Three serious questions for young people, since I’m just a caveman and your world frightens and confuses me:
Why is this photo funny? Moreover, why is it funny to write things in broken English in conjunction with this photo? Lastly, how is it possible that people spend a decent chunk of their time on memes like this one?
I am impossibly old and do not understand anything. So thank you for your time.

So … just in time for Gun Appreciation Day, this apparently became a thing.
Owning an AR-15 assault rifle and racial equality are the same thing now.
At what point will people be ashamed of themselves? And why didn’t we reach that point before people made this meme and put it on the internet?

"One does not simply walk into Mordor."
Benjamin Netanyahu, renowned Israeli prop comic and prime minister, visits United Nations, inspires internet memes … as well as jealousy from rival prop comics, Carrot Top and Gallagher, and rival chart-wielding politician Ross Perot.
It seems that a bunch of people either somehow find it amusing to take pictures of themselves posing as a deceased Trayvon Martin or else they just don’t understand the difference between getting good attention and bad attention for your actions.
As my friend who blogs over at The Noob Yorker rightly points out:
When you mock and belittle the death of Trayvon, you reinforce the racism that underpins our social institutions and in the process produce more events akin those in Florida.
I understand that everyone wants to make the next hot meme and get the internet to pay attention to them for a minute. But, seriously, stop behaving this way. It is awful.
