“thank u, next” is the latest song by Ariana Grande and, as the children say, it’s a bop! Talking about all her exes, Ms. Grande took to her music to let her emotions about her break-up with Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson out. What wasn’t expected was for the entire Internet to make a meme of one of the lyrics.

“One taught me love, one taught me patience, one taught me pain,” is a line sung in the song and now Twitter is using it to put up three pictures that relate to their lives. Everyone seems to want to add to this very relatable meme.

Then there are people like this Twitter user who went for a low blow too soon.

Even Sesame Street is getting on the meme? Which is a weird thing to say?!????

Some of the best came from people just doing the same three things for each one.

Much like the finest memes out there, the ones we find most relatable are those that are pop culture references.

Like, for instance, some of Carrie Bradshaw’s loves from Sex and the City.

Mamma Mia lives on.

We may never get the third Sex and the City movie but at least we have this meme to remind us that it is because Kim Cattrall hasn’t signed on for the third movie yet.

Never forget our love of Shrek. But we love it enough to let it go (meaning why are we rebooting Shrek).

We all once believed in Kanye, then we were tired of Kanye, and now … we’re done.

For me, personally, my love, patience, and pain all emerge from my love of I, Tonya.

Good memes are good for a reason. They bring us joy, are relatable, and let us be nerds about whatever our heart desires. So thank you, Ariana Grande.
