I'm not usually sad after a meme-mangle, but there's always a first time. I got through the tips all right, it was the extras that did me in.
Want to see just how badly it can go when you replicate horrid attempts at humor?

🗣Meme: TenGreat Tips For 20xx
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Well, let's see how great they really are.
🗣Meme: Plus some extra's
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Extras as in, urges to pass it on?
🗣Meme: 1. Stay out of trouble.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I try to, but trouble always finds me when it comes in the form of annoyance at memes!
🗣Meme: 2. Aim for greater heights.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: There's nothing wrong with my height and I'm not gonna start growing now.
🗣Meme: 3. Stay focused on your job.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Like the one right before me, mangling this thing to pieces? Sure, no problem! Oh, and I don't need chain letters telling me to stay focused on my real job either.
🗣Meme: 4. Exercise to maintain good health.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I'll exercise when I feel like it and am in good health, so don't need some meme telling me to.
🗣Meme: 5. Practice team work.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Where am I gonna get a team? Besides, that only works offline. Online is a whole different story, IMO.
🗣Meme: 6. Rely on your trusted partner to watch your back..Take your timetrusting others.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: What partner? Uh, I don't need chain letters of all things, telling me about trust!

🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I will, once I'm done with this mangle.

🧝♀️Ocean Elf: *Rolling eyes*
🗣Meme: 10. Realize that nothing is impossible.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Actually, there are some things that are impossible. For instance, you attempting to somehow impress me into re-sharing this chain via email or social network.
🗣Meme: Thisshould make you smile:
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: It doesn't.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Which I'll have back once I've done mangling this meme.

🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Is there supposed to be a plot in here somewhere?
