Finally, an Emoji for me!
As a Dark Iron Dwarf, I am happy to see a middle finger that represents me.
It looks more like a penis and balls to me. Kinda a dick move on Microsoft's part.

A skeleton middle finger would've sealed the deal for me

I was planning on waiting to upgrade, but this seems to be the must have feature that Microsoft needed for Windows 10. If only the Xbone had a middle finger emoji.
Windows has emojis? Where are they even used?

[QUOTE=Swiket;47658943]All those emojis have skeletons in them.[/QUOTE] But I can't see them, and that's what hurts the most.

I swear it's like we're going backwards emoji design wise, they're becoming worse and less expressive. We can only hope a pack of 300 emoticons bundled with wacky cursors comes to save us soon.

A middle finger is a thousand times more expressive than the emoji depicting the head of a duckling I hope android and ios implement this one too so i can finally flip my friends off
Emojis don't need a middle finger, they're a peaceful race. 😌

[QUOTE=ccg;47658816]It looks more like a penis and balls to me.[/QUOTE] Isn't that what the middle finger gesture is supposed to represent anyway?
