Weekend Meme Roundup: Hey Shitass, Absolutely Losing It Over This Picture Of Baby, Water Monke, Cover Yourself In Oil

This is it everyone, the end of Spooktober is here. After this week, it will be a grudge match between Mariah Carey and Black Friday for control of the internet until New Year's. For this occasion, we have four glorious memes to shine a spotlight on over the past weekend. We have the IRL-centric Absolutely Losing It Over This Picture Of My Brother With His Baby, the made-for-TV Water Monke, the Minecraftian Hey, Shitass, and lastly, a throwback to a simpler time with Cover Yourself in Oil. Absolutely Losing It Over This Picture Of My Brother With His Baby Absolutely Losing It Over This Picture Of My Brother With His Baby is about a viral tweet and image depicting a man holding his baby up to a Walmart security camera. The meme quickly got picked up and transformed into putting various characters in the place of the man and his baby, most notably video game characters or others from pop culture. This format isn't entirely versatile, as it is restricted to just one character holding up another, but it is very reminiscent of Don't Talk To Me Or My Son Ever Again, which means there is a lot of potential for it to stick around a while. 0:15 > 0:15 "THERE ARE NO ACCIDENTS. - Master Oogway Organism Marine biology Adaptation Water Underwater" class=" kym-image image-auto-link" id="photo_1921504" title="no accidents" > Hey, Shitass Hey, Shitass is a small series of quick videos revolving around a Minecraft character named Shitass. This meme was first found on TikTok and from there it quickly expanded as people began to show this "shitass" character the various skills they know in-game. This meme is completely used in video form, which is good, as it shows a healthy amount of variety for both meme creators and websites in general. Videos take longer to get a good setup for and there can be problems during the execution, so a popular meme that is entirely composed of videos shows a strong, healthy creator pool. pic.twitter.com/5o0l0eF01O — Typickle 🐧 (@TypicklesF) October 18, 2020 [embedded content] [embedded content][embedded content] [embedded content] Cover Yourself in Oil Cover Yourself in Oil is a 2012 troll science throwback living in the modern time. The meme originated on 9GAG, which many would find an unusual place for a revival of troll science, and yet, here it is. The joke is that oil always floats on top of water, which is what makes grease fires so dangerous, and so by covering yourself in oil you should be able to float above water, including rain. Being a classic four-panel troll comic, new memes can be made by replacing various panels, as seen in some of the examples. Hopefully, this is not a quick flash in the pan, but a harbinger to something much more to come. Meme Insider is a Know Your Meme publication and the world's leading internet culture magazine.

'Moon's Wet': Discovery Of Lunar Water Recalls 'Moon's Haunted' Meme

Rumors of "big moon news" dropping soon ran rampant last week, and today we found out what it was: there is water on the surface of the moon.A pair of studies published in Nature Astronomy today confirmed the existence of "lunar water," which scientists had long theorized could enable astronauts to live on the moon for extended periods of time. One research team discovered water molecules in a sunny region of the moon, while another estimated that the tiny pockmarks on the moon could provide shelter for over 15,000 miles of ice. The discoveries were made by an infrared telescope called SOFIA, which is a telescope that flies high in the earth's atmosphere and observes the moon, where scientists discovered subtleties on the moon's surface that they believe are unambiguous signs of water. While the molecules alone are not enough to create water in liquid or ice forms, the theory is that the moon's craters could have ice in high concentrations, considering how cold those areas can get. While the news certainly has huge implications for the future of exploring the moon, it had a smaller implication for Twitter timelines, as everyone rushed to recall the Moon's Haunted meme from 2018. In October of 2018, Twitter user @dustinkcouch posted a tweet imagining an astronaut telling NASA scientists the moon was haunted. It went viral, gaining over 114,000 retweets in two years and inspired artistic interpretations in which people drew characters having the dialogue. With the news that the moon is "wet," the meme found new life on Twitter, with even the Washington Post posting about the story with a reference to the meme.
