Should the KYM Goat/ Yotsunoha Legs have an article yet?

Recently, I’ve seen lots of that goat on the KYM image gallery (you know the one. If not, lurk moar).
The question is, should it be classified as a meme yet? I’m a bit on the fence. It seems to be fairly popular on the galleries, but not the rest of the internet. Lots of the ones I have seen are fairly funny. Maybe it could be a submeme in Hentai Quotes. Ideas anyone?

Currently it’s still just a KYM inside joke based on something that started on /v/. Let’s see if it has staying power first, and how it manages to spread both through KYM and to other sites.

I’m not saying stuff like “too forced” or “can’t because started on KYM”, just that it still lacks some features that make it a meme.

I don’t really think so.. It has been a little gag on /v/ board and now on kym. But no.

Yeah. I do agree. Sadly, something funny doesn’t make it a meme. I’ve heard this has happened before, but I am still but a newfag. Therefore I do not know these things.

Alright, I’ve come up to a conclusion that this is not a good idea yet. I think we can wait. We should leave this thread for now, wait a couple of weeks. If it’s there all over the internet, we’ll rethink. For now… Nah.

I think if you make an entry now, it’ll end up like Super-Robo Jesus; a popular “meme” among us, but totally unrecognizable by anyone else. Tl;dr: Deadpool but still popular.

If you know it’ll get deadpooled then you shouldn’t make an entry, simple as that. It doesn’t matter if it’s a KYM in-joke; it’s not worth making an article. SRJ is still in existence as a page because it has that “classic” factor to it and it’s used as an example of the exact opposite thing to do when making an article. I can assure you this really forced attempt to make a KYM inside joke will not have that kind of staying power.
