But Go Off I Guess refers to a snowclone that grew popular on Tumblr in March of 2018 with the format "OP did (X), but go off I guess." The snowclone parodies a type of call-out post on the site in which a user will point out flaws with a particular poster or person that other people are enjoying and end their post sarcastically with "but go off I guess," a phrase made to feel others bad for enjoying the post or person. The snowclones tend to include fantastical references to pop culture or mythology.


The snowclone is a parody of a type of post popularly used on Tumblr and Twitter in which a person will point out flaws with a popular thing, then end their post with "but go off I guess," essentially sarcastically saying "whatever makes you happy" while voicing their clear distaste for the topic (examples shown below).

Y'all are pushing your favs away just to be edgy and get likes but go off I guess 6:32 PM-19 Mar 2018 Denny Hamlin@dennyha... 18m v What a comeback for our @FedEx team. We gave ourselves a shot to win on the final restart and lost the coin flip. Really happy for @austindillon3 and team. And for anyone looking for a reason to hate, the 43 came down on ME and cut my tire at the line which is why we wrecked 100 t49 272 penske no one was looking but go off I guess?? no one c
