Facebook rant part 3 – Picture Memes, and what really goes on with the ‘like if you hate cancer, remember the 80s’ etc
Every fucking day it is the same thing. “Remember the 80s? Huh? Do you?!” and perhaps a picture with a funny speech bubble coming from it.
Meme is a name coined by the grey haired God-hater, Richard Dawkins. it means ‘something imitated – to imitate – mime’ and is a spread of cultural experiences whether that be music, a period of time or catch phrases. They make me sick. I understand and enjoy it when someone within my social circle has taken the time to construct their own memes, but this forwarding and liking of memes such as those depressing ones about “women’s love is strong because a woman is strong and they do love and love blah blah love, sad, strong, stay strong, blah blah” is a bunch of shit! If you are sad, fucking tell someone you are sad! Remember the 80s? Well done, now crack on with life NOW the 80s are over, I couldn’t give a fuck what you remember. I remember Harold Shipman but you don’t see me stick my memories of that all over Facebook… yet.
Kind of connected to the above is the ‘click this if you think it is beautiful’ and then show the most deformed/burnt/battered/ fucked up picture of a human possible. It tugs at people’s emotions and I strongly believe that only the guilty click on them. Me, I hate ugly people. There is nothing beautiful about deformed people, nothing nice about burns or bruises etc. I just care if you are a nice person or not. The people that create these images do not give a shit about the person or people they are posting about.
Click if you hate cancer. Well, that is a surprise…. hundreds and thousands of clicks, millions even from people that hate cancer. If the same amount of people donated a pound/dollar or Euro that would be much more beneficial than your pointless ‘like’
Did you know that most of your ‘likes’ for these posts/sites are part of a much dirtier operation? One these cancer hating pages have enough likes, the page is sold on to mobile phone companies, or some sort of gambling site, porn site, whatever. They then change the page name, the details and they then have a page of their own with hundreds of thousands of likers. Well done for clicking on it you nuttsack!
Of course you hate cancer, AIDs and children starving in poor countries! If you did like that sort of thing then you are a fucking sociopathic cunt!
