It’s been almost four years since Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift at the Video Music Awards, drawing the ire of world leaders , epically-maned millionaires and Michael Jackson’s dad, and becoming the inspiration for a truly massive Internet meme in the process.
Yet, despite all that time, and with innumerable Internet fads coming and going since, it seems that Taylor’s still enjoys a good “Imma let you finish” joke every now and then, as evidenced by her recent gift to tourmate Ed Sheeran: A jar of homemade jam she labeled with a none-too-subtle reference to Kanye’s onstage rant (“this is the best JAM OF ALL TIME,” she wrote).
And yes, it was certainly a nice gesture (the jam, we mean … that stuff’s hard to make), and while we realize she’s been pretty busy over the past four years, we can’t help wonder: Is she aware of some of the other amazing memes that have sprouted up since 2009?
Just in case she’s not, we’re here to help … and get her burgeoning canning and preserving business off the ground at the same time. Here’s a whole list of potential products she could make. These are Taylor Swift’s homemade jams of woefully outdated Internet memes, complete with her handwritten notes.
