Alright folks, we’ve been self-isolating over the last few weeks and I’ve seen some pretty weird shit online. First, there was a character personality quiz that said I was Timoon from The Lion King, then, I read reports claiming my childhood faves Club Penguin and Community Channel might be coming back when I needed them most, and an Italian politician threatened to send out drones if people continued to not practice social distancing and stay in their homes.
But, nothing has been as absurd or unhinged as Twitter’s latest obsession. I give you, 2020’s absurd Gossip Girl meme.

What Is The Gossip Girl Meme?
I’m not sure how it came about but essentially, the Gossip Girl meme is quite simple. It’s a basic split-screen image of Blair responding to Serena with a phrase or response made from the words “Gossip Girl.”
Serena: Peppa who?
Blair: pig girl
Serena: I need to pee
Blair: go piss girl
And, naturally, the internet being the internet, the meme has evolved and become extremely chaotic. Next to a new trend of absurd TikTok anime fandubs that I fell into over the last few weeks, it’s the only thing that truly reflects my sudden descent into madness during this period of social distancing and self-isolation. Check out the cursed memes below if you dare.
As alt-pop idol Slayyyter tweeted, “we are all forever in debt to the person who created the Gossip Girl meme.”

In other news, HBO’s reboot of the show is expected to premiere later this year. Whether the production and streaming company managed to finish shooting everything before the Covid-19 pandemic is currently unclear.
