Prince Harry has spent the Olympics with his brother William and William’s wife Kate Middleton. Bloggers like to call him Third Wheel Prince Harry. Which sounds to me like the name of an advice meme! So I made him one.
This photo of Prince Harry was too perfect to not throw text on. Nick chose wisely. Be sure to check out the rest.
The true triumph of democracy is that we can write silly things on the Royals’ faces.
The “Others Girls vs Me” meme happened this week. It’s poking fun at how some Tumblr ladies consider themselves to be nerdy and quiet while other girls are girly. (There are examples in the article linked below.)
But then (dramatic twist!) some people took this parody image seriously, and that led to its own parodies, and you guys, they are pretty funny.
Read the full story at The 12 Best Parodies of the “Other Girls vs Me” Meme. It’s an interesting look at a thing you may have only been vaguely aware of.
I liked some of these before I even knew what they were parodying.
Anyone who’s been on Tumblr for a while has probably seen this phrase: “FOLLOW THIS BLOG. You’ll love it on your dashboard.” It’s from the 1000notes network and it’s annoying and insincere.
Thankfully Nate Smith wrangled together 29 memes to dump all over that phrase.

Someone at the Sun is responsible for all these “interview with a trolling victim” articles. And you’d think that person would have the decency to explain to these interviewees that you can’t stop a joke. Or at least to tell them that it’s been out there for years, on FunnyJunk, Reddit, 4chan, Tumblr and elsewhere.
You can’t “take down” a meme. Even if it were legally possible, it’s not technologically feasible. We have ironic pedophilia memes for fuck’s sake. Once it’s out there, it’s out there. Fighting against it’s just going to give you grief.”

Most reblogs of this quote include the second paragraph but it’s the first that’s more important. The Sun is TMZ for old people. They know that their Series on Trolling brings clicks which in turn brings ad money. Not surprisingly every few
weeksdays there’s an article about how The Internet Is Mean To Good People.
The Sun Has a War On Trolls. The battlefield is your click throughs and the end game is more ad revenue for themselves.

one question from the Interview with Cole Stryker
THIS MAN IS A STRAIGHT UP G. THATS SOME GANGSTA SHIT RIGHT THERE. 4CHAN SOUNDS JUST LIKE THE HOOD. GOOD LUCK MAN.
How do you expect them to respond to the book?
Well there are these ‘Rules of the Internet’ that 4chan has come up with and the first two are copied directly from Fight Club. ‘The first rule of /b/ is don’t talk about /b/. The second rule of /b/ is don’t talk about /b/.’ So even though I feel I’m very sympathetic to the 4chan community and try to give them a fair shake, just the fact that I’m talking about them and revealing their secrets is probably gonna make them angry. It’s kind of like when your favorite band goes to a major record label. And suddenly everyone is aware and everyone pretends to be a huge fan and everyone knows all their lyrics. You don’t feel so special anymore. I kind of feel like that’s what 4chan has experienced over the last six months or so. They’re on the front page of newspaper every few days.”
Scumbag Steve thinks Cole is a straight up G. U jelly?
