About

Le Monke is a photoshopped photograph of an obese orangutan with a confused face that became popular source material for shitposting on various imageboards, forums and other online communities in 2016. In 2019, a Le Monke video based on the "Uh Oh Stinky Poop" copypasta saw a surge in popularity.

The earliest known use of the image with the words "le monke" can be found in a thread started by an anonymous user on 4chan's [s4s] board on January 21st, 2016 (shown below, left).[5]

On May 28th, Redditor Theniallmc created a subreddit community dedicated to the curation of le monke memes at /r/lemonke.[6] On June 2nd, the Facebook page posted an image[4] featuring close-up images of four bearded mouths, including one cropped from the image of le monke, which gained more than 1,100 likes in less than 48 hours (shown below).

What is up with the last few months and meme quality? With Dat Boi, Cave Spongbob and now this, memes are coming and going faster than ever. If this keeps up, in a few more months we'll eventually reach the meme singularity, where memes are born and killed so fast that all things are simultaneously a meme and not a meme at the same time.
