Wasn't the frog meme born on 4chan? How did it come to be associated with Reddit?

Pepe the frog was not born on 4chan. The remixing and modification of Pepe the frog was but the original source material was a comic strip.

Most of these in the picture provided were born on 4chan, though not the Yao Ming vectorization, most of the others were. (It's difficult to remember exactly which ones were and weren't). All of these are now associated with reddit.

"EPIC WIN!" "EPIC FAIL" and the like were born on 4chan. They are now associated with 9gag.

This is nothing new. 4chan used to exist on a much smaller internet. The internet has gotten tremendous and websites that aggregate content now own the content. A single piece of information no longer has any value. While "PEPE THE FROG" may have value, T5E7qo2NQPFzF1nfNejJ_UpvOWd7X.jpg does not, as I can just make infinitely many of them and nobody would ever spend a cent for one of them.

I hope this has cleared some things up for you, Anon. If you'd like me to clarify any of my points or if you'd like to correct me on any of my errors, I'm open to discussion and criticism.

Just because it's from 4chan doesn't mean it's 4chan tier. All these rage comic memes like Trollface and so on comes from 4chan too, but it doesn't mean it's 4chan tier as I said. Kinda like Polandball comes from Krautchan, or Dolan, that comes from Ylilauta, doesn't mean these memes are fitting for these sites, same goes for 4chan.

This is where Pepe comes from:

The same way any meme becomes associated with Reddit.
Reddit fags come here, see a funny frog, and then start spamming it (often in the wrong context) everywhere in an attempt to get upvotes from other people who do the same thing.

It least it spawned the "poopoopeepee" thing which I at least thought was funny.
That "rare pepe" shit was annoying though.

I could have sworn "rare pepe" started on /r9k/.

Pepe is getting to the point where it needs to flat out be banned from this site

Pepe needs to be banned so there is more room for bananas and associated memes

Redditors naturally migrant towards the source of the pepes

Unfortunately they don't leave

Because fags keep spamming it on boards where it doesn't belong, that is, anywhere other than /b/. The inability -- or unwillingness -- to differentiate /b/ from the rest of 4chan is a redditor trait. (To be fair, it's also a trait of people from other faggy sites, e.g. FB or KYM, but reddit is the biggest offender.)

The fat cats at reddit like to steal memes from good honest hard working meme creators at 4chan and harvest them for internet points until they are beaten to death

4chan loves Scotsmen. You're right, we should drop the pretense and directly state that frogs are a symbol of the >tfwnogf idiots.
