Israeli portal Walla reports: Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu presented an insultingly silly graph at the UN this week, not-really illustrating Iran’s imminent nuclear capability:
Reddit novelty accounts that illustrate comments are a genre, we’ve pointed that out. Today’s account, AKineticTypographer, has posted six kinetic-typography GIFs in twelve hours, each one featuring a comment in a different popular Reddit thread. Here’s their best work so far.
Breaking Bad season five starts Sunday, so to catch everyone up, here’s a recap of last season’s major events, starring Insanity Walter, Awkward Gus, Marie Problems, and more.
Season 4 spoilers, obvs.
Famously bad YouTube rapper Krispy Kreme has a new video out, “Stolen Bikes”. It’s slick, but still adorably homemade, and it builds on the narrative of James (who kidnapped Money Mike in “Best Friends”). And it’s probably the moment the media discovers what hip-hop fans have known for weeks now: Krispy Kreme is a hoax.
How believable was it that Krispy Kreme was really a semi-illiterate hick? How could lyrics like “Even if you had infinity knives, I would punch you up into the air like a kite” not be intentionally goofy, the work of a comedian doing a rap joke?
I always assumed so, but intelligent internet-appreciators like writer Greg Rutter took Krispy Kreme as legit, and Know Your Meme, Wikipedia and Best Week Ever never suggested a hoax. (Though the Huffington Post’s Andres Juaregui suspected something.)
So I started to believe there really was a mouth-breathing rural rapper who was just accidentally entertaining. Stupidity was a magical power superior to talent, and some day the only working comedians would be unintentional ones.
A lot of advice meme practitioners on Reddit seem to disdain child-based memes, in a way that, say, Tumblr doesn’t. I get it partly — they rehash the same “this little piggy” and “pooped my pants” jokes. But every meme’s repetitive.
It smacks of “look at my cute kid”-ism, maybe? And the single-male cohort of Reddit looks down on those who have chosen to spill their seed into a woman, fertilely.
Well, other Redditors make them anyway, and Drunk Baby is funny.
When Redditor manute3392 posted the image of a “Skeptical 3rd-world child”, user Scorp63 said, “Time for /r/AdviceAnimals to beat this dead into the ground for the next 12 hours, then complain about it being over used.” Yup!
Manute3392 says the photo is from another Redditor working for the Student Global Health Alliance. I say it’s a Coke bottle from the gods, which is probably a racist joke sorry.

If you’ve made good life choices on Tumblr, you’ve seen this photo reply by Einstein on Acid:
Well this is just part of a whole hilarious movement of replies to hand-drawn-sign boys. It’s “I am the 99%” parodies all over again.
