Famous Internet Memes Then And Now

Published

on

Memes are a central part of millennial and Gen Z humor. They can be almost anything, including a photo, video, or another piece of media like a screenshot. The point is they spread and spread fast to users all over the internet.

Memes started in the mid-2000s. Back then, they were pretty innocuous. While they were good for a chuckle, they weren’t the kind of thing you wanted to collect in a Dank Meme Stash. Nonetheless, that’s when many memes we still see today became famous.

The people in viral memes are enjoying (or not enjoying) an odd kind of fame. They’re known around the world but they didn’t ask for it. Some of them didn’t even know they were famous until they saw their image online.

Everyone has a different reaction to fame like that. Some of these meme celebrities (memelebrities?) have embraced their online image to the fullest. Some use it as a platform to talk about important issues. Yet others have gone on to have successful careers in acting or music. And well, some of them aren’t fond of the spotlight.

As Zoe Roth (that’s Disaster Girl to you) says, “I ultimately want people to know me for me.”

75 Comparison Images That Cause A Double Take

It’s amazing what you’ll notice when you open your eyes and view the world from a different perspective. That’s what these people found out. Their comparison photos examining the differences and similarities between things will blow your mind.

By looking at two items beside one another, they made some pretty fascinating realizations. Sometimes, it has to do with landscape changes across different seasons. Other times, it is related to people. For example, the mom who matched her face up with her daughter’s and realized that they were pretty much identical twins.

In the moment, one might never notice these sorts of things, but viewing the photos side by side helps to provide contrast and prime our minds for new realizations. Once you see the images for yourself, you’ll understand what we mean.

In the front, we can see the Titanic. In its heyday, it was celebrated for its incredible size. Yet, it is just a fraction of the size of the modern cruise ships today. Behind the Titanic is a picture of the largest cruise ship that currently exists.

Michelin makes a lot of different sizes of tires. Some are even larger than people are. For example, here is their biggest tire placed next to their smallest tire.

Motorola flip phones used to be all the rage back in the 90s and early 2000s. This one was crafted in 1998. The current smartphones make the old ones look so primitive.

73. Door Choices

These door handles show how many right-handed people there are at the school compared to left-handed people. The door on the right gets a lot more use. Although, part of that is because it is also a social norm to enter through the right.

Dad Brings Laughter With Tutorial On How To Put Baby To Sleep

Published

on

He’s a husband and father first, but he’s also a funny comedy video creator. This New Zealand dad creates entertaining videos that get lots of hits because they’re downright hilarious. Jordan Watson shares parenting tips and tricks on his youtube page, with a great tongue in cheek style, that other dads (or anyone who takes care of kids) can relate to. Each video has his comedic sense of humor with a deadpan delivery, as he parodies the “how-to” videos that are popular on the internet.

Jordan Watson, from Aukland, New Zealand is a part-time landscaper, full-time dad, and viral video creator.

His first video was just a goof he put together when he was left alone with his baby, Alba. The video is titled, “How to Hold a Baby” and is currently at 3.7 million views. And that’s not even his most-watched video.

In an interview with Stuff, Watson still can’t believe the video went viral overnight,

“It was just me cutting together, in my eyes, crap – just me being an idiot and thinking that one guy at work’s going to like it.”

He chalks his success up to,

“Every parent can kind of relate, and there’s so many people out there who’re aunties, uncles, they look after people’s kids… It’s just everyday scenarios with kids which has given me the inspiration for it.”

Jordan always wears his trademark shirt and shorts or as they’re called in New Zealand, Togs.

In this video, which currently has over four million views, Jordan offers his own witty advice on how to put a baby to sleep. He lists and demonstrates a number of techniques, all with a deadpan delivery that only Jordan can muster.

Some examples are “The Hypnotist,” where dad dangles a nearby toy in front of the baby and coaxes her to sleep.

Another good one is called “The Bribe Dad.” Where dad bribes the baby to go to sleep with, “tomorrow I’ll let you climb the curtains.”

There’s, “Method Acting,” where dad pretends to be sleepy himself, and lays on the floor in order to convince the baby to sleep, too.

“The Dad That Doesn’t Know A Single Lullaby,” where Jordan mumbles and mishmashes his way through what might sound similar to some known Lullabies.

The funny thing about this video is that the real star is not Jordan.

No, it’s his baby daughter, Alba. She is such an integral part of the humor, because nearly every time Dad tries his methods, they work. The little one lays down to go to sleep, and her comedic timing is perfect. Dad administers the technique, Alba listens, and then to our rousing laughter, she complies. Leaving Jordan to say,

“It’s never really that easy.”

In Stuff, Jordan had this to say about his daughter,

“I think if you take Alba the cute baby out of it, they’re not going to do very well – it’s definitely 99 percent her, 1 percent me.”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Many Youtubers are head over heels for this video, and it’s stars.

“How the baby could understand that he is acting?”

“This child should be the highest paid child actor!”

Another Youtuber wonders,

“I don’t know if that baby is just insanely intelligent, an animatronic, a paid actor or if the dad just really knows his stuff?”

Get ready to laugh with this video. And prepare to go down the rabbit hole as “How To Dad,” Jordan Watson, has an ever-growing collection of funny videos. He feeds his followers a video a week, and probably feeds his charming family with the proceeds.

All in, he’s a really great husband and father, enjoy his funny “how-to” below!

Restaurant Adds Cute Stuffed Pandas To Help Customers During Social Distancing

Published

on

The past couple of months have been tough.

Health concerns, loss of income, and not being able to socialize has been extremely frustrating.

We are social creatures after all and it is in our nature to want to spend time with one another.

I personally live with four other roommates, so getting my fill of social connection hasn’t been too hard.

But I know many people who live alone and haven’t interacted with anyone in quite a while–and it’s starting to take its toll.

Even with four people in my house, I’m still itching for some social interaction with others.

Luckily, restrictions around COVID-19 are starting to lighten up.

Although many stores and restaurants are still closed, we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for this whole quarantine business.

But things are still far from normal.

Even if stores are open, you’re still required to wear a mask and keep the recommended six-foot distance from everyone else.

So when one restaurant in Thailand opened its doors for the first time in months, they had some obstacles to overcome.

Maison Saigon, a Vietnamese restaurant in Bangkok, originally planned on having only one chair at each table to promote social distancing according to Insider.

But that just wasn’t cutting it.

When the owner, Natthwut Rodchanapanthkul, saw what the restaurant looked like with only one chair per table, he wasn’t satisfied.

He told reports at Reuters, “Earlier we had only one chair for the tables where the customer came alone. But for me, it felt strange, so I thought I’d give them some company.”

But how do you give someone company at a table when you aren’t supposed to be anywhere near each other?

By bringing in big stuffed pandas of course!

The owner placed stuffed panda bears in various chairs around the restaurant to give it a more cheery and inviting vibe.

It also helped reinforce the social distancing rule according to Bored Panda.

And it worked great.

One customer told Reuters, “The doll makes me feel less lonely eating by myself.”

Another customer explained that the stuffed animals not only improved the vibe of the place, but it made seating arrangements more clear as well.

He told reporters, “It’s a lot easier to understand compared to other restaurants where people always get confused about where to sit and end up sitting too close to each other.”

Now is the time when we need to get creative about the way that we do things.

Sure the owner of Maison Saigon could have just put up a bunch of signs that told people where they could and could not sit.

But how lame would that have been?

Nothing makes tough times harder than boring rules and stiff regulations.

It takes a little fun to shake things up!

And having a meal next to a giant, cuddly, cute stuffed panda sure does lighten the mood a bit.

So if you happen to be stuck at home by yourself right now, maybe give this stuffed animal trick a try.

Put a few on your couch, a couple at the dinner table, and maybe even one out on the deck.

Whatever it takes to get through this isolation period with a little bit of sanity is worth it.

And don’t be too surprised if you find that one small panda goes a long way.
