While this meme is rather old, the other week I thought of a meme morph and decided to make it a reality today. Using the same php script that powers the Lost Series, I decided to take an image that represented poverty and add the LOLtext. Originally it was only going to say “I CAN HAS A CHEESEBURGER?” and when the user clicks on the kid, the background would change. This was to represent that while the mesage stays the same, the American people represented behind the kid would change, and thus the message would continue to be the elephant in the room. I decided to modify the original plan slightly and incorporate an animated gif (I am not aware of any LOLmeme that has used an animated gif) that represents the child speaking to you the viewer. Not only asking for the cheeseburger, but telling you why, and hopefully making you desire to do something about it.
