In another tantalizing episode of Meme Review, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has explained his true feelings on Baby Yoda and the subsequent meme shenanigans that have followed – and how he would destroy it once and for all.

Meme Review is one of PewDiePie’s most popular video series — where he makes his opinion known on the most topical and popular memes, as one of the most knowledgeable names in meme culture.

Now, with ‘Baby Yoda’ appearing in the Disney+ exclusive Star Wars show, The Mandalorian, the little green alien has taken the internet by storm as fans have fallen in love with the creature.

Not everyone is a fan, though, and Pewds made it very clear in his episode of Meme Review on December 3 that he does not approve of its existence.

Going into detail about how he would remove Baby Yoda from the internet once and for all, he says: “I would eat Baby Yoda, if that’s what it takes to get rid of him.

“If someone came and knocked on my door right now and said: ‘Hey, we have Baby Yoda, we’ve buttered him up in oil, we’ve fermented him for three days straight, he’s still going to taste like sh*t, but if you eat him, he will go away forever,’ I wouldn’t even hesitate… I would inhale Baby Yoda.”

Obviously, PewDiePie is joking. Or, maybe he’s not – as he seems quite genuinely annoyed at the existence of Baby Yoda – so may be willing to go to extreme lengths to rid the internet of it entirely.

Elsewhere in the video, he refuses to even rate the “Oh, you like…?” memes, but is clearly not in favor of them, nor the examples showcased in the article he takes them from.

Pewds also jokes at the expense of Papa John’s founder John Schnatter, who claimed that he had eaten 40 pizzas in 30 days.

Recently, Baby Yoda has been unavoidable if you’re anywhere near the internet. Even Call of Duty League team, New York Subliners, used the meme to roast rival CDL team, Dallas Empire.

Luckily for PewDiePie, memes don’t often last too long, so Baby Yoda will likely disappear in the next couple of weeks and be shunted to the back of the queue. Probably a much more sanitary solution than eating him.

Smash Melee star Ludwig Ahgren sent a Pokemon card Twitch stream into a meltdown when he pulled a 1st Edition Dragonite worth up to $10k. The gaming pro scored the rare collectible after streamer Trainwreckstv gave him the pack.

Pokemon cards have taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch as viewers flock to see their favorite personalities chase after the rarest Nintendo collectibles.

A live Trading Card Game box opening hosted by streamer Mizkif and his org One True King went off the rails on November 22 when Smash pro Ludwig scored a rare Dragonite that could have been Trainwrecks’.

Ludwig scores rare Pokemon card from 1999

The Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded for nothing on school playgrounds decades ago can now sell for as much as a house. The hobby has also become a major hit on sites like Twitch, with streamers buying sealed booster boxes from the 90s to open live for viewers.

On November 22, Twitch star Mizkif broke open 1st Edition sealed packs from the 1999 Fossil set. Those attending the event lost their minds when pro gamer Ludwig scored a 1st Edition Dragonite after streamer Trainwreckstv gave his pack to him.

The moment went viral due to the Twitch personality’s generosity backfiring. “Dude I swear to God if I said no to this pack to be fair and nice and its a good pack I want it back. Ludgwig, if this is good it’s my pack. If it’s bad, it’s your pack,” he exclaimed moments before the card was pulled. Unfortunately, the booster he passed on contained the exact rare holographic he was chasing after.

After the excitement settled, the group felt bad for Train’s incredibly bad luck. Although the popular Twitch star wasn’t too bitter about it, laughing it off on Twitter. If nothing else, he should be applauded for his generosity.

According to recent sales of the item, a 1st Edition Dragonite can sell anywhere from $8k to 9.7k depending on the grading. Luckily for Ludwig, the item looked incredibly pristine, giving him a good chance at a PSA 10 grading.
