Emoji fans of the world it's time to buckle up and forget everything you thought you knew about your emoticon keyboard, 'cos there's about to be 72 NEW ONES coming your direction and oooOooOoh they look good.

The new batch includes a cowboy, drooling face, rolling on the floor with laughteer face, FINALLY a sick emoji, a selfie (obviously), a scary clown and a cucumber (PEEN) amongst so many others. We're sold.
