It’s officially named the reversed hand with middle finger extending, according to the Emojipedia, and it’s coming to your mobile phone. Unicode, the standard for consistent text presentation across platforms, announced an update today that introduces 250 new emojis, inspired by Wingdings and Webdings. It’s not a guaranteed lock they’ll end up on your phone though — it’s up to Unicode’s member platforms, which include iOS and Android, to add the update. Emojipedia is keeping a list of the icons coming in the update, so other than giving your friends the middle finger, you can send a #tbt of a black hard shell floppy disk, a man in a business suit levitating or even the derelict house building. Now where’s our taco emoji?

      1. Of course! I would be wary of that.
