Picking up where I left off in Part 1, I have chosen to become ridiculously famous on the internet by creating a meme. Through the use of Meme Generator, I will make an original, and hopefully hilarious image meme that you will spread around to all your friends an co-workers, so that I can become really, really rich. At least that’s how I imagined it happening, although I don’t think that there is anyway to profit from freely shared images in the internet age (I don’t have a copyright or anything, plus I’ll be stealing an image and ideas from others without giving proper credit. I’m a terrible hack. Don’t you love the internet?).
The first step I took was to think of something funny. If you are as awesomely hilarious as I am, you will have no problem. I did have a problem though, because I find that when you are forced to be funny, all you can think of is dick and boob jokes. I did think of a conversation I had with my friend Stark, so I decided I’d steal his idea and run with it.
Stark had just watched his favourite film, Die Hard, and was spouting off quotes expecting that I would quote along with him. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen that movie in couple years (I have it on VHS tape, but my VCR is acting up lately, and it’s hard to find a VCR repairman anymore) so I couldn’t remember any memorable lines, except one:
I thought it might be funny if John McClane wasn’t able to quote himself, as perhaps he was getting too old to be an action star, let alone remember what he had said in his previous films (Ok, maybe I’m ragging on Bruce Willis and not McClane, but you get my point). So he just spits out whatever common gibberish he could think of, followed by an insult, often vulgar.
I give you Misquoting McClane!
I also mentioned previously that you can insert other established memes into your meme to jump-start its popularity. A couple of examples:
I made too many of these things, so I’ll just leave the rest of them here.
So spread it around so all your friends can share the lulz, and so that I can become infamous for a piss-poor attempt at being funny. Also subscribe and comment, so we can argue about why I’m not funny.
