I Like Turtles

I Like Turtles is a famous meme that’s been bouncing around the internet since 2007. It’s brilliant in its simplicity. A news reporter goes to a lame festival in search of a sound bite and finds a young boy in zombie makeup. She asks him what he thinks about the fair and he responds by saying he likes turtles. She doesn’t know how to handle that awkward exchange, so she cuts back to the studio. At that point, it was already too late. Ten-year-old Jonathan Ware became a YouTube sensation overnight. He even got to appear on Tosh.0 to explain what happened. Apparently he had just left a turtle exhibit and still had turtles on the brain. So when he was asked what he was thinking, he responded honestly: “I like turtles.” The world would be a better place if only people were so forward and frank as young Jonathan. And now we have a built-in response for boring questions thanks to him. I’ve included the YouTube video below and I suggest that you watch it if you’ve never seen it before. It might just be the highlight of your day. Check it out.

Behind on Memes

I have a friend on Facebook who is constantly posting and sharing links, pictures, and videos on his profile. He has the same sense of humor as me, and we share a lot of the same interests, and most of the things that he posts are from websites that I visit regularly. But all the shit that he shares are at least a week old. He is behind on his memes and he doesn’t realize it. It’s new to him, so he assumes it’s new to everyone else. So he will post clips of Charlie biting his brother or a guy freaking out about a double rainbow and act like he’s a fucking trendsetter. Being behind on memes is like being behind on the latest celebrity death… Yeah, it’s sad that James Gandolfini died, but that was a fucking week ago, not four hours ago. The internet has an extremely quick turnover rate. If it’s two days old, I’m already over it. And so is everyone else.
