Go Brrr

What does Go Brrr mean?

Fixing a problem

The phrase “Go Brrr” is often used to indicate an action or machine that is seen as an easy fix for a complex issue. It first showed up in memes featuring the A-10 Warthog, a military aircraft known for its iconic “brrrt” sound when firing its guns to “fix” problems. The saying got even more popular with the 2020 Money Printer Go Brrr meme, a funny take on the U.S. Federal Reserve’s strategy of increasing the money supply to tackle economic struggles caused by the pandemic.

After that, many other “go brrr” memes started to appear on the internet, and people began using the term in online discussions and social media posts to suggest straightforward solutions to problems. Sometimes, “go brrr” is used in a very direct way, highlighting how uncomplicated the solution to a problem can be. But often, it’s used more sarcastically to suggest that what looks like an easy solution might not work out as planned or could lead to unexpected issues.

Example for using ‘Go Brrr’ in a conversation

Hey, can you help me with this math problem?

Sure, what’s up?

So, I have this equation and I’m stuck. I don’t know how to solve it.

No worries, let’s break it down. What’s the equation?

It’s 3x + 5 = 20.

Oh, that’s an easy one. We just need to isolate x. First, subtract 5 from both sides.

Got it, so it becomes 3x = 15.

Exactly! Now, divide both sides by 3 to solve for x.

Oh wow, it’s x = 5. That was easier than I thought!

See, sometimes math problems just go brrr. You got this!
