Let’s try another spot

This meme features an image macro of a screenshot from the 1989 short film Wallace & Gromit In A Grand Day Out. In this episode, Wallace and his dog, Gromit visit the moon in a homemade rocket ship.  The moon is made of cheese, so naturally, Wallace and Gromit have a lunar picnic. While holding up a plate of moon cheese, Wallace suggests to Gromit “let’s try another spot,” referring to another spot on the moon. This moment has been transformed into a meme that’s popular on Reddit, specifically on the Dank Memes subreddit. Some variations of the meme edit the text to say something else, usually by covering up or rearranging bits of the original text.
