Anime Memes Replaced With Breaking Bad / Mikeposting
Anime Memes Replaced With Breaking Bad refers to a series of memes that parody cringeworthy and unfunny anime memes by replacing one or several panels with images of characters from the television series Breaking Bad and its spin-off series Better Call Saul. Implementing elements from both ironic Breaking Bad Memes and Staring Animals memes, the format was popularized in late March 2022. The versions in which panels are replaced with Mike Ehrmantraut are known as Mikeposting, with Kid Named Finger being a subformat of that.
Kid Named Finger
Kid Named Finger is a parody meme format that combines elements of the ironic Breaking Bad trend Mikeposting with the Kid Named X meme format and involves referring to character Mike Ehrmantraut as "kid named finger" or "finger." The parody format gained initial popularity in the /r/okbuddychicanery subreddit in early April 2022 before spreading further in mid-May.
