Here's Your New Favorite Tumblr Sneme

We've been taken to snurch (snail and/or snake church).

Posted on

Sometimes you don't check Tumblr for a day and then when you return a whole new, baffling meme has taken hold.


At first you just brush it off.

I'm pretty confident that Marilyn Manson never said this.

The sneme (snake and/or snail meme) is all over Tumblr all of a sudden.

"Snake people — or sneople — control our government at the highest level." H/T to Know Your Meme for pointing out these connections.

The snail meme, meanwhile, appears to have originated from Tumblr user Rhubabe's take on a certain Hozier hit:

Eventually they met and formed a beautiful monstrosity.

Though it should be noted that the snemes do "technically" have different linguistic structures.

And who knows where the hell any of it's going.

But one thing's for sure:
