CAUTION!

It’s a bit too IRL to be an internet meme, BUT a lot of the caution sign parodies ARE based on internet memes, so why the hell not.

When I saw your name on the last posting list for this thread, I could tell already that you would be posting in regards to Utsuho.

Anyway, I’d say that this is a meme, but with all respects, not an internet meme, it’s too IRL, pretty old, and not especially known for being something that was radically influenced by the internet as a means of communication.

There are similar signs I think, like this:

A more general entry to include all of these would work if we don’t already have one.

I can see this work out actually. “Too IRL” is not a reason with this, as the results of these creations are shared online. You don’t call Hentai Woody a “too IRL” meme because the pics are made IRL, same with other memes and photo fads.

So yes, I say give it a go. I would change the name to “Caution Signs” though, to avoid confusion.

Hentai Woody is here because it is dependent on the internet and the internet as a medium has a considerable effect on the way it has grown.

Besides, people have been doing shit like this for years.
