Brrr, also referred to as X go brrr is a series of image macros, derived from a subcategory of Wojak comics.
The “brrr” image macros usually present a complex problem, which is then solved by a ridiculously simple solution.
While sometimes the comics may refer to the fact that problems may often be overcame by an unelaborate solution, at other times it is used to ridicule people who attempt to solve these hardships through stupendously simple measures.
