I'm about to make a bit of a bold statement, but hear me out: Emojis are the hieroglyphics of our generation. Seriously, they're their own form of communication! Years from now, future humans probably won't understand the fascination with the sassy girl emoji or that little smiling poop. But regardless, people take these cartoon symbols very seriously. (Just ask those who fought relentlessly for the Taco Emoji.) Another fan of emojis, apparently? None other than one very famous reality star. On Saturday night, Kim Kardashian shared a series of selfies with her nephew Mason Disick that at first glance, appear like they're just making funny faces. But if you read the captions, it's clear the relatives were trying to replicate all of the little smiley face emojis — ranging from happy to serious to silly.
Although Mason's parents are reportedly going through a rough patch (news of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick's split broke last week), it's great to see the 5-year-old having fun with his Auntie Kimmy. It's a nice way to take his mind off things, and as soon as I saw Kim's Instagram, it got me thinking. Not only is Kim Kardashian the Queen of the Selfie (a title she earned when she published an entire book of self-photographs), but she's also an emoji queen — worthy of a little cartoon crown. Don't believe me? Here's a look back at all the times that Kim Kardashian looked like a real-life emoji, starting with her recent Mason photo shoot.
1. Unhappy Face Emoji
What's the technical name for this emoji? Honestly, I don't know. But it looks like this:
2. Tongue-Out Emoji
As any emoji expert knows, there are multiple emojis that stick their tongues out. The above image is supposed to be the happy one.
3. Kissing Emoji
This Kimye smooch resembles a certain romantic emoji...
4. Jungle Cat Emoji
OK, so I don't know if she was going for a tiger or a leopard, but according to the caption, she resembles this emoji.
5. Side-Eye Emoji
We all know *that* look.
6. Tongue-Out, Winking Emoji
The resemblance is uncanny.
7. Bride Emoji
Mrs. Kardashian-West looks just like the wedding veil emoji.
8. Mouse Emoji
Not just any mouse... Minnie Mouse.
9. Twinning Emoji
They're standing the wrong way and missing the bunny ears, but you get the idea.
10. Red Dress Emoji
That infamous red dress, dancing emoji.
11. Kissy Face Emoji
Kim is a big fan of this pose.
12. American Flag Emoji
13. Couple Emoji
If only the emojis were as well-dressed.
So there you have it — Kim Kardashian is a real-life emoji! My apologies if now any time you look at a Kim K. selfie, you can't un-see the resemblance.
