Re: How internet memes work...

I'm going to make a (possibly) sad (possibly not) admission here.

I don't get the "Oh No You Didn't" Wonder Woman meme.

I'm not sure whether it's supposed to be;
  • I don't believe you just said that. But it's funny.
  • I don't believe you just said that. It's not funny.
  • You didn't really mean that, did you?
  • I'm offended. No, properly offended.

I've seen it in contexts where any of these, or none, could apply.


HELP!

Originally, the phrase in itself was used by quirky characters in sitcoms to express someone stepping over a line, most likely of racial tone, Although disbelief of an physical action also counts.. The meme is used as a satire of said situation, and I wouldn't expect it from someone who is truly offended.

Most of the time, when a user finds something "over the line" funny, it puts it as "it's kinda offensive but LOL"

A meme in layman's term is an internet catchphrase. The difference is that most meme's have a simple formula:

-Picture (sets the tone of the joke)
-Premise A
-Premise B
Result: Hilarity (most of times)

Believe me, a mistake you don't want to do...

It always makes me smile when French speakers say "do a mistake" instead of "make a mistake". They make a mistake while talking about making a mistake. Lol.

Re: How internet memes work...

This evening I found myself in the unfortunate position at a party of pointing out that the cartoon bear on one of the guests' t-shirts looked like Pedobear and subsequently trying to explain what Pedobear was to people completely unfamiliar with memes, and what was funny about it. What a nightmare, I think I've done permanent damage to my reputation.
