Apple has announced their top 10 emojis and they include red heart, loudly crying face, heart eyes face, kissing face, rolling eyes face, skull, smiling face with smiling eyes, weary face, and thinking face. But the most used emoji by a landslide is the tears of joy emoji, which is a face laughing with tears coming out of their eyes because they are so overwhelmed by joy.
This list shows that we’re all liars. How many times in real life have you laughed so hard that actual tears of joy pour down your face this year? Once? Twice? A half of a dozen times at most? How many times have you received a text or saw something online and reacted by posting the tears of joy emoji this year? 500? 5,000? 50,000? Fuck, you probably reacted to a single “Cracking Open a Cold One With the Boys” meme with a string of 11 crying laughing emojis. I bet you barely crack a smirk IRL, but you react by claiming that you’re laughing so hard that your body is so overcome with joy that your tear ducts are forced to release liquid otherwise you’ll burst with euphoria. If you were physically laughing with tears as much as you use tears of joy emojis your family would advocate that you undergo a psychological evaluation.
You do realize that very few moments are deserving of a tears of joy emoji? There are other emojis you can use for amusement such as:
😀 Grinning Face
😁 Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes
🤣 Rolling on the Floor Laughing
😃 Smiling Face With Open Mouth
😄 Smiling Face With Open Mouth & Smiling Eyes
😆 Smiling Face With Open Mouth & Closed Eyes
😉 Winking Face
😊 Smiling Face With Smiling Eyes
😎 Smiling Face With Sunglasses
😍 Smiling Face With Heart-Eyes
🙂 Slightly Smiling Face
So stop lying to your friends and loved ones by reacting to EVERYTHING with the face with tears of joy emoji, you’ve cheapened the hysterical laughing symbol to the point that it has zero value. We’re all phony frauds and we’ve killed the tears of joy emoji.
