Hey guys! mr penguin is here to explain! The joke here starts off with a headline for a news article that says “A New York clock that told time now tells the time remaining.” At first you may think that the screenshot cut off the last part of the headline but that it is actually what it’s completely titled. The bottom image then shows a woman looking very nervous saying “the what?!” This is here because the title of the article says it’s counting down the time remaining, and because this is such a scary thing to read, they’re saying “the what?” Because they want to hear that again to make sure they heard the article correctly. If you look at the article though, you’ll find out that what it’s counting down is the days until the affects of global warming become irreversible which is a scary thought considering it appears as if we only have seven years to stop this before we can’t undo what we’ve done sadly.
and hey, if you’ve already read this far, you might as well drop a follow! I explain memes like this all the time :) @penguin_explains
