2012 had a lot of things, but of all the things it had, it had memes. Does that make sense? Er, anyway, memes rule.
This meme started when a Justin Bieber fan posted a parody of the song “Boyfriend.” The song (and, well, the original) had incredibly stalker-y lyrics, which gave birth to this stalker-y meme.
A journalist snapped one pic of gynmast McKayla Maroney looking, well, displeased. And thus, a meme was born.
