This thread is long overdue for me as I don’t keep track of trends and I’m sure I’m not the only one who occasionally gets confuzzled by random new memes or e-colloquialisms randomly popping up.
So I’ve made a thread where people can safely ask the meaning or origin of random memes, past and current. For example:
Why My Little Ponies? What fostered this obsession for these characters?
What’s the origin of the trollface and its cousins?
I HAZ A… [Insert Random Cat With Costume Here] ?
I know 4chan is responsible for a good 99% of these memes, but since I’ll never venture there I’d rather compile the vast number of yearly memes so my fellow SRKers can at least keep up without much mental investment.
