We're not going to lie, waking up and learning it's "World Emoji Day" was followed by a large sigh from this jaded writer.

They're so darn ubiquitous now that I really don't see why we need an entire day celebrating the online ideograms.

But I'm more than happy to give credit where credit's due when someone uses them well, as Explore Minnesota did by setting its followers this quiz about Minnesota places, using emojis as clues.
