How and When to Use the 🫔 Tamale Emoji

  • Hot tamale is a slang phrase used for someone who is physically alluring. Baring this usage in mind, you can use 🫔 while talking about someone who tickled your pheromones (a little or a lot).
  • Besides, ‘tamale’ is also a colloquial word for a funny person (as said in the paragraph above). If it’s you, feel free to use 🫔 in your social media profile name. If it’s not you, you can use 🫔 while referring to that artist (anyone who can make you laugh is talented, including people in power).
  • Keeping the previous point within the radar, 🫔 can also be used to sarcastically say “What a joke” too. For instance, if you’re commenting on a satirical post or you’re reposting/retweeting something from a similar genre, then you can use this emoji in such contexts.
  • Now, the obvious usage. While sharing pictures/videos of tamales or generally about Mesoamerican cuisine, you can pop the 🫔 emoji into those captions as well.
