🙈5 Emoji Meanings That Don’t Mean What You Think

1. Octopus 🐙🐙🐙

Octopi are wet, sticky, and sometimes poisonous, but their emoji has come to represent a hug. Perhaps because the emoji is just so darn cute, and with eight arms they couldn’t be too bad at hugging, right?

2. Goat 🐐🐐🐐

This emoji typically doesn’t mean the animal it is connected to, which isn’t so bad given how rarely the average person needs to emote a goat to another person. GOAT often stands for Greatest of All Time, and can be used as a positive compliment.

3. The Standard Smiley 🙂🙂🙂

Exactly which smile is used can seriously impact what emotion is being expressed. In some places, the Standard smiley face is almost exclusively used sarcastically, to show that you hate something, but will put up with it anyways.

For example, “The boss wants me to stay late 🙂”.

To express a genuine smile, you need to use another smile, such as one with an open mouth 😀.

4. Cup of Tea 🍵🍵🍵

A cup of tea can have a few different meanings. The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore was known for throwing weak tea at guests who were less than honest, so the emoji can convey dishonesty. It also could reference the meme of Kermit the Frog drinking tea and saying it isn’t his business. Finally, it could also mean just a cup of tea, and want to meet at a tea house or coffee shop.

5. See No Evil Monkey 🙈🙈🙈
