‘Is there a doctor on board?’: The new self-deprecating meme taking over Twitter

11 days ago


A new self-deprecating meme has people sharing just how useless they would be in a time of crisis.

The joke follows a father as he berates his child for not becoming a doctor, making people feel terrible about their actual jobs in the process.

Modern parenting group The Dad started it all off on Twitter with a light-hearted jab at how unhelpful YouTubers would be during an in-air emergency, riffing on the popular video introduction, “what up guys”.

Many other Twitter users joined in on the self-deprecating joke format, using their professions to prove that their family is disappointed with their choices.

From journalists to cinematographers, here are all of the people that would be utterly useless when it came to the crunch.

1. Becoming a product designer instead of a doctor was a big mistake.

2. This Twitter user is genuinely crucial in an emergency.

4. This person’s Tweets would be no help in a sticky situation.
