Social media is full of ‘yeh toh yeh bhi hai’ wisecracks and troll memes such as these
Ladki cute honi chahiye, hot toh aloo parantha bhi hota hai. Dost kameeney hone chahiye; co-operative toh banks bhi hote hain. Bahu sexy honi chahiye, sushil toh Shinde bhi hai!
If your friends have been feeding you with similar ‘ye toh yeh bhi bhi, woh hona chahiye’ jokes non-stop, don’t blame them. The one-line wisecracks, comparing one thing to another with common attributes, have gone viral on social media like no other phrase in recent times.
Facebook and Twitter are full of them, friends are doing all the double-meaning digs they can, and workplaces are brimming with laughs over funny ones among colleagues.
Sample some more: ‘Mobile toh Blackberry hona chahiye, S2 S3 S4 toh train ke dibbe bhi hote hain’, ‘Weather rainy hona chahiye, Sunny toh Leone bhi hai’, and ‘marriages ‘love’ honi chahiye, ‘fixed’ toh IPL bhi hai!’
Most people are playing sport to the sudden craze, but there are some who think it’s not really funny. “Take all #Chahiye jokes in the right spirit. No offence meant...” tweeted Yebhi, while another user, Sanket, wrote, “I refuse to do anymore “ye hona chahiye, woh hona chahiye” jokes. That’s it, final!”
