mouse meme

The “we live in a society” meme is gaining popularity online.
One version that shows two mice with different appearances has particularly gotten a lot of traction.
It seems to be a commentary on society and social media’s tendency to favor appearances.
The creator of the meme told INSIDER that “it was just meant to be a stupid, ironic joke.”

If you, like many people, happen to use the social media platform Instagram, you have probably noticed that certain content gets a lot of engagement while other posts are ignored. It is a seemingly universally known truth that a well-lit, perfectly staged picture often performs better than a post that’s, um, more candid.

The new “we live in a society” meme pokes fun at that phenomenon.

The joke is perhaps best illustrated by this illustration of two mice. On the left, there is a polished rodent that resembles Mickey Mouse. He gets a lot of attention. On the right, there is a regular mouse. No one seems to care.

Some might argue that we’re reading a little too far into things. Twitter user @660th, who created the mouse meme, said there’s nothing deep about it. “It was just meant to be a stupid, ironic joke,” they said of the meme.

But we’re not the only ones giving a deeper meaning to the picture. The format seems to have resonated online and the original tweet has gone super viral.
