No... Seriously. What is it?
"What is air" is a forced meme that originated on Tumblr as a catchall response to lulz. The implication is that the subject at hand is sooooo lulzy, the reader completely forgets how to breathe, thus prompting the response "WHAT IS AIR" or some variation thereof. Of course, given that Tumblr is populated by 16 year old girls, cancer, and fail, they have successfully destroyed their own meme, like a rabbit that eats its own young.
Birth of a Stillborn Meme
Right now you are probably digging out your eyes and screaming, "Wow, that is fucking annoying! Where the fuck did something this insipid come from?" Truth is, noone knows. Even the guys who operate and maintain Tumblr don't know. Its a goddamn clusterfuck of a mystery.

Beating a Dead Horse
In Tumblr's continued efforts to be more like its cancerous older brother, a series of raids were staged against Omegle and 4chan's /b/ forum, waving their new meme around like a flaccid exhibitionist's penis.
As the cancer progressed, Tumblr users somehow got it into their heads that they were LIKE OMFG EPIC TROLLS LOL. So last thursday, Tumblr staged a raid against Omegle using reblogged image macros to spread the word. The plan took the form of an ill conceive DDoS attack, but instead of crashing Omegle's servers, they only succeeded in annoying its lurkers.
Writhing in ecstasy after their perceived victory over the worthy opponent, Omegle, Tumblr decided that it was ready for bigger game. So Tumblr users launched their next series of raid related image macros, setting the 4chan raid date for November 15, 2010. This of course would consist of spamming "WHAT IS AIR", "U MAD", and other stolen memes. While some /b/tards raged hard, thus validating Tumblr's shit poor attempt at raiding, most Anon ignored the spam until admins set up an autoban that swiftly caught most would be trolls. Anyone posting "WHAT IS AIR" or the word Tumblr was given a polite warning, showing once again what decent people the 4chan community really are!
