Full-on metaphysics. In meme form I know I probably shouldn't. It's too trite. Memes. Just shoot me now. One of probably many previouslies

I laughed, and forwarded it on to my amateur theologian friend.

technically Judas was condemned because he committed suicide, not because he betrayed Christ

Wow. This is really great.

I was fumbling around and reading them slowly. I came across one that rang so true, I burst out laughing.

Thank you for this link.

Maybe in meme form some of them will begin to understand.

Bwahahaha...what am I thinking?

This is offensive.



Mostly because it's so stupid.

PueExMachina, that's one of the bunch that I laughed at.

I guess I have poor taste.

You're probably all aware of this, but when I wanted to introduce my sister (who depends on me to keep tabs on the Internet for her) to the wonders of Business Cat, I found the roll call of Advice Animals on that site very useful.

Surely advice animals deserve to be cataloged and archived by the Library of Congress, at least as deserving as Tweets are. Just ask the librarian.

I was JUST trying to explain that Privilege-Denying Dude was a meme, based on another meme, but I wasn't sure what the original was. Still am not. Was it Insanity Wolf or what?

Fish in a barrel.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of fish who take this literal claptrap, uh, literally. Fire away.

Advice Dog was the first popular meme in this style - a cuddly labrador who dispensed terrible, life-wrecking advice. There were a variety of others, but Courage Wolf started a trend, leading to a plethora of others. Courage Wolf evolved in an interesting way - now most people treat it as an aggressive character, but the older ones (often with black text) were a sort of motivational to help people dealing with bullying and depression. One of my favorites was 'Life give you lemons - demand seconds.'

My favoritest Courage Wolf of all time.

The Know Your Meme page has a much bigger repository of Courage Wolf images (and other related memes as well). Quickmeme is a newcomer and only has 3 pages of Courage Wolf, and Know Your Meme has 37 pages.

First one is technically inaccurate - no one at the Oscars this year thanked God, as far as I noticed. Other than that, awesome.

Never mind. It'll soon be "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day".

Yeah, and Mefi might post that (might not), but if everybody draw a feminist day gets posted, the blue will be totally outraged and cries of sexism/boyzone/etc. will ring out.

It's mostly just lazy attempts at mocking by snarking at the most obvious and outrageous tenets. It's been done to death (by Carlin for most of the latter half of the 20th c. if no one else).

Wait, I just saw DU's link. That was funny.

Actually, I foresee cries of laziness much like your own. Feminists are like serial killers in that they look exactly like everyone else.

Every image in the link is broken for me. Zen?

I'm trying to recall the last time feminists made death threats to people who mocked feminists. Help me out there, would you?

Missing the point, dude.
