To most people in the West, the meaning and appearance of this sleeping face emoji is utterly bizarre and inexplicable. After all, it appears to have a giant drop of water coming from the sleeping emoji’s nose: not something you’d instant associate with sleep! However, there is a very simple explanation for this. In anime and manga, sleeping characters are often shown just like this, until the so called “snot bubbles” have become as synonymous with sleep as “Zzz” is to many westerners. Even still, outside of East Asia, this emoji is much more likely to be used to convey sadness or grief, the “snot bubble” being taken for a single tear.
