That is, Apple and Microsoft both put the cheese above the burger patty, as is customary in many places.

Adults are afraid of these new emojis

Adults are afraid of these new emojis

"I sense this is bad," said Tucker Carlson, "I can't articulate why." Carlson and Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs fame discussed the release of a new batch of emojis set to release soon. The devastating effect of new pictures-as-text seemed to call forth some base emotion in Rowe, something he said he couldn't quite summon a lot of "righteous indignation" over, but that he found entirely troubling nonetheless.
