Yes, there's already cactus. And a grinning sunshine wearing sunglasses. But is that really enough to represent your Phoenix-ness when it comes to our favorite form of self-expression, the emoji? We didn't think so. Here's a set of emoji we wish would come to our phones, and soon.
Demented Sun: It's a cruel, cruel summer.
Joe Arpaio Pink Boxers: These may soon be a collector's item, but we fear they'll long remain an icon of the world's most self-aggrandizing sheriff.
Tovrea Castle: Our favorite local building.
Douchey Scottsdale Sunglasses: The uniform for a certain part of town.
Dias De Los Muertos Skull: An homage to our most interesting holiday.
Gila Monster: Scare your East Coast friends with this one.
