Oprah firewalker picture destined for Internet greatness

Oprah: The next queen of the memes?
Last week, Oprah tweeted a photo of herself walking across hot coals as motivational speaker Tony Robbins cheered from the sidelines.

The context of this photo is not important. (If you must know, she was participating in one of Robbins’ “Unleash Your Life” seminars.) What’s important is Oprah’s rather spectacular expression and arms position, which is rather reminiscent of the Leonardo Dicaprio strutting meme.

The good people at Buzzfeed have asked their commenters to get the meme ball rolling and create images of “Oprah Running Away From Things.” Check out the original image below, and some images from what I hope is an emerging meme over at Buzzfeed.
