The squat-and-squint meme is as simple as it is effective. The picture, of a woman looking really closely at something with a sense of disbelief in her eyes, has been dominating the timeline over the past week. Chances are that you have seen the picture applied to any number of circumstances, from your predictable restaurant orders to spotting a MAGA hat in the wild.

The source of the super-viral meme is Kalin Elisa, a.k.a. @solo_kalin. She is loving the attention her picture is getting and explained on Twitter that it is actually an outtake from a different shot she took for the 'Gram. Here's the original pic.

and the one that led to it.
Elisa is also letting it be known that she is the woman behind the meme, even if it is messing up her Tinder game.
