This is News?

Did you catch the big story on the news last night?  The reporter was so excited that one might have thought that she was announcing that a cure for cancer had been found.  No.  She said that a whole flock of new emojis have been released which will thrill those who have cast aside the English language to use dumb, cartoony, infantile, mindless graphic images instead of real words.  What is this world coming to?  This is supposed to be “news”?

Did you know that the English language has more words than another language in the world?  Now we can be restricted to the 1,851 emojis and we don't have to bother with the subtleties of language.  Cast aside such descriptive things as adjectives, verbs, nouns pronouns and modifiers, just visual grunts if you will. Instead of describing the subtleties of that first cup of coffee in the morning we can just say instead ☕️❤️.
