Now, this video has caught the fancy of social media, and it has taken no time for memes to do the rounds on various social media platforms. T-shirts with the hashtag, #YehBikGayiHaiGormint, have become popular all over. Not only have we desis come up with ingenious jokes, this format has also reached the US. Remember protestors at a rally opposing Donald Trump government’s ban on muslim immigrants? The gormint talk reached there too. From absurd to downright hilarious — here are some popular ones.
