“Yeah, what is with that?”

Does your husband constantly make Doctor Who references? Has your best friend recently starting dressing like Beyonce from Lemonade? Do you feel compelled to tell everyone Lord of the Rings is just the absolute best, even though they didn’t ask?

Everyone has their obsessions, sure, but is there something that people you know seem to be obsessed with that you just don’t get?

We pitched the question to the corners of Twitter, and the response was overwhelming! Most times we were like, “Yeah, what is with that?” but a few times we slammed down our phones in shock that people weren’t on board with some things that are clearly obsession-worthy.

So, what is something people are obsessed with that you just don’t get?

Just keep swiping until it does something!
