Do you find yourself at a loss in conversations due to the nonexistence of a smiling or frowning poop emoji to get your point across? Feel that your conversations about great punk albums just don’t work without a picture of a safety pin to illustrate them?
Have no fear: Unicode is on the case with 67 new proposed emojis!
The Unicode Consortium listed 67 new draft icons — including the above — for possible inclusion in next year’s 2018 emoji set. Unicode Consortium President Mark Davis unveiled the new emojis during the quarterly Unicode Technical Committee meeting.
And, yes, before you ask, that’s a real quarterly meeting to decide whether the world lacks a “frowning poop” or “blue face with clenched teeth and icicles” emoji.
Proposed new emojis for 2018
The full list is below:
Smiling Face With Cape
Serious Face With Eye Mask And Cape
Face With Smiling Eyes And Party Horn And Party Hat
Face With Uneven Eyes And Wavy Mouth
Red Face With Tongue Sticking Out With Bead Of Sweat
Blue Face With Clenched Teeth And Icicles
Frowning Face With Question Marks As Eyes
Grinning Face With Letters Ok As Eyes
Frowning Pile Of Poo
Face With Glistening Eyes
Top Of Head With Red Hair
Top Of Head With Curly Hair
Top Of Head With No Hair
Top Of Head With White Hair
Woman’s Flat Shoe
Lacrosse Stick And Ball
Jigsaw Puzzle Piece
Spool Of Thread

Bar Of Soap
A final decision on the emojis will be made in coming months, culminating in a meeting scheduled for October 2017. The winning candidates will receive their official code points early next year, and arrive on our phones by late 2018. So maybe hold off on the conversations about balls of yarn or favorite eye mask and cape combos until then?
