Yesterday, Bill Cosby, or Billy Cosby’s PR team, created and posted a Cosby Meme Generator to the star’s website and then tweeted the following request: “Meme me! #CosbyMeme” And oh, did they, but not in the way the “Cosby Show” star and Jell-O spokesman expected. (Here are some examples of what they did expect — YAWN.) But maybe they should have anticipated that people would use the meme generator to draw attention to the more than a dozen women who have accused Cosby of sexual assault or rape over the years. After all, just last week, Queen Latifah canceled an interview with Cosby that was due to air on her talk show because of renewed interest in those allegations. Whoops! Here are just 10 examples of the internet blasting Cosby as a sexual predator using his own meme generator (which has since been taken down off the site, of course). [The Verge] Keep reading »
Seriously, what is going on? Just a week after two 12-year-old girls attempted to murder a classmate as an appeal to the fictional internet character Slender Man, a woman from Hamilton, Ohio, claims that she was recently attacked with a knife by her 13-year-old daughter — and that the child was obsessed with Slender Man as well. According to Raw Story:
“I came home one night from work and she was in the kitchen waiting for me and she was wearing a mask — a white mask,” the woman said. “She had her hood up and had her hands covered with her sleeves and the mask.”
“She was someone else during that attack,” the mother added.

This story is so full of WTF, I almost don’t know where to begin. Two 12-year-old girls — their names have been published elsewhere, but as they are minors, I am choosing not to — are accused of stabbing another 12-year-old girl 19 times and then leaving her for dead in a Wisconsin woods. CNN said the victim had to literally “crawl to her own rescue” and was found on the side of a road by two passerbys on bikes, who called the police. The little girl immediately told the police who was responsible for the attack, and the two accused girls were taken into custody. According to police, the two had been planning the attack on their friend/classmate for months, with the intention of killing her, in the hopes of impressing someone called “The Slender Man.”
Yeah. WTF. Keep reading »
If brides were to toss kittens into the crowd for all the single ladiez, I would actually make an effort to grab it. Bouquets, on the other hand, are best handled with a subtle side-step away from whatever direction they’re going in. No cats were harmed in the making of this meme, but it does serve as additional evidence in the case for Photoshopping a cat into every picture ever. So much better! [Brides Throwing Cats]
I’ve always been someone who wasn’t scared to share pics of myself online or to post a profile picture. In fact, I always enjoyed sharing pictures of myself with friends or in the Facebook pages I helped run for different groups I am involved with at my university.
That was until I received an awkward, random message on OkCupid as I was going to sleep a couple of nights ago:
“…I am messaging because I saw meme with your photo earlier tonight. … I hate to be the one to let you know that. Hopefully they get flagged and its [sic] taken down.”
At first, I wasn’t sure if I believed him. See, when you are openly fat and feminist on a dating site, it isn’t uncommon for randoms to harass you. For whatever reason I felt like he was sincere, so I messaged him back and tried to figure out what page he saw it on. I looked on anti-feminist subreddits, I checked the Facebook page he thought it was on, and I couldn’t find anything. I chalked it up to exactly what I thought it was, another OkCupid douche canoe messing with me. Keep reading »
