Welcome to Anti-Meme Fridays.
We’re here with some fresh new meme-hate for your entertainment.
Here’s how it works: The first meme (or memes) are always pulled from Facebook or Twitter and will have their logic deconstructed in the most sarcastic way possible. The second meme is anti-motivational, offensive, and/or funny.
Because…really…that’s all a good meme should aspire to be.
It’s all in good fun.
Three Memes (Bad)
…these are bad.
First, and as a general rule, motivational memes are absurd. Foolish. A waste of time. People don’t experience life-changing moments by reading nonsensical quotes/memes on Facebook. They need to go through some serious, real-life growth, usually driven by hard times. Right? Right.
Now as for these specific memes:
Bad Meme 1. Actually, men (and women) can be defeated. Happens every day. I’m not sure if Hemingway really wrote this one, but if he did…it’s either out of context or dumb.
Bad Meme 2. You were given this life because two people got busy and some biology happened. That’s probably the only reason. Humans (especially nowadays when Survival of the Fittest no longer applies) aren’t innately strong, smart, or skilled. These things are earned, and certainly not by everyone.
Bad Meme 3. The love in your heart…doesn’t it die when you die? Or when you decide to stop loving something? I agree with the first two sentences, but the third is silly. Love fades. People change.
And I need a Snickers.
Meme 2 (Not quite as bad)

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