Participation trophy

That was one commenter’s reaction to some particularly lame post I read today. You tried. I dunno, maybe you had to be there — I thought third-degree burrrrn at the time.

Anyhoo, I made this.

My ambition is to make memes that go viral. And then I remember, nobody gets paid for that shit.

I’d like just a few seconds to address a class or team or whatever who just all got participation and undeserved self-esteem recognition to tell them, “None of you just won. None of you will ever win. Not keeping score is the habit of losers, and is a practice imposed on you by bad people whose goal is to see you all lose forever, no matter how good you are.”

One of your memes will take off, S.Weasel…you’re going to have the next Three Wolf Moon T-Shirt, I can feel it.

It would probably be the worst thing that ever happened to me, Quasi. I think about some of the poor souls who got internet famous and the hair on the back of my neck stands up.

Jacqueline Mackie Paisley Passey comes to mind.

it’s a funhouse mirror. Best to keep a small info footprint.

You have gotten a real metallic looking finish on that thing, which I seem to recall is very difficult to achieve. I must say I don’t like the smiley face on it, but then, as I hate smiley faces and everything they stand for, my opinion may be somewhat biased.

It’s no accident that the first two words in meme are me & me.

How about an adult (ahem) all-purpose Certificate of Participation 🙂 Sorta like your “Prizes for Everyone” medallion, but with Stoaty Weasel in the artwork, and blanks we can fill in. Maybe a Certificate of Merit. I dunno how you get paid for it, but it would go viral for sure.

If you are looking to create a meme you should know that cats are big on the internet. I’ve actually thought about uploading a picture of your cat to the Cheezburger site with a cleaver caption but I’ve got nothing. You’ve heard of Grumpy Cat, your cat could known as Crazy Cat or something.

I can’t see the Jacqueline Mackie Paisley Passey thing happening to you, S.Weasel…you’re quite humble and all your stuff is good for a chuckle…it’s not the same thing.

I guess I missed that post at Ace…pretty awesome takedown…he used to be more humourous than he is now…guess none of us feel as humourous as we used to…sign of the times, I guess.

When Cheezburger was new, I tried my hand at it. Much to my disappointment, I made nothing but lousy, unfunny captions. On a side note, however, I bumped into my brother there whom I hadn’t seen in years (we aren’t estranged, exactly, we’ve just never been close). For some reason, he was using his own real name. Stoopit.

Every once in a while, I’ve been sorely tempted to start a blog fight, Quasi. But it’s my worst nightmare to wake up and find the internet on my doorstep. There are some scary, scary people out there, and you never know when you’ll pop up on someone’s radar.

I agree, S.Weasel…there are some scary people out there.

We’re not scary, we just like writing “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” over and over. And talking to ladies.

If it makes you feel better, Van der Leun thinks you’re cool.

Hello! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay.
I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
