A new variation on the find “X” in a crowd meme—where you shout something the person you’re looking for would find offensive and need to correct—is sweeping Twitter. Similar to the shave and a haircut bit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the meme format involves a person hiding under the bed from an armed robber. The robber says something that the person can’t help but respond to.

Quite a lot of the ones that came next also feature song lyrics, often from songs with particular resonance for age or cultural groups.

Including Dr. Jen Gunter, the internet’s favorite gynaecologist (don’t read the follow-up comments, people are gross).

Plus a quick jab at internet reply guys.

There’s still time to get on this yourself so go ahead and tweet what would get you out from under the bed.
