What do you mean vegetables are healthy?!? I chose this meme because it relates to the topic of health and food. I like this meme because it shows a naive baby questioning that vegetables are healthy. This pokes fun at the fact that good tasting foods cannot be healthy. The baby plays a role because they eat vegetables frequently being unaware of the health benefits. This relates closely to the topic of fun and foodie because healthy foods can in fact taste good!
This meme is known as “Skeptical Baby” because all memes associated with this image involve a baby questioning life. To explain in more depth, “The captions usually begin with the rhetorical setup ‘You mean to tell me…’ out of disbelief and describe various realizations about life that one acquires upon entering preadolescence, including basic social responsibilities and ‘white lies’ that are told by parents,”(knowyourmeme.com). This meme spreads because it incorporates humor into innocent, everyday questions. This meme in particular spread relatively quickly. To be precise, “Within eight days of creation, the Quickmeme page accumulated 1146 upcoming instances…”(knowyourmeme.com).
The next meme that I chose was:
I chose this meme because it is cute and funny and relates to the topic of food. I want Fun and Foodie to portray a humorous tone and I believe this meme doest exactly that. Fun and Foodie focuses on healthy food but also a healthy lifestyle. Although this picture portrays the little girl holding french fries I think we can all relate to what is known as “hangry” This meme exemplifies how important food is in our lives. It not only tastes good but it can control our emotions. I want the recipes that I post to make my audience this happy.
This meme is likely to have a high spread because it involves a cute little girl but it is also funny. This is not the only meme that involves a child crying and then smiling when they finally get what they want.
Lastly, I chose this meme:
I like this meme because it mentions a “diet”. This meme is funny like the other two that I mentioned, however, I like it because it makes fun of the term, “diet”. In my opinion there is no such thing as a diet. It is better to just eat as healthy as you can and treat yourself when you need it, not restricting and starving yourself! This meme also emphasizes the love for food!
All of these memes seem as though they are user-made content.
