Recently a new meme has taken the internet by storm.  This new meme trend “You’ve heard of Elf on the Shelf but have you heard of…” started on Reddit in late 2016.  Reddit users knew it would be a mainstream meme then but didn’t know when the trend would pick up.  Today in 2017 the meme has finally made it to the top.  The meme came back on Tumblr on August 27th by user “dankmemeuniversity”.  The user made a post showing Ash Ketchum from Pokemon in a trash can with the caption, “ You’ve heard of Elf on the Shelf but have you heard of Ash in the Trash?”. Since the user’s post many have picked up on the trend and it has many iterations like, “Drake on a Rake” and “Shrek on a Deck.” 

Overall, I give this meme a rating of 7 Elf’s on the Shelf out of 10.
