Clever Twitter Meme Playfully Laments The Death Of Romance

In the age of online dating, sliding into DMs, and social distancing, romantic pursuit is looking more like a casual 'wyd' text and less like the elaborate, tenacious courtships we grew up marveling at in Hollywood movies. Not that there's anything wrong with a more straightforward, no-bullshit approach to flirting—the concept of dating lots of different people throughout one's adulthood is much more socially accepted now than it used to be. And as the social conditions change over time, it's only natural that our behavior should change accordingly. The problem is, we're complicated, overthinking humans. We still have to reconcile the realities of modern dating with desire, fantasy, and unrealistic expectations. In 1960, French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan said of love and desire, 'imagine you see in front of you a beautiful flower, or a ripe fruit. You reach out your hand to grab it. But at the moment you do, the flower, or the fruit, bursts into flames. In its place you see another hand appear, reaching back towards your own.' Lacan believed that desire is produced in the margin between one's appetite for satisfaction and the demand for love. He theorized that desire isn't exactly innate—desire is actually mediated by the desire of the 'Other.' And what does this big Other desire? Well if we knew that, then our desire burst into flame like Lacan's beautiful flower. Because it's the very recognition of the object of desire that we lack and therefore seek. Our desire is like an empty vessel that constantly gets filled with the desire of the Other, always changing as the socio-cultural context changes. And so it makes sense then that millennials are unsatisfied with certain normalized social behaviors that have been shaped by new social conditions. Reality is at odds with what we are made to desire—an idealized version of reality that fiction routinely implants into us.

We're featuring a viral Twitter meme that very succinctly illustrates this age-old problem of expectation vs. reality. The meme cleverly takes that familiar 'wyd' text (which is comically concise and yet loaded with implications) and juxtaposes it with absurdly theatrical shows of concern from well-known romcom scenes, television dialogue, and corny song lyrics. It's always 'wyd' and never 'but, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?' It's always 'wyd' and never 'you had me at hello.' It's always 'wyd' and never 'you're like my own personal brand of heroin.' Get it?

Perhaps the best thing about this meme is the level of self-awareness it reveals about the poster. Those tweeting the meme are simultaneously admitting their desire for a vague, idealized version of romance and making fun of themselves for it, which becomes evident in the more absurd tweets. One of the funniest examples of this meme is perhaps the one that uses Anakin Skywalker's infamous line in Star Wars: Episode II—"It's always 'wyd' and never 'I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth.'" The notoriously cringey scene was supposed to represent a romantic, intimate turning point in the characters' relationship. Instead it feels more like a terribly awkward Tinder date that would have had a real-life Padme running in the other direction. The decision to insert this line into the meme turns it into a hilarious mockery of its original sentiment. We've collected some of the funniest examples of the trending Twitter meme for your amusement.

Hilarious Twitter Meme Mocks People Who Find Gender Pronouns Confusing

It's 2021 and a lot of people are still confused by gender pronouns, specifically 'they/them' pronouns for gender-nonconforming people. It's pretty simple, really—gender-nonconforming people do not conform to the gender binary and therefore prefer others to use non-gendered pronouns when referring to them. But for whatever reason, some people can't wrap their heads around the singular 'they,' despite the fact that it's grammatically correct. A trending Twitter meme very cleverly emphasizes the absurdity of the confusion surrounding pronouns by pointing out vastly more complicated social norms and interest groups that have been accepted by society. "Pronouns are confusing" bro literally what is quantum mechanics? "Pronouns are confusing" bro literally what is the stock market? "Pronouns are confusing" bro literally what is World of Warcraft lore? The point being, that if you can wrap your head around even basic math, you should be able to understand pronoun use. We've collected some of the best examples of the 'pronouns are confusing' Twitter meme

Unsurprisingly and with impressive haste, Twitter meme'd the hell out of Bernie's look every step of the way. We've collected some of the funniest Twitter memes and reactions to Bernie's whole inauguration vibe. Thanks for all the memes, Bernie.

Viral Twitter Meme Pokes Fun At Men Who Avoid Therapy

The stereotype about men being more emotionally detached and repressed than women is a pretty inflated generalization when you consider all of the cultural and societal factors that affect all of us, but if you look at the statistics, it's true that women are more likely to seek mental health treatment than men. Twitter has turned this stereotype into a pretty amusing and clever meme that roasts the sort of men who will go out of their way to avoid therapy at all costs. Some of the funniest tweets manage to reference fictional male characters in the meme to add another layer to the joke—for example, 'men will literally take the ring to Mordor instead of going to therapy.'

We've collected some of our favorite tweets that hilariously exemplify the meme.

20 Memes That Poke Fun At The Vanity Of Online Popularity

At first the lonely wojak stood in the corner at a party, watching everyone have fun while thinking, 'I wish I was at home playing video games.' Well, the meme is back but he's no longer the introvert feeling regretful at a social gathering. Now he's quietly lamenting the fact that no one in the room knows that he's got a mildly notable internet following. Social environments are pretty different for this wojak IRL, and perhaps some very online people can relate.

Whoever revived this meme meant to reference the surreal nature of living two disparate social lives—the one where you ostentatiously post online and the normal, boring IRL one. Other memelords have taken off with the trend and subverted the meaning even further into absurdity, sometimes even combining it with other popular memes. We've selected some of the best 'they don't know X' memes for you to post to your mildly popular meme page.
