We’ve all been through those angsty teen phases where fluctuations in hormones bring out the cringe in us. When I was 14, my worst display of teen angst was probably hiding in the bathroom during class to write poetry about being misunderstood.

But honestly, we’re pretty into the ‘deep’ pseudo-philosophical cringe. Give us all the profound joker image macros and ‘we live in a society’ platitudes, because we think they’re freakin’ hilarious.
We’ve got some great examples of cringey deep posts that were shared in earnest and self-reflexive memes that satirize the angsty teen voice.
