This dog is wearing a cardboard Star Trek Enterprise costume with Bud Light cans as warp nacelles. This is a sea horse. This pony has a condo. Your argument is invalid.

The cheezburger guys are getting desperate for new memes to exploit.

I like how the dog looks like he knows he's involved in something embarassingly nerdy.

Agreed, ardgedee. We're definitely approaching peak meme.

The guy should look into alternative humor.

I like how wary the pony in the condo is like he's looking at some suspicious youths getting dangerously close to his lawn.

Your argument appears valid, but commits the Red-herring fallacy, and is invalid.

Everybody knows memes is just a red herring.

We've secretly replaced zarq's beloved MetaFilter with an idiotic 4Chan meme. Let's watch, and see if he notices.

Oh, you know, I'd love to say, "Snarf snark hurf durf I this this is lame-tacular and you're dumb for liking these," but I can't. I know I'm old and this is supposed to be pseudo-hip and irono-funny, but stupid pictures with dorky captions make me laugh. Just like New Yorker cartoons.

Does that make me a bad person?

This website is using the Chewbacca Defense as its sole reason for existence.

Its reason for existence is invalid.
posted by adamrice at 1:30 PM on February 15, 2010


I think a lot of these pictures would be a lot funnier without the text. The single connecting caption doesn't even make that much sense (and not in a way that's absurdly funny). I bet this dude I work with is going to be all over this website in like a month though, if his adoption of the roomba cat is any indication.

I know that sites like this and ICHC are bad for me, like potato chips, but once I open the bag... I think that I knew I was in trouble when I saw that this one used the same picture as this demotivator.

I didn't know that this was a meme. I'd only seen the one with the cat and the watermelon. I assume this guy has that one. It's really the only one you need.

This attempt at a book-deal is boring.
posted by modernnomad at 5:03 PM on February 15, 2010


Don't want to rush in here in defence, though the half-hearted amusement the[first few of the]se raised was undeniably amusement all the same.

However, the misspellings are from user submissions and the site's owner can't be held responsible. On the other hand, he (because let's face it, what are the bets that it's a he?) did choose the stupid, screen-filling banner and the picture of the dick in the baseball cap.

It's sad when a fun thing from my you're-only-young-once-but-you-can-always-be-immature internet drifts over accidentally into my yeah-but-who-can-take-you-seriously-when-you-don't-even-know-the-correct-usage-of-the-phrase-begs-the-question internet and is promptly disemboweled.

I mean, as long as I don't do it too close to MeFi's lawn, I can still be immature, right?
