  • Meme review.

  • Welcome everybody to my brand new show called...

  • Meme Review.

  • You guessed it

  • this is a completely original idea that no one has ever done before.

  • And uh, therefore I am proud to copyright this idea so that no one else can do what I am doing.

  • meme review©

  • I will take down anyone with copy STRIKES

  • I have lawyers

  • BEWARE!

  • or else I will be very

  • A N G E R E Y

  • On this very first meme review

  • its--this is a historic moment of this channel,

  • we're going to pick a meme, somewhat recent.

  • Maybe you've seen it a week ago, it was a webcomic and it goes like this...

  • My bike got stolen recently.

  • Sad face.

  • But I think whoever stole it was probably more happy to get it than I am sad to lose it

  • The total happiness in the world increased.

  • So whatever.

  • Now despite being the most retarded sense of logic I've ever heard

  • it's an innocent little webcomic.

  • But boi oh boi, did the internet not take this well.

  • People immediately started to parody this way of thinking.

  • Uh, and uh some of the responses are very funny.

  • Sonic got killed recently.

  • I was pretty bummed about it

  • but I think whoever killed him was probably more happy to see him die

  • than I am sad to lose him.

  • The total happiness in the world is increased

  • So whatever.

  • As long as total happiness in the world is increased

  • Whatever.

  • Amirite?!

  • We also have,

  • My bike got stolen recently.

  • I was pretty bummed out about it.

  • But then I thought...

  • *breath in*

  • WHERE'S MY FUCKIN BIKE?!!

  • these are pretty innocent parodies

  • Owlturd even, uh, retweeted them himself.

  • But then there's uh... *giggles*

  • then there's uh...the..the more...

  • DANK ONES?!

  • *AIR HORNS*

  • My wife got fucked recently

  • I was pretty bummed about it

  • but I think whoever fucked her

  • was probably more happy to get it on

  • than I am sad to get cucked.

  • The total happiness in the world is increased.

  • *laughs*

  • *breathes in*

  • Uh, after this amazing way of thinking sort of spread around the internet

  • this comic strip got renamed to "Bike Cuck".

  • The creator of the meme reached out and said

  • "Please stop calling me Bike Cuck."

  • and their response *laughs* was

  • "I guess he just doesn't appreciate that the joy others experience

  • in perpetuating the bike cuck meme

  • is greater than the joy he would have experienced it not being called bike cuck."

  • *laughs at turnaround*

  • *Inhales really sharply/implodes lung*

  • As can happen with the internet and things going viral it can be a bit overwhelming...

  • and, uh, Shen even said that he's gonna take a break because of "personal stuff"

  • and then of course people made...

  • My favorite artist stopped-- *laughs*

  • My, favorite artist stopped posting recently,

  • I was pretty bummed out, about it but i think whoever bullied--

  • *laughs*

  • *laughs some more*

  • uh..was...

  • Okay

  • Alright

  • but I think whoever bullied him into it was probably more happy to do it than I am sad to lose him

  • The total happiness in the world increased

  • so whatever.

  • Conclusion

  • of this meme.

  • I really enjoy Owlturd's work

  • some of them are really really funny

  • uhhhhhh

  • When I was looking around

  • he's, he's a great artist

  • no doubt about it

  • And he even said himself he's okay with the memes

  • and the reason he took a break was because...

  • Uhhhhmmm

  • "Other personal issues"

  • that somehow appeared at the exact same time

  • So you know he's embracing the joke

  • and which is always appreciated

  • it never looks good if you don't, at least.

  • But and even some of the responses that I saw underneath his tweet

  • Literally if you go to the--the tweeting question

  • the first response is

  • "This precise bullshit is why hedonism is exactly trash.

  • Any society based on your bullshit concept would collapse

  • I'm not saying you should be more upset.

  • I'm saying that the reason you aren't means that you don't understand utility or deontology.

  • Learn."

  • "And while I'm at it...

  • *epic music*

  • *laughs*

  • It's like Jesus Christ, dude.

  • At the end of the day it's just a webcomic

  • "And while I'm at it...

  • how regular, and high an income do you have

  • to write something like this...

  • oh my god

  • I understand him taking a break

  • and...

  • At the end of the day

  • Wh--wh--who, who am I or anyone else

  • to tell them how to feel

  • about something happening, you know?

  • Although the whole letting go something

  • I-I sort of understand that in the sense of

  • when I donate stuff

  • that I maybe have a personal attachment to

  • maybe uh...

  • some sweater that I don't really like anymore

  • but it has some sort of sentimental value

  • *ring*

  • And my door is ringing

  • goddammit...

  • *Edgar barking at door in background*

  • *answering the door*

  • Hello?

  • *elevator music*

  • *door opens*

  • *burps*

  • But this is not the first time, web comics have been criticized

  • there's the.. famous

  • Buzzfeed, web comic Books of Adam which

  • which uh

  • Some would say not me of course i love, Books of Adam, it's my favorite web comic of all time some

  • Some would say

  • not me of course I love "Books of Adam"

  • it's my favorite web comic of all time

  • some would say it's a bit lazy

  • I mean I don't see it

  • I see attention and detail into every single strip

  • and, uhhh, I definitely don't see

  • Reuploading the same webcomic

  • two years later

  • which i have never done with my videos

  • *laughs*

  • *wheezes*

  • But, my favorite webcomic meme of all time

  • will claim

  • Is this

  • if--if you know, this meme you know, what this means

  • if you don't know, what this means...

  • it's hella confusing

  • what about this meme

  • does this ring a bell?

  • this is the same meme

  • it is this one

  • now I had--I had seen this meme for a long time

  • and I didn't really get it and

  • it's a sort of meme that you need to know the backstory of to get

  • so in case you have-don't know the backstory

  • don't worry

  • I'm going to spend the next ten minutes

  • explaining it to you *laughs*

  • because there's nothing inherently funny about this, uh, comic strip

  • itself

  • but at the same time

  • it is

  • *laughs*

  • Now this, uh, comic strip is from

  • "Ctrl+Alt+Del" which you, may have heard of before

  • uh, it sort of came from, ah,

  • the renaissance

  • of webcomics back in 2008

  • the, the four-by-four kind of comic strip

  • was popularized

  • and it was about, uh, two guys sitting on a couch

  • playing video games

  • very

  • hilarious

  • but surprisingly

  • "Ctrl+Alt+Del" was very popular

  • it did really well

  • for its time

  • and uh, it sort of worked that Tim--Tim would add himself

  • into the cartoon in the best way possible i would say

  • "My name is Tim Buckley.

  • I'm a 24 year old gamer

  • I've played every violent game in existence

  • and I have never killed anyone

  • *music intensifies*

  • There are millions of gamers just like, me and we're getting sick of people like you blaming your problem on us

  • There are millions of gamers just like me,

  • and we're getting sick of people like you

  • blaming your problem on us!

  • Ignorance causes violence not videogames man up and take responsibility

  • not video games

  • man up and take responsibility

  • We outnumber you

  • We outnumber you and the people that think like, you don't fuck with us

  • and the people that think like you

  • don't

  • don't fuck with us

  • fuck with us."

  • *garbles* "don't fuck with us"

  • Despite being very popular

  • "Ctrl+Alt+Del", uh, it sort of

  • became more and more criticized over time for lacking

  • how to tell a joke properly

  • which is ironic of me to talk about

  • but

  • Tim would often blow out the punch line

  • Before the end of the strip

  • and uh sort of beating the joke itself to death

  • and it became a meme to remove the middle strip

  • and somehow his comic strip, would be then funnier

  • "All ready to go?"

  • "I don't know..."

  • You haven't told me where it is that we are going."

  • *car accelerates*

  • "Aaaand...Done, finally."

  • "...When did we get a bowling ball?!"

  • *laughs*

  • "Ctrl+Alt+Del", was also criticized for having

  • way too much unnecessary

  • text

  • now where have

  • we heard that before

  • a webcomic with too much text

  • I can't possibly think of anything

  • oh, uh, ohhhh, ohhhh

  • Oh

  • now the year sort of went by between uh

  • between

  • slightly sexist jokes

  • and uhm

  • slightly racist jokes

  • again, ironic for me to talk about

  • Out of nowhere

  • comes this comic strip

  • titled "Loss"

  • and it sort of hit people

  • uh

  • for being so blatantly out of nowhere

  • that it sort of became the joke itself

  • no one was expecting this

  • and the 4x4 panel of comics

  • is

  • typically used to make a setup

  • and then the last strip being the punchline
