“Sad Joe Biden” Photo Goes Viral, Hilarity Ensues
A photo of Vice-President Biden from September has become an immortal Internet meme:
It started in September, when the above photo was taken, and the Internet embraced the opportunity to try and understand what Biden could have been thinking. The meme could have died there, but it instead turned into a Hydra that kept regrowing favs.
The Fix’s Jamie Fuller has some of the best from Twitter:

As Fuller notes, the meme has now been picked up by “professionals” at sites like Buzzfeed which is probably the first sign that its on the way out, but never fear Sad Joe Biden, we’ll never forget you.
