I recently stumbled across @libraryofemoji, which is tweeting randomly generated suggestions for future Unicode characters. These include:

  • ANNOYING FACE
  • RESPECT HOSPITAL
  • MARCH
  • PHANTASMAGORICAL SYMBOL FOR THREE DISAPPEARANCES
  • RIGHT ECHIDNA
  • OBVIOUSLY ANGULAR PETRIFICATION BENEATH CHARLOTTETOWN
  • THREE ANDROIDS
  • FOUL SYMBOL FOR NIGHTSTICK

…and more!
