“If you say you’re going to diversify, why not add a few red-haired emoji in the mix?” asks Emma Kelly, the site’s proprietor. “Natural redheads may be rare at less than two percent of the world’s population, but that is 138,000,000 iPhones waiting to happen.”
Kelly isn’t the only advocate who says hair is the next frontier of emoji diversification. Writing at the Guardian, Rhik Samadder noted that there are no emojis for beards or afros. Survey the list of humanoid emojis, and the hair is mostly black, brown, and straight.
No beards?! Okay, I retract my earlier sarcasm. This is serious.

That "purple thing", as you so offensively call him, is none other than Tony Harrison.

Funny. I should have a look at that show.

It is delightfully surreal. I greatly prefer the second and third seasons, but the first one is still pretty good once it gets rolling.
