Or should it be spelled E-Moji?

Nick Shipley over at Funds for Learning is a genius.  Why?  Well, not only has he noted the unbelievable Form 470 2,000-word-lockout, but he has proposed a solution that is both ingenious and hilarious: emojis.

You should visit his blog post to see his proposed emojis.  Of course, I am inspired to add my own:
