Mainers, rejoice!

The Lobster Emoji, a hard-fought victory for all of us here in Vacationland, is almost here.

Turns out, these things take FOREVER for international techno-bureaucrats to approve.

According to News Center Maine's Liam Nee and Apple News, the lobster emoji just became available for iOS (Apple) app developers, and might be available on your iPhone in 4-6 weeks. If you have an android, it might take even longer.

Apple announced that more than 70 new emoji (emoji is the plural, not emojis!) will be coming to the new iOS update when it hits phones soon.
