Remember Disaster Girl? She grew up (14 Photos)

Here at the Chive, we have a lot of respect for the meme. One of the very first memes was created by photographer Dave Roth in 2008 when he photoshopped a picture of his daughter, Zoe, into a photo of a burning house. Since then many incarnations of the firestarter have scorched the net. Zoe has grown up a bit (pics below) and today we tip our hats to one of the founding fathers daughters of the meme. Here's to you Zoe!

    I'd tap that.

    • The Dude

      Pedobear jokes = funny

      Real life pedos = sick bastards who I wish were castrated

          He probably refreshed the page and clicked like over 9000 times!

    • Chet the dog

      How about I tap your head with an engine block?

      “I’d tap that”

      I think that he means OJ.

    • Mike

      Shamefully, I admit that I'd tap that too. I just prefer a tighter fit, that's all.

    She still scares the shit out of me. I know, deep down, she is capable of immeasureable evil.

      “She still scares the shit out of me. I know, deep down, she is capable of immeasureable evil.”

      Of course. She’s a female.

    • @asaadhutchinson

      you're retarded, you can't judge a book by its cover. It was the firefighters that burned the house down as part of a training exercise and it was Zoes' father who took that pic.

  • The Dude

    Love it. It’s still hard to beat the orginal

    • FartFace

      yeah, #5 is the worst disaster of these by far..

    • Mook

      All grown up huh…

      So she is what 8 now instead of 5?

      DAaaaamn shes almost legal to sex up!

      • LOLisNotLaughing

        Listen up asshole. This is a child. I don’t care who the hell you think you are. That shit’s not funny.

        Now the pics themselves…she’s cuter than a bug’s ear and I’m glad folks had fun with the photoshopping. Miss…if your parents read some of these comments to you…I bet you have a great imagination. Keep having fun. 😉

      • Jay

        10 more years Brah!

        and apparently LOLinNotLaughing takes his internets very seriously. I mean, he called Mook an asshole, thats srs business right?

    Yes, the original is the only one that has any impact.

    When I saw “she grew up” I thought she’d be all nubile college chick with hard nips. You just ripped me off, I want that 45 seconds back and a bandaid for my finger that got blistered frantically scrolling down looking for the nubile……….nevermind but you get what I’m saying right?

    • 2400cc

      Uhhh…. if the original was in 2008, you knew she would only be 2 years older….

  • use sucks

    those were shit the only one that was good was the house burning one.

  • ydw505

    cute girl………..
    but definitely i rather not to get close to her within 50 miles

  • dr

    #5 FTW!

  • Anonymous

    Wow, #12 is a screen shot from Columbine…that’s…really funny?


    • BillyBlaze

      Yeah 12 is a screencap of those pussies Eric Harris and Dylan Kleibolt. Fuck those cowards.

  • Dr. Dr.

    Wow, grew up a whole 2 years….. ::rolls eyes::

  • Gordon of Hesselink

    should the other girl in #14v feel in danger?

  • poison

    #5 and #9 rock!

  • DanbyRaider

    #12 is not funny. I don’t think that situation will ever be something you can joke about.

  • getYourFactsSraight

    the original picture is not photoshopped, he simply took the picture of a house fire with his daughter in the foreground.

  • HellHathNoFirestarter

    You’re the firestarter, twisted firestarter…

  • Robert

    Most are pretty funny, except for #12. That’s not something to joke about at all. I don’t see why it was even posted :/

  • MichaelGS

    Before seeing the date of the original, did anyone else expect “Disaster Girl” grown up to be our very own HHNF? shes crazy enough 😉

  • Jeff C. Satterwhite

    I agree with several above about #12. That may be enough to have me stop coming to this site..actually, i believe it is.

  • A. Dominick

    The first photo itself is real, not photo shopped. Dave Roth took it when firemen were burning a house on their block for a demonstration. There are other photos to back it up, and he has a blog documenting it.

  • Trololololo

    As others have said, the first picture is real. Roth didnae no photoshop, ye get me? Yeah. Well.

    Probably time for an article edit.

  • @Ambient_Skater

    number 12 is my favorite 🙂

  • LukeTheTerrible

    I have to wonder about the wisdom of any father posting photos of his pre-pubescent daughter on the internet – especially on a site like this. Some of the comments already posted are my evidence, if you needed more than just common sense. She is a very pretty little girl, and therefore she should be hidden from society at large as thoroughly as possible.

  • Andy

    The original wasn't photoshopped, it was real:
