Over the years Apple has introduced hundreds of emojis to help make our texts way more interesting and to help us quickly express a phrase or emotion. However, one man has just discovered the true meaning behind one emoji and let's just say we're all shocked.
One way to find out what an emoji actually means when using an iPhone is to type a word or phrase using your qwerty keyboard and an emoji relating to that phrase will pop-up.
TikToker Louis Levanti came across a tweet from Zach Silberberg where he discovered that typing "please sir" is a shortcut to make the emoji appear as a replacement. Zach tweeted: "Finding out that the keyboard shortcut for this emoji is 'please sir' ruined my day."
Zach's tweet went viral and was 'liked' more than 222k times and received 24.5k retweets - clearly, people were also in shock about the emoji's true meaning. Zach followed-up his first tweet with a screen-recorded video of him typing "please sir" to prove his discovery.
In Louis' hilarious video response on TikTok, he said: "I did not need to wake up to this. I did not need to wake up to this tweet telling me that that [please sir] is what you type to get that emoji. It f*cking can't be.
"Who the f*ck at Apple is responsible for this? I did not need to wake up to this."
People took to the comments section and the reactions are hysterical. One woman said: "Tried it with Ma'am and it didn't work.. smells toxic."
Another commenter quoted Oliver Twist, writing: "PLEASE SIR CAN I HAVE SOME MOREEE."
While a third quipped: "Never been happier to have an android. Doesn't work for me lol."
And a fourth said: "How did they figure that out."
Some users claimed the emoji also appears when you type in similar phrases such as "pretty please", "pweeze" and "no please".
We'll never look at that emoji the same way again.
