Little Women Has Produced the Perfect Meme For All the Things Everyone Simply Can’t Do

Greta Gerwig’s Little Women is once again the talk of Twitter, and on this occasion because it has produced a very good meme for expressing, well, the postmodern mess that is doing stuff — or not doing stuff, specifically, because you just can’t. Given its universal appeal, the meme has spread far and wide across Twitter, with speed comparable to that tragic scarlet fever outbreak in the original novel. In the critical darling of a film, a modern adaptation of the 1868 Louisa May Alcott cla...
