Kermit knows how to meme

Kermit the Frog is a much-loved puppet character created by Jim Henson. Kermit stared as the host of the Muppet Show and also made appearances on Sesame Street and quite a few movies.

Kermit has made the jump from television and movies to Internet popular culture via the meme. While Kermit's meme popularity has waxed and waned, he has been a popular source of memes, especially the "But That's None of My Business" series since 2014. Other popular Kermit memes include Evil Kermit as well as Scooter Kermit.

What do Kermit the Frog Memes Mean?

"But That's None of My Business" memes feature Kermit drink a glass of tea or less frequently a glass of milk, sarcastically minding his own business while commenting on the foibles of others.

Evil Kermit memes use an image of Kermit talking with is nemesis dressed as a Sith Lord from the Star Wars series who is constantly telling Kermit to perform unethical, lazy or self-indulgent tasks.

Scooter Kermit, not related to a Muppet named Scooter, feature Kermit riding a small moped like cycle. He is obviously on his way to do something, and that is the theme of the memes using Scooter Kermit.
