This meme of a little Vietnamese girl tracing her cat on a piece of paper needs little explanation - it's the perfect way to diss on all the haters and the fakers out there.
As if the Star Wars sequels weren't meme'd enough already, we've got yet another one for you that we're really digging at the moment. This trending meme, known as "Congratulations! You Are Being Rescued," is a jab at the evil art of gaslighting. Some of these satirical scenarios throw some major shade!
PETA's marketing team had a serious win yesterday after releasing their chart of alternatives to "anti-animal language." If you missed this, check out our post here. The reactions and trolling have been hilarious, and now people are creating their own memey parodies of the chart. And guess what? They're damn good.
It's no secret that people love to hate on PETA, but today that pastime is more popular than ever. The hardcore animal rights association took to Twitter yesterday to fight against what they call "anti-animal language" - and provided a handy chart on how to substitute ancient aphorisms with more animal-friendly terminology. The chart, as you can imagine, is wholly ridiculous.
Twitter users were quick to jump on PETA for suggestions like "Feed two birds with one scone" in lieu of "Kill two birds with one stone." Their trolling attempts have been ridiculously entertaining. We've included some of our favorite tweets, but for even more fun you can peruse the thread here.
Who knew PETA wanted to get into the Halloween costuming game?
By this time, you've all most likely heard of Cecil the lion and the American dentist who illegally killed him.
And also, you've maybe heard about the preeeeetty tasteless costume thrown together by costumeish.com so that Halloween revelers can celebrate in style. It looks like this:
The page says it includes "severed lion's head, smock with fake blood splatters, gloves with fake blood splatters, dentist tools in front pocket".
Hilariously, after a big outcry and even bigger petition, the page also says this:
Due to public outlash and petition launched by Doreen Harley and the almost 40,000 signatures along with the opinion of our company we will be donating 100% of the profit from our Lion Killer Costume to a Wildlife Foundation. Our intentions are not to make profit off the beloved Lion. However please remember, if our costume caused an immediate reaction such as disgust or anger to you just imagine how Cecil felt.
But that wasn't enough for PETA, because nothing's ever enough for PETA. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals put their best, most vegan minds to the job and created a Halloween costume of their own called "Cecil's Revenge Halloween Costume".
Here's a picture of it again.
The product page describes it as such:
Halloween aficionados can turn the table on trophy hunters' ghoulish pastime with this cheeky new limited-edition costume. "Cecil's Revenge" features a dentist's uniform with a "Dr. Palmer" name tag, complete with a plush lion grabbing the dental coat from behind, leaving bloody claw marks. Accessorize with a drill, a toothbrush, or a toy crossbow.
Oh, and it also costs $140.
So just know that come Halloween, you have many options available to you
It's very surprising no one has put together a sexy Cecil the lion costume.
PETA is launching a new headquarters in Minecraft on Saturday, as a safe haven where players are not allowed to harm animals… or at least their pixelated counterparts.
So for all you creative sickos out there - that means no compact chicken cookers, barbaric egg farms, cow torture chambers or pig slaughterhouses.
From PETA's website:
Visitors to PETA's custom-made digital island will explore vast expanses of landscapes where the animals of Minecraft roam free. They can also visit extensive vegetable and flower gardens, walk through a fantastic re-creation of PETA's HQ, and discover an abandoned and decaying slaughterhouse.
PETA has gone to the aid of video game animals before, including Pokemon, World of Warcraft seals, the Tanooki suit in Mario Bros., and dogs in Call of Duty.
What a world we live in...
