Do You Like Memes?


Being on Facebook is a love—hate relationship for many of us. I love many of the things I can see and learn on Facebook, but there's no way in the world that I can keep up with all the news from all my Facebook "friends." And honestly, I hate some of the things I see on Facebook — things that range from disappointing to hurtful.

One thing that I absolutely do love, though, is some of the memes that people post. For those not familiar with what a "meme" (rhymes with dream) is, here's the definition from Wikipedia: "an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture." A "meme" can be an image or a video or even a clever hashtag, but one of the most common is a picture with a caption written across it. Sometimes the picture helps illustrate the caption. Other times the caption makes an ordinary picture funny or a funny picture even funnier.

I thought a fun blog post would be one with some of my favorite memes I've seen.

A lot of memes have been done using a picture of Willy Wonka. The look on his face makes whatever snarky caption is displayed all the snarkier. I especially like this one, in light of today's post:

Meme makers often use easily recognizable pictures from movies, like the following one.

Why Women Live Longer than Men, Take 6


Last month on this date I published Why Women Live Longer than Men, Take 5. That post has links to the four earlier posts with similar pictures, so I won't put them in this post.

Anyway, I hope you will be amazed and amused at the innovativeness of some of the men on planet earth.

We men love to work with various forms of heavy equipment, like this brush chipper.

And we know that when working with sparks and welding, we need to be careful, as seen in the next two pictures.

Why Women Live Longer than Men, Take 5


After doing four posts with pictures that show why women live longer than men, I should have known that it would be only a matter of time until more pictures surfaced. And surface they did! I got an e-mail last week with many pictures that weren't part of the ones I had published. In fact, there are enough for two posts! Today's post is the first of the two. These pictures all have something to do with men and their lack of fear (read: sense?) about height and safety.

Not all heights are a problem, and yet falling is still not a good idea, as in this one....

There are other "scaffolds" that could be just a precarious.

More Mug Shots


In my blog post before last, I posted pictures of coffee mugs and asked my readers to share any that they personally like. Several people took me up on it in the comments to that post and by sending me some pictures. So I am posting today what they've sent.

Here's one about the downside of dating.

Here's one with a Herbert Hoover quotation on it.

Dogs or Cats?


The debate over which pet is better will never be settled, but that's not the goal of this blog post. I just have a few funny pictures of dogs and cats that have accumulated, begging to be released to the world at large. I hope they will give you a good laugh or smile.

I'll start off with dogs....

Some dogs are so beautiful that they're hard to resist. Here's one example of such animal magnetism.

If your dog needs help in the area of appearance, there are a couple of things you might consider.
