The Vatican Uses Emoticons, Too

As of this moment, The Vatican hasn’t announced exactly who the new Pope is, but we thought we’d take the time to share this tweet and to apologize for our failure to create the world’s next Vine sensation, “6 seconds of white smoke”:

These aren’t quite traditional emoticons (consider the irony of that phrase for a minute), but the “crowds rejoicing” image is pretty cool. At this point, we’re just glad the Vatican didn’t encourage the young people at St. Peter’s Square to break into the Harlem Shake or unfurl a banner reading “Keep Calm and Wait for the New Pope to Emerge.”
