I'm actually surprised you put yourself out there to Fark like that.

I think it's awesome. Good on you.

Needs a little more "so very scared", but you get a thousand internets for explicitly putting limecat next to the scary totmom lady.

Lol thanks. I miss Limecat. And I was bummed because I never bookmarked the original Clock Spider thread.
I was tempted to link to the thread here where the guy got his you know whats stuck in his chair, but could not imagine explaining that one to my boss on Monday morning. And I'm not so sure it qualifies as a meme.

But it does qualify as quite possibly the funniest thing I ever witnessed on the interwebs.

Well that should help this thread devolve rapidly.

My personal favorite, because I'm a fan of grammar train wrecks:

Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

Ripping on her employer is the perfect way to reassure her that putting herself out there was a good idea.

The StarWars kid didn't accidently leave the camera rolling, he knew full well that the camera was rolling.

That camera was borrowed from the audio/video department at his school.

What he FAILED to do is remove the tape from the camera before returning it to the department. The clerk just so happened to decide to view the tape at a later time and the rest is history.

Sorry subs, but I think you and the writer shat the bed. Isn't a meme more of a theme than an actual picture or video?

Don't worry, now that this has been greenlit, the hitcount is going to skyrocket, your boss is going to say, "Wow, you know what we need? More slideshows!" and your job is going to become a dark, pitiful, slideshow-producing pit of despair from which you will look jealously upon the unemployed. I can only hope you have six figures of student loan debt from an MFA in Creative Writing so that you can never leave this trap of your own making. Would that this punishment could be inflicted upon all slideshow-producers.

Only one comment at TFA so far and it includes a link that's just gotta be a rickroll.

Good jerb otherwise.

Richard Dawkins initially defined meme as a noun that "conveys the idea of a unit of cultural transmission, or a unit of imitation.

(From Wikipedia...)

LOLcats are definitely the best example, it's just become so universal that even chain-mailing grandmas make them.
