About

I'd Like to See North Korea is a line from a series of image macros in which people post pictures of a fictional or humorous army with the caption a variation on the catchphrase "I'd like to see North Korea try," implying that the fictional army is more powerful than North Korea's.

Origin

The earliest known instance of this meme occurred on July 28th, 2016. Twitter user @LILDOOBIESKIGOD[1] posted a picture of an uncooked, raw chicken sitting upright. They captioned the tweet (shown below), "I'd like to see North Korea try with this on our side 😈"

On August 5th, Twitter user @_absoluteweeb_[2] posted a variation on the meme, changing the image to a still of the bees from Bee Movie swarming (shown below, right).
