These Rhyming Elf On The Shelf Memes Have Taken Over The Internet

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.

These друг Memes Are Still Creeping Around The Internet

Earlier this month we reported on the bizarre popularity of these Deathclaw memes, and they've shown no sign of slowing down. The creepy, cursed images seem to have won the hearts of netizens - inserting themselves into other popular meme formats. While we wouldn't want to run into a Deathclaw IRL, we're enjoying the друг (meaning friend, pronounced "droog") craze. Keep on creepin' on, друг.

How A Devious Kid's Lie And World Of Warcraft Got Him Into College Early

All I'm saying is if this kid took that silly little lie that far, how do we know what's being put out right now as a story grounded in truth, isn't just another work of fiction? That being said, the creativity is still on point, and to imagine such a scenario actually happening, is WILD.

While learning how to give CPR can surely save lives, there is some less than optimistic information about how blowing on a game cartridge doesn't help anything really. The rebooting process probably does more to improve game play than the air (and possibly saliva) that you hurled at the electronics at breathy speeds.
