The internet can literally turn anything into a meme, no matter who the person is or where they are from. In the past, dark Kermit, Spiderman, and plenty more have gone viral. It all starts with one person who takes a funny picture of someone or something and spins it into something completely different. The responses, retweets, and additional comments are typically hysterical. It’s because it takes on a life of its own often. People will retweet something and add a new and hilarious caption.
The most recent viral meme on the internet is one of Pepa Pig. Pepa Pig is a popular bilingual children’s cartoon which features a family of pigs. They’re bright pink, fairly simplistic, and have quite the cult following especially among children. Someone grabbed a screenshot of a scene where Peppa the pig was hanging up the phone on Susie Sheep following a debate about whistling. Pepa was not happy, although that’s hard to see in the face of a cartoon.
People have given that screenshot a whole new meaning. It’s now being used to show what people’s are thoughts are anytime they’re annoyed on the phone. The retweets on Twitter have been hysterical. Some of the top tweeted ones are making fun of debt collectors, scammers who say you’ve won a cruise, and exes calling. The retweets are going viral. There’s just something about Peppa’s blank stare out into space that seems mildly annoyed. It’s something that many of us have caught ourselves looking like before. That’s why it’s the perfect picture to be paired with this newest viral meme.
As always, Twitter did not let any of us down. According to Buzzfeed, these memes got thousands of likes and reposts. It doesn’t look like it’s slowing down anytime soon. More people are chiming in to add their own annoyed Peppa memes. I can honestly say that I never imagined Peppa being turned into a meme. Now that he’s here though, it’s hard to imagine it any other way.
