Updawg?

Isn’t this just in the same vein of other cruel in-real-life jokes?

Like “Psyche” and “Guess what? Chicken Butt!” ?

Or am I missing something here…?

Where should we draw the line? It definitely started before the internet, but so did “I came.”

@Chris
I’d say that the majority of memetic expression has to be on the internet to be a confirmed meme.
With I Came, it started IRL, but it’s mostly on the internet. As for Updawg, it is on the internet sometimes, but it’s found much more often irl.
