It began, as these things so often do, on Twitter.

More than two hours into Sunday night’s Oscars ceremony, Jezebel writer Bobby Finger posted video of Jennifer Garner with a simple question: “What realization did Jennifer Garner just come to?”

In the three-second clip from the show, Garner applauds along with the rest of the audience before a look of vague concern crosses her face and she slowly stops clapping.

The internet was quick to offer suggestions, resulting in more than 3,000 replies to Finger’s tweet alone.

But none of the suggestions could possibly have the insight of Garner’s own contributions to the nascent meme, submitted by the actress in an Instagram story Monday night.

“Congrats to ‘Shape of Water.’ Maybe I should date a fish,” Garner said in her first pass at the meme, a reference to the newest best picture winner and maybe even her divorce from Ben Affleck.

“Hey, Jimmy Kimmel what’s in your wallet,” Garner queried in attempt No. 2, a nod to her affiliation with Capital One. “Wait, where is my wallet?”

Finally, Garner quipped about her upcoming HBO series “Camping” from Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner.

“Can’t wait to work with Lena Dunham. Wait, did I sign a nudity waiver?”

Congratulations, Jennifer. You’re the internet’s new girlfriend!

(She’d probably be better off with the fish.)
