Allow Us To Introduce Ourselves refers to an image macro featuring a screen capture from the American animated television series VeggieTales. The image, which features three anthropomorphic scallions saying the phrase, has been used as the punchline to various jokes.

On July 21st, 1998, the VeggieTales episode "Madame Blueberry" aired. In the episode, three salesman known as the Scallions attempt to manipulate the character Madame Blueberry with a song, which begins "allow us to introduce ourselves."[1]

The following year, Memedroid[2] user RexRapt0r posted an image macro of the Scallions saying "Allow us to introduce ourselves" that jokes about the stereotype of Indian men approaching young women online. They captioned the image, "40 year old indian men after spotting a 14 year old Instagram model." The post (shown below, right) received more than 1,100 votes (83% upvoted).
