We first saw the 'Bad Girl' poster, and then there was the 'Ideal Boy' poster. But, if you thought parody on retro Indian Book Depot posters that were pinned up in classrooms decades ago, depicting everything from vegetables and numbers to good habits has ended, here's a surprise. It's hasn't.
On Twitter today, a poster depicting an 'Adarsh Liberal' has gone viral.
#AdarshLiberal is the top trend on Twitter now and at the time of writing this; there are nearly 30 k tweets around it.
So, who according to the poster is an Adarsh Liberal? "Someone who goes on an expensive holiday to discuss and understand poverty," and while he "supports PETA", he "eats chicken and beef."
Soon after the poster was tweeted out by a new Twitter handle called @AdarshLiberal, Twitter was flooded with hilarious takes on 'Liberals'.

Why did the #adarshliberal cross the road? Because there was a huge Govt grant waiting on the other side.- IndiaSpeaks (@IndiaSpeaksPR) March 10, 2015
If social media is taking a dig at the 'liberals', you don't expect them to not have a comeback. Liberals have now made a chart of their own and called it the Adarsh Bhakt.
