Just like when old people try and adopt something young and hip to 'connect' with younger generations, HealthCare.gov has officially ended the beloved 'Doge' meme, a barely coherent Shiba Inu that speaks in colorful comic sans.
While yes, the fact that they went out of their way to ruin a meme will likely make it go viral, we're willing to bet that it'll have little to no effect on what they're trying to do for healthcare!
In other words, the end of Doge wasn't worth it!
Along with the image (above), they simply posted:
And here are some of the reactions:
@Ajay_H_Kumar: @HHSGov well that's it then. Doge is no longer cool. Well done government, you killed a meme. I suppose that makes this a death panel #doge
@JeffYoung: Ugh. RT: @HHSGov: #GetCovered: http://www.HealthCare.gov , pic.twitter.com/JpElN0IeBA
@WalshFreedom: Well if this doesn't make you sign up, I don't know what will RT@HHSGov: #GetCovered: http://www.HealthCare.gov
RIP Doge, you were taken too soon.
What's next, Government (and out of touch old people)? Tinder?
