This feels like an invitation to make stuff up..... I will resist the urge:

'emoji' has nothing to do with emotions in the way that 'emoticon' does. The etymology is in fact Japanese: 'eh' (picture) 'moji' (character).,the%20word%20describes%20a%20pictograph.

In terms of Unbelievable things, I'm not sure whether I believe that the following is real but it does discuss what's believable in a story:

Also I know there's a principle in writing that, to maintain suspension of disbelief, if you want to put something in that's true but unbelievable, instead put in something believable. An example of this might be when the writer's of The Wire had Omar jump out of a 4th floor window to escape a gangfight ambush. Which he did and escaped somewhat successfully. They viewed that as a bit hard to believe so they made it a second floor window instead.
