It seems that with each new emoji update comes another pile of dirt on the written word's grave. RIP, or, more befittingly, skull emoji coffin emoji. 

The latest Emojipedia update reveals a full list of 72 new emojis coming in iOS 10.2, one of which takes the labor out of typing out that character-riddled shrugging emoticon. The beloved ambivalent shruggie will soon sit pretty in your emoji keyboard. 

Emojipedia described the shrugging emoji —  also known as ¯\_(?)_/¯ — as "a person shrugging their shoulders to indicate a lack of knowledge about a particular topic, or a lack of care about the result of a situation." 

Can't wait to indicate my cool lack of interest in one swift click. 

Among the other 72 new emojis expected to roll out in update operating systems are a man in tuxedo, a pregnant woman, a gorilla (dicks out), an eagle (god bless America) and a face palm (a fitting response to the indifferent shruggie). You can see the full list here
