Perhaps you’ve seen the ‘and it shows…” meme going around for the past few days. Well, in true internet fashion, they’ve reached their weirdness fever pitch.
The meme format began as a way to highlight how growing up with or without specific things — like a granite kitchen island or those damn Livestrong bracelets — informs people’s personalities.

But as the meme caught on, the internet did what it does best: made it weird. People started referencing everything from getting banned from Club Penguin to opening up other dimensions in Denny’s parking lots. Leave it to Twitter to take a simple concept designed to hit us right in the nostalgia and take it to the tenth power.
Despite the sarcastic rabbit hole these memes have been going down, the posts have managed to stay strangely relatable. They all invoke very specific images that definitely make us think of someone we knew in middle school.
