I've seen well over 200 different ones. Funny how some little thing can take off so fast. I'm guessing by next week , it will be gone and a new fad takes over.

I have to admit I like the mittens and the anorak. :LOL:

I've seen some really amazing ones, maybe we could make a meme dump here to show how creative people are getting with this.

My favorite thing is that Bernie's campaign site started selling a sweatshirt with this image on it for $45 apiece, and 100% of the proceeds are going to the Vermont Meals on Wheels program that delivers hot meals to the elderly. I'm waiting for them to come back in stock.

I've collected over 50 of them , but most feature him in older American TV shows and movies and I'm not sure they would make sense to younger Japanese.

Lots of Ghibli-based Bernies out there.




In case, anyone wants to experiment with Photoshop, use the bernie_large.png attached to this post (transparent background).
