Forget about Taylor and Kanye, Biggie and Tupac, and you and the girl who stole your dream role in the high school production of Wicked. There’s a new rivalry in town: Elmo and Rocky. And, it’s front and center in all these Elmo and Rocco memes and tweets.
If you don’t have a toddler or an IV connected to Twitter, this is about Elmo, the beloved puppet from Sesame Street, and Rocco, who is Zoe’s pet rock. Elmo’s dislike of this small stone has resurfaced thanks to a few clips online, and we’re taking notes on how well he throws shade. Where was this lesson when we were growing up?
From a cookie debate to a birthday party filled with disdain, the Elmo vs. Rocco memes and tweets are just what you need to calm down with when that coworker schedules yet another meeting that could have been an email.
Just remember that unlike Rocco, they do have ears, and your mic should always be on mute.

17. A Pisces if we ever saw one.
18. Better question: Elmo vs. Jake Paul?
19. It’s been a long day learning letters, and this is the LAST thing he needs.
