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.

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.

Gamers Can't Agree On How To Rank The GTA Games

While we all wait patiently for even the subtlest GTA 6 tease, some are taking to Twitter to reignite the long-debated question about how to 'correctly' rank the games in the Grand Theft Auto series. Unsurprisingly, everyone's got their own opinions based on differing rationale. When judging the quality of a game, some prioritize story and characters, while others are more impressed by graphics and technical achievements. But perhaps the fact that no one can really agree how to rank the GTA games is a tribute to the series as a whole—whether San Andreas will always hold a special place in your heart, or you were completely dazzled by those beautiful GTA V graphics, there are no wrong answers because they're all fun as hell.

Cursed Frappuccino Order Inspires Baristas Of Twitter To Share Their Worst

One might think the option to order Starbucks online would make the job a little easier for the baristas—minimizing awkward miscommunication in a fast-paced work environment has got to be an improvement, right? Well, it turns out the absence of social interaction in online orders has also removed the embarrassment that comes with ordering an obnoxious Frappuccino with a million extra ingredients. So not only have those annoying orderers continued their cursed behavior, they're now emboldened to go even further. @ProjectJosiee is one unfortunate Starbucks employee who tweeted a photo of an obscene mobile order for a customer called Edward. The thread almost instantly became a support group for traumatized baristas who shared their own snapshots of deranged Starbucks and Dunkin' concoctions. We've put together some of the best replies of the hilarious and cursed thread. And if you're one of those '5+ ingredient' customers, remember to be generous with that tip.

Simple Game Of Thrones Tweet Reawakens Season 8 Hate

The North remembers what happened at the red wedding, and Game of Thrones fans remember what happened in Season 8. It's been a decade since the HBO series first hooked millions of viewers, edging devoted fans with season after season of multi-layered storylines and cliff-hangers, all culminating in an underwhelming final season that felt like someone hastily sweeping dust under a rug. It's no surprise that GoT fans felt personally insulted after @GameOfThrones tweeted 'Winter is coming,' a famous line that was once heavy with the promise of an epic conclusion to the dramatic fantasy series. Game of Thrones faded out of the zeitgeist pretty quickly after that final episode, and yet even two years later, the fans are still bitter. Keep scrolling for a handful of the most amusing spicy responses to @GameOfThrones's triggering tweet.

New White Claw Drink Triggers Hilarious Four Loko Nostalgia

White Claw is getting a boozy makeover with its newest hard seltzer 'Surge' and the news has many reminiscing about the original Four Loko, notorious for its chaotic recipe consisting of taurine, guarana, caffeine and at one point, wormwood. The caffeinated iteration of the fabled 'premium malt beverage' was discontinued in 2010 after a series of Four Loko related deaths and accidents, but that hasn't stopped Twitter from expressing tongue-in-cheek nostalgia for those Loko nights of yore. Many are drawing comparisons between the infamous malt beverage and White Claw, which has even roused some hot takes from the Four Loko Twitter account. Whether you've got a taste for the sauce or you're a curious tea totaler, the fact that beverage news has triggered such an impassioned response is pretty amusing in itself.

Journalist Gets Roasted After Claiming Horror Movies Can't Be Set In Space

What's up with Twitter these days? Are the blue checks running out of opinions? Because lately the takes have been extra bad, and today's main character is journalist @elle_hunt, who thinks a horror movie cannot be set in space. It all started when @elle_hunt tweeted a poll asking whether or not Alien was a horror movie, after which she followed up with the controversial bad take in question: 'My argument: horror cannot be set in space.' @elle_hunt got dragged so hard by so many people, that she accidentally made 'Alien' and 'Event Horizon' trend on Twitter. While many responded with stills from their favorite sci-fi horror films, others argued simply that 'space' is just a setting, and horror can exist in any setting, as long as there is fear. We've collected some of the spiciest and funniest replies to @elle_hunt's Twitter fail.

The Internet Laments The Death Of Yahoo! Answers

The internet's most beloved community-driven repository of stupid questions and terrible answers will be shut down forever starting May 4th. Before the rise of social media, Yahoo Answers was once a place for anyone with an internet connection to ask embarrassing and forbidden questions behind the comfort of anonymity. Today, for anyone over a certain age, Yahoo Answers is an artifact of another internet era—a time when social forums were simple and clumsy, and online identities weren't curated for hypothetical audiences. These days we're spoiled by information and in this sense it's easy to take the internet for granted and mock our past selves who didn't know shit about anything. But imagine being ten years old in 2005, suddenly granted access to an oracle of sorts. With only ten minutes before your mom gets home, you finally ask the oracle the question that's been eating away at you for weeks: How is babby formed? How girl get pragnent?

RIP Yahoo Answers; you will be missed. Along with the rest of the internet, we are mourning this great loss. 2021's burning of the Great Library of Alexandria. Out of respect, we have collected some Twitter reactions to the tragic news along with some of our favorite classics from the legendary Q&A website.

20 Tweets On NFTs & The Unstoppable Crypto Art Craze

What the hell is an NFT anyway? Non-Fungible Tokens are basically digital assets or collectors items, sort of like a rare Pokémon card that has gained value over time due to its scarcity, except NFTs only exist digitally on 'proof of work' blockchains, like Ethereum. When one buys an NFT, they aren't buying the image itself, but rather the token that points to the image or video and says 'this is the only one that exists.' Now people can even buy individual tweets as NFTs, but the way that works is a little more complicated, and frankly, we don't really get it. All we know is, Jack Dorsey is selling his first tweet ever for like, millions of dollars and 'Bad Luck Brian' sold an NFT of his school photo for 20 ETH (about $36,000 at the time). NFTs aren't only being used to sell digital art, the memes have unsurprisingly taken over and you can find everything from the 'Deal With It' sunglasses to 'Nyan Cat' selling for lots of money. All of this absurdity might seem like a harmless game to some—buying the metadata of original troll face for thousands of dollars in crypto? Sure, okay. But sadly minting NFTs on proof-of-work blockchain has disturbing environmental consequences. The average NFT that gets minted to the ETH network has the same carbon footprint as one European resident's electricity consumption for 1.5 months. So until we can figure out a more efficient way to sell digital assets, some suggest that participants in this madness will have to offset the environmental cost by doing things like reinvesting their gains into renewable energy.

We've collected some tweets that paint a picture of the current NFT frenzy—some from high-profile public figures who are participating and some reactions from people who are watching from the sidelines.
