A New Japanese Meme Involves People Comparing Baby's Arms To Bread

The new Japanese meme, fresh out the oven.

Posted on April 15, 2016, at 6:36 a.m. ET

Parents on Japanese social media are comparing their babies to a popular snack bread.

Twitter: @chibachogori

"Is this it?"

People started using the hashtag #我が子の最強ちぎりパン画像 or #MyBaby’sGotTheBestBreadPhoto.

Twitter: @nj_jun

"This is the best hashtag lol."

The snack is a popular "pull-apart bread" available in Japanese 7-Eleven stores.

Twitter: @schwarzeKatze84

"I created a tag, hope everyone else will take a look at it.

Am I the only one who feel that this will become the greatest tag?"

The hashtag began after one parent noticed the similarity between the food and her child's arms.

Twitter: @NorikoNiizuma

"My second child’s bread, 100 days old."

The trend follows in the time-honored tradition of Japanese social media users comparing their children to food, whether that be rice balls or mochi.

Twitter: @echo00voice

"So plump…want to touch this all day long."

Twitter: @_AP1_

"This tag is such a solace! I couldn’t help to post the photo from last year!"

Honestly, the best part of having a baby must be showing off how cute they are on social media.

Twitter: @ysaksmz

"I must participate in this!"
