But who knew that all these years later the game would still be relevant?

The “the floor is” meme has swept social media recently, and these are some of the best examples that people have come up with.

2. And not just British politics

3. Actually, not even current politics

4. Some are just quite painful to see

5. While others have a positive message

6. Some centre on popular culture

7. And can go deep

8. Really, really deep

9. But sometimes, honestly, there’s no escaping the floor

10. The floor can feel shamelessly great
