We’ve all had hours of fun on the Internet just looking at memes and wasting our lives away behind our electronic device of choice. When these ordinary people got turned into an extraordinary symbol of laughter, their lives changed. Let’s take a look at some meme heroes and what they look like now.
Sammy Griner’s mom posted this picture back in 2007, when Sammy was a wee lad of 11 months old. The buzz generated by the picture brought up enough money to pay for his dad’s kidney transplant, saving his life in the process.

This picture was taken by the mother of Blake Boston, or Scumbag Steve as he’s called now.
