It’s the end of August and thoughts — naturally — turn to frozen yogurt and memes. So, we suggest you not fight it and embrace these three memes you should know about.
Miley Cyrus at the VMAs
The VMAs may be a relic of another era, but the music-video show still knows how to generate chatter, particularly online. But Miley Cyrus’s booty-shaking antics are best summed up with the gifs of famous paintings that were Cyrus-ified and unleashed on Buzzfeed by Jen Lewis. These two IMO are the best of the lot. Though the Miley Cyrus tag on Tumblr is pretty good and yes, Miley Cyrus has not one or two, but at least THREE Twitterfeeds dedicated to it. Enjoy.
In the realm of creepy/hilarious is this new Twitter meme that fuses the netizens’ need for cleverness and social commentary. #NSAPickupLines is a perfect cocktail of wit and horror.
I’ve always thought your bookshelf says a lot about you (including the fact that you READ, which is increasingly rare nowadays), so this meme is a welcome peek into the lives of readers everywhere: #bookshelfies — and it may be redundant to mention that this is a hashtag populated with a lot of women wearing glasses. No word yet on how those of us with tons of ebooks can participate in this meme.
