From our friends at Uproxx:

the Kalamazoo Growlers of the collegiate summer baseball Northwoods League will be wearing a SALUTE TO SELFIES jersey during a game in July. If you heard that description and thought, "what is that, a jersey covered in selfies," BINGO, welcome to Hell.

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

Raised back of hand
Left-facing fist
Right-facing fist
