  • 03/12/15--08:14: L'Oréal
  • About

    L’Oréal is a cosmetics company that has spawned an image macro meme. The image macros typically show a subject flaunting some of their more ‘attractive’ features like their hair or flawless face with the caption ’L’oreal’ (often followed by the company’s slogan, ‘because you’re worth it,’) placed on the image.

    Origin

    L’Oréal was founded in 1909 by Eugène Schueller[1], while the slogan L’Oréal uses today was written by Ilon Specht on 1973[2]. This points out that the meme itself most likely spawned before the internet became accessible to the majority of the population since L’Oréal had power and influence decades ago.

    Spread

    Meme sites such as Meme Center and Quick Meme are just some of the multiple meme sites that have received multiple entries of the meme[3][4]. Deviantart has also been receiving instances of the meme tagged L’Oreal with 1,939 results[5].

    Kim Jong Un Bent Over is a photoshop meme based on a photograph of the North Korean dictator bent over a bed during an inspection of a new residential complex constructed for scientists and university professors.

    About

    “It Was Me, Barry!” is a line associated with Professor Zoom, also known as Reverse-Flash, an archnemesis of a DC Comics superhero Flash. It is usually used as a parody of the character and how petty he appears to be. The jokes and images often consist of phrases such as “IT WAS ME, BARRY, ME!” or “I WASTHAT ___, BARRY!”.

    Origin

    The line’s origins are connected to a monthly six-issue American comic book Flash: Rebirth, although the line itself does not appear there. The line’s context comes from one of the issues where Eobard Thawne a.k.a. Zoom reveals to Barry Allen a.k.a. Flash that he made it so that he was responsible for numerous terrible things that happened in Barry’s life[1].

    On the 4chan board /co/, the oldest archived posts parodying that scene can be dated back to February 8th, 2010. Soon after replies came in that parodied the Reverse-Flash with images and some jokes.

  • **This article is a WIP, any help would be greatly appreciated.**-- Windigo

    About

    Milhouse is a character featured in the animated television series The Simpsons. In the series he is Bart Simpson’s best friend. He has a crush on Lisa Simpson, although his advances are always rebuffed. He is often the butt of physical and slapstick humor.

    Milhouse is not a meme

    Milhouse is not a meme is a paradoxical statement and a well-known debate on the imageboard site 4chan about what makes an internet meme and what doesn’t, using The Simpsons character Milhouse Van Houten as an example. Since the birth of the debate on 4chan in 2005, the phrase has been typically used to initiate a chain post of recursive nature. Due to its recurrence over time, “Milhouse is not a meme” is often referred to as a forced meme.

    “Everything’s coming up Milhouse”

    “Everything’s coming up Milhouse” is a phrase uttered by Milhouse Season 10, Episode 19. It is described by the Urban Dictionary as being synonymous with “Everything’s going well for me”.

    There is a level of sardonicism involved with the phrase; assumably because it is associated with one of the unlucky characters in television. When used, the phrase is often used regarding something completely unremarkable (Eg. “Went from a 25% to a 28% in the class I’m failing, everything’s coming up Milhouse”) as evidenced by the Buzzfeed collection of tweets 29 Times Everything Was Coming Up Milhouse. The implication being that the subject is so unlucky the rest of the time even minor positive things are paraded as big accomplishments.

Recurring topics on the board include share threads, where users post links to albums they recommend, chart threads, which are used to show what albums a user has been listening to, and threads for showing off user’s pages on Bandcamp and Soundcloud, alongside other, more specific threads around themes such as classical music, Death Grips, music production, and Korean pop music.[3]
