Emojis were originally only available in Japan until they made their way across the world. Originally meaning pictograph, the word emoji literally means “picture” (e) + “character” (mojo). Some emoji are very specific to Japanese culture, such as a bowing (apologizing) businessman, a face wearing a face mask, a white flower used to denote “brilliant homework” or a group of emoji representing popular foods: ramen noodles, dango, onigiri or Japanese curry.
Rejected Emojis you won’t forget
If you are an avid user of emojis, you may have wanted to express something in the past but did not not have the available emoji to do so. These are the best rejected emojis that don’t exist but definitely should. You can find rejected emojis like a man screaming at a spider, crying in the shower, a happy fart or my favourite, a talking pizza. [via distractify]
