Guess what?!

It is National Emoji Day! 

That’s right! Now you, too, have an excuse to use emojis all day and all night long.

Go have fun and then come back for Gin and Topics.

5. Hula Hooping Hailey. This just makes me laugh! She’s trying sooooo hard!

4. Doggy Daycare. Oh, Amy Schumer. You never disappoint. This is “filmed” at drop-off doggy daycare. Best quote: “I didn’t get my dog vaccinated because Jenny McCarthy said it would cause pawtism.”

3. Funny Animal Dubbing. These make me laugh! There is an entire series and they are hilarious. Talking animals = me in fits of giggles. Now if I could get a chimpanzee to walk down the street, holding my hand, while we both ate ice cream cones, my life would be complete.

2. Dog Front Flip. Do it again! Do it again! Do it again!

1. Faceketball with Lebron James. I will preface this by saying I am not a Lebron James fan (sorry, Cleveland friends!). But this is H-I-larious! I love the concept, I love how James sat down so Jimmy could reach him (and Jimmy is not a short man). I love how he’s not as good at this as he is at real basketball. And I loved the dunk contest. Very, very funny!

Have a great weekend!
