This funny joke was made funnier by people who just couldn’t get it
Over to @kbnoswag – probably not his real name – on Twitter.
My step dad told me it was pointless to apply to med school bc I was “too stupid to be a doctor”
8 years later and one of us is an unemployed loser with a drinking problem and the other is making six figures and going to Hawaii this weekend to renew his wedding vows with my mom

You get employed losers too you know.
Dude… not cool marrying your mom man. Ever watched that movie "Wrong Turn"? Try one of your friend's moms… and go to Florida.

The one making six figures is his step dad.
