When it comes to getting laughs, trust desi memes to give hilarious twists to anything and everything. While Bollywood content remains a hot pick most of the time, they are known to reinterpret any photo in a creative way, using it in a very apt situation.

Recently, a photo of a humongous monitor lizard climbing up a gate has got everyone hooked.

Indian Twitterati are busy using the picture of the reptile, peeking its face above the gate, to common situations that are known by all. From asking downstairs neighbours to return a piece of clothing that was blown away by the wind to asking if their parents have left the keys to the house behind, people are sharing typical desi things.

In case you’re wondering what’s the backstory of the viral meme fodder, well, it’s a picture from Malaysia. A Johor man, Long Cherng Yee, was surprised to see the huge intruder latched onto his front gate, seemingly not interested to cross over but just observing from outside after getting a better view. And that’s exactly what struck a chord with Indian memers as well.

“You might have pet dogs at home but I have a small ‘crocodile’ here!” the man had quipped while sharing the images on Facebook in 2019. His photos had gone viral even at the time and had created a big buzz online. The man had called the animal ‘mini Godzilla’.

He had shared another image of the visitor a few days later which had sparked many memes and jokes in the country at the time.

Now, after two years, desis on Twitter have rediscovered the viral photo and are using it in most Indian ways, making it extremely relatable for all.
