Senator Bernie Sanders, wearing his sensible coat and made-in-Vermont mittens during the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, is the stuff dreams are made of for meme makers.
I love a good meme as much as the next person. Bernie’s original photo was taken by Brendan Smialowski/AFP and was for Getty Images, but the internet has taken it as its own. I’ve seen Bernie superimposed into a bodega, next to Queen Elizabeth, as the Bernie del Milo, at a basketball game, into lots and lots of movies and TV shows, and too many more to mention.
But, of course, the best ones for me were the travel-related ones.
Joe posted a short series of them yesterday and they were good, but the internet, being the internet, had to say “hold my beer.” That’s how we got these gems:

However my favorite, which I’ll say is travel because hey, it’s at a beach, is this one:

Of course, the popularity of these memes will be done in a hot minute. But until then, they’re good for a smile or two.
Have a nice weekend, travel friends!
