Wrong Answers Only

Everyone loves a good viral meme, and one of the best parts about them is that they can come from anywhere. In the world of social media, we all know a serious presidential debate is no exception.
During last week’s Democratic debate, people may have noticed a few unfamiliar faces up at the podiums (hello! There are like 45304123912 Democratic candidates). While it’s been a big talking point in the political world, I noticed the Twitter-verse getting in on the conversation with a little something called “wrong answers only.” Apparently, the “meme” encourages other users to intentionally call an image something that it is so clearly not.
That one vice principal who keeps bragging about the novel he's working on even though it's been 15 years.

Little did I know, this “meme” was a full-blown THING. According to Mashable, it originated on Facebook and in a Reddit chain, and was ultimately brought back to “life” by actor and screenwriter Nathan Brimmer.
After combing through social media endlessly, I have to say, these memes are comedic GOLD.
