20 Times Old People Didn’t Realize What The 😂 Emoji Really Means

Published 4 years ago

Everyone knows that old people and technology are a bad combo. And while most of the time it’s harmless and even kind of funny, there are times when things get a little… inappropriate. Especially when it comes to one specific emoji.

Of course, I’m talking about this one “😂”, officially known as the “Face with Tears of Joy” emoji. It’s pretty self-explanatory – you use it when something makes you laugh hysterically. Well, self-explanatory for us at least – but not for old people. Apparently, some of them think this emoji actually stands for tears of sadness and like to use it at the most unfortunate times – and I almost feel guilty for laughing.

Check out all the times old poeple used the “Face with Tears of Joy” emoji at the most inappropriate times in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
