memes

Memes are a funny thing. They almost always have humble or unassuming beginnings, but once they go viral, they take on a life of their own. Or in the case of the "Diglett Gravestone Meme," the lives of multiple memes. What began as a combination of "Who's That Pokemon?" and the goofy old Spider-Man cartoon has now become something entirely different -- and sometimes it doesn't even include Spider-Man.

DeviantArt user FemFantasy first came up with the idea of this morbid meme back in 2016, but it's seen a spike in popularity just recently. Basically, it revolves around the idea that Diglett kind of looks like a gravestone, and anyone incorrectly guessing Diglett when asked "Who's that Pokemon?" are in for a rude reminder of their tragic past. It gets a little repetitive after a while, but every once in a while you see one that punches you in the gut. Here's what we're talking about:
