I need to look for evidence but I feel fairly certain that the first time I saw this was on a forum with the exact story that kap77 mentions. Someone says ‘this looks photoshopped’ regarding an obviously photoshopped image. Suddenly a new sig is born.

@chrismenning: My personal take on ‘fake’ or ‘inauthentic’ stems from the fact that every year, MTV attempts to engineer ‘buzz’ around its VMA event by manufacturing a perceived outrage. The Britney-Madonna ‘lesbian’ kiss. Sasha Baron Cohen in a harness, wearing a thong, being lowered onto Eminem’s face. This year it was ‘Kanye Interrupts’. I’ve heard some people say that even though this was engineered, that doesn’t matter since the activity (image macros, YT mashups, etc) are ‘real.’ Personally, I...

If ‘Suggest Changes’ sent a PM to the author of the entry, would you as an author feel responsible for researching the suggestion and editing your own entry?
We got the O RLY shirts in.
@coopersmith look for the new ‘sub-memes’ section under Lolcats: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/lolcats It’s one of the major features of MemeDB release 1.5.
Now that we have parents for meme entries, we can start to sort out Brad’s list some more. I’d love to hear peoples’ thoughts on grouping and sorting out a hierarchy for some of these tags. We can call it the Internet Menome Project. When all is said and done, there will be ice cream and delicious cake.
I agree with Blubber. Camaro Leonard needs a border check. It would help with a lot of the dupes.
Nice searching, Chris. Some alternate names for Basement Horse: Floor Horse and WTF Horse. If I remember correctly, ‘WTF Horse’ came about as a result of the ‘Amber Amputee’ image (January 2009) but that seems to just be by people who didn’t get the Ceiling Cat reference. Not sure about Floor Horse. Best link I can come up with is an image gallery from November 2008. I feel like I’ve seen other (failed) Ceiling Cat variations out there but can’t recall anything without spending hours in the 4chan archive.
The store just opened and Jamie’s already wearing his.
I think the early LonelyGirl15 phenomenon is totally worth consideration as a meme and is definitely worth a discussion. It started off small, grew through viral spread, and all. Fred just seems ‘popular’ to me.
Developers. ps: I’m going to go make an entry for this now.
Good call. We’re working on an entry for Lazy Sunday that’ll include “I’m on a boat.” Related: I almost wish we could say something about auto-tune, but I’m pretty certain it is neither memeworthy nor a phenomenon. It is just funny.

I’ve been thinking about ‘Peanut Butter Jelly Time’ for a few weeks now. That one’s going to be special. :-)
