Let’s all agree — the Internet is vast. There is no dearth of information, sociopolitical discussions and debates when it comes to the social media space. Another thing which is in plenty on the World Wide Web is memes. Yes, for people with a wicked sense of humour that can crack anybody up in no time, or for those who just want to keep scrolling through endless sections of relatable funny illustrations, Internet is one heck of a place!
Closer home, Indian meme-makers on Twitter have almost always left no stone unturned when it comes to ‘work’. From making hilarious memes out a newborn baby’s ‘Rajinikanth’ pose to immortalising Shashi Tharoor’s impeccable English as memes — no holds are barred.
This time, it is a new meme format called ‘The Floor is’ that is going viral on the micro-blogging site, and by the look of it, Indian Twitterati have already warmed up to it.
Here are some of the hilarious ‘Floor is’ desi spins doing the rounds.

The format works on the concept of irony. Say, if ‘the floor is Indian Law’, then the person trying to get a grasp of it entirely (but miserably failing) is Salman Khan. We did not say this. Twitter did!
Earlier hilarious ‘Hiding from a serial killer’ tweets had gone viral, after Tweeple started giving funny plot twists of their own to the format, making them into memes.
