"You vs. the penguin she told you not to worry about."

National Geographic posted a video on Twitter of two male penguins fighting that was quickly turned into a meme Friday night. "This husband has come home to find his wife with another penguin," the narrator says while footage plays showing the male penguin picking a fight with his rival. "He flips out. His strategy is simple: batter the homewrecker until he flees."

After the fight, the two male penguins call for the female to choose the winner. "She chooses... the homewrecker," the narrator intones. As soon as this was posted, everyone on Twitter collectively lost their minds. (It's true, we were there.)
