17 Of The Funniest "Am I A Joke To You?" Animal Memes

The dankest memes are often both extremely niche and highly mutable.

Case in point: The "Am I a joke to you?" meme, which first found life online as a reaction image plucked from an obscure South African soap opera but has since evolved into a popular joke format capable of being bent around almost any topic or headline.

Of interest to readers of this website, however, is one very specific sub-genre of the AIAJTY meme framed around critters.

While the particulars vary from example to example, the construction is largely the same: A pet or animal is pictured with some sort of physical representation of themselves (or their breed).

And the doppelgängers, as you'll see below, are almost always greeted with 0-effs-given-level scorn and derision — if they are even acknowledged in the first place.
