Our editorial content is not influenced by any commissions we receive. Like many of you, I am a huge fan of the internet, warts and all. It's mostly warts, chock-full of creepypasta and dank memes, but sometimes, the things that go viral are truly surprising. Take this "One Thicc Bih" meme, for example.
The "one thicc bih" meme is the worst thing that's ever happened. Here's how it began.
For as long as we've been surfing the web, we've been discovering and creating new memes for future generations to study. Once in a great while a meme comes along that defies all logic, and presents those who've witnessed its glory with questions as to whether or not it was worth it to create something just because you could. Memes flit in and out of public consciousness so quickly these days, it's hard to take any new contender very seriously. With so many social networks vying for your attention, each cluttered with whatever the zeitgeist is obsessed with in that moment, it takes a truly intrepid bit of memetic creativity to transcend the likes of Tumblr, Twitter, Reddit, and Instagram all at once. The great things about memes is that they spring from nowhere as often as they spring from moments of pop culture infamy.
Here's the quick and dirty of it: It all started with a video posted to Tumblr by user dolce-dandy, an year-old from the Bay Area who asked to remain anonymous. In the video, an electronic, Auto-Tune-style song describes Mr. Krabs from SpongeBob SquarePants as "one thicc bih. Since then, people have iterated on this formula, applying it to everything from the Babadook to other SpongeBob characters to Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau. So, where — and why — the hell did this meme start?
