** The Cringeworthy gallery gave way to some in-website memes during its run on the website, such as an [=MSPaint=] drawing of an alien with long fingernails saying "[[HowDoIUsedTense Time to killed people]]", a picture of two Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog [=OC=]s with one tiredly saying "I need blood" as the other OC insists that they take hers, and the infamous "Herculoon", a drawing of Disney/{{Hercules}} with the [[BalloonBelly proportions of a beach ball]]. However, the closing of the Cringeworthy gallery saw the popularity of these memes plummet, as they became symbols of how much of a mess the website became during the Cringeworthy period.

Also, on a bit of an off note, since entries on Know Your Meme work on an entirely different principle than here on Tv Tropes, you can expect them to touch on topics that would otherwise be too [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement controversial]] or [[Administrivia/TheGoogleIncident unsafe]] for us to talk about, making them a good site to get a second opinion from.

[[http://knowyourmeme.com Know Your Meme]] is an internet series created by the Rocketboom Institute for Internet Studies, in which resident scientists Kenyatta Cheese (aka Yatta), Elspeth Jane (aka Ellie Rountree), and now-retired Jamie Wilkinson (aka Jamie Dubs) tackle on to provide general history of internet memes as well as to try and explain what exactly makes them memetic.

Older episodes were made JustForFun and all the research was done by the KYM staff themselves. But over time, the Know Your Meme website was created and most of the research is now done there. On the site, anyone can submit a basic meme article (akin to ThatOtherWiki), which, if the subject is deemed notable, is subsequently researched and expanded. Later on, the site was bought by the Cheezburger Network.
