Twitter/Kelsey Harmon and papaw

Early Wednesday evening, Northeastern State University student Kelsey Harmon tweeted perhapsĀ the saddest photo in the medium's existence:

dinner with papaw tonightā€¦ā¤ļø he made 12 burgers for all 6 grandkids and I'm the only one who showed. šŸ˜¢ love him pic.twitter.com/0z0DkPtUiR

The photo clearly evoked a shared feeling of deep sadness and empathy for one's own parents or grandparents, and as such, papaw's sad face has reachedĀ full-blown meme status. As is custom, "papaw" hasĀ produced some creative responses. Here are some papaw tweets:

In an interesting twist, papaw's other grandchildren might beā€¦less than upstanding citizens:

But whatever their views may be, at least papaw got one cousin to come eat burgers:
