The Crazy Girlfriend Praying Mantis: Out for Blood
For some, this may be a throwback. For most, the Crazy Girlfriend Praying Mantis meme will be a fresh, new experience of stalker extremes. The meme features a photo of a praying mantis, where the female is known in most cultures for killing and consuming her male partner before, during, or after mating. You know, typical stuff. So obviously the next step would be to associate such a crazed insect with an overbearing, obsessive girlfriend through an amazing assortment of handpicked jabs and annoying comments. The series had gone seemingly unknown by many for nearly a year, but has finally grasped its full potential of hilarity in recent months.
The meme was first posted to Reddit way back on February 15th, 2011. Shortly afterwards, the website Smosh featured a round-up of images on April 15th, 2011. More variations have been posted on sites like FunnyJunk, Reddit, and the Body Building Forums, and the Crazy Girlfriend Praying Mantis Tumblr was created on March 17th, 2012, further bringing the series into the light of a broader audience.
