What is the origin of the 'Turks are cockroaches' meme?
It's an evolved KC meme.
Hating on brits is a central theme on their /int/ and calling them cockroaches was part of the banter, often posting pictures of cockroaches with file names like "loyal subject of the queen".
Like many other great memes it was stolen by vier kannal and appropriated to turks by greek and bulgarian shitposters.
