Garlic Bread

Has anyone else seen the pervasiveness of garlic bread around the internet today? I don’t know what it is yet, but this FB page called Welcome to the Internet has had every top comment on everything they’ve posted today be about garlic bread. Usually the stuff comes directly from the chanz or reddit, so I thought maybe it might have come from there, but I haven’t been on either lately nor would I like to visit either.

Edit: Was it this?

Or maybe this:

Double Edit: Pretty sure it was the grandma from this reddit page. I’ll wait and see if anything else happens with it tomorrow. Probably just temporary spam.

Actually, The admin posted that picture with the grandmother saying “Garlic Bread” and it caught on and is now a recurring joke for that page. Funny thing is the joke on started 15 hours ago.

I wasn’t sure if it was localized or not since I know he pretty much gets all his content from reddit. A quick google gave me the link from where he got that picture which looks like it was upvoted pretty good, but it also turned up that video. Looks like it’s already dying out though.

I’m usually not one to take credit for things. However… I was the first post and am the creator of the DOGE GARLIC BREAD picture. Never expected it to spread ha ha.

Well, Meme Research threads are for verification on things and, ya know, research. All the posts arguing about that Facebook page stealing content have been deleted because they just aren’t productive.

Google shows there are now hundreds of memes being created with the catch-phrase “GARLIC BREAD”: https://www.google.com/search?q=garlic+bread+meme&tbm=isch

Yeah so the source of the image and what not, for research purpose, is not important. By just stealing it from someone else without credit

Who was arguing about them stealing content? I was asking if this was a local meme or a interwebz meme. Seems to be localized, but still a meme. All this thread was purposed for was the verification of the meme.

If you actually read the comments before mine, you would see that it was discussed without mindless bashing.

@The Stare Master
Like I said, I deleted those posts. It’s unrelated to you, and what you’re saying is fine.

I can tell you are on board with this being an entry. Anyways garlic bread isn’t a official meme yet. Waiting for approval. Welcome to the Internet spoke a little to soon.

Check this out:

The album shows a simple comparison of the same post made by two different pages, both with over 2 million followers. Each page gets comments to their posts within seconds of the content being posted, and most of the times, those comments become top comments. We can count on this to have a sort of accurate timestamp on the posts. The pages are See More(https://www.facebook.com/seewaymore) and Welcome to the Internet(https://www.facebook.com/4funsociety).

That was point one. Point two is, Welcome to the Internet has known history to copy content exactly as is, down to the very description of the picture, from See more (among other pages, of course).

http://imgur.com/a/pLHVE#0

They copy anywhere from one to two-thirds of See more’s contents, and the admin of See more, Eugenio Croitoru (https://www.facebook.com/bestnicknameeverbros), acknowledges it (and hates the other dude).

All this to make two statements. 1, Welcome to the Internet is a giant asshole that has a fixation on See more (sort of a personal-ish angry fan thing going on here on my behalf), and 2. chances are Eugenio (See more) can be contacted to get the source of the image. He’s a nice guy like that.

Another thing, which got pointed out in the first few comments, is the reddit post (http://www.reddit.com/r/facepalm/comments/1p8qnt/garlic_bread/). Sadly there’s no specific timestamp on it other than the date. Even though I’m pretty sure that’s the legit source, asking Eugenio if that’s the source is probably the most sound thing to do.

@Original original original intent of thread: Atm it’s most definitely a local meme, but it’s spreading. It’s only like 30 hours old, so yea.

P.S. (Pl0x don’t delete me, I iz verry sad D: )

Garlic Bread became a real-world meme some years ago in Britain because it was one of comedian Peter Kay’s recurring gags, see the start of this clip:

There was merchandise and everything from t-shirts to mugs.

I don’t see purpose of this meme than just to spam it randomly, doubt it’s gonna stay.

@rann You mean like Desu, Arrow to the Knee, etc. Not all memes live forever, but should we not document the passing trends so that our ancestors can know just how f*cked up we were?

@Atraps I think she deserves -1 Internets. Obviously she can’t handle the responsibility.

we at kym don’t fucking blam people with examples when the thread isn’t even really about them. This is about garlic bread.

There were other pages such as Regular Green Link that posted the Image, and the top comments were Garlic Bread too.

He isn’t blaming anyone, he’s pointing out (with much personal bias) that see more’s page had actually posted the same originating picture an hour and 13 minutes before Welcome to the Internet did. I had no knowledge that Welcome to the Internet’s source was See More as virtually all of it’s content can be found on reddit.

Still, this doesn’t change the fact that the idea/meme spamming didn’t take off anywhere else except on Welcome to the Internet’s page. WttI gets the credit for the meme, although the article will need a source for the image since it spawned the meme so we do need to find where to credit for that.
Edit:Pretty sure the picture was posted to reddit first as the post is time stamped 05:19 UTC and FB time stamped See More’s post as 8:03 a.m. (I live in -6 UTC I’m pretty sure so that would make reddit first by almost 9 hours which would have given it time to rise to the front page of /r/facepalm.)

@Digoxin duly noted, but they only posted the image 14 hours ago. WttI posted over 2 days ago. Links to other pages that have had Garlic Bread infiltrate their comment sections would be helpful for the spread section.

I’m just saying that a less personal biased and a more straightforward answer would have been nice. I do get the point however, and blam wasn’t the best word to describe.
