I just got a new KBC Poker II and am playing around with the programmable key mapping. I'd like to bind one of my keyboard keys to the poop emoji (💩) for maximum speed. Is there a quick keyboard shortcut I can use to input a specific emoji character like the pile of poo?

I know that you can bring up an emoji input panel in Yosemite with the keyboard shortcut Shift + Apple + Space, that's not exactly what I'm looking for. I want the pile of poo to squeeze directly out of my keyboard and onto the screen without having to go through the emoji panel.

In Mac OS you can use the keyboard shortcut cmd+ctrl+space to bring up the emoji pallet and then just start typing the name of an emoji character:
