This poor, innocent man has become the latest victim to the Internet’s insatiable need for PhotoShop-driven laughs. Caught in one of the sudden and brutal winter storms the man, now identified as Zach Burroughs, sought shelter for him and his frozen treat. Perhaps it was the apparent devotion to his ice cream or because he looked more like a time traveler from next summer, Burroughs has become the darling of Reddit and is the foci of many a meme mashup.
Burroughs remains lukewarm about his newfound popularity, but apparently even more blasé about the foodstuff that catapulted him to internet stardom. As he said to The Washington Post, who originally ran his picture:
“I don’t even like ice cream that much,” said Burroughs, an attorney who works on 15th Street NW.
The WaPo also has a meme post-mortem, giving us a peak behind the curtain of what makes an internet star. But more importantly is your fix of funny pictures.
