GIF Meme Takes Campuses By Storm
Meme site “#WHATSHOULDWECALLME” chronicles the life of a law student through little animated images (or GIFs) that characterize and epitomize her reactions to various events and interactions. The site has amassed avid followers, internet infamy and has spawned dozens of “knock-off” sites (“MYLIFEASAKITTEN” and “How Do I Put This Gently,” for example).
The concept has hit college campuses, resulting in sites like “What Happens at Hamilton” and “Michigan GIFs” (there’s also the NESCAC-wide “What Should We ‘Cac Me“). Now Middlebury has followed suit with “What Should Midd Call Me.” From breakfast for dinner in Ross to class registration and “Like a Prayer,” WSMCM is off to a giggle-inducing start.
