Meme of the week: Condescending Wonka needs peer review

Condescending Wonka is, well, kind of rude. The thing is, he's usually right.

The basis of the meme is a picture that comes from 1971's "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" starring legendary funnyman Gene Wilder.

According to Know Your Meme, the theme was originally "Creepy Wonka" and it intended to be a platform for candy-based sexual puns. That didn't last long, apparently. Hmm...

Meme of the week: Conspiracy Keanu on One Million Moms

Earlier this week, retailer JC Penney released a new Father's Day catalog featuring a pair of actual, happily married dads (Todd Koch and Cooper Smith) and their kids.

This ad seriously upset Christian conservative group One Million Moms (which is actually something like 46,000), who also had their panties in a bunch over the retailer hiring Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson earlier this year.

Yes, bicep size is an indicator of sexual orientation, but I'm sure you knew that already.

While the Redneck Randal meme has mostly picked on the stereotype of a southern, inbred NASCAR fan that likes to speed date at family reunions, this Redneck Randal meme highlights the backward views of marriage equality that some 60 percent of North Carolina voters expressed yesterday when they voted to enact Amendment One.
