Hoax-Slayer is one of those go-to sites when you want the cold hard facts on various chain letters.
But they have a gallery of memes they call "Fabulous Forwards" which they actually like because they are viral "'jokes' or 'humour' that tickled their funny bones, so, HS doesn't mangle them.
It's a different story here at MTM, though! We recognize viral 'humour' to be as annoying at least, if not as insidious as other memes. Viral humour is still memes, and let's face it, some of these jokes are not only stale and have already been received gazillions of times, but some of them are just awful to start with!
There are a few categories of these "fabulous forwards', they are:
Anti-chains (The worst most overdone reaction to other chain letters(
We're dealing with the Animals or "Furry Friends" category in this topic, since there are currently only seven entries, and they are heavy on the visuals, making the mangles rather short.
But the persistent notions about the attitudes dogs and cats are supposed to have, annoy the heck out of me.
The How Many Dogs Does It Take to Change A Light bulb and the Warning To All dog owners are mangled along with more of this cat VS. dog and anthropomorphic crap here.
🤣HS: Hillbilly Dogs
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Oh, great… *Rolling eyes*
🐜Meme: Subject: Fw Hillbilly dogs
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Bleck.
🐜Meme: Hillbilly dogs ...a picture's worth a thousand words :)
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I won't even try to imagine the monstrosities coming from this photoshopped crop of hounded horrors.
🤣HS: People You Work With
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah right.
🐜Meme: The Happy Employee
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: That would be me. But I have no idea what the picture is. Wouldn't suit me if it's a dog anyway.
🐜Meme: The Greedy Employee
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Don't know anyone like that.
🐜Meme: The Joker
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Pick a number. We're generally a pretty humorous bunch where I work.

🐜Meme: The Disgruntled Employee
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Not that I'm aware of…
🐜Meme: The Information Specialist
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Meh - I think that sort of applies to everyone a little.
🐜Meme: Keeper of the Nuts
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Uh no. Does not apply.
🐜Meme: The Expert
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Meh - applies a bit all across the board.
🐜Meme: The New Guy
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Or new girl. Not any more.

🐜Meme: The Mole
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: *Wince* Not!

🐜Meme: And Tadaaaa...
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: We have a couple of cool ones.
🐜Meme: The Boss's Wife
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: No such animal here. Both bosses are women.

🐜Meme: The Best Time of the year.....
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Wanna bet?
🤣HS: Best Positions In Bed
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Reading or sleeping… And for me at certain times of the year when the sun shines into my room on my bed, basking in the sun.
But these are just more pictures, and the subject line is probably meant to make you think naughty. There are 20 pictures, after which the chain says:
🐜Meme: And you thought it was going to be dirty Get your mind out of the GUTTER.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: See, I know your game. Someone once sent me a chain joke about a toothbrush, and it had the same glib phrase parroted above, after going through a long-winded description about how to brush your teeth.
🐜Meme: Scroll down more........
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Blah.
🐜Meme: These speak for themselves!
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: These additional eight pictures don't speak to me at all.
🤣HS: Beautiful Blond Pole Dancer!
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: *Rolling eyes* Probably a golden lab, this being among the animal joke category.
🐜Meme: Hope you don't mind a bit of risque, which I rarely send along! (Yeah right)
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah right indeed.
🐜Meme: If you should find it too offensive, please advise, and I will remove your name promptly from these type of emails!
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Unless this is another false alarm, in which case, I'd say your little speal is trying and failing to be cute.
🐜Meme: WARNING:(Open Discreetly)
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah, i don't believe you.
🐜Meme: Please scroll Down.......
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: From what my computer program says, there were seven arrows and one blond pole dancer image. Though the program can't actually describe what the image looks like. It could be a pole with a cat face that has blond hair for all I know.
🐜Meme: GOTTCHA !!
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: No you haven't. Because I didn't even get it in the first place.
🐜Meme: You naughty people with naughty minds!
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Uh, look, you're the one who created it with the forethought of naughtiness in mind…
