It was announced early this year that thespian actor of all things Shakespearean and Starfleet Federation, Sir Patrick Stewart, is the voice of the poo emoji in ‘The Emoji Movie’. I know…we never thought we’d see the day either!

It is yet to be seen how that plays out…bad play on words there. But all joking aside, this got us thinking. Are there some emojis we just hate and other’s we can’t live without? So here is our Top 5 awesome and Top 5 crap emojis…(pun intended 🙂 )


1. Face With Look Of Triumph Emoji

Triumph Emoji

Really? Looks more like an emoji expressing frustration or perhaps disgust or the sender is in a huff with you. However, is this what a look of triump looks like? Nah…we didn’t think so either.

2. Woman In Bunny Ears Emoji

Bunny Ladies Emoji

Some people interpret this as BFF’s that party together and have fun. A display of friendship perhaps. Ummm not quite, it’s more Hugh Hefneresque playboy bunny vibe than lets be friends forever emoji. A touch on the creepy side.

3. Someone in a Bathtub Emoji

Bathtub Emoji

This one is just plain awkward. When would you use this. Perhaps when you slip and fall from using conditioner and can’t move from the agony but you can message and give your followers an update. Mmmm…we might have talked ourselves out of this being one of the worst…it might even be lifesaving.

4. Toilet Emoji

Toilet Emoji

We seemed to have stuck with the bathroom theme and at number 4 is the toilet emoji. Again disturbing and useless, but completely practical and useful in real life. We can’t think of a decent conversation where you would use this emoji apart from Cher describing President Trump!

5. Poo Emoji

Poo Emoji

At number 5 we have the humble poo emoji. I guess it should have been number 1 (we need to stop with the puns)! We debated if this should actually be on this list of on the Top 5 Best Emoji list because people either love or hate this emoji. People wear this emoji on t-shirts and in public. We voted in the office and unfortunately it landed on the bottom of the worst list.


1. Shocked Emoji

Shocked Emoji

We think this emoji is the one of the best as it is as clear as day what it means. Some use this for surprised, astonished or just that awkward moment that needs that extra expression where words just won’t do.

2. See No Evil, Hear No Evil & Speak No Evil Emojis

No See Hear Speak Emoji

This trio got joint 3rd place in our best emoji list. They are super cute and instantly recognisable. Just about everyone using emojis have heard the proverb “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”. They are also useful in everyday conversations.

3. Thumbs Up Emoji

Like Emoji

We love this simple straightforward emoji and we think it’s the best finger on the hand to be pointing up. It gives the right message with a positive vibe, ‘well done’, ‘great job’. It also should be noted that back in 2015 we started to notice a more diverse range of these emoji’s as illustrated below.

4. Heart Emoji (all variations)

Hearts Emoji

You can’t help but love the heart emoji. But we especially dig the black heart emoji that Apple introduced that brings to mind the lyrics from Simon & Garfunkel ‘Hello darkness my old friend’. It could be broken hearts, sparkling hearts or a blackened heart…we think they’re spot on and instantly relatable.

5. Pizza Emoji and Beer Emoji

Pizza & Beer Emoji

In joint last place we had to put these two as they go so well together, plus you can’t really have one without the other. Universally recognisable, ‘lets meet for drinks and pizza’ or ‘I’m hungry…beer and pizza?’. A great emoji that encourages us to be more social.
