Another week, another shitposting trend. Everyone's favorite Christmas tradition is now part of the latest fad. Starting last week, people on Twitter and Reddit have been creating memes with the text "You've heard of elf on the shelf, now get ready for" accompanied by an image of another rhyming situation. Nintendo characters have been especially popular: think photos like Link in a sink, Waluigi on a squeegee, Princess Peach on a beach.
Because the format is so simple (and many would argue, stupid) these rhyming memes have spread like wildfire. Here are some of our favorites.
Move over, NCAA March Madness. Twitter user @yeeitsanthony broke the internet last week after posting what has become a very controversial Disney vs. Pixar bracket. We could argue for hours over whether Tarzan or Hercules even belong on the bracket, so you can imagine the spats that are forming over people's winners.
As with anything that goes viral on Twitter, the bracket itself has turned into something of a meme. We're almost partial to the parody brackets!

On June 28th, 2017, Twitter user @makennamg tweeted a series of photos of herself cleaning up Donald Trump's Hollywood star. The tweet read "Stopped to clean @realDonaldTrump Hollywood Star. Nothing but respect for MY President. #RaisedRight." Shortly after posting the tweet, user @alexaagarciaa (now private) responded with her own photo - featuring both her middle fingers and Trump's star covered in stickers.
Naturally, the fun didn't stop there. Since the original photos were tweeted, users have been responding with photos of themselves "cleaning" the stars of celebrities they consider to be their president - from Donald Duck to Charlie Sheen...and even Shrek. Whose star would YOU clean?

The video shows a less wacky, more down-to-earth character, which just makes the whole thing so much sadder.
Speaking to Yahoo News, Farley's younger brother Kevin Farley explained how the Shrek character had to change.
Originally the Shrek character was a little bit more like Chris, like a humble, bumbling innocent guy. I understand why [they replaced him]. hey probably wanted to make Shrek 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, so… The studio needed to do what they needed to do. It was a bad time, bad timing… a tragedy. Mike did a great job with Shrek. He knocked it out of the park.
Chris Farley died of a drug overdose in 1997. He's had something of a revival in the past few months, with the release of I Am Chris Farley, a documentary about his life.
