Is This

The “Is This” meme, simply put, is a character who is pointing to something and asking if it’s something that it clearly isn’t.

It originated from an early episode of Fighbird, where the still frame portrays the anime’s main character pointing to a butterfly and asking “Is this a pigeon?”


is this a pigeon – original meme


Though this anime aired in the 90s, this frame suddenly became a meme in May of 2018. It became relatable because there were many noticeable instances in life where a person, company or organization would see something blatant in front of them, and draw a completely wrong and naive conclusion.
