Internet Memes, absurdity, wordplay


I've been on a kick lately with some of the newer Internet memes. In addition to the lolcats phenomenon (see image) and the "im in ur (blank), (blanking) ur (blank) - my favorite being the one with the parakeet and the macaroni - I've also become incredibly amused by the "Let Me Show You It/Them" and "You're Doing It Wrong." variations.

Last night I sat down and did a little work on a number of late 19th century philosophers, and today as I was mulling over random concepts, it occurred to me that the pomposity and egomania of a certain rich guy deserved to be lampooned a bit. So: My Twisted Humor, Let Me Show You It.
