"My son is a meme?"

Allen S. Rout posted some cute pictures of his infant son Stephen ten years ago, one of them with the caption, "We're really blessed. Stephen is an amazingly happy baby." That image is shown above, in the upper-left hand corner.

Now, Stephen is a ten-year-old boy&mdash but that infant photo has blossomed into a full-blown meme in Japan. Some of the expressions of that meme are shown above.
