You can now search Yelp for emojis

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?
 
 
Korean emoji search
