Who is weed, really?

Who is weed? 

I am weed. Are you weed? If you have to ask, you are not weed. 

Machine Gun Kelly is weed (obviously). Pete Davidson, who recently impersonated Machine Gun Kelly — his real-life BFF — on an episode of Saturday Night Live? Also weed. 

If you've made it this far and are lost, you are not weed. Weed knows that this absurd meme is a reference to Megan Fox's first encounter with weed (Machine Gun Kelly) — their meet-cute, if you will — which the couple recounted for their British GQ Style cover story. 

It went like this: 

Megan Fox: "You smell like weed." 

Machine Gun Kelly: "I am weed."

"Then, I swear to God, he disappeared like a ninja in a smoke bomb," Fox recalls of their clandestine first encounter at, of all places, a GQ party. The pair didn't reconnect until a few years later while filming 2020's ​​Midnight in the Switchgrass, and they've been attached at the hip ever since.

The internet, unable to leave well enough alone, had a field day with the question of who, really, is weed, inserting the dialogue into various infamous romances.

Not every couple is one-half weed, though. Harry Potter, for example — not weed. (Draco Malfoy is weed.) Ross Geller is definitely not weed. But every character Michael Cera has ever played? Weed. 

I hope this clears things up for everyone! Now, excuse me while I disappear like a ninja in a smoke bomb.
