OH THE HUGE MANATEE! is based off of a comment by Herbert Morrison during the crash of the Hindenburg, which became an idiom ‘used in a satirical way to ridicule, diminish and trivialize emotional displays the speaker deems overly sentimental.’

Much later, after the internets was invented, an image of the crash was digitized, and later photoshopped to replace the blimp of doom with an aquatic mammal, the manatee, and provided a humorous caption. Thus, the huge manatee was born, and placed on t-shirts everywhere. It’s even spawned it’s own game.

A notable aspect of this meme is that it is of of the few that are nicely photoshopped.
