What does the Tide pod twitter meme mean?!
If you've been on Twitter over the past few days, you'll have noticed that almost every other tweet on your damn timeline is a meme about people eating Tide pods (you know, those little laundry detergent things...) But no one quite seems to know why or what it actually means.
ok what is going on with people all of a sudden wanting to eat tide pods— Ricky Dillon (@RickyPDillon) December 28, 2017
How did the Tide Pods meme start?
For years now, people have been saying how delicious laundry detergent pods actually looked. Small, colourful little packages with liquid inside that just looked like it would taste like something juicy? Like Fruit Gushers on steroids. Like a giant boba tea. Now people are tweeting about it because literally eeeeeveryone thinks the same thing.
What does it mean?
It literally means nothing. It's just a joke. It's a ReLaTaBLe gag about nice Tide pods would be if they were edible instead of FORBIDDEN and it's just escalated from there. Some are keeping it real and pretending that they're fine confectionary, some are likening them to drugs and others are just using them as a morbid 'drink the bleach' metaphor.
in all honesty before tide pods became a thing to joke about. ive had my eye on those bitches underneath the sink for as long as i can remember. why do they look visually appealing enough to eat. why do i want to eat dish soap— seizure salad (@funkxwidme) December 27, 2017

the eating tide pods meme is one of the weirdest relatable things the internet has produced this year— loona stan account (@ugsadkid) December 26, 2017
Whatever the fuck is going on here, just remember... it's just a joke. Please don't eat them. Or do. Whatever, I'm not your mother.
