Meme Of The Week 10-14

This week’s meme is Cigar Guy

The Back Story: In October at the 2010 Ryder Cup, Daily Mail photographer Mark Pain snapped an awesome shot of Tiger Woods nailing a golf ball right towards the camera. The image looks almost too perfect to be an event photo and at first many thought it was a publicity shot:

As the photo circulated one thing stood out, the gentleman on the right hand side with the cigar. He looked so out of place it was comical. And that ladies and gentleman is how memes are born. Pretty soon Photoshops of the image were popping up on forums all over the net. One thing that fueled the meme was the mystery of who the man was. The Daily Mail tracked him down and found his name was Rupesh Shingadia, a 30-year-old investment analyst. When asked about the getup (the wig, cigar, and fake mustache) he said it was a tribute to Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez.
