Manzieling is a photoshop meme based on an exploitable cut out image of Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel laying down on his back with his arms crossed over his chest during the game against the Buffalo Bills in November 2014.


On November 30th, 2014, the Cleveland Browns quarterback laid motionless on the field after losing the ball due to a failed snap during the team's regular season match against the Buffalo Bills (shown below, left). That day, Twitter user Robby Kalland[1] posted a photoshopped image of Manziel laying on the ground with several other professional athletes (shown below, right).

That evening, the novelty Twitter account @CockyWesWelker[6] tweeted several photos of people mimicking Manziel's pose with the hashtag "#Manzieling"[5] (shown below, left). Many Twitter users subsequently posted photoshopped images of Manziel laying on the ground in other base pictures with the "#Manzieling" hashtag. On December 1st, Redditor violentrob11 posted an edited photo of former professional boxer Muhammad Ali standing over Manziel in a boxing ring to the /r/buffalobills[4] subreddit (shown below, right).

Do people talk shit? They usually just post pictures of Don saying "You just been meme'd on" or such like this one

I think at this point, these pictures themselves have become a meme, Don should make an article about it, it'd be the greatest inception shit ever.
