THE ANTI-ANTI-MEME!

I apologize to the community if this is inappropriate but I feel I would be lacking if I didn't share this with you.
Do you like taking tests? Love posting surveys? Feel closer to your brother L_Jer when you see their results compared to yours? ME, TOO!
Stand up for your rights. DARE TO BE STUPID! With all the garbage we post every single day with no redeeming value, let us be proud to count this among it! I feel vindicated already.

COPY THIS TO YOUR JOURNAL! POST IT WITH YOUR NEXT ENTRY!

THE ANTI-ANTI-MEME!

I am giving this a more accessible place in all fairness to each. A counter-meme is making the rounds. The idea is based on memes being used to spread ideas rather than useless surveys and quizzes. I wouldn't mind furthering knowledge and sharing something more insightful for ppl to see. BUT... who is this guy to say we are doing this as a way to validate ourselves? I have had basically 3 reactions to any meme I've posted: "That is so true!", "that is so wrong!", or "WTF?".
AND, if the use of links to broaden our horizon is the motivation, why does the counter-meme lead to his journal?!? The author stated it is "just for fun" but I am wondering now if it's not at our expense. A way of saying to us, "HA HA, you will post anything you're told!". Ever hear that Dead Milkmen song "You'll Dance To Anything"? It was a parody of the modern music that was in all the dance clubs at the time. The irony was when they would play it and people would dance to it. Sound familiar? That's what the counter-meme is to me.

Do the math, make your final choices and post what your heart tells you is right!
