As the midterm elections wind down, the internet is abuzz with political commentary. One Twitter user decided to “have some fun” with a blank CNN graphic to break the tension—and a Photoshop meme was born.

Jordan Uhl, a video distribution manager at Move On, tweeted an invitation for people to use the images as memes. The responses did not disappoint.
Some responses were painfully accurate, riffing on Star Wars, guns, and awkward Thanksgiving family dinners.
