Well, it’s Thursday, and it’s time to release the weekly list of available emoji domains.

Most reply, “Oh, domain name squatter, huh?”
Which then leads us down the domain investing education path of the difference between a squatter and investor.
And without fail, I always share the parallels of physical to virtual real estate comparison while driving the point home typically using the person’s residence as prime example.
