    Some of you may "know your meme," others may not. Here is a description of the "What People Think I Do / What I Really Do" meme from KnowYourMeme.com:
    "'What People Think I Do / What I Really Do' is a series of visual charts depicting a range of preconceptions associated with a particular field of occupation or expertise. […] this series compares varying impressions about one’s profession held by others, self-image and the often mundane reality of the job."



    See the winners here!!


    Some notable examples:

    We thought it would be fun to have our members work together to come up with some examples about raising chickens (or other poultry).

    Some examples:

    • What do your friends think you do?
    • What do your neighbors think you do?
    • What do your kids think you do?
    • What do your coworkers think you do?
    • What does your spouse / significant other think you do?
    • What do you think you do?
    • What do you really do?
    • … and any others you can think of!

    You can either:

    1. Use the template below, fill it out, and post it as a reply here, or
    2. Reply and post one or more pictures with an image and then the text below it

    Template

    The best submission will get a 6 month free GFM for themselves or a friend!

    We look forward to your submissions!!!


    Note: You don’t have to have a ton of different boxes. If you want, just have a single picture and the "what xxxyyy think I do" under it.
