How to use squinting face with tongue emoji

Thanks to the cheeky nature of this face, it’s perfect for following up on a joke. In particular, jokes targeted at a person. Let’s say one of your friends despises brussel sprouts, you could make a joke about their distaste and then follow up with the Tongue Out face to show you are just being cheeky. For example: Want some extra brussels? 😝 In group chats, this emoji is a good way to react to something funny but not overly so, where you would most likely use the CWL Face. Or it could be used to react to something you didn’t actually find funny but you don’t want to ignore the recipient. Let’s say your friend posts a story in the chat that they find absolutely hilarious. It’s not that funny to you - so you could react with the Tongue Out face to feign amusement.
