Worry not, smiley users. Next month, more than 250 new emoji will be included with the release of Unicode 7.0. Your computer and mobile device will have to support the new standard for you to use these smileys, but that's not too tall an order.

With your updated emoji army in hand, you'll be all like, "Yaaaasssss, shrimp":
