Meme Man refers to a grey 3D rendering of a human head which functions as the mascot for the Facebook page "Special meme fresh." The head is frequently used in absurd edits, surreal memes and shitposting.

According to a post by Special meme fresh's on the Know Your Meme forums,[1] the 3D model of the head originates from "a wonky attempt at a human head posted on 4chan’s 3DCG board long ago." The image was later adapted to be their profile mascot, first appearing in their profile photo.[2]

A post to Tumblr of the character photoshopped to be looking at the word meme was posted on November 3rd, 2015. The post has gained over 40 thousand notes.[4]

Surreal Memes

Surreal Memes are a sub-genre of Ironic Memes that are artistically bizarre in appearance and whose humor derives from their absurd style. Though the difference between Surreal Memes and Deep Fried Memes and Dank Memes is subtle, certain qualities and characters, such as Layers of Irony, Meme Man, Mr. Orange, and a minimalist style, are frequent markers of a Surreal Meme.

Meme Man Wurds

Meme Man Wurds, also known as Stonks Edits, refer to reaction images featuring Meme Man in which the character is depicted as being unjustifiably proud of the action described above him. The meme will feature intentionally misspelled words related to his activity. The trend began with the 2019 rise of Stonks and has gone on to spawn many variants, including Shef, Tehc and Helth.
