    Are you sure he doesn’t know how to use them? Maybe we should do a semi-colonoscopy to find out ;-)

    Or emojionally challenged would also work. (The word challenged in particular is often used in tongue-in-cheek quips nowadays: He’s not short, he’s vertically challenged.)

    @J.R. ooh, I like that one! (My friends sometimes say that I am vertically challenged, but I prefer lacking on the y-axis)
