What is the Ohio Meme About?

Ohio is a state in the United States and it has a population of more than 11 million people.

It’s known as the “Buckeye State” because of its buckeye trees and its state flag is non-rectangular.

Ohio memes have recently risen in popularity on social media platforms.

On TikTok, there are a ton of “Can’t even x in Ohio” and “What’s going on in Ohio, bruh?” memes.

On Twitter, there are posts and comments saying “Only in Ohio”.

In this guide, you’ll learn what is the Ohio meme about and examples of these memes that went viral on TikTok.

What is the Ohio meme about?

The Ohio meme is about exaggerating how crazy and chaotic the state is.

From its unpredictable weather to its loony people—Ohio comes with all sorts of surprises.

The first viral meme about the state was a sign on a bus stop saying “Ohio will be eliminated”.

The photo instantly became a hit because of how senseless and comical it is.

Since its upload on Tumblr in 2016, the photo got over 119k notes (likes).

After the photo, an exploitable meme template called “Wait, It’s All Ohio? Always Has Been” was created.

The meme features two astronauts in space, one saying “Wait, it’s all Ohio” and the other pointing a gun toward him saying “Always has been”.

Sometime later, more realistic versions of the astronauts were created and people started using them in the meme.
