And there is an instance where the word is actually used correctly in this, so, I can't just nix it out and replace it this time.
This joke meme was posted on Yahoo groups, which I found when looking it up after seeing it posted on former question site SodaHead.
The Sodahead gave the options of answering as: ✅ "They say "this actually happened" ✅ "I am not sure" ✅"All of the above"
No "none of the above" or "It never happened" which were what I would've chosen.
So, let's mangle this meme.
😏Meme: WRONG BITCH
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Ugh.
😏Meme: The train was quite crowded, and a U. S.Soldierwalked the entire length looking for a seat.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I'm sure this is going to be hilarious. Not. Probably another one of those where some country's representative gets to be the butt of some joke.
😏Meme: There seemed to be one next to a well-dressed middle-aged French woman, but when he got there he saw it was taken by the woman's poodle.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: *Rolling eyes* Right, because every French woman has a poodle that gets treated like royalty. Oh, please.
She could just hold the dog on her lap - if they would even allow pets on that train. When you travel by air, the pets go into a different part of the plane from the passengers. When livestock is transported by train, I would imagine it's the same thing there. Ditto for pets. So you just bungled it up from the beginning.
😏Meme: The war-weary Soldier
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Oh, my heart just bleeds. Make sure to paint this guy as "war-weary" to really get the sympathy thing going in order to excuse whatever stupidity he may do at some point in this story. If he was supposed to be on this train, they would've got him a seat… this isn't supposed to be city transit, after all.
😏Meme: asked, "Ma'am, may I have that seat?"
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: if he was a true gentleman, he would've went and asked another man for his seat, even for a little while, but no, he's got to pick on some woman he supposes to be French because she's got a poodle that shouldn't even be in the passenger area…
What whackadoos are in charge of this train anyway?
😏Meme: The French woman sniffed and said to no one in particular, "Americans are so rude.. My little Fifi is using that seat.."
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: *Rolling eyes* Because every French poodle is named fifi - give me a break. I never liked that name for a dog at all. It's much better for a cat or a monkey.
Besides, if this woman is talking to no one in particular, why is she speaking english? You said she was French, remember? Oh, right, it's to appeal to English-speaking Americans to re-affirm their opinion about the French as being snobby American-haters, oblivious or indifferent to the infinite suffering of the war-weary American soldiers…
Gah. *Frown* Not buying it.
😏Meme: The Soldier walked the entire train again, but the only seat available was under that dog.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Again, what shoddy railway was sleeping on the job here? This just doesn't ring true at all.
😏Meme: "Please, Ma'am. May I sit down? I'm very tired."
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: So why aren't any other passengers volunteering to stand up a while? And why doesn't this woman put her freaking dog on her lap? I'm still boggled as to how she got away with having the dog in the passenger area at all. This is just bull.
😏Meme: She snorted, "Not only are you Americans rude, you are also arrogant!"
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: so, she just says this out of the blue, for no reason when asked a simple question? How does she even know he's american? He could be Canadian for all she knows. But the chain letter says he's american, so, that's it I guess...
😏Meme: This time the Marine didn't say a word; he just picked up the little dog, tossed it out the train window and sat down. They all do that in these stupid memes.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: There it is, the long awaited stupidity I pretty much expected of him.
In the real world, it is not cool to throw live animals out of windows, especially moving vehicles. not your own dog, and certainly not somebody else's. offish as that woman was for the purpose of this chain letter, that dog was her property, and the soldier/marine had no right to steal it and toss it out a window, I don't care how tired and war-weary he claimed to be. he wasn't too tired to throw a tantrum and toss the dog, was he? If that seat had been taken up by a person instead, wouldn't he have tried to throw the person out the window? The dog shouldn't have been there, but considering this idiot's actions, neither should he. And I still say the people in charge of the train weren't doing their job.
😏Meme: The woman shrieked, "Someone must defend my honor! Put this American in his place!"
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Huh? Her dog's just been tossed out a window and she's going on about her honour? I guess she really didn't love her dog all that much after all and was only toating her around as a status symbol. Which makes me wonder, what did she do to coerce the railway to allow the dog in with the passengers? Raise a huge stink? Threaten to sue? what a loser.
Oh, and just a FYI, she certainly wouldn't have to be French to act this way.
I still don't see how throwing somebody's dog out the window constitutes insulting their honour.
If anyone did that to one of my pets, I'd be screaming blue murder, but my honour wouldn't be coming up. It would be more along the line of "You *censored killed my pet!" and I'm not sure I could restrain myself from throwing punches at that point." Just unabashed, raw emotion.
😏Meme: An English gentleman
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: *Rolling eyes* Now suddenly a third character just pops up out of the blue…
😏Meme: sitting nearby spoke up.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: So if he was such a gentleman and he was within earshot of this whole thing, why wasn't he a real gentleman and offering this idiot marine his seat? This just doesn't add up. Apparently he was content to sit back and watch the fireworks…
😏Meme: "Sir, you Americans seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You hold the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your autos on the wrong side of the road. And now, sir, you seem to have thrown the wrong bitch out the window.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Gentleman my foot.
and at that point, the train got derailed and during the accident, all three card-board character loser stereotypes were thrown out the window.
This viral joke makes bungling fools of all the characters, based on hate that needs to die already. It stinks.
