Know Your Fat Meme — Anti-Joke Chicken

Today’s macro is a version of the Anti-Joke Chicken,  a meme that starts with a joke setup and then subverts the joke with a non-punchline. Some sample Anti-Joke Chicken macros include: Knock knock / Come in. Your Mama is so old / She’s probably going to die soon. Why doesn’t God like fruitcake? / Because He […]
