The Unicode Consortium responsible for standardizing text characters and emoji across different platforms recently announced that they'll be unleashing a new batch of characters for 2016. You can see some of the highlights above from Yahoo, including the much-requested "selfie" and "bacon" emoji.

The elephant in the room, however, is the lack of a taco emoji. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO EXPRESS TACO BELL REGRET, UNICODE CONSORTIUM? You expect me to use my words like an Actual Human Being? That's gosh-dang absurd and you know it.

If you're curious the emoji subcommittee (again a Real Thing and not something we just made up) has some explanations for their selections. Otherwise, here's a list of what's the come in 2016:

Face with cowboy hat
Clown face
Nauseated face
Rolling on the floor laughing
Drooling face
Lying face
“Call me” hand

But how do you Instagram with it?

Pay phones aren’t extinct quite yet, but this boy has apparently never seen one.

His mom recorded his reaction to the strange contraption, which appears to completely baffle him.

He studies it carefully and asks: “Is this an old fashioned phone?”

Meanwhile the mom must be unfamiliar with mobile technology, considering she recorded the whole thing as a vertical video.
