Doge is a meme created in 2010. It features a funny looking Shiba Inu. The meme is now one of the best known memes of all time, also getting the award for "Bad Meme" of 2013.
The origin of Doge started in 2005. It was used as a grammar mistake in "Biz Cas Fri 1" which aired on June 24th, 2005. A character named "Homestar" accidently calls his workmate, "Strong Bad" a "D-o-g-e.", instead of "d-o-g", trying to distract him from his work.
On the day of Februrary 23rd, 2010, 5 years later after "Biz Cas Fri 1", a Japanese Kindergarten teacher named Atsuko Sato posted several pictures of a rescused Shiba Inu dog on his blog. Later in December 2013, 3 years after the photos, shortly after the breakout of "Doge", a tech news site "The Verge" published a article about the original Shiba Inu depicted in the meme.
On October 28th, 2010, a picture of Kabosu was submitted in the "/rAds subreddit with the title, "LMBO LOOK @ THE FUKKIN DOGE." It recieved 266 upvotes, 218 points overall and 48 comments prior of it being archived.
And that... my friends is how Doge was born. Kill Doge for 2003 Times
