About

Mad Karma with Jim Cramer is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photoshopped image of Jim Cramer, former hedge fund manager and the host of the MSNBC business news program Mad Money. On Reddit, the character is often used as an indicator of an up-and-coming meme or a trending discussion topic, similar to the use of Imminent Ned and The Rent is Too Damn High.

Origin

On June 11th, 2012, Redditor HomeButton submitted a post titled “Mad Karma with Jim Cramer” to the /r/AdviceAnimals[1] subreddit, which featured a screenshot of Cramer hosting Mad Money with the headline news ticker edited to list trending memes on Reddit instead of stock quotes. The image macro was captioned with “Dump all your karma in pictures of feet” (shown below), referencing a foot photograph post that had reached the front page the day before.[2] Prior to being archived, the post received over 4,300 up votes and 100 comments.

On June 21st, Redditor khdutton submitted an image macro to /r/AdviceAnimals[4] calling attention to the rise of the Confession Bear advice animal series (shown below, right), which gained upwards of 4,100 up votes and 80 comments prior to being archived.



On September 30th, Redditor pkfc9 posted an image macro to the /r/AdviceAnimals[6] subreddit calling attention to the popularity of baked goods with decorations inspired by the television drama series Dexter (shown below, left).

On April 20th, 2013, Redditor skyrimnerd submitted an image macro to /r/AdviceAnimals[7] which referenced the popularity of posts praising the Boston police department in the aftermath of the 2013 Boston marathon bombings (shown below, right).

I don’t trust that Cramer guy.

He’ll be saying stuff like “Buy Confession Bear”.

Then it will crash. And he’ll be acting like nothing happened, saying that his words were taken out of context.

What a clown.

The concept of Karma being a type of stock is… strangely intriguing.
Sounds like it could be a fun game of some kind.

A stock market game, but themed with Karma and websites.
If done right, it wouldn’t even be cancerous. You could totally make it a comedic thing.

Hmmmm…
