Ridiculously Photogenic Syrian Soldier

The Ridiculously Photogenic Syrian Soldier is ridiculously photogenic. And if you're wondering about the history behind this rocket-propelled stud-muffin, wonder no more:

When Reddit user bk533 posted a photo of a Free Syrian Army fighter carrying an rocket-propelled grenade and looking like a general badass to the social news site Tuesday, he or she didn't intend for the soldier to become yet another new meme.

The redditor just wanted "this good looking bastard to get some attention in case he gets killed by an authoritative dictator using chemical weapons in a last ditch effort to hang onto what little semblance of power he has left."

Despite bk533's best intentions, the Associated Press photo and the title of the post, "Ridiculously Photogenic Syrian Rebel," are on their way to meme stardom, thanks to more than 800 comments.
