TACO TACO TACO TACO. Imagine that in emoji. You can do that now. Use responsibly. 

Original story, 8/22: With emojis becoming almost more commonplace than actual words, it only seems right that new icons be added to the current collection. While 😻,  🙌 , and 🙊  are great, a whole new world of characters awaits us—one that includes an avocado and an owl. 

Unicode Consortium, the company responsible for emoji standardization, is now looking at 38 new candidates to be approved for a "mid-2016" release. And. We. Can't. Wait. 

Below, a look at some of your soon-to-be favorites—as imagined by Emojipedia
