First there was the flat stomach meme. Then it became the pregnant meme.
The internet is one big osmosis of ideas, so it comes as little surprise that a tongue-in-cheek meme about wanting a flat stomach versus eating lots of yummy food was given an upgrade.
The flat stomach meme began with Twitter user @itsJWolfe, who posted a side profile of a human body using dashes.
It was accompanied by a simple caption.
Me: I want a flat stomach.
Others used the meme to describe food and eating too.
There was the inevitable 'healthy' stomach
And one about fast metabolisms
There was an Italian stomach...
A heartache stomach
A stress stomach
A hot beverage tummy
It was fun for a while. And then the stomach got pregnant.
And then it turned into something weird.
Because floating emoji heads inside someone's stomach is weird
But not as weird as a floating emoji head that also has floating hands.
And it wasn't long before the NSFW ones slipped through. Because we can't have nice things.
