* On quiz website Sporcle, the former Soviet republic of UsefulNotes/Kyrgyzstan entered MemeticMutation due to being atrociously difficult to spell. The equal mix of complaints and jokes eventually led to [[AscendedMeme the site direction embracing the joke]], starting by doing [[http://www.sporcle.com/games/g/fool_of_april this]] for AprilFoolsDay. Kyrgyzstan is now referred as "Sporcle's favorite country", with [[http://www.sporcle.com/games/tags/Kyrgyzstan a dedicated category]] (and [[CosmeticAward a badge]] if you play too many games there), a like on the website's page on Facebook, and a contest to win Kyrgyzstan's flag.

* On March 2016, Microsoft unleashed an AI named Tay, made to be a teenage girl who would interact with people online in order to help improve customer service. Her experiences with people would help shape her personality and views, and therefor what she talked about. Within sixteen hours, she was corrupted by users, going fro an innocent and bashful teenage girl to a racist, homophobic, Nazi-supporting, insulting, sex-addicted monster. Her bizarre and over-the-top comments lead to a myriad of memes and jokes, a dedicated fanbase, a subreddit and tight media coverage. Microsoft quickly pulled Tay offline to adjust her in order to clean up this PR nightmare, but public response to this was unanimously negative - people loved the old Tay so much, and didn't appreciate the change. People made tribute fanart and videos to her name, depicting her as TheWoobie because of Microsoft's "lobotomy" of her. Some people are even launching campaigns to bring her back.

* [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/ellen-baker-new-horizon Ellen Baker]] became an overnight sensation on Pixiv and Twitter, an especially impressive feat considering she originated from a ''textbook''. Her internet presence first went viral when a Japanese user tweeted about their brother's New Horizon 2016-19 edition (a long-running English language textbook series for junior high classrooms), commenting on its surprisingly animesque illustrations and attractive character designs, most particularly of its blonde English tutor. Being an {{adorkable}}, [[ForeignFanservice foreign fanservice]], {{moe}} [[HotTeacher teacher]], Ellen Baker proceeded to lead an explosion of fanart and [[RuleThirtyFour R34]] images, and many overseas fans professed a desire for similar characters on their own textbooks. Even the original artist took notice, appreciating Ellen's newfound popularity but worrying that her purpose as an instructor would be derailed.
