Gym Kardashian Combines Kim’s Head with Engorged Arm Muscles To Produce Insane Meme

Gym Kardashian: The meme we all needed but didn’t know it. It features the head of Keeping Up With the Kardashians Kim Kardashian with engorged biceps, accompanied by a witty line.

According to, the meme was started by Twitter user @jaypaulgeorge on February 12. His first post garnered 50 retweets and 220 likes. For his follow-up post, he added two more distorted pictures and the meme went viral, attracting more than 73,000 retweets and 264,000 likes.

Popular tag lines included phrases like, “me after bringing in the groceries in one trip,”  “me trying to stay strong on Valentine’s Day” and “When he calls you bro.”

Kardashian, 37, did not immediately respond to the meme, though she did say what she doesn’t like about being famous during a keynote conversation for Create & Cultivate‘s Los Angeles conference on Saturday: “When I just look like shit and want to go outside and eat a churro and not have anyone up my ass."

But, of course, her privileged life does have its perks, like getting “free shit,” she joked.

After the laughter died down, she added, “No, the free trips. Free trips, free planes, free everything! I do love to share. When I get free stuff, I give it to literally everyone, family, friends.”

For her, vacations mean a break from reality. “Trips are usually what I do for gifts now,” she said. “Material things don’t make me happy anymore, but experiences do. For my birthday, my husband [Kanye West] took me away to Utah to this hotel for two days and we slept the entire time. I think that was so much fun, and everyone just mentally needs to take a break.”

She was inspired to pursue a career in reality television thanks to MTV’s The Real World. She recalled the moment to her best friend Allison Statter, co-founder and co-CEO of Blended Strategy Group.

The Real World came out, it was like 1989,” she said to Statter at the event on Saturday. “And we were at your parents’ house in your room and the Real World came on and I was like, ‘This is it, I have to be on the Real World.’ And I was like, ‘Allison, let’s make audition tapes when we turn 18...and you can be my manager.’”
