Yep, the Seinfeld version of the Emoji app is here. Because sometimes, a smiling pile of poop can't convey what a fluffy shirt will.

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

If you go to Facebook’s house this Halloween, expect a big treat. The social media giant has released a slew of new reactions in the spirit of Halloween. All your favorites are there: a witch, a ghost, a pumpkin, a Frankenst — oop, a Frankenstein’s monster.

So don’t expect the same old thing when you laugh at your friend’s joke later. This is a whole new haunted house.

  • “Haha” is now a Witch.
  • “Wow” is now a Ghost.
  • “Sad” is now a Frankenstein. “Sad” is now a Frankenstein’s monster.
  • “Angry” is now a pumpkin.

It’s all very delightfully ghoulish!

Facebook released reactions last year in lieu of giving the world that “Dislike” button users have been asking for since around 2010.
