Mansplaining is so 2021. In 2022, the girl explaining memes were everywhere online, and the results were equal parts relatable and hilarious.

In the age of binging content online, HBO has managed to keep audiences captivated by revisiting the age of water-cooler TV.

4. “Un-cuh Jaayms” – Julia Fox
Julia Fox’s pronunciation of “Uncut Gems” gets a spot on our list through the sheer weight of numbers alone.
After the verbal mishap, there was a period of close to three weeks where “Un-cuh Jaayms” dominated lip-syncing videos on TikTok.
5. Nobody wants to work anymore
We all know billionaires are out of touch with the common people, but it wasn’t until Kim Kardashian tried to give women in business some advice that we realised just how out of touch some people are.
6. “She’s/He’s a 10, but…”
We aren’t really about assigning a numerical value to human beings, but the “She/he’s a 10, but…” memes were (for the most part) a bit of lighthearted fun.

7. Don’t Worry, Darling Spit-Gate
From Swifties to Harry Styles stans, the internet loves a good conspiracy theory and a bit of drama.
Here’s an example of the Girl Explaining meme being used to perfection.

Were Little Miss memes kind of cringe? Yes. But isn’t everything on the internet kind of cringe? Absolutely.
9. The green M&M is too sexy
We never thought we’d be talking about the physical attractiveness of candy, but here we are.
When M&Ms swapped stilettos for sneakers, Twitter went into a frenzy, and it even gave Tucker Carlson one more thing to get irrationally angry about.
Whether you’re a fan of Euphoria or not, it’s impossible to ignore the quality memes that season two produced.
From Maddy saying, “Bitch, you better be joking” line or Cassie hiding in a bathtub, Euphoria was a meme-lovers buffet last season.
