Re: That takes me back

What do we expect as we all sit here, young and old, choosing emojis instead of writing "hey that's shit".

Don't get me started on Emoji's!!!

Shopping last weekend, and in return for an extra shot in my latte (that's not a euphamism), I had to drag our 4 year old around some tat bazar the Mrs wished to browse.

Mini-mrs runs off to find toys to look at, and returns hugging a giant emoji turd. She's grinning ear to ear as she dances about asking if I'll buy it for her. The staff are doubled up laughing as clearly she has no idea what it is she's hugging, it just has big eyes and a large smile.

"Go ask your mam if you can have it."
