Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger not only hit some massive home runs on his way to winning a World Series this fall, but he also became a meme.

The 25-year-old hopped on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Thursday alongside teammate Clayton Kershaw to explain that, no, he's not out of it.

"Hey Cody, do people tell you you're high all the time?" Kimmel asked, comparing him to Spicoli (Sean Penn) from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."

"You look at me in the Little League World Series at 12 years old, I look faded," Bellinger said. "I was not smoking when I was 12, either. I'm not high. That's just how my face looks."

The meme has taken off like wildfire, often in the guise of Bellinger having some supposedly profound or deep thought and having his mind blown in the process.

Even with MVP and Rookie of the Year awards under his belt, it's too soon to say if Bellinger will be in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but he's been permanently enshrined as one of the all-time best memes.
