The Brief: This Twitter meme format uses puns to call people out for misplaced priorities, telling them they're worried about the wrong thing.


“You’re worried about the wrong thing” memes make jokes about people worrying about one thing while neglecting a more important one.  With a combination of Twitter humor and dad humor, this meme format makes use of puns and homonyms, often presenting a scenario in which someone is hyper-focused on something while ignoring a more important thing with the same name.

Often addressing people as “mf’s,” these memes drag those who may be fixated on a hobby, standom, or relationship when they should be looking at the bigger picture.
