This intern fell asleep on his second day at work and became a glorious meme

A new hero.

A REDDITOR WHO goes by the name of TheOrangeDuke had just started his internship at a tech company in the States.

On the second day, he was so tired that he fell asleep at his desk. His new colleagues thought this was gas so they snapped a photo.

When he woke up he saw the funny side too, and shared the story with the internet

There’s the photo that one of his co-workers took – which he then uploaded to Reddit.

The combination of a gas office story and an excellent photo got the internet’s creative juices flowing.

He was quickly turned into a brilliant meme

He’s taken it well by sharing his story on the Today I Fucked Up subreddit and told The Huffington Post:

One of the associates noticed me sleeping. And it just went downhill from there!

He’s now the internet’s new hero
