'Unpopular Opinion' About Working Weekends Gets Roasted by the Internet

Another day, another terrible Twitter take. The state of how we work has been a major topic of discussion as the world attempts to return to normalcy as Covid-19 seems to be less of a threat for many countries. There have been many think-pieces and Twitter threads about working remotely and fair wages. Then there was the revelation that people would rather quit their jobs than go back to the office. People are starting to question how much of our lives are devoted to work. Which is healthy. Time is precious. We need money, but should we be grinding ourselves to death for it? Or spending 10 hours a week commuting? We don't think so. 

There are, of course, opponents of this radical way of thinking. There are CEOs who are eager to pull the plug on remote work - and the BBC is reporting that the five-day workweek will be re-normalized by 2022. But one person thinks that five days is not enough. Twitter user and venture capitalist (Principal at Atomic) Jordan Kong stoked the ire of a lot of people this past weekend when she tweeted her thoughts on young people trying to work on their careers. 

The sentiment - which seems a little dehumanizing - was not received well. Proponents of balance and "working to live" were quick to share their opposition. Incredulous people shared some roasty zingers. And then, of course, the funny people of Twitter turned the tweet into a snowclone, with some memes showing their disdain for the take and others using it to make jokes filled with pop culture references. Though we're sure some people will disagree, it's nice to see some people standing up for our right to not work. Even if they're doing it through memes.

Mocking Meme Imagines Various Movies with Dialogue Written by Joss Whedon

As writer and director Joss Whedon comes under fire for a history of alleged abuse and misconduct, Twitter is taking the opportunity to burn Whedon's notably goofy writing style through a clever snowclone meme. The first examples of the meme seem to have come from @MeganBitchell, who posted stills from Silence of the Lambs and Saw captioned with Whedon-esque dialogue. 

 

Once well-known for girlbossing his femme characters and fancying himself a champion of feminism, Whedon's 'wokeness' and stylistic instincts have become somewhat of a joke in light of recent accusations. The fact that people can parody his dialogue with little effort makes the meme even funnier. Try it out—it works on literally any movie.

'Is There A Doctor On Board' Memes Are Self-Deprecating Twitter Gold

A lot of funny crap happened over Thanksgiving break, but our favorite Twitter meme has got to have been the "Is there a doctor on board" joke format. The self-deprecating snowclone, which mostly plays on a parents' disappointment in their child's career choice, is perfect for an emotionally charged and often family-filled holiday season.  It's a great way to laugh at our feelings of inadequacy and parental pressure - which definitely beats crying about it all.
