What posts will end up becoming a meme are often hard to determine.
Just what pulls something into the public consciousness and makes people go "I need to do/say/post that too"?
Often, it's just because people relate to it, and the new "Some of y'all...and it shows" meme is no exception.
The uses for this meme seem endless. It's only text, so no photo editing ability is necessary, and it requires just the time it takes to type a tweet to use it. People are using it in quite a variety of ways.
