Blue Waffle is term for a fake disease, internet hoax, and shock image coined in 2008. Because of this meme, many people believed that "blue waffle" was an actual STD like HIV or gonorrhea (sometimes referred to as "the clap" for some reason). Trolls would tell victims to search for an image of a blue waffle on Google's Image Search, only to be surprised by a close-up shot image of a diseased vagina.

Shock sites were made in response to the popularity blue waffle was getting. Most mirrors consisted of just the image with a small description. The original picture originated on Documenting Reality.

The pictures show a yeast infection stained with an antibacterial triarylmethane dye known as crystal violet. In Trenton, New Jersey, a councilwoman named Kathy McBride fell victim to the hoax during a City Council meeting in 2013, when she received a concerned call from a resident asking what Trenton was doing to combat blue waffle disease.[1]

There are many variations of this site, including "Red Pancake" and "Giant Cheese Taco", showing a picture of a diseased anus, possibly infected with anal warts/HPV, and a picture of a diseased ulcerated vagina covered in yellow pus and blood respectively. All of these sites have shut down.
