Welcome to my smartass series, Anti-Meme Fridays.
In a sad, hollow effort to spread my loathing of motivational memes, every Friday I’ll be posting some new meme-hate. Forever.
I’ll post two memes every week. The first one, I’ll put up an actual meme I pulled from Facebook or Twitter, and I’ll deconstruct its logic in the most sarcastic way possible. For the second one, I’ll post something anti-motivational and/or funny. Because…really…that’s all a good meme should aspire to be.
Enjoy! Oh, and please be assured this is all in good fun. I’m doing this to combat the stress of writing extremely dark fiction all day long.
I see a lot of this type of meme. A LOT. You know the ones I’m talking about. The implication with these is that the person who posted the meme and a select group of chosen others are smarter, cooler, more intellectual, or more whatever than the rest of society. I call bullshit. The only thing these memes imply is that the person putting them up is more condescending than everyone else. I get that they’re supposed to be lighthearted, but being pretentious isn’t a good look for anyone. Because, let’s face it, vomiting snarky memes all over Facebook doesn’t exactly speak volumes of anyone’s intelligence.
