Welcome back to the Anti-Meme Friday series.
After a brief vacation and a few months of posting A Thought for Every Thursday articles, we’re back with some fresh new meme-hate for your entertainment.
Here’s how it works: The first meme is always pulled from Facebook or Twitter, and its logic deconstructed in the most sarcastic way possible. The second meme is anti-motivational and/or funny. Because…really…that’s all a good meme should aspire to be.
It’s all in good fun.
Meme 1 (Bad)
It’s not that this meme here is particularly awful. It’s ok, I guess. If cute and only mildly amusing are your goals, you could do worse…maybe.
The problem here is the proliferation of ‘when you’ memes. A while back, someone decided to post a pic with text saying “That look when you…” and the entire meme-spewing world decided to copy the format. Forever. And ever. And now every other meme ever made begins with “When you…”
…though amusing the first few thousand go-arounds…
…its time has passed.
Can we please just kill this meme-theme? Please?
Meme 2 (Not quite as bad)
If you absolutely must post a meme.
A. Make it at least a little offensive
B. Tosh.0 always a good place to start

That’s all I’ve got today.
Farewell for now.
Oh, here’s a few of my deadly serious books:
