ERMAHGERD: Who is This Girl?

Ever since the whole ERMAHGERD meme made the rounds last year, I’ve been wondering about this girl.

So, I did what any good cyber-sleuth would do: I Googled her. And, I found that I’m not the only one who was curious about her. Even The Huffington Post was weighing in on the matter. But, they didn’t solve the mystery.

Surely she’s seen her picture on any number of sites. Unless, of course, she’s been living in a tree house on Borneo. But, I’ll betcha they have the internet there, too.

How she’s managed to stay under the radar this long is just amazing. If I were her, I’d have some far-out, funky book blog and would be having an absolute blast being The Ermahgerd Girl. I’d go on Letterman and feel like a rock star, for God’s sake. Those 15 minutes of fame would have to last me a lifetime, so I’d wring them for all they were worth. And then some!

When Reddit started this meme, they probably had no idea what they really started. I mean, this word is in my permanent lexicon. There are some situations where , “Ermahgerd,” is the only possible word to express what I’m feeling. And, I’m betting I’m not the only one.

And then there’s the whole Berking world of animal Ermahgerd memes. This one has cracked me up every single time I see a bear:
ermahgerd bear
I double dog dare you not to laugh!

But, back to my point. Does she know about her infamy and does she even care? I would think it was an absolute hoot, but that’s just me and I have a decidedly warped sense of humor. Maybe the picture above gave you a clue that I’m bent. Anyway. . .

Hey, Reddit user xWavy, since you posted the picture, you must know who she is. Ermahgerd, all I want to know is if the mystery lady is amused. And, does she still love books?

There's so much interesting stuff out there that just flies under the radar. Until I read about it, that is, and then I just have to share the wackiness.
