  • 02/26/17--21:11: Cynthia, don't even start
  • Origin

    The Cynthia meme, or “Cynthia, don’t even start”, was created on February 26th, 2017 by popular Tumblr user the-real-ted-cruz. Known among their followers for various inside jokes such as “loaf”, the user responded to criticism on one of their posts with the following paragraph:

    Cynthia, don’t even start with me. We all know that the cookies you “baked” for the PTA bake sale were actually store bought, and guess what? They tasted like trash. You’re always late to Yoga class on Tuesdays at 3:00-4:00 PM and you look like a flailing turtle when you go in Standing Tree position. You dress like a teen girl who just discovered Claire’s and your son is bad at soccer, so don’t even go there, Cynthia.

    The copypasta took off quickly among their followers and within hours had been sent anonymously to dozens of users. Both the original post and the follow-up containing only the copypasta received over 250 notes before the end of the day. The hashtag “#Cynthia don’t even start” was designated as the official tracking tag for the meme in hopes of elevating it to trending on Tumblr.

    Usage

    So far, there are two main established uses for the meme:

    1. Sending randomly to others with no context

    2. Replying to those whose opinions you disagree with

    Evolution

    Because the meme is still brand new, almost no evolution has occurred. Several users have coupled it with existing memes such as Increasing Brain Activity, What She Says/What She Means, and Me, An Intellectual. This article will continue to be updated as more changes are observed.

  • 02/26/17--21:49: Tyrone
  • Tyrone is a black imp from the hood. He came to the good white man’s neighborhood in search of a KFC, as his tried and true was shot up and is currently under investigation. He is extremely addicted to cocaine. He has a gun, but he does not know how to use said gun because he never went to school. Just like black people, he cannot read. His Timberlands were stolen. He does not have $169.99 at his disposal. He is always high on bud, so his tweets are not what we would deem trustworthy. He is entirely unaware of the comb in his fro. Don’t tell him, we’re trying to see how long it will stay there. He once shot up his local Walmart, but there were no injuries as he did (and does) not know how to wield a gun. That is how he got his restraining order. Please do not let Tyrone into Walmart. He attempted a KFC drive-by, but the delectable, savory chicken rinds pulled him in and he decided to cop a nice snack. Then he got arrested for rape, because he is black. In his earlier forms, he has two arms and two legs. As Tyrone breaks the law more and more, he grows more limbs; like a criminal Pinocchio. Black Lives Matter is his go-to social movement. He will eventually be caught and mauled brutally by a bald, white policeman who longs for the blood of the young black male. End

  • 02/17/17--15:58: Expanding Brain
  • About

    Expanding Brain is a meme in which a series of images compare the brain size of a person relative to a certain factor. Though the expanding brain is usually implied to showcase intellectual superiority over various objects, it is more often used in an ironic sense to imply the opposite, where objects of derision are implied to be of higher standard than objects that are usually highly regarded. For example, when used with Whomst, a person who uses “who” will be shown with the smallest brain, while a person who uses the most ridiculous variation, i.e. “whomst’d’ve”, will be shown with the largest brain.

    Origin

    This meme originated as part of the “Whomst” meme where the left column was derivations of the word “Who” were paired with increasingly elaborate pictures of brains depending on how intense the “who” variation was. One of the most popular early examples was posted to /r/dankmemes on January 31st, 2017 by janskishimanski[1] in a post that gained nearly 1,200 upvotes.



    Spread

    As “whomst” variations on the Expanding Brain template grew more elaborate, other subjects were applied to Expanding Brain, such as video games and politics. Expanding Brain variations continued appearing on /r/dankmemes and /r/MemeEconomy throughout the month of February.

    Overview

    At the 2017 Academy Awards, actors Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway erroneously announced that the winner for Best Picture was La La Land when in fact it was Moonlight. The resulting confusion and controversy dominated the following morning’s coverage and social media discussion of the Oscars.

    History

    At the 2017 Academy Awards, Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty, stars of 1967’s Bonnie and Clyde, were the presenters announcing the winner for Best Picture. After Beatty opened the envelope containing the winner, he appeared confused. He showed the card to Dunaway, who announced that La La Land, the favorite going into the Oscars, had won best picture. After three minutes of the La La Land producers’ acceptance speeches, Academy Awards producers rushed the stage to explain there had been a mistake. Beatty had been given the envelope which had the winner for Best Actress in a Leading Role, which had recently been awarded to Emma Stone for her performance in La La Land. As the situation became clear on stage, La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz took the microphone and said announced that there had been a mistake, and that Moonlight had won best picture. He assured a confused audience that he was not making a joke before taking the card which stated Moonlight had won Best Picture and showing it to the cameras for confirmation.



    Developments

    The gaffe instantly became the leading story about the Oscars, overshadowing _Moonlight_’s win. While the team behind La La Land received praise for handling the situation with class,[1] confusion still abounded as to how the gaffe actually happened. Emma Stone, while clarifying that she was extremely happy for Moonlight, caused confusion when she noted that after her envelope containing her award for Best Actress was handed for her, she never let it go, so she was unsure how Beatty could have it.[2]




    An investigation by Quartz[3] suggested that there had been two cards, held by Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz of the professional services firm PwC, which oversees balloting at the Academy.

    Related Memes

    Social media users instantly responded to the gaffe with memes.[5] For example, Twitter user @sporker_[4] put the Crying Jordan faces on the La La Land poster and gained over 4,600 retweets.



    One of the most popular jokes on Twitter involved taking the shot when the camera showed Best Picture card in Horowitz’ hands and photoshopping the text to read something else. Those jokes were compiled into a Twitter Moment[6] the following day.



    Steve Harvey Jokes

    The incident reminded many of Steve Harvey’s Miss Universe 2015 Gaffe, in which the television host read the wrong winner off his card at the 2015 Miss Universe competition. Host Jimmy Kimmel joked that Harvey was to blame for the snafu. Twitter abounded with jokes connecting the two gaffes.[7] In good humor, Harvey tweeted support to Warren Beatty (shown below).

    EDITOR’S NOTE: This Entry Contains Spoilers for The Legend of Korra

    About

    “we popping the BIGGEST bottles when makorra happens tomorrow” is a Tumblrsnowclone that expresses excitement around a certain event happening. When the event, generally seen as unpopular to others, doesn’t happen, the text is reblogged with a sad image of Pepe the Frog.

    Origin

    On December 17th, 2014, Tumblr user avatarskorra posted “we popping the BIGGEST bottles when makorra happens tomorrow” in anticipation of the final episode of The Legend of Korra. “Makorra” refers to a heterosexual ship in The Legend of Korra fandom of the characters Korra and Mako. Instead, the series ended with an implied homosexual romantic relationship between Asami and Korra. After the episode aired, Tumblr user tonraq[1] reblogged avatarskorra’s post, adding the sad Pepe image. The post has gained over 97,000 notes as of February 28th, 2017.



    Spread

    On Tumblr, the post has become a notable example of mocking someone in hindsight and celebrating homosexual representation. Many in the Korra fandom were rooting for the homosexual Asami and Korra ship, and the Makorra ship was generally unpopular. A blog devoted to the moment, poppingmakorrabottles,[2] launched and celebrated what was perceived as a landmark for homosexual representation in cartoons. The snowclone was later applied to various other fandoms and moments, including Steven Universe and the 2017 Academy Awards (shown below).
