Ours is not to ask why, only to enjoy. That's pretty much all you can say when it comes to bizarre memes like one that bubbled up on Twitter on Tuesday: #MakeASongClean. EW.com noted that the hash started trending after some enterprising users wondered what some popular song titles might look like if you cleaned them up a bit?
