Five memes you need to stop using

Internet memes — the contagious inexplicable trends that make people post pictures of cats with quotes or bad puns related to basketball star Jeremy Lin — are getting, well, linsane. Visit your Facebook profile on any given day, and instead of getting flooded with the usual invitations to events you won’t attend or photos of babies you don’t care about, you will be wel- comed by lincredible posts lin your face that will be repeated to linfinity. The weird thing is that,

after a while, you’ll under- stand the meme — a true sign that you’re spending way too much time online

— and you will attempt

to use it. This is when your friends will kindly tell you that the meme has gotten old and bother- some. Your linability to linguistically linclude and linundate your friends with the same nonsense will bother you. But fear not. Though you won’t be able to get rid of head- lines that start with “Lin” for the time being, there are other memes that come and go. You must resist the urge to repost them because you think they’re funny. Remember that the moment you post them is the very moment the thing stopped being funny. Your friends will make sure to remind you of that. As a service to the com- munity, and because we don’t feel like writing any- thing of real substance, we hereby provid you with a handy list of recent memes that have most likely inundated your online space (If you’ve never been online, don’t start now. It’s filled with cats, anyway).

• Pictures of people saying things. This is the practice of having nothing original to say, so it consists of posting an image that involves an overly long quote with a photo of the person who

said the quote. This image will be initially posted by someone and reposted by one of your friends. Then another friend will post a constructive comment

— like, “LOLZ. Totally

stealing this :D” — and then said friend will pro- ceed to post it on his or her wall, ensuring that the same image appears

Lots of dogs, but cat takes main prize

By IVAN LAJARA Life Editor

D OGS were the big winners of the Freeman’s pet

photo contest this year, as hundreds of entries flooded the Freeman’s mailbox and servers. But the coveted top prize went to a cat. As a sign of the times,

this year’s digital entries far outnumbered the mailed submissions. Many came via mobile devices. Save for a handful of entries, all submissions this year — close to 400— were cats and dogs. Many of these animals were rescued. With that comes the idea of rescuing animals and

giving giving th them caring homes.

On the Web
A video feature, eight
slideshows featuring
the winners and most
sumbissions and a few
more surprises are available at
http://www.dailyfreeman.com

The process:

As in the past, finalists were chosen for originality, spontaneity, beauty and photo quality. After a comprehensive sorting process by intern Celia Seupel, judges picked three entries in each cat- egory. The best three posi- tions were tallied from those votes. The Freeman’s Paul Kirby was recruited at the last minute to break tied entries. Although most entries were acceptable, a large number were disqualified for not conforming to estab- lished rules. Judges for the contest this year were Rachel Steres, Paula Mitchell, Dwayne Kroohs, Nick Henderson and Ivan Lajara. Tie breaker

was Paul Kirby. Once again, the Free- man thanks you for your participation. Send an email to life@freemanonline.com with comments or sugges- tions.

Telltale burns prove smoker hasn’t cleaned up his act

E 5 Telltale burns prove smoker hasn’t cleaned up his act DEAR ABBY: “Dwayne,” my boyfriend

DEAR ABBY:

“Dwayne,” my boyfriend of eight years, insists on smoking in his bed- room. In our last apart-

ment he’d fall asleep with

a lit cigarette and ended

up burning holes in our couch, numerous blankets and pillows as well as the carpet. When we moved, Dwayne assured me he had stopped, but a month ago I noticed his blanket and mattress have burn holes and so does the car-

pet by his bed. We live together with our 6-year-old son and,

needless to say, I’m scared

to death Dwayne will burn

this place down. I have talked to him about it numerous times. All he does is yell and say it won’t happen because cigarettes are “safer now.” I have discussed this with our landlord to no avail. I thought about call-

ing social services, but

I don’t want to get him

Dear Abby

ing social services, but I don’t want to get him Dear Abby in trouble. I could

in trouble. I could really use some good advice. -- SCARED FOR MY LIFE IN MILWAUKEE DEAR SCARED:

Because Dwayne is unwill- ing to be more respon- sible, it’s time to consider your son’s safety and your own. Your boyfriend is not only addicted to tobacco, he is also misguided. If cigarettes were “safer now” there wouldn’t be burn holes in his bedding and the area surrounding where he sleeps. If moving isn’t feasible, at least make sure there are working smoke detectors in your apartment and an extra

one outside Dwayne’s bed- room door.

Frankly, it would be health- ier for you and the boy if Dwayne didn’t smoke at all

in your apartment because

the Environmental Protec- tion Agency has classified secondhand smoke as a Group A carcinogen. To verify this, and get fur-

ther information, contact the American Cancer Soci- ety (800-227-2345) or the American Heart Associa- tion (800-242-8721). DEAR ABBY: My hus- band died 13 years ago. Since then I have pret-

ty much lost everything,

except the grief. Recently

it occurred to me that I

have some photographs his siblings and nieces might like copies of.

I don’t want them to know where I live -- in

a battered old trailer -

- because I’m ashamed. They are all well-to-do and

never seemed to like me.

No one has spoken to me

since my husband’s death.

I don’t want it to seem

like I’m expecting anything in return because I’m not, nor do I want to see them

socially. I know I don’t fit in with them. I’d just like to do something nice since we all loved him. From experience

I think they’ll find some way

to misinterpret or misunder- stand the gesture. I’ll be hurt and, added to the depression and grief, I don’t think I could handle it. What do you advise? -- MISSING MY MAN IN CALIFORNIA DEAR MISSING YOUR MAN: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your husband. You have

given me four valid reasons not to reach out to your husband’s family, the most important of which is that if you get another round

of rejection from them it will crush you. That’s why I

advise against it. Because they haven’t spo- ken to you or included you

in 13 years, on top of the fact you never felt accepted in the first place (your words)

-- the healthy thing for you to

do is to keep your distance.

However, because in all this time you have been unable to

finish your grieving process,

I urge you to consider grief

counseling. DEAR ABBY: We recent- ly celebrated the milestone

birthday of a dear friend with

a party. In honor of the occa-

sion we presented her with a very nice bracelet with vari- ous fabricated gemstones set in a nice silver setting. As she was identifying the names of the stones, I blurted out that they “weren’t real” because I didn’t want her thinking we

were trying to pass them off as the real thing. Now I’m afraid I might have cheapened our gift - - although believe me, her bracelet was not cheap. I feel like an idiot. Should I try to

fix this mess or just let it be? -

- FOOT IN MOUTH IN THE SOUTHWEST DEAR FOOT IN MOUTH: I think enough

hasalreadybeensaid.Wheth-

er the stones in the bracelet were natural or man-made, the thought behind the gift was genuine.

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also

known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA

Five memes you need to stop using

on your wall again. This chain of events will repeat itself until it has reached all your friends and every other post you see is that image. (The other posts are requests to play “Cow Clicker,” the amazing game where you get to click on

a cow and wait for a long

time before you can click on the cow again.) Anyway, this is a bulletproof way of making people hate you. And Gandhi quotes. To prove the point, we went to Facebook, and posted a

photo of a crazy dude with long hair along with the fol- lowing quote: “I’m getting kind of tired of people post- ing photos of a dude with a

eos. These videos exploded over last month. They con- sist of a quick succession of familiar sayings from people from a particular group — girls, journalists, NPR lis- teners, Gothamists and, of course, cats. There are even

“Stuff people say about stuff people say” and “stuff

nobody says” videos. You probably thought these were all silly and infantile, until you saw the one about your profession and/or hobby and thought it was hilari- ous, posted it on Facebook and then complained that

people just don’t understand knitters (cats do, but for different reasons). Also, the S-word in the title, for the record, is not “stuff.”

• “What People Think

I Do” images: These are

posts consisting of six

images that try to illustrate how different people view

a specific profession, be it

poets, artists, librarians and

all those other unemployed people who now spend their

time creating “What People Think I Do” images and clicking on cows.

• Linsanity. This is the

practice of trying to add ‘Lin’ to every word in the dictionary even if everyone’s

tired of it already. It also is

a candidate for the Word of

the Year, according to the American Dialect Society. But they have linguists, so they’re biased. • Publicly complaining about memes. If there is something more annoying than “What People Think I Do” images it is people who complain incessantly about them -- with “What People Think I Do” images, which is exactly what we did. Surprisingly, we were told people are getting tired of

this already.

But we’re unfazed, as we are busy and important. Now, if you excuse us, we have some cows that need

to be clicked on.
