I know that it is still technically September, which means that it is not yet Halloween, which means that it is not appropriate to even think about Thanksgiving, let alone mention it in a place of public discourse. I know all this, and yet, I cannot stop thinking about Thanksgiving because I cannot stop thinking about what I am going to say this Thanksgiving when, as is customary with many families in the United States of America, we go around the table and say what we are thankful for this year. This year, I am most thankful for Kim Kardashian.
I always am, of course, but, objectively, 2016 was the year when she really did reach her full potential. She took the naked selfie to end all naked selfies. She deposited a small amount of money into her husband, Kanye West’s, bank account. And, of course, she did nothing of any cultural relevance or importance to Taylor Swift. But one of the greatest Kim Kardashian events from 2016 isn’t from 2016 at all–it’s from 2011. Or, rather, it’s a meme that repurposes something that Kim once said in a 2011 episode of Kourtney And Kim Take New York. You can check out the original version below:
The meme is a simple one, as most good memes are. People just insert their own equally overt “hints” into Kim’s text. Of course, this is not a new meme by any means–it’s been rpetty popular for about a month, and it definitely existed before then–but it is a good one, and one that I do not see going away for a while. So, check out the best of these “dropping hints that I’m single” memes right now:
