#iGetRealMadWhen Trending Topic, Explained

The hottest trending topic on twitter right now is #iGetRealMadWhen, it has been at the top of the TT lists all day. What does this hashtag mean and where does it come from?

There's not much mystery to this one, it's one of those classic trending topic joke setups where someone puts a setup line out there, and everyone takes their best shot at adding their own punchline.

As is often the case, twitter's own Lord Voldemort had the most popular entry, with "#Igetrealmadwhen people say I'm conceited. I'm sorry that people are so jealous of me... but I can't help it that I'm so popular."

Others are using it to vent whatever's on their mind, whether they are mad about employment and looking for a job, real estate, needing a divorce lawyer, trouble in their relationships or just being mad at everybody. That's what the internet is for after all, finding random people to get mad at!
