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.

Ouch!

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.

-10/10.

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.





These reviews are both hysterical but also pure and wholesome.




Have you ever found yourself so interested in ants before this little piece of wholesomeness?




Happy Friday, everyone. May you all be the Apple ant today.

Love ants or know someone who does? We don't know how this 47 inch ant plush would rate (also comes in 18", 28" & 59" lengths), but you can get yours here.

Disciplining children in a way that will make them reflect on their behavior without taking it too far is definitely a difficult line to walk. Some parents have apparently had to get rather creative to get the point across.

It's next to impossible to get through life without regrets. Whether it was a missed opportunity to ask someone out or missing a chance to say goodbye to a loved one before they walked on, missed opportunities are part of life.

We sometimes regret decisions and life choices too, but the missed opportunities always seem to hit the hardest when we look back on them.

Accusations of sexual harassment are serious things, and not tools for manipulating a game, but two Survivor contestants ignored that to make the game go their way.

Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Byrd voiced concerns over touching by another contestant, Dan Spilo, which now appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely made up to manipulate other players.

We all need a pick-me-up now and then. The news can be depressing and so many of us are used to hearing nothing but messages of gloom and doom from the moment we step outside.

Parents are everything, well good parents, parents who are destined to be parents. Some people really shouldn't be parents. That's for another time to discuss. When we are all born our parental units have such high hopes and plans.... and more often then not, the spawn will choose the adverse path. When you're children choose the adverse path, it has to be harrowing, but, a true parent finds a way, even with disappointment. But that doesn't mean you can't chat about it.

So flying can be a handful and a half. We can't travel with anything but our knickers anymore, well that is what it feels like. Sometimes we forget what we've packed, especially if we've packed in a hurry. It feels like the simplest of necessities is now a HUGE no-no. So once and awhile we're flagged with a thing or two that could raise a few eyebrows. (For no good reason!)
