About

"Why Not Visit?" Edits refer to a series of photoshops advertising various locations. The photoshops use six pictures, each inaccurately named, a la the Better Names For Things meme. The photoshops became incredibly popular on me_irl in early March, 2017.

Origin

On March 6th, 2017, Weird Facebook page Welcome To My Meme Page[1] posted the first of four mock-tourist brochure photoshops that utilized "Better Names For Things"-esque naming conventions. The first advertised the ocean with such attractions as "blobl blobl" and "Father Pelligrini" (shown below). It gained about 3,000 likes and reactions and over 4,000 shares.


Come see the OCEAN we got spikes scrundles blobl blobl Father Pellegrini wanted men whales

Spread

The page created more variations on the theme, all of which were posted to me_irl in the coming days. The most popular advertised the forest and gained over 14,800 points (shown below, left).

Dozens more posts appeared on me_irl in the following days, which led to coverage from The Daily Dot.[2] They confirmed with welcometomymemepage that they created the meme, who stated:

“It came from a lot of different memes where people would list a category of things, like animals, fruits, or any collection of objects and give them silly names. The sort of meme has been around for a while. All I did was start grouping them by biome.”
