  • WiP editorships are welcome

    About

    Background

Following the incident Chicago police found the victim distraught and traumatized from the incident and transported him to a local hospital for treatment. The following day police became aware from the video and arrested the assailants. As of January 5th, 2017 they have yet to be formally charged.

    About

    Bernie Sanders Brings Tweets to the Senate refers to a series of photoshops of an image of Bernie Sanders bringing a large, printed tweet of Donald Trump to the United States Senate while making an argument in favor of Obamacare. In the photoshops, Trump’s tweet is replaced with various tweets and humorous images.

    Origin

    On January 4th, 2017, Bernie Sanders spoke to the United States Senate arguing in favor of keeping Obamacare, which Republicans had been working to repeal. In his argument, he brought a printout of a tweet made by Donald Trump that reads, “I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me,”[1] illustrating that on the campaign trail, Trump promised to keep benefits promised by Obamacare. The image of Bernie standing next to the tweet, shown below, inspired photoshops.



    Spread

    The image first drew commentary on how people found it strange that tweets were being brought to the Senate floor. The person who brought the poster tweeted that Ted Cruz chuckled at him as he carried it to the Senate.[2] This inspired Twitter user @HapaxLegoman[4] to tweet an image of Sanders standing next to an awkward Ted Cruz tweet about his daugher’s love of butter (shown below).



    As that image and several other photoshops began spreading on Twitter, Gizmodo invited its readers to create photoshops of it, asking “What Large Poster Should Bernie Have Brought to the Senate Floor?”[3] SelectAll[5] covered the spread of the jokes on January 4th, 2017, and the tweets made Twitter Moments[6] the following day.

  • 01/06/17--08:12: Henlo
  • About

    Henlo refers to a series of images in which animals are looking at a computer and apparently getting cyberbullied by a person who starts their message with “henlo (animal).” The message that the animal is reading is a snowclone that changes depending on the animal, and the chats are generally written in doggo -like slang.

    Origin

    The original image features a lizard reading a Steam chat in a which a user named 1 rooting tooting motherfucker writes “henlo lizer. helllo you STINKYLIZARD. go eat a fly ugly” (shown below).



    While the exact date of when the image was first posted online is unknown, the picture, its September 26th, 2016 Sizzle[1] post, and the comments in 1 rooting tooting motherfucker’s profile[2] indicate it was posted between September 19th and September 26th, 2016.

    Spread

    In the coming month, the image spread via Instagram[3] and Facebook meme pages.[4] By late November, variations using different animals began appearing with the text on the screen tailored to that specific animal. The first known variation was posted by Facebook page Where My Shrimp[8] on October 19th, 2016, and featured a lobster.



    On November 22nd, 2016, Facebook page Dinkleburg[5] posted a variation that included a dog. On December 6th, HotForKevinJames posted the image to /r/dankmemes[6] adding the caption “Just walked in on my son to see him being bullied online..” (shown below).

  • 01/06/17--09:52: Can I Copy Your Homework?
  • About

    Can I Copy Your Homework? refers to a series of jokes made on Twitter that compares two pieces of pop culture, one of which appears to have nearly completely imitated the first. The joke references a grade school practice wherein one student asks another if they could copy their homework assignment, and the other obliges on the condition that they change a few things so that the first student’s homework isn’t technically plagiarized, resulting in two nearly identical assignments.

    Origin

    The earliest known tweet to employ the joke format was tweeted by @essentialpeach[1] on October 18th, 2016, when she tweeted images of several films ripping off popular animated movies by Dreamworks, Disney, and Pixar such as Up and Kung Fu Panda (shown below).



    Spread

    A few versions of the joke were posted in the coming months, but did not start getting popular until December 18th, 2016, when a Harry Potter fan account, @castofhp,[2] tweeted an image of musician Ed Sheeran and “Ron Weasley” actor Rupert Grint standing next to each other looking very similar, captioned “‘can I copy your homework?’/ ‘yeah just change it up a bit so it doesn’t look obvious you copied’ / ‘ok’” (shown below). The tweet has gained nearly 24,000 retweets and 32,000 likes as of January 6th, 2017.



    Following @castofhp’s post, the joke began spreading to other fandoms as people adapted it to various pop culture references, centering the joke on how the imitated piece of pop culture was always superior to the imitation. One popular joke centered around the 90s sitcom Friends was suspiciously close in plot and concept as the sitcom Living Single, which featured an all-black cast of 20-somethings.



    This example drew the attention of The Daily Dot,[3] who wrote about the ensuing conversation about Living Single and Friends as well as other examples of the meme. The jokes were also compiled in a Twitter Moment[4] on January 5th, 2017.

    Seize the means of production refers to a quote from W. E. B. Du Bois. from his autobiography published in 1968,[3]
    “It is a historical fact that blacks were brought to this country for the profit of the ruling class which at the time were landowners. They needed someone to till the soil and grow profitable crops. Today we have shifted from an agrarian economy to a goods-production economy. But the same relationships exist between the private owner and the worker. Nothing has changed. Therefore, for working people to be free, they must seize control of the means of production.”
    “All members of the working classes must seize the means of production. This, naturally, includes black people. But as I said before, to do this we must become psychologically free so that we can be fully capable of meaningful self-determination. Capitalism deprives us all of self-determination. Only in the context of socialism can man practice the self-determination necessary to provide for their freedom.”.
