Social media is filled with lots of trends and memes, which are never letting the netizens get bored. There is a meme available on almost everything in this world. One of the trending social media memes is the ‘Wrong Answers Only’, which refers to a game where participants have to reply to a question, picture or a video with incorrect responses, with humorous alternative descriptions.
Twitter user, who is a journalist by profession, started a new thread on Twitter with his post, “Why did you become a journalist? Wrong answers only.”

The post was soon flooded with some of the funniest replies, including some from the most reputed journalists in the industry.
A comment read, “I wanted a really laid-back, high-paying job where I could just put my head down and fly under the radar on a flexible schedule that doesn’t inhibit everyday life, but rather allows me to maintain healthy personal relationships.” Seems like a lot of other journalists completely agree to this statement.
