WHAT DOES BLUE WAFFLE MEAN?-bluewaffles-diseases.com

Blue Waffle is a fictional sexually transmitted infection (STI) that’s believed to both turn the vagina blue and damage it. It’s also said to introduce women who “get around” and/or their lack of hygienics. People say it only spreads from women to men.

WHERE DOES BLUE WAFFLE COME FROM?

Blue Waffle was originally a bait-and-switch shock website that was first uploaded in 2008, according to Know Your Meme, “and consisted of just a close-up picture of what resembles to be an infected vagina, with a small classification.” The bait part was a photo of a real waffle that was blue with the caption “Bet you can’t find me on Google Image Search.” This led people to search for the image, which necessarily led them to the graphic and embarrassing photo.

Google Trends shows original searches in November 2009, and the earliest Urban Dictionary entry is from June 2009. The most upvoted record reads: “Go to Google.com type in ‘” Blue waffle’ and then click the ‘I’m feeling lucky’ button. Then you’ll know what the fuck it means.” Other entries represent the fictional manifestations of the disease, essentially implying that women contract it and spread it.

The myth of the disease was disproven in 2011 by the Women’s Health Foundation. They had Dr. Amy Whitaker, Assistant Professor of Obstetrics/Gynecology at the University of Chicago Hospital, examine the viral photo. She proved that the disease was fake and that the image was photoshopped and/or the result of vaginal mutilation.
