The last thread was getting pretty long and hard to read, so I thought I would start a new one.
I’ve been so inspired by the meme’s produced by the @auseconomicunit EZFKA account that I’m going to do a homage to them.
I’ll start with one of my recent favorites:
It is simple but effective, but it also lends itself to being re-used again and again and again, drilling it in for all to see – the root cause of all our social problems, that our media and talking heads refuse to draw any connection too, is our politicians ‘solution to everything‘.
Speaking of hospital queues, this one fucking rocked:
Great use of the Withered Wojak. Everyone knows he’s had the life sucked out of it – it doesn’t need to be said. The question is ‘Why?’ Which Albo answers in the next frame. Brilliant! Leith should steal this and use it as the accompanying image to every hospital waiting queue story that the msm likes to run. People really need to give this ‘Immigration is the solution to everything‘ meme some legs and push at every opportunity they get.
This one is also Brilliantly effective.
The same but different is just another version of the ‘Either/Or’ damned if you do, damned if you don’t red button meme.
Now compare and contrast the two. The ‘Either/Or’ meme has the limitation of only being able to carry a limited typed text – basically a couple words. You better be good at being succinct or it will fall flat or miss the mark. The EZFKA version is waaaaay better, because it is carrying so much more visual information… AAA+!
Finally I’ll give praise to how EZFKA Twitter uses consistent branding and layout with regard to it’s ‘Satire’ news articles, it is very important to deliver a constant message using consistent branding – there is a reason why News Papers rarely change their Banner’s.
Anyhow, as someone who use to passionately make his own meme’s for a while I do have an appreciation of meme construction, and thought I would call out these excellent examples of memeship.
Postscript: We should have a meme making competition. Tweet your home made meme’s to the Stewie Griffin Twitter account linked above and I’ll post them and attribute them in the comments.
