Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn in on Wednesday with a limited number of guests and heavy security deployment. It was also a star-studded affair - with everyone from pop culture icons and Hollywood A-listers to former Presidents and lawmakers in attendance.

But for those who live and breathe memes, Senator Bernie Sanders was clearly the star of the show. Bundled into winterwear fit for an Arctic winter, Sanders appeared quite glum, sitting on a chair away from everybody else on the bleachers. From the oversized mittens and his body language to the fact that he is seated in isolation - everything about the photo of Sanders appears to have tickled netizens' fancy. And since then, people have photoshopped Sanders onto every imaginable location and made him a part of every new meme.

Now, it would seem that you can do it too. According to one Twitter user who had taken it upon himself to up the ante, there is now a website that lets people "Bernie in places using google maps street view".

Clicking on the link opens a site that asks you to enter an address or website where you want Bernie Sanders to travel to. Unfortunately, all locations do not seem to be available, and our test run could not unearth possible locations in India.

Nonetheless, Sanders appeared perched on a gate at the Eccleston Yard when one typed in London as the location and he was seated on the pavement as cars raced by when one searched for Bernie in New York.
