Google may have axed its atrocious yellow blobs, but there’s still plenty to laugh at. A new Android emojigate is rocking the Web: a burger emoji. Specifically, a cheeseburger emoji. Google designers actually placed the cheese slice beneath the patty, when everyone knows it’s supposed to sit atop the patty. The placement of the lettuce and tomato slices is debatable, but the cheese ALWAYS covers the meat! Google designers also need a refresher course on beer, to observe how the refreshing drink works: there is no air gap between the liquid and the foam. Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, has at least committed to fixing the burger issue.

Hmmmm, Google, this is not how beer works.
