King - Maine's mustached, independent senator, as well as outspoken lobster advocate and owner of the best Instagram account in Congress, who frequently sports his various lobster ties in the Capitol - celebrated the decision Wednesday.

The lobster and other new emojis will start showing up on mobile phones in August or September, according to the Unicode blog post.

The lobster emoji coming to smartphones will be a pretty snazzy way to say "I love crawfish", too, because of its resemblance to the crustacean popular in Louisiana boiling pots.
