Me: *choking on a piece of bread* Paramedics: let’s get this bread
A new meme has risen, internet friends. In the past month, we've been blessed with some of the best memes of the year. We've had the Nicki stopped my bag meme, a ton of American Horror Story Michael Langdon thirst memes and, of course, the 'weird flex but ok' meme but none have been more iconic than Twitter's new 'let's get this bread' meme.
What does 'Let's get this bread' actually mean?
Well, the phrase is generally used to describe the daily grind. According to the number one trusted source, Urban Dictionary, the phrase means: "When you rise and grind. Hustle on da streets and earn that paper."
But the whole meme started because Tuesday (October 16) was actually "World Bread Day." Once people realised, the phrase exploded on Twitter and turned into one of the best memes of the year.
And now Twitter is full on inspiration, demotivational and general bread memes. So without further ado, here are some of the best tweets, that'll remind you to wake up and getcha damn bread:

Honestly, what if you're off carbs? What if you're gluten free?
