Lobster joins crab and shrimps in the food category. It is a lavish seafood beside a lucrative commodity in coastal areas. Originally black/blue, lobster’s color turns orange on cooking.
The emoji 🦞 is a digital nod to seafood enthusiasts. Often seen as a culinary delight, the emoji aptly symbolizes lobster dishes that are usually served with butter or creamy sauces. Yum!
However, it's not all about food. Maine, anyone? Yes, the state with a close relationship to lobsters adopts this emoji as a virtual ambassador. So if you're tweeting about your trip to Maine, don't forget to throw in a 🦞 or two. Headed to Massachusetts or Maryland? Use this emoji to flaunt your savvy knowledge of local cuisine.
Shift gears and you'll find this crustacean has a surprising link with the transgender community. The dual characteristics of the lobster—male and female traits in one—make it an unexpected yet poignant symbol for transgender representation.
This emoji didn't arrive without controversy. Initial designs received flak for anatomical inaccuracy, but corrective steps were taken. So rest assured that the lobster emoji now has the correct number of appendages.
Remember the hit TV show Friends? The episode where Phoebe declares that lobsters mate for life and Ross is Rachel's lobster? Yep, if you're trying to tell someone they're your forever, 🦞 is your go-to emoji.
