“Relationships are like algebra. You look at your X and wonder Y”

A popular algebra joke has been printed on T-shirts and ecards:

“Relationships are a lot like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y?”

“This relationship shit is like Algebra, it may take a while to find the answers and don’t put your X’s in the wrong place” was cited on Twitter on December 8, 2010. “If only life were like Algebra.  You could replace all your x’s without asking y” was cited on Twitter on July 22, 2011.

The joke went viral in 2012. “Relationships are like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y?” was cited on Twitter on April 26, 2012.
