what's the origin of the anne frank/helen keller meme?

Anne Frank didn't bomb Pearl Harbor.

That's Helen Keller, genius.

That's Helen Keller, genius.

In retrospect, this was probably red flag No. 1. But she was 22 and hadn't had too many job interviews, so I thought it seemed reasonable.

Rarely has an individual overcome such mountanous obstacles to attain such a vaulted place in history.

Helen Keller was an award winning author, respected philosopher and brilliant orater, in spite of the fact that she was a woman.

In China, a deaf dance troupe has been putting on the acclaimed Thousand Hands Guanyin performance for years, which was notably featured in the film Samsara.

I would love to see a documentary about Ann's fateful flight to attempt to cross the Atlantic. It would be interesting to see how a blind and deaf pilot made it as far as she did.

Know your meme


Basic humorous conflation that decades of separation allows us to make light humor around. There's some nasty evil jokes around these two people so be glad we just play with the Clerks mistake. Reading cheese graters, leaving the plunger in the toilet, and having lunch with Hitler are much darker jokes we avoid by staying light.

We also conflate Madonna and Lady Gaga or Iggy Pop.
