Thanks to the diligence of the Internet, any news story, weather pattern, and expressive animal can find new life as a meme. And this week was no exception. Here, we tip our hat to the very best meme of the moment.
The Grumpiest Face on Earth
How do you exact revenge after your spouse backs out of accompanying you onto Splash Mountain? Take a mid-ride photo that they’ll never forget. Such was the case for one spurned wife—and the Internet didn’t miss a step. Jordan Alexander became the most memed photo of the week after a picture of her, complete with a steely expression and folded arms, went viral.
“She just gave the perfect, perfect husband death stare at that camera, and I’m glad a lot of people get it in the spirit it was intended,” Alexander’s husband, Steven, said.
Her stone-cold stare was spliced onto the Mona Lisa, became a political spoof, and even revived the meme of John Travolta giving Scarlett Johansson a very uncomfortable side smooch. “The Mona Lisa one cracked us up the first time we saw it—we just died laughing.” Steven said. “Then the one where she is Photoshopped in with all the current politicians running for president was really hilarious.”
Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand memes.
