I posted under ‘General’ originally which prolly wasn’t the right thing to do.. ..anyhow, I don’t know how or when.. but something tells me this one is going to meme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWw7WvsRHyU from 100k to 200k views past view hours. I think it’s appeal pretty much speaks for itself.

sorry.. haven’t been here in a while (forums changed a bit). I saw ‘hot internets’ was covered under ‘General’, so I dropped this here. sorry.. haven’t been here in a while (forums changed a bit).

Had to make a brief appearance to say: I don’t know how or when.. but something tells me this one is going to meme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWw7WvsRHyU
“Big ups” to Rocketboom for managing to get Weird Al on the show. Awesome. :D [and I was also amused to see my Geddan image behind Elspeth :} ]
These are all hilarious.
Is it just me or does grandmother’s affection look unwelcome?
@yatta hee hee :] Thank you and I should say that I’m honored that my image ‘made the wall’.
the poses are hilarious. :D
p.s. let us know where the paper is published so we can read it :)
I’m not an academic but here are my 2 cents off-hand: - Scope / Definition: If I were you I would try to set some scope around how you are defining “meme” also. As mentioned here memes are largely inside jokes but as you know this activity isn’t restricted to the internet. However, what most folks refer to as “memes” today are “internet memes”. The reason is that the internet enables the profuse replication of inside jokes and the concept of a “meme” itself has seen a rise in...

So, that being said, does anyone know the origin or identity of the amusement-park-ride-kid and “Janice”? It’s been floating out there on the ‘net for a while and I haven’t seen the answer to that question yet. I’m a little curious about “the rest of the story …” to this viral vid
p.s. thanks, Blubber – will do.
I second those remarks (Blubber = hilarious / “on-the-ball” with the memes) ..and he likes pbskids. @Blubber: Are you a Caillou fan? (being Canadian an’ all) :)
@Jostin – Ok. I’ll do some more when I get a free moment. (Although I may choose a different medium :P) @Chris – Thanks! :) I guess the best answer I have for your question is “holding the mouse really steady” :D
Here’s a sketch I just did on break, here at work, for Mr. Menning.. I did it in MSPaint tho so it wound-up looking like a Police suspect sketch.. :D “Have you seen this man? Contact local authorities at..”
