You have suffered without red-headed emoji for too long. That changes Tuesday

I find it quite disconcerting that it took just as long to integrate ancient Mayan numerals (which are pretty much one of the first examples of a written numeric system) as it did to put in a picture of Broccoli.

I mean... seriously. Emojis, etc. - sure. But do the important things that are much closer to the purpose of Unicode first.

No researcher out there is quietly crying out for a symbol of broccoli in their fonts in order to record, categorise and translate their ancient documentation.
