Meme Of The Week: Ellen DeGeneres Goes Dark On This Week’s Most Popular Meme

This week’s meme has no clear origin, but it pokes fun at the fact that when you go to an “Ellen” taping, you’ll likely meet your hero, leave with an unexpected present, or be scared to death by a someone wearing a clown costume. The first version of the meme, developed by Twitter user @cavedevice, set the dark tone of the joke.
