A new relationship meme recently made the rounds on Twitter, and — like "build the perfect man" before it — it got really weird, really fast.
The meme is based on a dated stock image of some dude whispering in some girl's ear (barf) with the caption: "Post the four words every girl wants whispered in her ear."
At some point, this was probably some earnest 2011 Facebook thing, but it's taken on a new life: the life of a 48-hour meme that people got tired of almost instantly.
That's not to say there weren't a few gems, though. Like most memes of this nature, "post the four words" is best when it's super niche — and if there's one thing Twitter can deliver, it's niche content.
I’m too lazy to do this so here’s a free idea for someone: photoshop Grimes and Elon on that “type the four words every girl wants to hear” image and then tweet it with “comets are 100% cocaine.”

Yes, there were a few earnest examples ("You look great tonight!"), but those make us feel queasy, so we will not include them here. There are plenty of places on the internet for earnestness, but alongside a problematic stock photo isn't one of them.
Okay, as you were. Happy meme-ing.
