tmo10: BarkingUnicorn: Leave out? In true Fark fashion, you have a dupe in there!

lol. i'm an idiot. fixing, thanks. and hoping i don't get fired.


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.

Albert Lake: Editor's opinion: The funniest ones have always started in the comments at Fark.com

Oh Sweet Jesus, thanks for that! I've had a rough week and really needed a laugh. Fark is to memes what Florida is to old people.


Maybe, but it still has a better signal:noise ratio. As large, comment-driven sites go, it's far and away the smartest. Yes, I said that with a straight face.

No, seriously. Stop laughing at me, dammit.

I am sooo tempted to send this to my fwd:FWD: FWD: family members. Typical white suburban Christians/ longtime listerners; first-time callers/ Fox acolytes. At least my mother went to a food bank once per year to sort out the expired items, but mostly to stock up on her supply of righteousness to be disbursed the other 364 days. Everyone else in my family was of the "fark you; got mine" variety.

I see meme as a heralded saying, thought, or perhaps, visualized idea, that resonates with an intertubed audience, such that, this created entity takes shape, builds itself within fractured communitites, and creates...

Thus:

A meme is born,

much like a star,

or a blackhole...

From the gas of humanity wired and communicable.

A mind virus, really.

P.S. You're welcome.

gunther_bumpass: Indubitably: gunther_bumpass: NorCalLos: 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?

Not anymore. A meme is no longer a shared thought or idea.

It is now a picture with words on it - ideally humorous in intent and presentation (but often neither).

Drives me farking crazy.

A picture is not the definition of a meme, sir.

Read a book.

I know that. But try telling that to the mouth-breathing farkwits on reddit.

Well, it was just a general derogatory phrase until South Park used it.

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