It is always a delight when your Original Content (OC for the OG’s) does what is supposed to do and is spread by the masses to enjoy. Memes are the ultimate expression of this impulse of enjoyment, sharing a point using cultural and thematic references to entertain and inform.
And so when I ate lunch today and clicked on ATF vs ARM BRACES I was delighted that my Among Us meme was.. Among Us.
Moreover it was shared and reposted and shown in all its entertainment glory. Mighty fine memery at its finest and mightiest.
Ironically perhaps, Travis has a post today covering gun industry IP theft for things like knock-off arm braces, holsters, and unLAWful folder copies. Memes are different, a reward unto themselves. I’ve seen people get the Big Mad for a meme not being credited and in certain instances it is a dick move not to credit. But a memes primary purpose is to spread like a vir.. CO..1.. 9… never mind, you know what I mean.. a meme is to be enjoyed.
It is so. So much so that it made it into Gun Meme Review! Huzzah!! Also this one has like one billion ad breaks, readers. YouTube went a little crazy.
There is only one higher honorific to memery, and that is for someone to share your own meme with you and not knowing you were its creator. Then you smile and enjoy the moment, an organic expression of your creativity that brightened someone’s day. That is the path to true memlightenment. Blessed are you all who have achieved memlightment.
