“Big Mood” is a Twitter phrase that took off in January. Its meaning is literal: People are using it to express a big, or intense, feeling.
A GIF of a smirking cheerleader with the caption “Big Mood” popularized its use, but in recent weeks, Big Mood has only gotten bigger. It’s no longer just a part of internet’s lexicon—Big Mood is now a big meme.
Take a look at some of these recent Big Mood jokes:
psychologist: okay how about this [holds up another rorschach blot] what do you see in this
me: Big Mood
psychologist: [exasperatedly takes off glasses and rubs bridge of nose]
