Original YTMND:
Osaka Osaka! (See, it's clever because it's Osaka and she's in Osaka.)  
Worthy spinoffs:

Osaka, real name Ayumu Kasuga, is a rather dim-witted character from the anime Azumanga Daioh. She is known for images featuring her vacant expression and acts of stupidity. There have been many fads based off the character.

Throwing the Shoe

The first one to be popular is a gif featuring her kicking her shoe off into the street. In the anime, the shoe is carried off by a fast-moving truck. This sequence is often replaced by other outcomes, such as the falling shoe resulting in an exploding ship, a different vehicle picking up the shoe, or a hydrogen bomb. See Osaka Shoe Kick for more information.


Another fad that elevated Osaka to common YTMND knowledge was the Technologic fad that showed a looping .gif image of Osaka that synced easily with the Daft Punk song "Technologic". See Technologic for more information.


Osaka can also be seen in the "Azumanga Rave" fad, in where the "Bonklers," the lowest scoring people in the series (Tomo, Kagura, and Osaka) do a weird dance. An annonymous user edited the image to include flashing lights and glowsticks, thus turning it into a rave. This image has been used countless times.
