There are a lot of things that annoy me. It just so happens, a lot of those things are on Facebook. Among those things, are uplifting memes (because I’m a terrible person), but what I hate even more are memes that are uplifting that you must share if you do that thing. Like, “Today is son day! Share this if you love your son!” And then everyone feels obligated to share because God forbid someone think that you don’t love your son because you didn’t share a meme on Facebook. Or “Cancer is bad, share this if you hate cancer!” And no one wants to be the person who doesn’t hate cancer. They’re basically like those horrible chainmails that you had to send to 10 people or your crush would never like you. Obligatory sharing annoys me the most, so I thought it would be fun to make some really ridiculous obligatory sharing memes.
Like for instance, tomorrow, September 17th, is national Eat an Apple Day (because that’s a thing that needs to exist), so of course it needs a meme.
Technically, this should have at least one misspelling and some unnecessary ellipses, but my OCD prevented it. (When in doubt, always blame your OCD.)
I also thought it would be fun to make one that people feel really obligated to share. You can post this and then question all your friends who don’t share it. Hey, maybe there’s even bounty on them you can collect!
If you want something a little more heartwarming though, there’s nothing like a friend in bad weather meme.
And of course, no meme catalog is complete without the one that gently tries to tell your friends how they’re doing the parenting thing all wrong.
If you want to share these easily, I’m going to put them on my Facebook page and then see how many likes my page loses! If you do share them, let me know how many friends you lose or if it gets shared again by some gullible poor soul. If one of these goes viral, I’ll even throw a pizza party!
Also, I’m sorry for neglecting my blog lately. I just started grad school, which is exciting, but my schedule has basically been, go to work, work, go back home, do two hours of school work, eat dinner, watch an episode of Rick and Morty, pass out. I’m going to find some time soon though to put together some comic ideas I have. Probably.
