Memes and trends on the Internet appear to be a product of the digital age, created out of randomness and doomed to quickly die out once we soon tire of them. In reality, many have origins dating back hundreds of years. All we’ve done is replicate the fads of our forefathers, only this time, we have the benefit of the Internet to make them spread faster and on a wider scale.


Photographing felines in ridiculous outfits and placing even more ridiculous captions on said pictures goes back to Victorian times, to the studios of Harry Pointer and Harry Frees. These photographers separately took photos of cats and other animals in human-like poses and sold them for postcards and children’s books. It was hard work, as the photographers had to make do with primitive equipment while also keeping the live animals still long enough for the perfect pose.

One of their contemporaries, taxidermist Walter Potter, had no such difficulties. During his career, Potter mounted countless dead small animals , including rats, cats, and rabbits in poses just like miniature humans.

The Internet can’t stop immortalizing Anthony Scaramucci’s ten days as White House communications chief in the form of pop culture memes.

It was just last week that the former hedge fund executive nicknamed “ The Mooch” accepted a role within President Donald Trump’s administration. But on Monday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement that Scaramucci would be leaving his role in order to “give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team.”

Scaramucci’s tenure may have been short lived, but it was long enough for the internet to have a bit of movie-making fun, including but not limited to Kate Hudson’s and Matthew McConaughey’s 2003 rom-com, How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days a film about a woman’s effort to prove that common dating faux pas can deter any man in a quick 10 days.

Legobane was surprised to find herself the subject of a Twitter meme that compared two women — one thin, and the other, Legobane, curvy. The caption reads: “Girls that I like vs Girls that like me.”

She told BuzzFeed that she heard about the meme after someone tagged her in it, and decided the guy who made it, Leyton Mokgerepi, “had to know his place.”

Her simple, four-word reply — “I don’t like you” — instantly went viral, with almost a quarter million retweets and over 755,000 likes. Ariana Grande , Nicki Minaj and director Ava Duvernay even liked Legobane’s tweet.
