Been seeing the likes of this on Facebook and other websites. I still don’t know what’s this meme called.

A meme was asked in another page but I didn’t find an answer. It’s pretty common. I tried to look for speechless guy meme, but it’s not. It’s a guy that lifts his finger in order to make some remark about a situation (the “exploitable” part of the meme), usually WTF material, and in the next panel, he lowers his finger, as if rendered speechless by the absurdity of the situation, or as if he ’d rather remain ignorant, or as if it clearly speaks for itself.

Okay, I only know it as “What my X thinks of Y”. It’s this meme where people ask someone they know to usually describe a show they don’t know of. Example, “What my dad thinks of Hetalia” or “What my grandma thinks of Walking Dead” or something along those lines. I feel like we probably have this entry but I’m just searching under the wrong name.

I think it can be a derivative of or related to “What People Think I Do / What I Really Do” and “How people view me after I say I’m X”

@Sophie
The first one is Soon, with the zooming in probably coming from Tenso
The second one looks more like an article on cats and their internet presence in general, rather than a meme.

@Jacobsomebody
There is a deadpooled article about that image. But it’s most likely just a reaction image, not a meme per se.

@leshracevil
Most likely just a (popular) reaction image too.

Here’s what I think is the original image (unsure about source).

I’ve seen some variations of this image with different characters before, unfortunately I don’t know where to find them. I figured we might already have an article on it, unless there aren’t enough examples to provide for it.

@SweetAndDelicious
Reverse searching the image gives Roll Over Cat
This brings up a few variations of the comic.
This thread in the meme research section calls it ‘come on’, and gives the source of the original comic. Though searching ‘come on meme’ on Google only brings up a rage comic character.
There doesn’t seem to be an entry on the comic and its variations here.

What is this one called? I see them in different variants.

The top one Iooks like Harry Potter crossed with Dolan
The bottom I think is also something with Dolan, but I’m not sure what.

Hm… never seen it before, but doing a Google reverse image search, it’s definitely something. Google reverse image search gives “рашка квадратный ватник” and says its Russian. There are quite a few variants, but seeing as I can’t read any of it, there’s not much I can say about it that isn’t just hoping Google translate is accurate. Seeing some of the variants, though, it seems to be political in natures, possibly mocking people who are pro-putin, but that’s just a guess. Looking through all the entries with “Russia” in them on the site doesn’t seen to get anything. We might want to think about adding a page for it due to the sheer number of variants. We’d need to have someone who can read it it though.

Edit: Doing a bit more looking and I keep getting back “Root Vatnik.” It seems that the term vatnik is considered an ethnic slur for Russians in the Ukraine, originally referring to Soviet era coats. Interpreting from this twitter post the term now seems to be ridiculing Russian nationalists, often affiliated with people who are very pro-Putin, but encompassing more than just that, such are pro-separatists in the Ukraine.

I don’t know if this would count here, but what would be a proper name for Lets Play clips made into animations (IE: Game Grumps animations, UberHaxorNova’s Animated Classics)

Hey,

I’m looking for the name of a 4-panel webcam reaction photo that some dude uploaded in response to a game being announced maybe last year… The dude is sitting at his computer, gets excited and then the last panel is a picture of him running out the door naked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What is the name of this and where did it originate? I’ve seen this almost exclusively on Facebook and Instagram but I’m sure it originated somewhere else. One of the people that made these goes by “Jahmall” but there are others involved. If it doesn’t have a name, I’m going with “Cartoon Rebuttals” or something like that. Please, I need to find more of these, they’re the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Extra thanks for finding the one with Johnny and Plank from Ed, Edd and Eddy. Saw that one but it was reported on Facebook before I could save it. Here’s just a few from my large collection of these.

It’s kind of like this, isn’t it? I think you’re talking about Dolan-style comics.

Is it a picture of an actual person or a drawn rage face of some sort? Is it generally used as a reaction or does it have a particular phrase associated with it?

Is there a name for the meme (or activity) when you see a pic of a girl and you freak out… commenting on a random background object?

ex: Selfie of someone seeking attention.
“Holy hell!!!! I have that same TV” (tv is in the background)

Anyone know the origin? Thanks.

Quick edit: I know it’s called “I hate this ringtone” or something, but I can’t seem to find the origin.

Alright
@ Tinpod: It’s Swag with what looks like Haraldur Jón Hannesson/Thin Hair Chin Man

@Hypercat-Z: Roleplay texts is a good name for it, but we don’t have a page for it. I don’t use a smartphone so I don’t know how you would make it outside of photoshop.

@BreakMeIn: I’ve never seen it, and KYM does not have a page on it, but doing a Google reverse image search, it seems to be popular. I wasn’t able to find a version without text though.

i really dont even know how to describe this meme, mostly just putting images that hold certain sarcastic similarities for a movie or a franchise. for example:


guardians of the galaxy (2014)
