These Emojis Nail Those Feelings You Can't Put Into Words

If a picture is worth a thousand words, an emoji is worth five thousand. That's because emojis are meant to replace language! But sometimes, a smile or a smirk just won't cut it. That's where illustrator Chris Gerringer comes in.

Gerringer, whose work can be found on his Tumblr Paper Beats Scissors, created the emojis that can help you express your true feelings -- feelings like "remembering the work you put off all week" and "holding in a fart."

"I came up with idea just thinking about what it would look like if they had the sort of emojis I would need on a regular basis -- something that would maybe reflect more of the ridiculous/mundane things I spend a lot of time doing," Gerringer told The Huffington Post in an email.

Now if only Apple would give these emojis the green light, we'd finally be able to express ourselves fully.
