People are giggling after an entomologist took the various ant emoji from iPhone, Samsung, etc... and reviewed them in a completely unscientific manner.
Posted on tumblr by curlicuecal, it quickly spread to other social media.
The first ant is Apple's, and the scientist had nothing but good things to say, giving it 11/10!
But not all ant emojis were created equal, as we soon found out.
Google and WhatsApp fare OK with 7 and 6 out of 10.
"This ant may not know quite where she is going, but she knows how she is getting there."
Words to live by.
But Samsung and Microsoft got only 2 and 3.
But things recovered with LG getting 7/10.
HTC garnered 8/10 for their pared down model.
Messenger got high marks—9/10—for their sturdy looking ant who "looks like she would help you move."
And Facebook came in second only to Apple with 10 out of 10 for their "elegant ant."
"This ant inspires me. I want to be like her."
Sadly, from there it just went downhill.
Emojidex garnered a sympathetic 3/10 for their broken legged ant.
"I am rooting for her."
EmojiOne produced a "not an ant" reminiscent of a Hork-Bajir* earning them a 1/10.
* shout out to the Animorphs fans!
Twitter got accused of not even trying with their 0/10 earning black splotch.
And Mozilla was so rage inducing they went into negative numbers for their termite impersonating an ant.
Each ant has a different style, a different life or a different story. But they're all female.
When asked why, curlicuecal explained:
Hey, delanie! 🕷🌈
People were thrilled with the antmoji interpretations.
