Bernie Anywhere

It all started from a now-iconic shot that Washington-based photographer Brendan Smialowski took of former Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders, on Capitol Hill, before Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th US President. Since that shot immediately stood in stark contrast with the other visuals of the day, the memes started to flood the Internet.

For those who are not very talented in meme-making, NYU masters student Nick Sawhney has created a website that allows you to put Bernie anywhere in the world with the help of google maps street view.

A few days later, baker Christy Williams from North Canton, Ohio, came up with Berrr It’s Cold Outside, a set of three cookies — one of Sanders and two of his matching mittens — for her Little Chunk of Goodness business, while Tobey Time Crochet created a real Bernie pattern and has made a PDF available on Etsy, so now you can crochet your very own one by yourself. “I will have Bernie sitting on my desk reminding me there is always more work to be done,” said a Jana in one of the comments to the item.

Artist Iain Heath, aka Ochre Jelly, also did not miss the opportunity to pull his LEGO Bernie out of the hat.
