wojack

noun Borrowing
A particular genre of meme images stemming from a base format of a simple line drawing depicting the head of a bald man. However, the images may depict a variety of types of persons – or even non-humans – in simple or grotesque representations.
 
The notion of image genres has been a fascinating, though not unknown, aspect of internet meme culture. One previously abundant example would be variations of the character Pepe the Frog drawn in an array of poses and styles to convey simple or complex emotions. The term wojack is most likely a borrowing of the Polish word wójak meaning ‘solider, grunt’, perhaps connecting to the idea of culture or meme warfare.
Etymology : Borrowing from Polish wójak
