It was a Playboy bunny emoji all along! 👯

According to renowned emoji scholarship institute Emoji.org, the dancing twins have always been, and are now quite obviously, dancing Playboy bunnies.

Color me surprised.

Are those Little Debbie Swiss Rolls for bunny ears in the iOS 8.2 picture?

I see Albinos have been left out yet again. Apple knows no end to racism.

And who are the yellow people with big eyes?

I never heard of emoji before. I have heard of emoticon, and these icons in the thread look like emoticons to me. What's the difference? A quick google search seems like emoji are Japanese? Or are emoji just an Apple brand thing?

The bunnies or the ones with the horns and the dead eyes?

No. It's just a smartphone thing then? Why are they called emoji on a phone but emoticon anywhere else? I don't get it I guess.

The wiki article is enlightening.

Huh. And here I thought emoji was just a newer abbreviated name for emoticons.

I've always considered the difference to be that emoticons are the things you can make with a standard typewriter, and emoji are little cartoons.

There are same-sex emoji now so the outrage should reach you soon. Be patient.

Where exactly are those thumbs going? I need to know before I decide whether to be angry about this.

I don't know if I would agree that the new pose is more "suggestive'. The new one indicates the raised leg is pushed back like a lunge whereas the old one just looks like they spreading their legs.

Why Playboy? Hasn't anime been full of sexy girls with animal ears all along?
