Skyrim Skill Tree refers to photoshopped reaction images in which a headline about a person doing something is paired with a screenshot of a corresponding skill from the leveling-up system on Skyrim, demonstrating that person's proficiency in said skill. For example, "Speech: 110" would be paired with an image of Bill Clinton saying he did not have sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky, showing his proficiency at lying convincingly.
In Skyrim , when a player has enough experience points, they can level up by entering a skill tree system, wherein they spend their experience points on improving a certain skill. On June 18th, 2017, /r/dankmemes user Autistic_Spinning posted the first template, in which a video of an escaped prisoner convincing a police officer he was out jogging is paired with "Speech: 100" (shown below). The post gained over 21,300 points.
This was the first of dozens of posts on the subreddit using the format. Some other popular examples include Bill Clinton's "I Did Not Have Sexual Relations With That Woman" quote that gained over 21,100 points (shown below, left) and a headline about a teen dying from a "60 minute masturbation challenge" that gained over 3,900 points (shown below, right).
Another popular strand of jokes involves Caitlyn Jenner's Gender Transition being paired with "Alteration: 100" (examples shown below). The popularity of the jokes was covered by The Daily Dot on the 19th.
