“I have made an emoji of a man who is completely fed up with his life so people can send it to their family or their friends or their wife when they want to let them know that they are feeling fed up and I met a man in the woods the other day who had just found out that his wife was having a affair with his son’s dad and he was trying to explain to me how he was feeling with emojis but he couldn’t and it just looked like he was trying to tell me that there was a burning boat nearby so I think that my emoji will help him explain to people how he is feeling more and then he will be a lot happier about his miserable life.”
