It is of that need that the douchebag meme we come to know as Scumbag Steve came to be. And what this piece of meme history is, besides always relevant, is an image macro series in which text depicting scummy, douchey behavior is placed on a photo of a young man standing at a door, wearing a fur jacket and a flat baseball hat, turned sideways of course.
