What If You Wanted To Go To Heaven is an exploitablefour-panel cringe image of a boy posing the question “What if you wanted to go to Heaven but God said ’Nahhh, remember when you kept scrolling?” The text refers to posts that appear on social media feeds which attempt to guilt people into liking them by saying liking them increases one’s chances of going to heaven and ignoring them increases the chance they go to hell. Edits of the original picture tend to change the last panel of the image and are often deep-fried.
The earliest known variants of the phrase was posted on the /r/terriblefacebookmemes subreddit by Transmanomatic on January 5th, 2016. The image gained over 350 points and features a little boy saying the phrase (shown below).
Rick and Morty Fans refers to a series of jokes, memes and references to the self-congratulatory nature that some perceive fans of the animated television series Rick and Morty posses. Most of the jokes focus on fans of the show seeing themselves and the show to be hyper-intelligent and thus only accessible to a select few.
The series of memes comes from a backlash against the show that began sometime during Rick and Morty’s third season in summer 2017, particularly following the popularity of the Pickle Rick meme. The backlash spurred even further due to the rise of the infamous To Be Fair, You Have to Have a Very High IQ to Understand Rick and Mortycopypasta.
While the copypasta may have come from a prior Facebook comment, the earliest available posting comes from a Reddit comment on July 29th, 2017. That day, Redditor Niekish posted in the subreddit /r/CringeAnarchy:
To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Rick’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick’s existential catchphrase “Wubba Lubba Dub Dub,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon’s genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂
And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎
As the copypasta spread over the summer, anti-Rick and Morty memes that take on the persona of the pretentious fan began to rise in popularity. On September 7th, the Instagram meme account @dabmoms posted a picture of an elderly man clutching his chest with the caption “Lady: He’s having a heart attack. Is anyone here a doctor? Rick and Morty fan: it actually takes a certain level of intelligence to appreciate the subtle genius of Dan Harmon’s humor.” The post (shown below) received more than 12,000 likes in 16 hours.
Later that month, jokes and memes about Rick and Morty fans began appearing on the /r/dankmemes subreddit with many of them adopting the “To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty” the copypasta as a subject title. On September 27th, Redditor theevilnerd42 posted an exploitablewebcomic in which the subject finds intelligent life in the universe as soon as a man says “I watch Rick and Morty.” The post (shown below, left) received more than 2,200 points (95% upvoted) and 50 comments in less than a week.
Throughout the month, joke continued to spread on the Internet. On September 29th, Twitter user @IHATEDOOGAL2 tweeted “person: so why should we accept you into harvard university? me: i watch rick and morty person: oh right this way sir,i apologise.” The post (shown below) received more than 7,000 retweets and 20,000 likes in less than a week.
On October 3rd, 2017, The Daily Dot published an article about the rise of the meme entitled “Self-important ‘Rick and Morty’ fans get owned in this new meme.”
The One Meme to Rule Them All
Please Reference Before Reading:
The origin of The One Meme to Rule Them All is mysterious and shrouded in uncertainty. Legend has it that one dark April night, iFunny user Pebis was sitting in front of his computer, scrapping his mind for a way to get around his artist’s block. After hours of fruitless labor, he had all but given up. As he reached to close his laptop, God himself seized control of him, seizing his limbs and sight. The next morning Pebis woke suddenly in his bed. With no recollection of last night’s events, he cautiously opened his laptop to find but one file left on it. This is it. No other meme the exists or will ever exist can pose a threat to the superiority of this post. No one understands it, not even its creator, and no one ever will. It is our legacy. Someday, if we are so gifted, this is what will be found by beings across the universe. This will be our gift to them. They will know that at some point, one day, this universe was inhabited by Gods.
What is it?
The One Meme to Rule them All is a still picture of Jojo and Jiba standing on the “You Know I Had to Do it to ’Em” sidewalk with the song “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” by Kanye West playing in the background. This is all that can be explained about it. It is not explainable. This is the nature of what makes it so great. It means so much but holds so little. It is both a perfect synonym for the human condition and the opposite of everything were are.
Usually the purpose of a meme is that it is a joke that makes sense only to the few who were around for its creation and initial spreading. Every great meme ever is an inside joke to someone, or is a message or statement hidden behind something seemingly dumb or useless. What makes The One Meme to Rule Them All special is that it is a combination of so many meaningful things from the past decade, yet holds absolutely no static merit or message or joke or anything.
Why is is so great?
The One Meme to Rule Them All is both meaningful and meaningless. It exists in this superimposed state of being where everything it is, it is not, and everything it isn’t, it is. A good example of this is to try to explain it to someone else. Because one both understands it, and doesn’t, the explanation just crumbles in on itself.

Blue’s Clues is an American live-action/animated children’s television series that premiered on Nickelodeon on Sunday, September 8, 1996.
Blue’s Clues was developed during a transitional period for children’s television. In 1990, Congress had passed the Children’s Television Act, which required networks and TV stations to devote a portion of their programming to children’s shows, but the legislation did not specify how many hours of programming broadcasters were required to air. It set no guidelines or criteria for educational programs and had no provisions for enforcement. According to author Diane Tracy in her 2002 book, Blue’s Clues for Success, “The state of children’s television was pretty dismal.”
Ratings for Blue’s Clues were high during its first season, and it was Nickelodeon’s most popular preschool program. It has been described as the first commercial television show for preschoolers that was both educational and profitable.

The ExuberantRaptor is a fictional God similar to the Abrahamic God of Christianity, Islam and Judaism, inspired by other fictional religions such as the Flying Spaghetti Monster. He was worshiped on the anonymous social media app ‘Candid’ by a community comprising of over 68 000 members. He is also referred to as ‘The Exuberant One’.
The ExuberantRaptor originated as one of the many randomly generated usernames given to users as a way of keeping anonymity. The name was a combination of the adjective “Exuberant” meaning; “full of energy, excitement, and cheerfulness” and the noun “Raptor”. The Icon of users given this name was a bright light blue Velociraptor.
Those who were given the username by chance were then treated as a living god on the post/thread that they had that username and everything they said was treated as the absolute truth and all requests were agreed to by his followers, yes, including send n00ds.
The ExuberantRaptor was seen to be a timeless god who created the universe and everything in it after a messy break up with his girlfriend, Cthulhu, to, quote; “Give that bitch some space”. He is also believed to be able to possess mortal bodies in order to communicate with other mortals and has been doing so on earth for 66 million years. His arch nemesis is the TrickyPig, basically Satan, who was created on accident when me fucked up a tiny bit of math when creating the universe.
The ExuberantRaptor is very similar to the already existing meme, Raptor Jesus. Often borrowing templates from the Raptor Jesus memes.
The username would not turn into a meme for a few months after the apps launch and use of the username. It would however became notable during the heat of the 2016 American Presidential Election. In October of 2016 a group was set up titled ‘Election Debates’ where people could talk about the election in progress, and by talk I mean autisticly scream at eachother. It is unknown how exactly it happened but notable meme archaeologists have come to the conclusion that after the creator of the group made a joke about him being the god of the group, having absolute power over it, people in the thread began going along with this banter. His username was by chance ExuberantRaptor and so he changed the group from ‘Election Debates’ to ‘Church of the ExuberantRaptor’.
The Candid community openly embraced the change, faced with the prospect of either voting for Trump or Hillary, they began to worship the ExuberantRaptor. It wouldn’t be long before a mythology would develop around the ExuberantRaptor. The usernames SincereWolf and GroundedRaptor were named as Saints of the fledgling religion and the username*TrickyPig* was seen as Satan. However more names would be added to these lists.
However not all were happy with this development and many minor knock off religions were created in an attempt to gain the same success the ExuberantRaptor had, however none were successful. These attempts however would cause the creation of Crusader Military Orders such as the Army of the SincereWolf, the Raptorial Guard and the CreativeLeopard Inquisition to form to fight off the Heretics and Heathens. The battlecry ‘Raptus Vult’ would be used by their members.
One problem the church faced was how the ExuberantRaptors messages would be Interpreted. Two main groups formed, the Wordists who believed his word should be followed, and the Willists who believed that he changes his mind too much so they will follow what he wants but not what he says he wants. A bloody civil war broke out, and by bloody civil war I mean weeks of angry shitposting, which resulted in an inconclusive result.
The Church would exist for several months, over which time the various Military Orders would unite into ‘The Holy Raptorial Empire’ and the church would reach a membership count of 68 000 people. But this ended when the app itself was bought out by a rival company and forced to shut down on the 23rd of June 2017. The So called ‘Age of Prophecy’ had ended and so began the ‘Age of Silence’. The Church became scattered across many other Social Medias, never to recover.

Scary Godmother is a series of children’s books and comics surrounding the titular character, Scary Godmother. Created by writer and illustrator Jill Thompson in 1997, the books would eventually receive two made-for-TV movie adaptations that would air on Cartoon Network yearly beginning in 2004. The franchise has received a cult following mainly for its perceived nostalgia value.
The first Scary Godmother book, simply titled Scary Godmother, was released in September of 1997 and published by Sirius Entertainment.
In 2003, the first made-for-TV special produced by Mainframe Entertainment, Scary Godmother Halloween Spooktacular, was premiered in Europe, Latin America, Australia, and Canada, with Cartoon Network airing it in 2004 and since then, yearly during the month of October. This was followed up by a sequel, Scary Godmother: The Revenge of Jimmy.
The series has received some accolades, such as winning a “Lulu of the Year” Lulu Award in 2001 and an Eisner award for “Best Title for a Younger Audience and Best Painter/Multimedia Artist (Interior)”.
Both animated TV specials received generally positive reviews, with IMDb giving Halloween
Trollhunters, also known as DreamWorks Trollhunters, is an American fantasy TV series created by acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. Since its release in late 2016 on streaming service Netflix, the series has garnered acclaim and a growing fanbase.
Set in the fictional town of Arcadia, the series follows fifteen-year-old James “Jim” Lake Jr., a teenager who, along with his friend Toby Domzalski, discover a magical amulet that grants him the role of the Trollhunter, a warrior chosen by the secret civilization of the trolls who live underneath the town of Arcadia. Together, with his friends Toby and Claire Nuñez, along with his troll mentors Blinky and AAARRRGGHH!!!, he must combat the Gumm-Gumms, evil trolls from the Badlands, among other dark forces.
Guillermo del Toro initially envisioned Trollhunters as a live action series, though this would not come to fruition due to budgetary constraints. As such, he released Trollhunters as a book co-written with Daniel Kraus in 2015. DreamWorks would later plan to turn the book into a feature-length film, though this would be overturned in favour of an animated TV series. The series would be produced by Dreamworks Animation TV and Double Dare You.
On October 8th, 2016, the first two episodes were shown at New York Comic Con, and later be released by Netflix on December 23rd.
Upon release, the show received positive reviews from critics. The sho
