Meme Culture
« on: November 12, 2019, 09:03:34 am »
What is up with the angry pointing woman/white cat in all those memes??? And who started it? I think we ought to stop to consider the culture of memes.

While we're considering it here's a related one I thought was hilarious.

Memes were on the web almost from the outset, and maybe that is something we should learn about media in general.

There are always memes.

Interesting, thanks.

FB has become a meme factory. Some are funny/lighthearted and cheer me up immensely. Others, funny or not, are symptomatic of the state of social media, especially politically-motivated memes.

So they're actually unrelated images.  The woman screaming is from "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" or one of those other stupid Real Housewives shows.  And the cat was somebody's cat's instagram account.  Some people have instagram accounts for their cats, and this cat was unimpressed with the plate of veggies.  Somebody thought it would be hilarious to mash the two images together like the woman is having a meltdown at the cat, and the cat doesn't give a crap.

The concept is that somebody is irate about something, and somebody else thinks they're being stupid.

 ;D   The resemblance is uncanny.

The cat is called smudge Lord.  They are from Ottawa.

Update: https://www.narcity.com/news/ca/on/ottawa/sad-white-cat-meme-is-way-more-canadian-than-you-think?fbclid=IwAR1HnQzSDnc-ZYszNF4gulCm0eNvf-C_iH1xaur9l7Oz1hZXo5iT7F86kB4

Aww how could anybody point and shout at such a beautiful cat? Incidentally, the cat we had from 1990 to 2000 liked to sit "at" the table as well. (not on it, at it, as Smudge is doing). Cuteness overload.
