Memes, for the uninitiated, are “any online media that spreads on a massive scale across the Internet,” Kim said. Many, he said, come from TV, popular movies, video games -- mainstream culture.
(Note: The language in some images in the meme video above is not always family friendly.) Memes crop up at websites with looser restrictions on filtering content than mainstream news sites, Kim said.
“ All your base are belong to us,” Kim said, was one of the first Internet memes to be widely covered in the news media. There can be a “huge allergic reaction” to some memes continuing, Kim noted.
Example from 2011: “planking” -- which, interestingly, is on the Best of 2011 list -- and subsequent photo fads, including owling.” “One of the more interesting patterns we've seen,” Kim said, is the 'Family Guy' effect” -- evidence that online audiences can be snobs or, perhaps, just fickle.
# movie # film # excited # friendship # adventure Unless you're an avid Overwatch player, the viral tweet that shows a disciplinary slip given to a child for calling another kid a Heinz main” is probably leaving you scratching your head.
In Overwatch, a competitive multiplayer shooter made by Blizzard, teams of six fight against each other to capture an objective point or escort a payload. It's not clear exactly why Heinz has such a bad reputation, but it probably has to do with the fact that he's a character who requires a highly skilled player to really be effective.
Unlike other characters, Heinz tends to work best as a lone wolf, so there's often the perception that he's not really contributing to the team's composition as a whole. The Overwatch Twitter chimed in soon after the tweet gained major steam, saying that while they don't support using “Heinz main” as an insult, they liked her ferocity.

Starting with Feeling Pinkie Keen, the show's crew began giving the pony crossed eyes intentionally and later gave her Where's Waldo type cameo appearances as a nod to the fans. The character is addressed by Rainbow Dash in The Last Roundup as Derby, where she speaks for the first time.
Alert viewers of the show noticed a googly-eyed Pegasus mare in the series' first episode, standing in the background in the crowd at Twilight Sparkle's welcoming party. After the image was captured and posted on 4chan's comics and cartoons board /co/, fans began speculating on the nature of this odd pony.
The name she was given, Derby Hooves, is derived from the slang term deep “, which is associated with someone who behaves in a silly manner and is often connected with crossed eyes. Derby was one of several background ponies chosen from a palette and placed in the scenes on the whim of layout artists.
At first, her face wasn't supposed to be visible in that particular scene, but a later layout change uncovered it. Jayson Giessen, the supervising director of the show, stated that he noticed and was amused by her expression.
Since Hasbro had already given the episode a green light, he didn't order fixing Derby's eyes. Lauren Faust, the show's developer, was delighted to find these changes and kept them in.
Before the name Derby was used by the production crew, Faust stated that in one of the unarmed episodes at the time, Winter Wrap Up, there is a mention of a “featherbrained” Pegasus named Dizzy Dew whose appearance is never established on-screen and if Dizzy should make an appearance, the show may assign Derby's design to her. Faust later stated that “it sounds like finally landed on 'Derby Hooves'”.
Amy Keating Rogers sang her original rendition of the Smile Song at Bronson 2012, in which Pinkie Pie speaks to Derby and calls her Derby Dew, which in Rogers' script, the name changed to. Latin American Spanish dub director Maggie Vera referred to Derby by name in an October 2012 tweet crediting her voice actress.
Jim Miller in a June 13, 2015, Twitter conversation explained that the name was changed to Muffins for legal reasons. In the script for Slice of Life, she was referred to as “Derby” for the sake of labeling.
Larson revealed Hasbro called her Muffins in the credits. Lauren Faust participated in a charity auction for the 2011 Japan relief effort by donating several of her My Little Pony Friendship is Magic production sketches.
Officially licensed apparel sporting Derby was first made available on August 2011 at the online store Wolverine, though the store carries fan-designs which refer to various characters by various fan-given names. More designs were later made available on and at Hot Topic retail stores, and afterwards Derby was featured on the Comic Con 2011 promotional poster.
Derby is featured in her Nightmare Night paper bags costume in the Castle Creator flash game, with the file name for her asset containing the word “Derby”. A December 2011 update to the game contained another Derby asset, wearing a reindeer cap and a red nose, this time with its file name containing the phrase “DH_definitely_canon”.
The day Hearth's Warming Eve aired, The Hub's Facebook page posted a message encouraging readers to “spot fan favorite Derby” in the episode. A limited edition 2013 San Diego Comic-Con iRobot designer USB flash drive of her bears the name “Derby” with a trademark symbol, though on Mimic's website is only referred to as “Fan Favorite” and “Fan Favorite Pony “.

A special edition Fashion Style toy of Derby titled “2012 Special Edition Pony doesn't name the pony on the product packaging or in publicity material. It was sold exclusively at the 2012 Comic-Con convention, Hasbro's My Little Pony Fair convention and the Toy Shop website ; the item went out of stock on the website the same day it was put on sale.
Derby's head is featured inside of Princess Celestia's cutie mark on the cover of one edition of the Little Pony Giant Coloring and Activity Book and poking her head out of a house in the background on another. A special Derby tin containing trading cards including a Derby promo card became available at Hot Topic in April 2013.
Relaxing while off the clock, this Pegasus enjoys spending time with Golden Harvest and her other friends. Pretty much the rest of her time is dedicated to muffins; MMM, muffins...” The initials of each sentence form “Deep”, alluding to the origin of her name.
By late 2014, Derby merchandise started featuring the name Muffins. An image for the two-year anniversary of Game loft's mobile game in late 2014 refers to her as Muffins.
Hasbro's My Little Pony Facebook page referred to her as Muffins in a post on May 24, 2015. In August 2015, Build-A-Bear Workshop released the Little Pony Furry Friend “Muffins” as a web store exclusive in the United States at least.
She is mentioned by Rainbow shine and Rainbow Dash during Winter Wrap Up, using the name “Dizzy Dew”, for flying the wrong direction for the second year running, trying to fetch the migrating birds back to Montville. Derby can be seen throughout the season trotting through a park, helping with storm preparations, participating in the Running of the Leaves, visiting Ponyville's market and more.
She is one of the ponies in the crowd who admires Pinkie Pie's “baked bad” in Apple buck Season. The shot pans over the crowd and Derby, Minute, and Sea Swirl all mouth the line “MMM, muffins...” at approximately the same time.
Derby appears with intentionally crossed eyes in Feeling Pinkie Keen ; when Twilight spies on Pinkie Pie, a series of objects falls on her head: a flower pot, an anvil, a cart of hay and finally a piano. A camera pan reveals that the items were dropped by Derby and Sun shower Raindrops, who are hovering next to a movers' truck.
In Green Isn't Your Color, she is heard gasping in shock at Fluttershy's catwalk antics. In Parental Guidance, Derby appears as a filly with normal eyes as the pony in first place at the senior competitive circuit.
The first appears alongside Derby in crowd shots and has orange hair, while the middle three appear in the musical sequences and have either red, pale blue, or light purple hair. Background ponies often appear throughout episodes with slight color variations, particularly in crowd shots, and some ponies share the same character design with different color schemes.
Derby appears in nineteen episodes of season one as a background character. For season two, she has gained a scripted-character status rather than an arbitrary background pony, and she is considered a “Where's Waldo”-type challenge for the fans.
In the remastered version of the opening sequence that is first used in Lesson Zero, she appears in the top window of the first train car. She is one of the ponies under the effects of Twilight Sparkle's spell on Smarty Pants in Lesson Zero.
When Princess Celestial removes the spell from everyone, Derby finds herself fighting with Mayor Mare and returns to her derped-face self. Derby is dressed in several brown paper bags in Luna Eclipsed and participates in Applejack's apple bob activity during Nightmare Night with Golden Harvest.
In Putting Your Hoof Down, she first appears in the market scene approaching the asparagus stand while bearing muffin-sealed saddlebags, where she reacts to the stallholder's lack of asparagus. Derby appears quite frequently in Hurricane Flutter shy, which is the episode featuring her longest screen time outside The Last Roundup.
She first appears at the beginning reading a flyer that Rainbow Dash dropped with only one of her eyes, the other looking elsewhere, and again as part of the ponies participating in the Wing Speed testing, and she is part of the tornado team led by Rainbow Dash. She returns in Magical Mystery Cure with five appearances, the first being on a bridge during the opening song, the second being flying through the air with other Vegas in a “Blue Angels” style formation.
When Rainbow Dash fakes getting injured, Flutter shy and Bulk Biceps fill her spot on the Montville relay team with Derby. Her appearance after such a long near-absence was intentional on the show writers' part to keep her return a surprise.
She can be found a few times in Pinkie Pride, first following Cheese Sandwich, helping put up decorations, sticking her face into a chocolate fountain and engaging in a staring contest with Cheese Sandwich's rubber chicken, Boneless. In The Cart Before the Ponies, Derby participates in the Applewood Derby driving a go-kart made out of a box with an unnamed male colt.
She also appears as a filly in a flashback winning first place for Most Creative. In Triple Threat, Ember attempts to befriend Derby by stealing her muffin and rubbing it against a wall.
The scene starts with Rainbow Dash getting the tip of her tail singed by a lightning bolt, coming from a gray storm cloud that Derby is bouncing on. Don't want to do any more damage than you've already done”, pointing to the broken and crashing roof of the Montville town hall.
Derby replies, “I just don't know what went wrong”, and shocks herself from another bolt of lightning from the cloud she's bouncing on. She flies by Rainbow Dash and compliments her work, but bumps into a pillar behind her and sends it hurtling to the ground.
Rainbow Dash tries to stop it, but she smashes through the floor with the pillar. Derby sticks her head in the hole asking if Rainbow Dash is okay and asks if there's anything she can do to help, but Rainbow Dash flies up and tells her to sit there and do nothing.
When Derby sits down in response, the floor below her starts to crack, and she falls through, grabbing Rainbow Dash and pulling her down along for the ride. When Mayor Mare gives her speech in honor of Applejack, Derby sticks out of the hole in the broken floor and cheers for Applejack, but she lets go and falls down once again.
The episode was story boarded by Sabrina Alberghetti and Nicole Wang. Rogers was requested by Faust to rename the pony to “Derby” as a “tip of the hat” to fans.
Subsequent alteration The episode was removed from iTunes a week after its release and put back up on 24 February 2012, with Derby's scene altered: a few words are omitted from the dialog, in particular Rainbow Dash does not name Derby, Derby's voice is different and more feminine, and Derby's eyes are not as acutely crossed in a few of the shots in the scene. An April 14, 2012, rerun of the episode on the Hub uses the altered scene, but the closed captions were not adjusted.
The episode available on Netflix also uses the edited scene, as does the 2013 DVD Season Two Disc 3. The decision to alter the character was made by Hasbro or The Hub, in response to emails complaining about the character's portrayal and the word “Derby”, both of which have been taken as offensive to people with disabilities.
International broadcasts In the Arabic, French, Italian, Russian, Ukrainian, and Japanese broadcasts of The Last Roundup, she is still called “Derby” by Rainbow Dash.
