Know Your Meme

Originally called “Face With Uneven Eyes and Wavy Mouth” in Unicode, this emoji entered the scene in 2018.

The woozy face emoji is our friend the yellow smiley emoji after getting hammered. The smile is replaced by a wavy, partially open mouth. One of its eyes are squished as if it’s half-winking or squinting. The emoji looks slightly different from platform to platform, but it always looks pretty wasted.

Who uses 🥴 Woozy Face emoji?

When it first came out, the woozy face emoji baffled the internet and bewildered users crowdsourced ideas for what it meant.

True to form, Twitter offered some super gross ideas. People speculated it’s the face you make when you are trying to push out a fart, when you burp and blow it out the side of your face, or when you have–or are about to have–diarrhea.

A host of sexual meanings were floated, including  the face you make when you come or when something is both pleasurable and a little uncomfortable.

Because of the emoji looks as though it’s making a “stupid face,” it’s also been used to convey self depreciation–like when you forget to plan for the obvious things…

Megan Farokhmanesh of The Verge says it’s this emoji is a stand in for  “the drunk weirdo at the bar.” She writes, “At 2AM, this is the emoji that will slide up next to you, try to make conversation, and promptly spill a beer in your hair.”

And then Miles Klee of Mel Magazine observed,”Woozy Face is me. It’s how I’ve appeared in roughly 80 percent (conservative estimate) of posed photos taken over the last decade.”
