9. First World Problems
The First World Problems meme – also known as White Whine – has taken many forms, from a variety of image macros to hashtagged tweets, but the concept is always sharply focused on sending up trivial inconveniences as melodramatic tragedies. The image macros nail the self-deprecating tone, pairing privileged complaints like "I'm so tired of eating at all of the restaurants near work" with an image of a distraught woman or a sullen emo kid sitting in a corner. On a similar tip, the Privilege Denying Dude macro sends up a similar obliviousness with exasperating comments like "Women never date nice guys like me. I hate those fucking bitches," accompanied by images of smug white guys.
