This is the only thing I've ever seen with Beyonce's name attached to it that is even remotely entertaining.

That is sort of a hilarious statement with respect to this thing in particular since it takes a pretty extensive familiarity with Beyonce's oeuvre to get all the references that are being made and why they are funny / interesting / appropriate in relation to the various pictures. Like, how could a "Beyonce sux" person even understand what this is about?

Liberté, Egalité, Beyoncé.

This is grand.

I only get about half the Beyonce quotes but this one needs no prior knowledge of Beyonce's lyrics.

Joey B, I haven't sought Beyonce out in my own life and still I got a lot of this. She's ubiquitous if you follow certain segments of pop culture.

The tag #notorious-RBG is best

it's like everything about women now has to be translated into Beyonce or Disney Princesses or we don't understand it (has anyone done Supreme Court Disney Princesses yet?)

Im OK with this though.

Enjoying the hashtags, especially the characterisation of Ruth Bader Ginsberg as #notorious RBG

So, you're saying that people who enjoy this are probably exceptionally familiar with all of Beyoncés work and so are likely to have a pretty well-founded opinion of it all?

[A couple comments removed. It's okay to not like a thing but please do not make the thread into an argument about whether or not other people are qualified to be annoyed by your jumping in to tell them.]

Since the "Beyonce voters" thing came out, I keep saying, is that supposed to be an insult on the Old White Dude Planet, because an immensely famous, rich, and gorgeous person who does things like donate 7 million dollars to a Houston charity...why would I not want to be associated with her? Hell yes I'm a Beyonce voter.

I've never heard the term "beyonce voter" before but even before I Google I assume I am it

I don't know much about Beyonce beyond Single Ladies but what I do get of this is hilarious.

Also, the Texas Democratic Party approves, per their FB page.

sweetkid, RBG has in fact been turned into a Disney Princess: "Supreme Princess."

I'd vote for Beyoncé.

As long as we're doing Beyoncé humor...

"Beyonce Voters" is wonderful to me because it exposes the mindset of the hard-right coming to view with how they thought that was some kind of insult.

Oh, voters are like Beyonce? A rich, built-from-ground-up American success story who now has a solid investment portfolio, her own business, and, oh right, a healthy marriage and traditional nuclear family?

But, oh, that's right. She's black and a woman. So being Beyonce is bad. Those are bad voters.

I enjoyed the tumblr, and then I made the mistake of Googling "beyonce voter" to find out the origin of the meme, and now I haz a grar.

(But now I am also going to ever think of Obama and Biden as "me and my boo")

That too is another tumblr meme.

ME AND MY BOO IN MY BOO'S COUPE RIDIN

If I was still a dude who wore too tight, homemade t-shirts out to gay clubs, a shirt with this design is the only design you would see me in.

Ever.

I'd be like "Ginger Obama Biden Beyoncé guy" to everyone who did not know me.

It would be fantastic.

("Ginger" because if I was that guy, I'd probably be dyeing the grey out of my hair and lightening it too; that guy was vain as shit.)
