I'd Like to See North Korea is a line from a series of image macros in which people post pictures of a fictional or humorous army with the caption a variation on the catchphrase "I'd like to see North Korea try," implying that the fictional army is more powerful than North Korea's.
The earliest known instance of this meme occurred on July 28th, 2016. Twitter user @LILDOOBIESKIGOD posted a picture of an uncooked, raw chicken sitting upright. They captioned the tweet (shown below), "I'd like to see North Korea try with this on our side 😈"
Several days later, on July 29th, Twitter user @___Atheism___ posted a variation with several images of American soldiers as well as a still from the animated film Bee Movie (shown below, left). On August 5th, Twitter user @_absoluteweeb_ posted a variation on the meme, changing the image to a still of the bees from Bee Movie swarming (shown below, right).
On September 27th, the Facebook meme account memeb0t posted a variation featuring Clone Troopers from the Star Wars prequel films. The post (shown below) received more than 1,200 reactions and 330 shares.
11 months later, on August 16th, Redditor Theboss12312 posted a fake tweet by U.S. President Donald Trump that says, "I'd like to see North Korea fight our highly trained army." The tweet sits above a picture of YouTuber Filthy Frank holding a pair of guns. The post (shown below) received more than 20,000 points (89% upvoted) and 190 comments.
