Google CEO Will 'Drop Everything' To Fix The Cheeseburger Emoji

Google CEO Sundar Pichai

Instead of putting the cheese up on top of the patty, like most people and restaurants do, this design placed it on the bottom.

"A cheeseburger emoji, otherwise known as a burger".

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

Twitter user Thomas Baekdal wrote "I think we need to have a discussion about how Google's burger emoji is placing the cheese underneath the burger, while Apple puts it on top". When Samsung makes a burger, it puts cheese between the tomato and the lettuce.

Google's sacrilege struck a nerve immediately (Baekdal's tweet has now been liked 37,000 times, and somehow even got its own Fox & Friends segment this morning), forcing Google's CEO Sundar Pichai to address the company's looming #burgergate yesterday on his Sunday off. Though I appreciate the effort to keep the bottom bun from sogging out through the clever placement of greenery, doing so can result in grease pooling within the valleys of the lettuce, which is gross.

But he's also got the world's most important internet company to run, so he'd prefer to crowdsource the proper ingredient order.

By Saturday night, Pichai weighed in, saying that Google would address the stacking - if people could agree on the correct way to do it.

Companies like Google and Apple comes up with their own interpretation of the symbols approved by the Unicode Consortium, a nonprofit that sets the global standard for emoji and other software.

Not a single one places the cheese underneath the patty though, so Google's alone in its mistake there. We hope Google fixes it soon.
