Yeah, we tried it. - 

You can now search the online review site Yelp using emojis -- those little cartoon-ish characters you can create with a certain set of keystrokes.  


So...you search on a pair of scissors, you get listings for hair salons. A high heel gets you shoe stores. You get the picture(s).


I don't even want to search on a smiley face or a wink. Pretty sure the Internet has taken things one step too far.


We, of course, had to try it:


Some results were just... the usual for Yelp.


Rocket search emoji



Others were pretty literal.


Bathtub emoji



But seriously: Could this be a useful search tool?
