The phrase “Warning this is not for kids” had Twitter excited and then confused when it started trending early on Tuesday. Though normally attached to lewds and nudes, by the time the phrase went viral, it was full of K-pop fancams, absurdist memes, and people demanding an explanation for the lack of genitals.

The whole thing got started last night with a horny meme, one that invited users to reply to the tweet with their favorite color and then wait and see what turned up in their inbox. The quarantine is clearly getting to some people as quite a lot of people ended up playing.

But for some people this wasn’t good enough. This was childish. Where were the tits?

So many people swooped in to complain about it that the original mild horniness was lost and we ended up with a weird situation where people clicked into the tag, saw nothing but the confusion, and added their own request for clarity to the noise.

This was also when the real confusion began, with people posting deeply weird things like a poster for a Christian take on why Minions are bad (we know, we know, we’re morbidly curious too but sadly there doesn’t seem to be a link available). Other appearances include a lot of K-pop and what seems to be a photo of a woman hugging an elephant’s penis (no we won’t be linking to it, I saw it so you don’t have to).

Fortunately, people were soon to return the tag to its true horny purpose.

While this wasn’t enough to kill the confusion— the whole thing is still a baffling mishmash—at least there are some Twitter users out there looking out for those horny and alone during lockdown.
