Still waiting on a bird emoji that works well with a colour modifier to make it red.
The current one (U+1F426) is different colours on different systems and can even look like a pigeon. We aren't all pigeons. It's racist.

At last the Unicode standard will be able to codify my opinion thereof!

Vomiting tab character.

Vomiting carriage return?

Vomiting terminal bell!
On my terminal (Mac OS 10.9):
• putting a combining mark on a tab character puts the mark over the last space
• putting a combining mark on a carriage return puts the mark over the first character on the line
• putting a combining mark on a bell puts the mark over the character before the bell
• putting a combining mark on a backspace puts the mark over the character before where the cursor ends up after the backspace

So those would result in something along the lines of a stream of barf coming down from above onto character below where the joiner ends up?
