Pile of Poo

A swirl of brown poop, shaped like soft-serve ice cream with large, excited eyes and frequently a big, friendly smile.

Widely agreed to have been inspired by the various poop-shaped characters within the Dr. Slump manga series by Akira Toriyama.

May be used to represent feces and other bathroom topics as well as stand in for their many related slang terms. It also enjoys a wide range of idiosyncratic applications, such as conveying a sense of whimsy or silliness, given its fun, happy expression.

Microsoft and Google previously depicted a literal pile of feces, Google’s design featuring stink lines and flies hovering above it.

Available as an Apple Animoji.

Pile of Poo was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
