Whether you're a fan of the daily five-letter word puzzle or not, it's time to accept the facts: Wordle is here to stay. The guessing game, which challenges players to guess one five-letter word in six tries or less, was created by Josh Wardle during the pandemic, then bought by the New York Times in 2022.
In January 2022, The Guardian reported that more than 2 million Americans had incorporated the game into their daily routine. Not to mention, it's become a major topic of interest in pop culture. (Basically, if you ask us, not playing Wordle is like the equivalent of not watching Game of Thrones. You are somewhat of an outsider!)
That said, the game continues to trend on Twitter regularly as folks post their scores or share their thoughts on the latest game. And naturally, this has also led to the creation of lots and lots of funny Wordle memes.
So, shall we take a look at some? Keep scrolling for the best Wordle memes on the Internet.
