    In typical hand painted fashion, Trader Joe’s takes a little dig at the Safeway across the street that is closed for construction of a new megastore. Frank Grießhammer keenly observed that the face is almost certainly derived from Apple Color Emoji — perhaps a combination of CONFUSED FACE and DISAPPOINTED BUT RELIEVED FACE.

      It is true — over time, I have developed quite an eye for spotting Apple Color Emoji out in the wild.
