It’s like no one actually cares that little kids were killed today, it’s just “don’t take my guns away!” or “take everybody’s guns away!”. Sick.
+1 Confirm but change pic. Also I wouldn’t consider it a “meme”. But I do think it’s a notable enough…concept? to deserve its own article.
The Forced is strong in this one.
The “original” example implies it’d been around for a while even then. I wonder how far back it really goes.
I feel like this is forced.
And why is KYM posting a girl’s Facebook pictures after she disabled her account? Creepy.
I think what happened is people on Facebook who were new to “memes” took the Wonka thing out of context and started just using it for whatever and it stuck. Checked the You Must Be New Here page, the Wonka image is downplayed and uses a super old cat picture without text as the main image. Weird.
+1 Facebook is making things complicated
+1 change title to “Brace Yourselves ___ is Coming” (tv show doesn’t meme) and Confirm that sucka cause I’ve totally seen it before and the pixels.
This started in 2007 but they just started talking about it on the news two months ago? Wow.
Isn’t this “Everything Went Better Than Expected” with different text? Or something like that. Either way, pretty sure rageface is taken.
Slenderman is a meme (but not exactly a cryptid), and mysterious animal corpses can go viral, but I don’t think I’d count Cryptozoology itself as an Internet Meme, it’s much bigger than that.
+1 Deadpool or at least Work
If I’m reading the graph right, it looks like interest peaked around the time this was posted and sharply declined right down to zero.
I agree, not a meme, or at least not an Internet meme as far as I’m aware. Good job on the research though, I’ve always wondered what it meant.
It was a funny scene, but I’ve never seen it used on the Internet. Ever. And with (at least) two other memes that are just Futurama screenshots and a caption, I gotta say it feels forced.
+1 Deadpool a band is not a meme
-originated a little over a month ago
-never seen it before now
-75% identical to pre-existing (sub)meme
lol this is not a meme +1 deadpool or merge
Yeah, Colbert pretended to run for president last time too.
“Search queries for “google plus” and “google+” saw a significant spike starting on June 28th, 2001, the official launch day”
At least give it a distinct name, even if it’s just “the bacon meme”. Because otherwise, people are eating internet memes for breakfast, and that’s just weird.
There’s already an article for SOPA, why do we need a separate one for this? Especially since that day is like, over and stuff.
Are all news stories memes now?
I always thought this was an older meme cause of the way the picture looked, kinda low-resolutionish. Either way I like it.
People actually…use this?
I’ve never seen it.
I saw/used this a bit back in 2010, surprised it was just now added.
I’ve never seen this before except today when I came on and saw it on a couple of Kym-original pictures. So..I feel this meme is forced. Badly. Unless it’s a real meme somewhere else and I missed it. Also, video games are not memes, at least give it a unique name.
