Am I a Joke To You?
The “Am I a joke to you?” was a popular reaction image of a stern-looking man with a funny caption “am I a joke to you?”

Basically, the screenshot contains an image of a popular character known as Mziwoxolo ‘Tau’ Mogale which was played by actor Rapulana Seiphemo. The still image was gotten from an episode of the South African soap opera Generations the Legacy.
This meme is one perfect way to react to someone or a situation that makes you feel like you are not important. That’s why someone else captioned the tweet “Jimmy Tau to Sizakele Manonga which was right after she dumped him for Bandile”

When this meme was posted in January, it got a lot of rewets, some people also sampled it with @Simphiwe being the first to do that.

On the 15th of October, 2018, A Redditor user twakle14 posted the image and he captioned it “me: opens an incognito tab for the 5th time within 1 hour, my PP:”
