Weekly Delight: The Best of Evil Kermit, The New Meme Sweeping The World

Over the past couple of weeks, a new meme featuring Kermit the Frog has emerged. The meme, appropriately called Evil Kermit, shows the beloved frog facing a hooded version of himself, with the idea being that the “good” Kermit is losing out to the “bad” Kermit, much like you do when you know the right to do but opt for the wrong choice instead.

Select All reports the photo comes from 2014’s Muppets Most Wanted, in which Kermit confronts his wicked twin Constantine. Somehow, the image made its way onto Twitter, where users were quick to adapt it into a new meme. Below are a handful of the best Evil Kermit tweets.

If this looks familiar, that’s because Evil Kermit is the second popular meme to star the green Muppet. First there was “But that’s none of my business,” which Know Your Meme defines as “a sarcastic expression used as a postscript to an insult or disrespectful remark said towards a specific individual or group.” The meme is most famously associated with a photo of Kermit drinking tea, but other photos of the frog (or Tea Lizard, as some say) also work.

Will Evil Kermit surpass the Mannequin Challenge as 2016’s defining meme? It’s too early to tell but–unless a Beatle partakes–we’re going to guess no.
