The fad began on September 27, 2005 when MasterSitsu created "Michael Moore is too easy to make fun of". The site showed Moore presenting a speech while moving his arms up and down on the podium. The gif image was synced with Homer Simpson's quote "Where's my Burrito". The site appeared to then show Moore addressing a group of people asking where is his burrito. The site quickly became popular and fad sites started to pop up. Many other Moore sites would later spawn, often with a burrito involved, or alterations to the orginal image.

Michael Moore is Perplexed
In 2009, Michael Moore got back into the top 5 with a site called Michael Moore on YTMND.
