. To me, that’s unacceptable."
For a much smaller but less chaotic viewing of all the emojis, here they are in a little tiny chart.
I've been hesitating on texting my condolences to my friend who lost his grandmother recently, waiting for the right emoji to express the utter futility of mortal human strife in this universe. I think Avery's given it to me:
