“Synonym rolls…just like grammar used to make”

"Cinnamon rolls” have been jokingly referred to as “synonym rolls” since at least the 1990s. “Made some synonym rolls” was a popular tweet on July 9, 2014.

“Synonym rolls...just like grammar used to make” (a pun version of “cinnamon rolls...just like grandma used to make") was cited on Twitter on September 15, 2014 and quickly went viral. The joke expression was made into a popular GIF.

About
Synonym Rolls is a misspelling of “cinnamon rolls” that first appeared in a tweet describing a photograph of baked cinnamon-flavored pastries, which became widely mocked on Twitter and Tumblr upon its spread in August 2014., in a similar vein to parodies of the phrases “chicken nuggers” and “commit sudoku”.

On the same day, Tumblr user drinksallroundcunt highlighted @IAmDeionte’s tweet. On September 16th, Tumblr user gonzozeppeli reblogged a screenshot of the tweet with the caption “Just like grammar used to make,” gathering upwards of 210,000 notes in the next 2 weeks.
