Did You Know? Emojis will soon be coming to a courtroom near you.

Excerpt from The Lawyer’s Weekly: An eggplant is an eggplant—unless it’s an emoji. The plain, pear-shaped American version of the vegetable sat in obscurity until its digital reinvention into a bright purple Japanese eggplant emoji elevated its status for reasons that have nothing to do with produce. If someone sends an eggplant emoji to someone who is not their spouse and says “I’ve got some free time”, do they mean, “I’ve got some free time and I’m going to the grocery store?” Emojis are a way of saying something without actually saying something.

But be careful what you “say”, because it could be used against you in a court of law.
