Yet I Still Don't Know How To Say 'Meme' Out Loud

By now, whether or not you know how to pronounce it ('meem' to rhyme with 'team'? 'Mee-mee' to rhyme with 'seamy'? 'Mem' to rhyme with 'them'? 'Morange'?), you should know what a meme is.

If you don't, then here's a hint, and Mum I think it's adorable that you still read my blog.

Either way, I have never been quite so enchanted in my life as I am with the ERMAHGERD meme. Because I'm all highbrow and university-graduatey and shit.

I was first made aware of it with this piece of pop-cultural magnificence:

Which quickly and firmly found its way into my heart and made me laugh until I farted just a tiny, tiny bit.

Quite soon, I became aware of other variations, most notably those of animals becoming quite excited about an impending meal or plaything or whatnot, thusly:

See, right, because bunnies like carrots.

Not wanting to miss out/badly wanting to fundamentally misunderstand the premise of this meme, I took it upon myself to make a few of my own.

This whole time I was just leading up to my own shit.
What, are you new here?

The CnB Initiative

I know. I know.
It's been a long time between thingetties on this here bizzo.
Of course, with Twitter taking care of all my brief things (except my actual briefs, but that's only a matter of time, surely), and Australia's Next Top Model being on hiatus until next year (any aspiring contestants can look up the word 'hiatus' here) what am I going to write about?


See, my mate Russ has an unofficial Pictionary rule that whenever you draw a picture, it has to include a cock n' balls in it somewhere. It doesn't have to be good. It just has to be present. Like this, for example:

I call this one 'Baby Fish Mouth With Cock N' Balls'
The always-classy Bert Maverick extended this rule to encompass Draw Something, so that everyone who plays against him gets an oddly malformed little bonus. Or 'boners', as it were.

Less than a week ago, Shellity and I were flying on an aeroplane in the sky, when she decided it might be fun to draw the good ol' Cock N' Balls in the inflight magazine. That got us talking like grown-ups, and the Cock N' Balls Initiative was born.

Here are the instructions:

1. Whenever you find yourself in the presence of publicly-available magazines that other people have access to, like inflight magazines or waiting room magazines (NOT shops that sell magazines), draw a cock n' balls in it. Anywhere you'd feel fine completing a crossword or quiz in a magazine probably qualifies.

2. If possible, take a photo of it and post it to your Twitter account or Facebook doo-hickey (I forget what they're called).

3. Leave the magazine for others to find.

4. If you happen to FIND a cock n' balls drawing that someone else has left for you, you can feel that warm, fuzzy feeling that only being part of a secret international community can give you. And also take a photo and post it.

Here's a couple to get you started:

QF431, Sydney to Melbourne, by Shellity.

QF425, Melbourne to Sydney, by me.

If we all work together, we can make the CnB Initiative a thing.

Who's in?
