You can now search the online review site Yelp using emojis—those little cartoon-ish characters you can create with a certain set of keystrokes. search on a pair of scissors, you get listings for hair salons. A high heel gets you shoe stores. You get the picture(s).
I don't even want to search on a smiley face or a wink. Pretty sure the Internet has taken things one step too far.

Some results were just...the usual for Yelp. 

Others were pretty literal.
But seriously: Could this be a useful search tool?
