Khajiit has wares is a memetic phrase, originating from The Elder Scrolls series, which features a feline race, the Khajiit, who are known for their roguery and extraordinary bartering skills.
“Khajiit has wares” is a line from the 2011 installation of the video game series; The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and the full quote goes as “Kajiit has wares, if you have coin”.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released on November 11th, 2011.
The game features several members of the Khajiit race, who may be traded with and many of whom begin the negotiations with the line “Khajiit has wares, if you have coin”.
The popularity of Skyrim has led to the creation of a large amount of image macro memes, featuring the caption “Khajiit has wares” paired with cat photos.
Users would also post photos of their own cats in various settings and positions, with the captions.
The feline race of the fantasy world remains a popular element online, with numerous other references to the Khajiit, such as skooma, and the phrase Khajiit stole nothing.
