‘Kids introducing themselves’: An enthusiastic ’80s meme is taking over



A strange ’80s television moment is being launched into meme status, and like so many viral videos, it’s reached many’a procrastinating internet-dweller in record time.

Daily Mail tweet about ‘Britain’s best looking couple’ instantly becomes meme



LONDON — If you ask the internet something, you might not always get the answer you were expecting.

The question “Is THIS Britain’s best looking couple?,” which was tweeted on Monday night by the Daily Mail‘s @Femail account alongside photos of a couple from Essex, is a classic example of this — they were probably expecting a “yes” or “no” type reply, but the whole thing quickly got a lot more… well unconventional.
