Meme, Myself, and I: Karl Pilkington

And now, time for another installment of Meme, Myself, and I!

I’m sure you’re familiar with Ricky Gervais. Not only is he the creator of “The Office” and “Extras,” but he’s starred in hit films like “Night at the Museum” and “The Invention of Lying.”

But did you know he used to have a podcast?

Probably, because HBO has now taken the episodes of Gervais’ widely popular podcast “The Ricky Gervais Show” and animated them. The shows feature Gervais and “Office” co-creator Stephen Merchant discussing a range of issues with Karl Pilkington, a man described by Gervais as “an absolute idiot.”

Well, Pilkington unintentionally created a new internet meme when, in the middle of a discussion, remarked “I could eat a knob at night.” If you don’t understand what’s wrong with this sentence, click here.

This spawned a whole new internet meme, which resulted in the following:

Come to think of it, I am feeling rather peckish…
