Look, we don't control memes, we just let them consume our lives until there's nothing left but a soulless husk. That being said, the Ultra Instict Shaggy meme has completely taken everything over and as the petition to get this beloved Scooby-Doo character into Mortal Kombat 11 continues to gain traction, the game director himself has something to contribute:

Laughing emoji aside, we're here for it. I mean, come on -- weirder things have happened in the Mortal Kombat universe and plus -- the dude could just eat his opponents like he eats everything else. It's the perfect KO. Fans of the fighter couldn't help but to weigh in because this is the Internet and anything is possible:
Shaggy: I, like, heard a little about the realms combining from Velma.
Sonya: Really? What happened?
Shaggy: I don’t remember much, I was full force on a double sundae sandwich with extra hot sauce.— JFCA||Ajaxx (@Th3_Ajaxx) February 1, 2019

Whether it will actually happen remains to be seen, but hey -- anything is possible and the power of the community can be intense. It's good to see Boon in on the joke though, he's definitely been having a hilarious time over on the last few days on his Twitter:
