SAN ANTONIO – If you’ve been on social media since Wednesday’s inauguration, you’ve probably scrolled past many memes of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

An image of Sanders in a mask and mittens and sitting in the audience at the inauguration quickly went viral and now people are photoshopping the senator into a variety of circumstances.

Some of San Antonio’s landmark entities, trendy restaurants and even universities have joined the Sanders meme train and people are loving it.

“Elmer, I am once again asking for you to please watch the leg”

And of course, Bernie was also photoshopped at the Alamo, pictured below.

And don’t worry — if you have an idea for a Bernie meme that hasn’t yet been created, there’s a website that can help you make it.

Nick Sawhney, an NYU grad student, created this website that generates Bernie memes with help from Google Maps. All you’ll need to do is type in a location, click “submit” and you’ll have your meme!
