Welcome back to Internet Meme Monday! What is a meme you say? Well, as I understand it, a meme is similar to a gene, except instead of passing on genetic information it passes on cultural ideas. A meme can take many forms, from a catch phrase to a hand gesture, but the type of memes I’ll be looking at every second Monday of the month are “internet memes”.
On the agenda this month? I use the “Come at me!” meme for purpose of blasphemy!
“Come at me bro” is a great general purpose beginner’s meme. Basically you take any picture of someone/something with its arms held out, and write “COME AT ME BRO” in the usual impact font:
See? Pretty hilarious right? Especially considering the origin of the phrase come from The Jersey Shore and was actually uttered non-ironically by the roid-raging Ronnie:
You can tell how much they both wanted to fight!
Anyway, ridiculous origin story aside, I was screwing around with this meme a while back and made a bunch of “come at me bro” Jesus comics. See, Jesus, is always standing with his arms cast wide, and “come at me bro”-ers were quick to realize the comedic potential of adding the caption to pictures of the lord and savior.
Thus, with that as a starting point, I bring you three versions of Jesus trying to pull a Ronnie on Thor and getting his ass handed to him!
First, we have Ohio”s infamous “Touchdown Jesus.” Perhaps this explains why it mysteriously burned down one night:
Up next Rio Jesus gets taught a lesson in messing with the God of Thunder when you live on top of a mountain:
Finally we’ve got traditional white Jesus before he realized he should stay away from people with hammers:
