Important developments that occurred over the weekend were not Tropical Storm Philippe moving over south Florida or the resignation of coach McElwain from the University of Florida football team.  It's that Google will be "dropping everything" to work on its cheeseburger emoji.  Apparently the kerfuffle is over the cheese placement.  On the Apple cheeseburger emoji, the cheese is on top of the patty wile Google's version has the cheese below.  As classic as the toilet paper roll flow, this promoted one Twitter user named Thomas Baekdal to ask, "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." 

While as trivial as many would call the cheese placement, Google's CEO, Sundar Pichai responded that the tech giant would, "(Will) drop everything use we are doing and address it Monday if folks can agree on the correct way to do this!"

Although the agreement may have already been established as every other Unicode emoji has the cheese above the patty, except for Google.
