I love Korra because it satiates my animation appetite until the next season of MLP.

And it was when she said “I can Airbend” that the greatest animated show to grace Nickelodeon in years went completely BONKERS in the wrong direction.
Has potential, and it’s certainly become a meme in our own workplace. But of course, that’s not really a valid method of measuring memes, just saying that it has gotten around in my vicinity. I’m not sure if it’ll actually carry on after the movie is released, though, so I’m wait-and-see on this one…
I’m downloading more RAM with this method right now!
That printer didn’t stand a chance.
Fus Ro D’awwww…
All tremble before the Furred Reich.
No kidding Chris Rock thinks voice acting is easy.
He only voiced one character, and it was his normal speaking voice. Hey, Chris, maybe you can talk about how easy it is when you can fool the public into thinking eight different characters are done by eight different people. You’ve got seven more to go.
Point is, Chris Rock was hired because they wanted his regular voice. They wanted his CELEBRITY. They wanted people to hear that and not think “oh, this character is a quiet socially awkward bookworm with a beautiful heart,” or “this is a cranky old wife who has to oppressively babysit her husband.” Nor did they want them thinking “wow, totally psychotic girlfriend sidekick of a crimeboss kingpin,” or “brooding mysterious superhero prominent in dark magic” or “stereotypical fantasy princess with a penchant for flippant racism.”
No, they want to hear a loud annoying zebra and think “that’s Chris Rock.”
FYI: Tabatha St. Germain is best zebra, btw.
So of course he thinks it’s easy. Because he hasn’t been challenged yet. He wasn’t hired for his talent or his range of voices. He was hired because of his ONE voice, do DO his one voice, and nothing more.
The smart thing to do would be to withhold judgment and speculation until more information comes in. So far, this appears to be just an iTunes edit. That is all we know. Based upon previous comments from both Hasbro and DHX Media, anybody who believes that Derpy is actually getting axed from the show are basing it off of their own kneejerk reaction to just one edited scene.
It happens. Especially in children’s television; it happens a lot. However, the changes are usually done individually, not globally, as such sweeping changes made to ALREADY COMPLETED episodes would be far too costly.
Chill, peeps. It’s just a show. “The Last Round-Up” was an awesome episode, too. An edit made to just ONE MINUTE doesn’t negate the awesomeness of the remaining TWENTY-ONE minutes that follow. Better to have 96% of an episode intact than have all 100% banned into obscurity.
It’s deliciously ironic how UNHELPFUL these vague rebuttals are. Way to validate the meme, bro.
I call bull. I can count several instances of this happening to myself and many others, and I’m positive “family emergency” wasn’t the case for every single one of them.
Also, I am rolling on the ceiling, gurgling with euphoric ecstasy, at how awful this “teacher’s” grammar is. No wonder kids these days can’t speak English properly.
On top of that, this “teacher” admits they have perpetrated this. Way to TOTALLY VALIDATE the image there, genius. Students don’t care WHY you’re missing, they’re just peeved THAT YOU’RE NOT THERE TO HELP THEM.
That’s what makes this meme UNHELPFUL HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER. You, sir or ma’am (or fraud), are UNHELPFUL. You said you would offer help, you abandoned your obligation, and regardless of the validity of your excuse, the fact still remains YOU WERE NOT THERE TO HELP THEM; ergo UNHELPFUL.
God, I’m loving these meme more and more.
The technical inadequacy of the average high school teacher is absolutely mind-boggling. As they say, those who can’t do…teach. And those who suck at teaching…have tenure, na-na-naah, na-naah, naah.
How much I’m counting my blessings right now.
Like any other teenager, I mouthed off, run off, stayed up late, snuck booze, smokes, even some hard stuff, tiptoed the tightrope of the law, and used the Internet to badmouth my dad at every twist, turn, corner, alcove, and textbox I could get my fingertips on. I hated him for how he’d snoop around my stuff, block Internet access, monitor my PC activity with ghost software, track my cell phone, and enslave me with an oppressive checklist of chores and jobs around the house.
I was what you’d consider a waste, a filthy sack of douchebag teenager, always acting out and doing everything in my power to irritate, anger, and infuriate my old man.
And not once did he take a pistol to my stuff, let alone break it. He would hide it, stash it out of my reach, put it in a storage unit, or donate it to charity. But he never pelted it with bullets.
Eventually, I leveled out, and grew to appreciate that fact about him, and now I respect him tremendously for having the restraint. Contrarily, this father could’ve done any of the above measures, but instead of using his words and proper means of punishment to make his point, he goes overboard to psychotic levels. Maybe I’m not as blessed as I think I am, maybe I’m just ordinary, but if this man’s approach to pistol-laden parenting becomes the norm, then I sincerely fear for our future generations.

A day that will forever live in infamy for this reason, and no other reason at all.
So his right hand is gripping her by the…
You’re…going to LOOOOVE MEEEEE!
It doesn’t matter whether you can vote twice, thrice, or a million times for the same GOP candidate. It doesn’t change the fact that regardless of who you vote for, they’re all purporting the exact same platform and political strategy. Even candidates as radical as Ron Paul are still shackled to the GOP’s hivemind ideologue.
Case in point, I voted Obama in 2008 because I wanted a different breed of democrat, one who didn’t buckle under pressure or resort to trivial tax-raising initiatives or wasteful spending. I wanted a candidate with promise and creativity. And Obama had it in excess. But he was still shackled to the whims of the democrat party, and with it, all the flaws I hoped he’d overcome.
It doesn’t matter. The system is a complete joke. As long as we have checks and balances, and the President doesn’t have as much influence as the legislative branch, we could have Rainbow friggin’ Dash for President and we’d only see them as a facade for their supporting base.
The true hypocrisy of the image stems from the fact that the EPA was signed into existence by Republican President Richard Nixon. Judging by the context of this image, I doubt the author even knew that…
Now, if only it was Batman on Fluttershy over the droopy-necked corpse of a grizzly bear…
Words cannot describe how abhorred I am at this. Not at the fact that this is a completely unprofessional dolt working customer service, but because we live in a world with a rampant pool of unemployed persons far more qualified to handle customer service than this meaty no-neck jockstrap bully…and this guy is the one who got the job.
I’m glad he got canned. I’m sure he’s gotten his welcome to the Internet, but I’ll gladly extend his welcome to the unemployment system. After this, his best bet is to drive his cacophonous rice rocket full speed into a concrete wall and hope he can siphon some extra funds for protein shakes on disability, because there is no way any firm will sign him onto a payroll after this.
Talk about a phenomenal way to go out.
But there is a happy story to this. A very happy story. An abysmal tosser gets the boot, and a more capable, considerate soul will start receiving his paycheck. Internet, I am proud for outing and completely ruining this guy. Let it be a lesson that in a world as interconnected as our’s (not to mention vigilant) customers will NOT get pushed around, and they have far more power than they used to. They don’t need courts, warrants, wiretaps, or legal procedures to throw a bully off their pulpit. No.
They just need to give him a bit of “Free PR.”
I wonder if the popular media realizes Rebecca Black isn’t ridiculed because she’s popular, she’s popular because she’s ridiculed. Can’t feel sorry for somebody who made millions off of making something so awful it’s hilarious, but it does make me feel a little disheartened that one of the defining characteristics of 2011 was the “becoming a celebrity through others’ scorn” phenomenon that is Rebecca Black. Does this mean that 2012 will be full of similar aspiring musicians making crappy music on purpose to piggyback on a similar phenomenon? I hope not.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY FIRE RUBIES!
Haters gonna hate.
