  Using the word  Emoji  in Engilsh is a bit stupid.
      Just say, Facesigns, Emoticons, or=20
            Emopics, Pictomos, Pictemos,  or something....

But 100 times stupider is using=20
                Notan  in Engilsh=20

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notan

  >>>  N=C5=8Dtan (=E6=BF=83=E6=B7=A1) is a Japanese design concept invol=
ving the play and placement of light and dark elements as they are placed n=
ext to the other in the composition of art and imagery. <<<

Strunk>  Why say =E2=80=9Cutilize=E2=80=9D when there is the simple,=20
              unpretentious word [use] ?
