Car Memes are Bullshit
The title is pretty self-explanatory but I will entertain you as guests of my rambling automotive composition. You may at first think I am just some loony guy who has had his feelings hurt by a meme created by some “bro” about my preferred car group. However, before we get to far along, let me preface with this, I truly claim no group, no affiliation, or any brand preference when it comes to automotive awesome. I, in simple prefer cars with a particular purpose, whether that be straight line performance, road course lapping, setting a new world record for mpg, hell I don’t care just as long as it’s doing something well, I like it.
All of that said, we live in an interesting time, where we have a combination of opinion based ass holes, never-ending pictures, limitless networking capabilities and a sense of anonymity based immortality found through the interwebz. What do we get with this set of variables? Opinion based memes about cars and car enthusiasts that are often vast generalizations and/or bold faced lies.
I will admit many of them are quite funny and even accurate time and again. Unfortunately, for every meme with an honest to goodness intelligent thought behind it, there are twenty or thirty ridiculous memes that are degrading and flat out wrong that still get spread around like a venereal disease in the red light district before the advent of Penicillin.
As readers what do you think about car memes? Do you like/Dislike them? If so what do you like/dislike about them?
I’ll end with this.
