If you enjoy using phones, you know that texting is a regular part of everyday life. We used to spend a lot of time on our phones talking to friends and loved ones. Now we are always on social media or apps chatting and watching videos, among other things.
Phones have also been modernized to improve the way we do things. In the past, texting or chatting used to involve a straightforward typing of words. Now we can use emojis to replace words.
Emojis are small digital images we use in texting to express an idea. These symbols are also used in place of words we would think of as rude or sexual if typed literally. An example is peach emojis.
Some people also use emojis to signify the emotions they feel when texting. For example, a blushing avatar to show embarrassment. Or a fiery demon to show anger.
There are also emojis that are quite puzzling. An example is the frog and a coffee cup emoji. What does it mean?
The Meaning of the Frog and a Coffee Cup Emoji
You may feel that frogs have no place anywhere close to a coffee cup, but this emoji is used extensively in texts and social media sites.
One reason for this could be that the frog on the emoji looks like Kermit, and many of us adore that frog. The other reason could be it has a coffee cup which encourages coffee addicts to pick it.
Whatever the case, this emoji has become so popular that people online are now asking what it means. Well, there is no single answer to this question. A possible explanation could be, “It’s none of my business.”
It’s in reference to the images we see of Kermit when he’s trying to mind his business. When translated into words, this emoji would mean: “Kermit minding his business, sips coffee!”.
This frog emoji is usually used after something shocking and sensational happens, leaving people shocked yet unwilling to discuss the topic.
For example:” He shouldn’t ask people not to come late to work and come in this late!….. that’s none of my business! (frog and a coffee cup emoji)
This emoji may also refer to a meme of Kermit the frog drinking a cup of tea that kids use to imply, “I’m just saying.”
Some phones, such as Apple, depict the frog emoticon with a mischievous grin on its face. For this reason, many people use this emoji after texting about something naughty they did, such as; “Just had my second cheat day of the week (frog and a coffee cup)
