Text-based memes are taking over Twitter this week. First, there was the “You have $__ to build the perfect man” meme. Now, people are expressing an opinion using a series of characters that look like a person kicking another person down a set of stairs.

Yes, this meme is a little dark. But it’s not as violent as it sounds. The copypasta of a stick person kicking another stick person is being used to rank things or to literally show one person or thing kicking down another person or thing.

Is “Toxic” by Britney Spears better than the entire Beatles discography (SMH)? Is bleu cheese better than ranch dressing? The stairs meme is perfect for tweeting out these kinds of hot takes.

You can change the copypasta to make your own version of the meme. This tweet removes the second person from the meme and simply shows a person about to walk downstairs:

This tweet shows a person sitting down at the bottom of the staircase, “too lazy” to climb upstairs.

Someone even combined the stairs meme with the “in this house” meme.

In this house, we support both copypasta memes.
