So You Want To Be A Pirate is a British-American animated short and the last place you'd expect to get a dank meme. Still, that's where this originated from. Technically, the original quote is not "Well yes, but actually no," but meme culture makes the rules. This meme is perfect for expressing technicalities that require yes and no answers. Any time you want to answer a question with, "well yes, but actually no," add your text to this meme template first!
