I've seriously had it up to here with images that crudely draw over the custom text of a previous meme and put their own text in a different font.

Edit the original, textless image, you absolute numbcunts!

Much like Deep Frying, I think the intent is that a degradation of technical quality makes it somehow more of a meme.

When your image has been watermarked so many times and suffers so many artifacts you can no longer tell what it is, that's peak spicy memedom.
