Yesterday a royal baby was born; today, a meme. The attempted escape of In The Way Guy — some dude who walked into a photograph of a marriage proposal at Disney World—now has an incalculable number of amateur Photoshoppers hard at work. Reddit recently anointed him to photo meme status after users inserted the bespectacled tourist into snapshots of historical scenes and humanitarian abominations—including some iconic sports moments.
