In case you missed it, 158 new emojis were unveiled on Tuesday with the newest iOS 12.1 update.
“With the release of iOS 12.1, iPhone and iPad users have access to six new smileys, redheads, people with curly hair, a softball, skateboard, mango, bagel, and kangaroo emoji for the first time,” Emojipedia announced on its blog.
Single human legs of different skin shades, a miniature hippo (aka a House Hippo — that’s a nod to you, Canada), a sponge, and a mooncake are also among the new batch.
Every emoji seemed fairly self-explanatory in its application. Every emoji but one, that is.
Over the last few days, people on social media have been trying to figure out together what one of the new facial expressions is trying to express.
It’s the one dubbed the “Face With Uneven Eyes and Wavy Mouth” emoji, that they’re also calling the “Woozy Face.”
One eye is closed, an eyebrow is drooping, and the mouth is doing all kinds of inexplicable things.
“Can someone explain this emoji to me,” one person tweeted.
“What is this emoji?!?!” someone else asked, using the emoji in a tweet.
“APPLE WHAT IS THIS NEW EMOJI, WHAT EMOTION IS THIS FACE CONVEYING,” a frustrated customer tweeted.
According to Emojipedia, it’s a “face which may be showing signs of being tired and emotional, i.e. drunk,” they explained.
However, people had other (i.e., better) ideas for its application.
