The Fab Five are the target of a new meme trend, and it's amazing.
If you haven't watched Queer Eye on Netflix yet, first of all, what's wrong with you? And second of all, get to it and bring tissues.
Jonathan, Antoni, Tan, Karamo, and Bobby are truly a fabulous quintet. Their personalities and specialties create the perfect blend of convivial, educational, and sentimental.
Maybe it's because the Internet knows they're all good sports, but for some reason the Fab Five are the perfect object of humor - particularly a meme.
The latest in the Queer Eye meme trend is "Queer Eye but", where writers imagine up alternate scenarios to our favorite crying-through-tears Netflix binger. These substitute endings range from scholarly, to ludicrous, to empowering, and everything in between. Sort of like what happens with the Fab Five get together.
