Soon, a popular online meme, usually features a creepy image of a person, animal or thing peering out of a dark space or hovering in the background, with the word “Soon” overlaid on the image. It is meant to imply a sense of impending doom or approaching disaster.
It started off with the following image from I Can Has Cheezburger, posted back in April of 2007. Then, we were given this little treat, titled “Honey Bear Sweet Honey Bear” by Brock Davis.

This lead to the inevitable spread of the meme throughout the internet, and SOON everyone was doing it. Some of the images don’t even have to say “Soon” on them, and just get by with the implication of the emotion.
