Inspired by Kim Kardashian's recent transformation into a real peach emoji, we wanted to see how people would react to seeing a peach emoji booty in public. This was filmed in Oxford Street, London

Apple is releasing a bunch of new emoji, many of them include women doing more things than getting their hair done or wearing a tiara. This should be good news to the lady denizens of the internet who have been asking for these emojis for... years, maybe?

But hey, if for some reason you're upset at all the new emojis for women, never fear. The dancing bunny gals got a gender parity emoji added as well:

The real topic of controversy is actually centered around Apple's decision to totally remove guns from the line up. They've opted to replace it instead with an adorable, green squirt gun. Some people hate this decision, a lot:

Others are a little more accepting or just don't care.

Okay, they mainly just don't care. Who's out there texting people pictures of guns anyway?

Yes, these are real and yes, that is a giant floating eggplant that you can ride on. 



Sure, you'd be stupid to bring your phone into the pool with you but that doesn't mean you have to go without expressing yourself exclusively through pictures. Just take these giant emoji pool toys with you. 



Now you can spend your entire weekend floating on a giant poop. What a time to be alive.

Turns out making your own marshamallows is pretty easy. According to Nomageddon, all you gotta do is this:

We need a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer with the whisk attachment. We also need powdered gelatin, vanilla extract, candy thermometer, and a piping bag fitted with a 1/2 inch (Ateco #12) tip. Step 1 is the activate the gelatin. Pour a 1/3 of a cup of water into the mixing bowl and then pour the contents of 1 gelatin packet on top. Let it sit for 10 minutes. While the gelatin is…um…gelling, add 1 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of water to a small sauce pan. Clip your candy thermometer to the side and bring to a gentle boil over medium heat. The mixture is ready when it reads about 235ºF (~113ºC). This should take about 10 minutes so the timing is perfect. Pour the mixture into the stand mixer bowl and give it a gentle stir with a spoon to break up any leftover gelatin clumps. Add the vanilla extract and turn on the mixer at medium-high speed, and whisk until super fluffy (9 minutes).

Once you've got your turd mixture, scoop it into a piping bag and squeeze it out into little turd shapes: "you don’t have to squeeze too hard, but you do need to concentrate to get a beautiful BM. However, if your Texas Turds are not holding their shape and looking more like runny Mississippi Mud, wait a minute and let the marshmallow cool a bit." Once you've got your mallows looking poo-like, cover them in brown decorating sugar.



You can either leave them in their natural state, or add little bits of marshmallow for an emoji face.

Sony will try to make an emoji movie

Were you getting bored of all these movies based on 1980s board games and thinking 'I wish they'd make a film out of something less cinematic"? Well someone has heard your dumb prayer.

Deadline is reporting that an emoji movie is already moving forward and has a writer and director.

In a deal near seven figures, Sony Pictures Animation won a three-studio auction for an animated movie pitch centering on the Emoji, those lovable round headed figures that are as much a staple of social media correspondence as adverbs and adjectives. The project will be co-written by Eric Siegel and Anthony Leondis, with the latter directing the feature.



This move came as a result of a three studio (yes, three studio) bidding war.

Apparently, Leondis shopped the project around because he had finally cracked the code on what would make the most compelling movie out of slightly more fully-formed emoticons.

They just have to be reactions to things right? Or will it animate those faces or that guy with his head down:

Wired had a pretty good explanation for why you don't make an emoji movie:
