"Memes in Helvetica"

I’ve been seeing this spread a fair amount. Anyone think it’s gotten to the point where it’s a meme in itself?

Any sauce? Pictures, links, anything?

Sorry, a Google search brings up “About 117,000 results”.

Introduced here: http://shaneblog.com/post/699509690

I’m not sure whether others have picked up on this and created derivatives, or if all these sites are just linking back to this Shane guy. I’m looking into it.

Darnit, I thought with all the search results, there must be derivatives, but it looks like it all might link back to the same guy, which would make it (somewhat) viral, but not quite meme-worthy.

Yea, that must have been an odd Google bug.

Daily what
WTF? Daily News (repost of Buzzfeed)
Moar Tumblr
Even Moar Tumblr

High Definite says its, “An ongoing project to explain internet memes using typography.”

But anyway. Hmm. It’s notable IMO (with all the reposting). But maybe not entry worthy.

Also- maybe I haven’t been looking enough, but the results are worse and worse as I go through the google pages.

It doesn’t seem like it’s caught on with anyone. But that sure is interesting.
