Where Did The 'Oooooo You Like Boys Ur A Boykisser' Meme Come From?
On June 22nd, 2022, an artist on Twitter named @Mauzymice shared a GIF of an original character talking to (and hypnotizing) the viewer. Some very much enjoyed it, sharing it to other places like Reddit and adding a top caption to it.
Sometime in early 2023, a currently unknown meme creator added the notorious "boykisser" top caption to @Mauzymice's GIF, creating something that would soon be shared on Discord. Thereafter, many of the artist's GIFs became memes, used similarly to other trends like the Homophobic Dog and "I know what you are".
