  • 02/03/17--09:25: Bowling Green Massacre
  • About

    Bowling Green Massacre is a fictional terror attack described by Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway during a televised interview in early February 2017.

    Origin

    On February 2nd, 2017, Conway appeared as a guest on Hardball with Chris Matthews, where she asserted that an attack known as the “Bowling Green Massacre” occurred in 2009 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, leading President Barack Obama to impose a six-month ban on Iraqi refugees (shown below).



    “I bet it’s brand new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. Most people don’t know that because it didn’t get covered.”

    Shortly after the interview was broadcast, Twitter user @joesonka published a clip of Conway referring to the fictional event, which gained over 14,000 retweets and 13,000 likes within 24 hours (shown below).




    Spread

    That evening, Twitter users began posting jokes about Conway’s statements, many of which consisted of other unsubstantiated claims (shown below).[8]



    On February 3rd, Conway tweeted that she “meant to say ’Bowling Green terrorists,” linking to a 2013 ABC News[6] article about two al Qaeda-Iraq terrorists living as refugees in Bowling Green, Kentucky.[7]



    That day, Snopes[1] published an article about Conway’s interview, noting that no massacre ever took place. Also on February 3rd, the parody site BowlingGreenMassacreFund[2] was launched to help victims of the fictional terror attack, containing a “Donate Now” button which links to a donation page for the American Civil Liberties Union (shown below).



    Meanwhile, two posts about Conway’s interview reached the front page of /r/politics.[3][4] The same day, Redditor netoholic submitted a post speculating that Conway was playing “5D chess by manipulating the media to report on the story of Iraq terrorists who came to the United States as refugees to ”http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/sites/r-the_donald">/r/The_Donald.[5]

  • 01/27/17--13:08: Mr. Potato Head
  • About

    Mr. Potato Head is an American toy consisting of a plastic model of a potato which can be decorated with a variety of plastic parts that can attach to the main body. These parts usually include ears, eyes, shoes, a hat, a nose, and a mouth. The toy was invented and developed by George Lerner in 1949, and first manufactured and distributed by Hasbro in 1952.

    History

    In the early 1940s, Brooklyn-born toy inventor George Lerner came up with the idea of inserting small, pronged body and face parts into fruits and vegetables to create a “funny face man”. Some speculate he got the idea from his wife’s nephew Aaron Bradley, who was seen placing sticks inside of potatoes in the family garden. Lerner would often take potatoes from his mother’s garden and, using various other fruits and vegetables as facial features, he would make dolls with which his younger sisters could play. The grape-eyed, carrot-nosed, potato-headed dolls became the principal idea behind the plastic toy which would later be manufactured.

    << … Rhythmic Exercise Should Be Widely Disseminated. >> Kim Jong Il

    About

    North Korean Rhythmic Exercise, usually called “Rhythmic Exercise” (Korean: 율동체조, Yuldong chejo or 률동체조, Ryuldong chejo; Japanese: 律動体操, Ritsudou Taiso) simply, refers to a series of calisthenics produced by the Korean Workers’ Party in 1990s. Its official video clips had been popular visual resources for audio-dubbing parodies in the early days of niconico Douga (niconico).

    Origin

    According to the Korean Wikipedia’s article[1] and a TV program “The Love to the people is also in the rhythmic exercise” which was aired by Korean Central Television (KCTV)[2] in August 2015,[3][4][5] this exercise series began to be developed as an improved version of similar exercises in Kim Il-sung era, People’s Health Exercise (인민보건체조), at North Korean Sports Science Center by order of Kim Jong-il in March 1993. Began by the release of the adults version in the following year, 4 more rhythmic exercises, children, elders, toddlers and babies versions, were serially created in 1990s. Its soundtracks, except for the toddlers version, are played by Wangjaesan Light Music Band.[6] These official tutorial movies for the exercises are still aired on KCTV in 2010s.

    Besides, the Korean Workers’ Party also created several sports-themed rhythmic exercises (Basketball, Soccer and Wrestling versions) during Kim Jong-un era.

    Spread

    In around late 2002 or early 2003, North Korean rhythmic exercise became to catch an attention among some of Japanese people by a midnight TV show Black Wide Show[7] which often picked up KCTV’s news and propaganda footage for fun. Few years later, the launches of YouTube and niconico brought the exercises’ unique movements on cheap music up to visual resources for online video parodies. Particularly, the children version had been often used for audio-dubbing videos which mashup its footage with anime or video game music between 2007 and 2011.[8][9]

    *"I Call My Own Shots" refers to jokes made about a tweet made by President Donald Trump in which he claimed “I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it. Some FAKENEWS media, in order to marginalize, lies!” On Twitter, jokes about the tweet paired the text with nonsensical GIFs.

    Origin

    On February 6th, 2017, President Trump tweeted “I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it. Some FAKENEWS media, in order to marginalize, lies!” (shown below).[1]



    While it’s unclear what exactly Trump is referring to, The Daily Dot[3] cites speculation that Trump is taking issue with a New York Times article[2] posted on the 5th that insinuates former Breitbart executive chairman and current top White House advisor Stephen Bannon snuck in language to an executive order that promoted Bannon to the National Security Council, and that Trump was not aware of the addition until after he signed the order.

    Spread

    Shortly after Trump’s tweet, Twitter users began pairing the text with unrelated images and GIFs to mock the tone and bizarreness of the tweet. One of the first popular examples, with 432 retweets, was posted by @MaynardBasilisk, who paired the text with a GIF of a man riding a boar (shown below).




    Over the course of the day, many more Twitter users published their variations on the joke. Another popular variation of the joke was to use “I Call My Own Shots” in dialogue memes as an excuse for bad behavior, similar to how Twitter users responded to when Trump said to CNN’s Jake Tapper, You Are Fake News.

    Is a Hot Dog a Sandwich

    Origin

    Spread

    On April 21st, 2015, the food blog First We Feast[1] published an article titled “A Bro and a Philosopher Debate the True Meaning of a Sandwich,” in which medieval philosophy professor Dr. Calvin Normore discussed the debate:

    “I think it might also be because the history of the hot dog is different than the history of sandwiches as a whole. They almost exist on different temporal planes. When history’s first Frankfurter was made in Central Europe and stuck in a roll of bread, it was done outside the modern concept of a sandwich. So, yes, they likely are sandwiches, but only in the same sense that benches are also chairs.”

    On July 8th, comedian Hannibal Buress posted a tweet arguing that “a hot dog has all the qualities of a sandwich.” The tweet was subsequently deleted. On November 7th, the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council announced that was not a sandwich.[3] On November 30th, comedian John Hodgman and The Sporkful[2] podcast host Dan Pashman debated the topic at the Bellhouse in Brooklyn, New York (shown below).

  • 02/06/17--14:55: Hot Monkey Dick
  • About

    Hot Monkey Dick is an exploitable panel series featuring a monkey about to have intercourse with a human male, with the panel usually edited to feature a similar situation with other characters. Originating from a single-panel adult comic, other parts of the comic are often referenced alongside it, most notably the prior phrase “It’s time…”.

    Origin

    The earliest traceable version of the original comic was uploaded to the furry art archive e621 on November 28th, 2011, by furry artist Furronika.[1] However, according to Wikifur,[2] most of Furronika’s original art got deleted in 2010 and 2011; this makes it nearly impossible to trace back the original version. This also leaves it unclear if the phrase “hot monkey dick” was present in the original version, given the odd punchline where the male lead is convinced to buy a PS3 as a result of having intercourse with a monkey.
