We can always count on TikTok and Instagram to introduce us to new memes, but some of them fade away after just a few days. That doesn’t seem to be the case with Little Miss memes, which are currently taking the internet by storm—and showing no signs of stopping!

Unless you’ve been off the grid for the last week or so, chances are you know what Little Miss memes are, but they’ve actually been around for much longer than that. According to Know Your Meme, they initially emerged on Tumblr all the way back in 2021.

Unfortunately, this social media platform is no longer as popular as it used to be, and it took a while for Little Miss memes to reach the mainstream audience. That moment finally came this summer, when TikTok users started sharing their own versions of the memes.

These viral memes are all about recaptioning the covers of the Mr. Men and Little Miss books with hilarious and relatable new captions. The original books from this popular children’s series featured characters named after their signature traits. Little Miss memes take a similar approach, but they’re all about making fun of yourself and your flaws, and seeing how many more people feel the same way.
