There was a point in time when we thought that emoji were the greatest things ever (yesterday). That all changed when we learned that someone was smart enough to turn them into the best file format known to man. Artist Taylor Holland began layering the beloved mobile graphics on each to create awesome animated GIFs that are funny, useful, and often form what The Creator's Project refers to as "micro-narratives."

From dancing ladies to indecisive hand gestures, Holland's site has plenty of ammo for your Tumblr and GChat windows. The day these make it onto mobile devices is the day that in-person conversations will be made pointless.
