Google’s top priority today? Fixing the cheeseburger emoji

While the exact contents of a cheeseburger can be debated, the positioning of its defining feature cannot; cheese goes on top of burger patty.

With that established, Google’s cheeseburger emoji is all kinds of wrong.

As Twitter user Thomas Baekdal points out, Google’s emoji places the cheese beneath the meat, while Apple (correctly) plonks the cheese on top of the burger.

It turns out Google is the only tech manufacturer with strange construction habits.

Microsoft, Samsung, HTC, LG, WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter managed to get it right.

Thankfully, at the very highest levels, Google has resolved to fix this outrageous injustice at the earliest convenience.

Apple isn’t blameless in this whole debacle, it places the lettuce underneath the patty.

This may prevent the burger juices soaking and compromising the integrity of the bun itself, but it still looks pretty weird.
