Another day another meme, my friends.

The internet never takes an off day and is a fickle beast when it comes to its memes. Today’s meme is an image of a mischievous looking duck that looks like it knows something you don’t. The origin of said image is already lost to history, of course, but needless to say the internet has had a great time with it over the past couple of days.

According to the meme lifecycle this meme will be dead in 20 minutes and a new meme will rise. What will it be? Angry Looking Pug? Side Eye Rabbit? Me? Only time will tell…

Find the Cat

Somewhere in the photo below is a cat. I couldn’t find it, I needed someone to point it out (shame!) I don’t want to tell you how long I stared for because it’s embarrassing. What I will tell you is that there is definitely a cat.

Take a look. If you see it right away, congratulate yourself and show it to someone else. If they don’t see it immediately, they’ll be like me, staring aimlessly wondering if it’s a prank.

If you lose patience, scroll to the bottom of the post to see where the cat is. Good luck!

Puppy or Bagel? Chihuahua or Muffin? Shiba or Marshmallow? (8 photos)

Is this a puppy or bagel? The question was posed by Karen Zack (@teenybiscuit) on Twitter and was accompanied by a gallery of photos that humorously brought attention to the striking similarities.

The tweet went viral and Karen has since followed up her now Internet famous image with more comparisons between various dog breeds and foods. She has even added a few new animals to the mix like birds and shrews.

The Internet is having a field day with these and her images have garnered her a ton of media attention. For more fun and quirkiness from Karen, check her out at the links below.

Cats aren’t the only ones freaked out by cucumbers

A scientist once told me that trying to get researchers to collaborate is like herding cats. According to a new video, cats and scientists may have more in common than you might think.

Videos of cats freaking out over cucumbers have been a meme on the web for some time. But last week, the meme became quite popular and many cat behaviorists piped up to warn pet owners not to try to scare cats with fruits and vegetables, because its really rather mean.

And, if you live with a scientist, you should probably heed the same advice. Those cucumbers are pretty startling.

How a head-banging purple bird took over the internet

The popular “Trash Dove” currently flooding Facebook.

A purple, head-banging bird is everywhere now. It’s on Facebook, YouTube, in the comments on New York Times stories and even in your texts. The popular pigeon has become a meme monster.

The bird is the creation of illustrator and visual development artist Syd Weiler who unleashed the fowl upon the world after some unexpected inspiration.

Weiler said she got the idea while visiting Minneapolis. “I was sitting by a pond … and there were just pigeons everywhere,” she said. “I had never thought about pigeons before. They’re funny little birds. They have really shiny, colorful, almost rainbow-y feathers, but then they bob around and waddle and beg for food. They’re like doves but they eat trash.”

She made the images of the bird, available on iOS 10, last year, creating them digitally based on her original drawings. She even streamed their creation live on Twitch.TV, where she’s a “full-time creative streamer,” creating art in front of viewers daily which, Weiler said, is “like monetizing a YouTube channel.”

Then at the end of January, the stickers hit Facebook, fueling their popularity, especially on the other side of the world.

It seems that ground zero for Trash Dove’s explosion, according to Know Your Meme, was its appearance in an animated video produced in Thailand which featured the head-banging Trash Dove dancing next to an animated cat which takes an unexpected and, ahem, adult turn.

Weiler was taken by surprise: “I woke up… and everyone was tagging me and sending me these Thai news articles that I couldn’t read but had my picture on them.”

As for the above video, Weiler says, “I thought it was really funny. At that point, there’s not much I can do about it but laugh.”

The stickers have made their mark across Facebook, even, as noted by The Verge, invading Facebook comment sections of sites like Vox and The New York Times.

The comments section on a recent post by Weiler shows that even the creator can’t escape the monster meme.

Lest there was any question as to whether the meme has taken on a life of its own, consider that it’s allegedly been co-opted by the alt-right, according to users on a Reddit thread and a Medium post.

Weiler, though, is focusing on the joy her creation brings to fans, rather than the more unsavory turns.

“[The trash doves] were made to make people laugh and make people happy,” she says. “I’m really glad people like them. I’m really glad they make people smile and seeing the fan art and all the nice comments has been really, really nice.”
