'Be like' memes are the most annoying thing right now

BE LIKE memes are infuriating. They're annoying. They're enough to end Facebook friendships. Almost. 

You can't jump on your Facebook account without being bombarded. 

"This is Bill, Bill does not play candy crush, Bill has his own life, Bill is smart, be like Bill" are the words near a stick man wearing a beanie. 

Sigh. 

Whether they're telling you to be like Bill or be like Jill or be like Bob, or Barry or Mary, these memes are the cartoon equivalent of the guy at the party who thinks he knows everything and thinks you don't. 

Facebook communities have popped up all over the place filled with people who actually enjoy the torture inflicted by these thousands of memes telling us to be like imaginary stick people. 

The first few were funny. The next 50 were tiresome and the hundreds that have followed are enough to make you unplug your computer entirely - well, actually, that may not be such a bad thing. 

Is this the most annoying meme that ever existed?

This poll ended on 29 January 2016.

Yes! - 21%

No - 24%

It's definitely up there with the worst of them - 39%

I love these memes, keep 'em coming - 15%
