Oh Oxford….

Oxford just announced its 2015 word of the year. Actually, it’s not a word. For the first time ever, a pictograph has been selected. Does anyone else feel we’ve just stepped back a few thousand years???

The winning title goes to an emoji by the name of “Tears of Joy.”

According to Oxford, this emoji was selected as the “‘word’ that best reflected the ethos, mood, and preoccupations of 2015.”

And I thought the new dictionary words were bad!  This is a tragic new low…
