Cheesed To Meet You refers to a pun on the phrase "pleased to meet you" accompanied by an illustration of Pepe the Frog as a mouse. The pun paired with the Pepe Mouse became popular on various websites in August and September 2020.


The first known appearance of the phrase "cheesed to meet you" paired with the Pepe Mouse appeared on August 1st, 2019 in a reply to a thread with an Apu Apustaja cat on the 4chan board /tv/. [1] On August 3rd, a near-identical thread was posted on /tv/ with an anonymous user replying "Uhm, cheesed to meet you?" (shown below).[2]

The Pepe Mouse image (shown below) can be traced[3][4] to a digital trading card archive/marketplace known as the Rare Pepe Directory. The artwork, titled "SMALLRATPEPE", was released[5] on February 14th, 2018. An early user of the image was Twitch streamer RatIRL, who began using the Pepe Mouse in his YouTube thumbnails on July 5th, 2019.[6] As of July 30th, 2021, a variant of the Pepe Mouse is the icon for his Discord server.[7]


"Uhm, cheesed to meet you?" and the Pepe Mouse did not receive attention until August 2020. Various tweets referencing the /tv/ post were made in early August,[8] but the earliest found screenshot of the reply was not posted until August 10th on Twitter by user @woodsyowle (shown below).[9] The post gained over 150 likes. An August 17th Tumblr repost of the screenshot with the caption "obsessed obsessed obsessed obsessed to death with this image" by user themysteriousmurasamecastle received over 22,000 notes in three weeks.[10] The screenshot was reposted on Twitter by @GaoRush the next day and garnered over 8,000 likes in a similar period.[11]
