Neil DeGrasse Tyson Meme

March 2, 2012 by staff 

Neil DeGrasse Tyson Meme, Neil deGrasse Tyson looks kind of defensive. Or possibly confused. Or is he dismissive? In a newly-minted internet meme, a four-second animated GIF captures the famous astrophysicist tossing up his hands and rolling his eyes.

 A still version of the gesture — pursed lips, exposed palms and all — has also been widely circulated as a black-and-white drawing. This depiction is sometimes accompanied by the words, “Watch out guys, we’re dealing with a badass over here,” and is posted in online forums to mock anyone who gets too ccky.

It all began in June of last year, when a video of Tyson discussing Isaac Newton was uploaded onto YouTube. A minute and a half into the video , Tyson mentions that Newton invented his own kind of calculus before turning 26. And then he makes the gesture — a nonverbally sarcastic ‘no big deal’ of sorts — that is now exploding all over Reddit and other social networking sites.
