In a lot of ways, I’m still a goofy adolescent, regardless of what my stomach’s tolerance for fast food might indicate.  As such, I really enjoy the idea of the emoji (though I think of them as an extension of the emoticons we used in the early days of the Internet) where a colon and a close-parentheses gave your jokes a little extra kick.  My recent phone upgrade brought with it a ton of new emojis to play with, including a Vulcan salute to make my inner geek happy, and even though some people hate the very idea of a little yellow smiley face, we are led to today’s anthropomorphic query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will still say that I’m not sure about the idea of ‘The Emoji Movie’, though, asking: What’s the best emoji of them all?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. I’m very unfamiliar with emojis in general (I do not have a cell and I don’t often use the emoticon/emoji stickers for forums or messengers or the like), but I like the variation of happy face with the “crazy” look (I don’t know what it is actually called) with one eye bigger than the other (not winking or closed) and the smile kinda lopsided.
