Featured Episode


Alien-posting, also known as Alienposting, Green Alien-posting or Green Alien Animals, refers to edited and Photoshopped images of animals and meme characters made to look like green aliens with antennas who speak an incoherent language. The trend started in late 2022 when the alien dog Geeble was created, being an edited version of the Handheld Pupper photo. Then, Gnarp Gnarp surfaced: a green alien cat. Both images led to more animal photos being crudely-edited, trending on TikTok, Twitter, Instagram and iFunny in early 2023. Many of the green alien animals were paired with captions and text that read like an alien language, including many "eep" and "orp" sounds like "zeep" and "glorp," made to be nonsensical, using chaotic characters and foreign letters. The trend also led to the rise in Pirate-posting and pirate memes.



On November 1st, 2022, Twitter[1] user @The_ExtraRare posted a photo of a French bulldog puppy being held in a person's hand, earning over 260 likes in five months (shown below, left). It is currently unknown where the original image was uploaded. Soon after the tweet was uploaded, on November 1st, Twitter[2] user @valeriehell1 replied with an edited version of the dog that tinted him green and added antennas, making him look like an alien. The tweet gained over 25 likes in five months (shown below, right).

About a month later, on December 22nd, 2022, Twitter[3] user @redshibe_ tweeted the edited photo and named him Geeble, gaining roughly 6,100 likes in four months (shown below).

Pirate-posting, also known as Pirateposting or Pirate Posting, refers to a genre of memes that add pirate words and phrases to pre-existing, exploitable meme templates, recaptioning the text with pirate slang such as "landlubber," "seas," "ahoy," "scurvy," "scallywag," "plunder" "booty" and "matey," among others. The memes also inserted pirate imagery like hats, skulls and eyepatches. Memes similar to pirate-posting were posted online as early as 2020, however, the trend became more notable on Instagram in 2022, and a year later, went even more viral on Twitter in early 2023, predominantly due to the gimmick account on Twitter @pirate_posting.

Venus Slime Fields

Venus Slime Fields refers to a series of parody memes imagining the struggles of working at slime fields on Venus. The memes parody social media posts by right wing influencers which glamorize and praise blue collar work, especially the frequently shared Muddy Workers Operating Machinery video. The meme is closely related to the Zeep Glorp trend, from which it borrows "alien" lingo.
