Usually shortened to just "Pepe", Pepe
the frog is a character from Matt Furie's "Boy's Club" comic series. After the advent of the feels good man
meme on /b/
Pepe and its later alterations such as sad, angry, smug, et. al. Pepe became popular on websites outside of 4chan
, to include places like reddit
, and other image-based media sites. Eventually, different alterations of Pepe led to trading what users would call a rare pepe
, or rather a Pepe image that is not widely dispersed among different users.
Honestly, I just need a subreddit dedicated to Pepe the Frog memes. I haven't yet collected enough rare Pepe's.
