Question: What is doge?
Surely that’s not a real word. Is it? You’ve seen it popping up all over the place, but you’re not really sure what it means, or how it came about. Feeling a little left out? Well, allow us to guide you through this crazy meme so you can get back down with the cool kids and get your doge on.
Answer: If you thought that funny cats were the rulers of the Internet, think again. They’ve got company! Doge is actually just the word dog misspelled, and if you’re wondering how to pronounce it, this handy video should help you out. So, onto the origins of this hilarious and hard to explain meme: The meme itself originated from one particular photo of a dog (a Shiba Inu) sitting on a sofa with its eyes focused to the side in a suspicious glare. Then, some genius with Microsoft Paint decided to add an internal monologue in dog language to the photo in the form of brightly colored words. And the doge meme was born. Much history, so wow.
