250 New Emojis to Be Added in July

At last, we’re finally getting the middle finger emoji that we’ve all been waiting for. You know, for those moments when your best friend pokes fun at your Orange Is the New Black obsession. Sorry not sorry!

On June 16, Unicode, a character-encoding system that standardizes global texts, announced that 250 new emojis will be added in July 2014 as a part of the Unicode 7.0 Standard Update. The emojipedia has a full list of the new additions including a spider, a floppy disk, a middle finger, and a chipmunk.

Unfortunately, though, the keyboard’s ethnicity problem has yet to be fixed, so no color-filled emojis have been added to the bunch.

Photos of the new emojis will be released as soon as they are available. Until then, we’ll just have to imagine what that chipmunk will look like.

Which emoji are you most excited for — and which do you think should be added to the list? Share your thoughts in the coments!
