Being Happy vs. Fitting Into Society or Ser Feliz vs. Encajar En La Sociedad in Spanish, is an exploitable meme format that uses two images to compare being happy to fitting into society, the former image being something joyful and exuberant and the latter image being something more simple and casual. The format was popularized among Spanish web users in 2022, beginning with comparisons between fun and casual backpacks. It became increasingly popular among English web users over the following years.
