The El Paso urge is strong right, well it is, at least, according to Twitter.

If you've noticed on social media the phrase "the urge to..." and are confused, allow me to explain.

According to "Know Your Meme", it all began with the phrase "the feminine urge to..." which referred to a concept to ironically describe female tendencies and traits. Apparently the phrase began in 2009, but it really gained traction in April of 2021, and it morphed into other phrases like "the masculine urge" or, as El Paso Twitter has discovered: "The El Paso Urge".

El Paso Twitter has caught on to the phrase and have revealed their favorites like:

If I had to choose and El Paso urge, it actually be to fight that El Paso urge to take pictures at San Jacinto Plaza during Winterfest!  LOOK AT THOSE LINES!
