A new website that uses artificial intelligence to generate memes is exploding in popularity.

The site, known as “This Meme Does Not Exist,” uses software that was fed the internet’s most popular memes in order to automatically generate countless versions of its own.

The site allows users to choose from 48 different meme templates. Once a meme is picked, the AI simply fills in the needed text.

Users can even input text of their own, which will spur the software to fill out the rest of the meme with “character-level prediction.”

Since the tool is based on actual memes, the results are a stark if not hilarious reflection of society itself.
