wildcardjack: TheHighlandHowler: FlashHarry: what's the origin of the anne frank/helen keller meme?

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.


Between jokes about Helen Keller and the Challenger explosion, middle school was a funny time for me.

/yeah, I'm old.
//what's Helen Keller's favorite color?

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


I used to think that it was an honest to FSM meme until playing a game of Apples to Apples. When we had to write how old Anne Frank was when she died out of 4 of us two people wrote down 80/70 years old. When myself and the other player presented our cards both saying 14 one of the other players paused and said "Oh. I think I was thinking of Helen Keller."

Summer Glau's Love Slave: tlars699: Oldiron_79: I_Am_Weasel: That's Helen Keller, genius.

No she dissappeared flying across the pacific.

Wasn't she crucified by the English for being a witch?

No, that was Margaret Thatcher.


Before or after she discovered radium?

Rufus Lee King: mrlewish: tlars699: Wasn't she crucified by the English for being a witch?

No that was Joan Baez.  She was some deaf folk singer.

Joan was a really great singer, though, despite her handicap.

I always get Helen Keller and Lizzy Borden mixed up. I think it's because of Helter Skelter.

Captain Steroid: Sin_City_Superhero: Pud: 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.

That was Susan B. Anthony, you putz.

You're both idiots.

It was Nancy Drew.


No, it was Trixie Belden

And she cut off her ear I've heard.

No, no, no. I know for a fact that that was Emily Dickinson.

Look at me! I'm Angie Dickinson!


Omg.. I guffawed...

Sonofabiatch. Damn meme made me forget Helen Keller's name. Anne Frank has taken residence in my memory as the deaf/blind lady taught by Anne Sullivan.

Look, she was quite influential in our nation. Here she is, in conference with Richard Nixon:

Know your meme


I think it's much older than that, though.  Back in middle school (20+ years ago), we were taught about Anne Frank and Helen Keller close together in our humanities class, and because they were both young girls with odd stories, it was easy to mix them up.

Partly that. Partly because I'll be turning 40 in a few weeks and, between family genetics and food/drink/lifestyle choices, I'm definitely past the midpoint of my life. You do have a point though, and I'm probably somewhere close to the median age of Farkers.

I worked as a maintenance man at a school for the blind.I was in charge of cleaning the dormitories for the kids.These long strings ran down the lengths of the hallways.The kids used them to find their rooms.They didn't have room numbers in the conventional sense.Instead, there were five beads on the strings near the room doors.There were two types of beads, square and circular.It was a binary system with the square bead representing 1 and the circular bead representing 0.So, a kid might have a room number of 01010, or Room 62.


I was on call day and night.The kids were always puking and shiatting in the halls because they'd get upset stomachs from the terrible food then lose their way to bathroom in the middle of the night.I always thought blind people maneuvered around as easily as a cat lands on its feet, as long as the blind person knew the area somewhat.Nope.Terrible navigators.Lots of blood nose smears on the cinder block walls from where they'd collide.Lots of head bumps too.


Now, I'm not saying it did or didn't cause their blindness, but damn if the students were masturbating nearly constantly.I guess it's harder to resist the temptation when you know the person next to you can't see.I think they thought they were being quiet about it, but it sounded like someone was constantly trying to start a fire with two wet sticks around there.I had to quit because I couldn't stop cracking up.I burst a blood vessel in my eye laughing so hard once.


Even if it is a wive's tale, you'd think you'd ease off just to be sure.
