Hey, horse racing is just straight up just bad, and shouldnt be done anymore right?

I remember people who know more than I do saying something to that effect, but I wanted to check as I tally my emoji and notice that Horse Racing is an emoji and if this is the case, then it's just getting add to the list of Unicode Emoji I'm Not Doing ^^'

And then subsequently have to make a briefcase because it's actually a dependency for emoji ligatures and font building will break otherwise.

TFW you accidentally encode 'Musical Score' (U+1F3BC) as 'Briefcase' (U+1F4BC)

Here's another internally screaming moment - when Apple mis-labelled their chipmunk emoji as 'squirrel'

So my design intentions for animal emoji is to just draw heads/faces for the most part. But the 9 overlapping 'face' emoji fuck that up a bit. It also gets really confusing because different vendors choose to do faces and full-body renderings for different animals.

- Frequent instances of weirdly genericised entities ('Bird', 'Fish', 'Tropical Fish')
- Animals can be depicted however you like, until you can't. There are 18 specific 'face' animal emoji, 9 of which have other more generic codepoints in the standard.

I think other than gender and the general clusterfuck with human representation, animals is probably the worst part of Unicode Standard emoji.

love 2 look through and disentangle Unicode's emoji standard

Microsoft at least tried to do something unique with it in an earlier version of their emoji whereby they made it into a funicular train instead of just 'it's a normal train... but in the mountains!' :throunking:
