About

Me Too Thanks is a nonsensical phrase and copypasta that became the subject of parody around the rise of The Meme Renaissance of Me_IRL with various image macros using wordplay with the phrase.

Origin

The origins of the phrase trace back to an MS Paint image of two bees having a joke conversation revolving around the fact that they were bees posted by Tumblr user Exeggutor on December 23, 2013. [5]
On February 4, 2015 Reddit user FlyingFuckasaur posted this image on r/me_irl.[1] The image went on to receive over 2900 points, and "me too thanks" grew into a popular copypasta on me_irl.


there's 20 letters in the alphabet yeah? thats totally wrong theres 26 yeah i guess i forgot the letters thats funny b/c i am a bee me too thanks me too thanks 心'

Meaning

The phrase is often used as an expression of social awkwardness that is in tune with the theme of the /r/me_irl subreddit
On one /r/OutOfTheLoop post asking for the meaning behind the phrase, redditor /u/not_about_that_life explained:

It represents an awkward encounter like when you are having a conversation and someone asks you how are you but you thought they said that they were doing well so you respond with "me too thanks". Meirl made it a meme since they like awkward antisocial behavior and they'll upvote anything.[4]

Spread

On February 11th, 2015, Maddog2212 posted a thread on /r/OutOfTheLoop[2] asking why "me too thanks" was growing so popular. Another was submitted by silverben10[3] on July 8th, 2015. A third appeared on October 17th, 2016 by Emile666comics.[4] As the comments continued to appear, it grew into its own meme on the subreddit, as posts began to make jokes using variations of "me too thanks."
