There are 230 new emojis coming out this year, the Unicode Consortium announced Tuesday.

That means we'll soon be getting a whole bunch of useful additions, including waffles, a sloth, and an axe.

They're also getting more diverse, with new emojis for mixed-race couples and a ton depicting various disabilities.

When asked about the tidal wave of people dubbing it the universal symbol of tiny dicks, Emojipedia founder Jeremy Burge acknowledged "it sure does seem that way."

"In context, having an emoji ... to refer to a small amount of something seems like it might be helpful," he told BuzzFeed News. "But I can definitely see how the gesture out of context does seem to imply a man's small package."
