• running gag by grattiting "Kilroy was here“ everywhere across Europe. Even Hitler and Stalin investigated who Kilroy was, suspecting him to be a spy. It would later appear all over the world.

      This is wrong, Kilroy was a ship inspector in WWII who left this mark on ships he inspected. It just happened to catch on.

      James J. Kilroy was a shipyard inspetor who would write a note to himself that he had already inspected the rivets in the area. They were never painted over and became a legend as GI's would see his "notes" all over ships and equipment.

      there's more to the story Kilroy was a ship yard inspector or supervisor at the time riveters were paid by the rivet and would put marks on their last 2 rivets of their shift sneaky riveters would erase those marks so to discourage this Kilroy would mark Kilroy was here to let the next riveter know

      So I guarantee no one will see this but I saw this feature as I’m watching S10 E10 of Adventure time, at 2:05 Finn writes a note “BRB -Finn” and draws Kilroy in the corner...

      During the peace treaty that Stalin was at, they had specific out houses for all the world leaders built. He came out of his asking who Killroy was.

      It is believed that a ship inspector was the one to start this because he did not want to lose where he had already inspected.

    • BeepBeepPone
      This was made because a inspector named Kilroy, used to write them on ships and pieces of equipment that were already inspected. From this point on, many G.I.'s started to paint this graffiti across the world. If you saw it, you can bet that someone got there before you.

      In WW2 they paid riveters per rivet punched, in order to keep the workers from cheating on their paperwork, he would draw this with Kilroy peaking over the seam line with the nose wrapped around the last rivet of the day. Soldiers saw this symbol on the way over to the war and it caught on lol

    • Red_Panda_Enthusiast
      Rumor has it Stalin got carried away and killed most of his country because he thought everyone was Kilroy.

      In my basement, on a concrete block wall somebody spray painted that. I'm assuming it was my great grandfather because he was in WW2, but I don't know.

    • SweetAlaskanAssparagusTip
      It actually wasn’t a gag. It was a way we marked cities that the allies already mollywhopped, so that other advancing soldiers later on knew it was clear.

    • Edog573
      The best part was it was started by some guy who was putting rivets on ships, and they got payed by the rivet so he came up with the Kilroy in order to mark his rivets. Then the ships went into battle and people saw the rivets and started copying it. The soldiers added the Kilroy was here part.
      Edog573 19 dec
    • Samwinterfest
      It was also a symbol to troops coming up behind the front lines that they are on the right side of the battle and didn’t get lost/or end up behind enemy lines

      I would argue the first meme was "o.k." because back in the day people thought it was funny to make misspelled acronyms on purpose, and one day some jokester changed "alright confirmed" into to olright konfirmed" and shortnetend it to "o.k." it caught on, which makes it the oldest and longest meme
