I just noticed my Sandwich from Lidl has a spiel on the side along the lines of ''When it comes to being more active, a few lidl changes can make a big difference.'' This is on the packet of a single sandwich into which they've somehow managed to pack 457 calories and 20g of fat. Slap a patronising pun about being active on anything and suddenly it's health food.

Sometimes, the line gets blurred in this thread. It is about infantilisation, not for complaining about the new thing you dislike. I could go on facebook if I wanted to see that shite.

I think a patronising, useless statement including a rubbish obvious pun counts as infantile. Maybe I'm just sophisticated though.

I wasn't referring to your post, sorry if I gave you that impression. It's the ones complaining about millennial slang that annoy me, usually offered with no explanation.

They fuckin Kabuto noodles

"When the character of a man is not clear to you look at his noodles"

"step 3. Replace lid tightly and wait 3-4 minutes (or practice your karate)"

"prepared with the discipline of a Samurai warrior"

Funny you mention the Samurai on your noodles lads as reading the tub makes me also not fear the sweet embrace of violent death

Well that's ultimatly the Unicode Consortium's fault, with their obsession for including every last twatty emoticon that has ever been posted by a cunt.

There are people who talk like this all the time. I looked at more of this person's posts and they use "heckin pupper" like it's a punctuation mark. Maddening. They all work in marketing, these people. They think that connecting with others means bludgeoning them over the head with standard memes.

And then there's those people who can only process society in terms of The Hunger Games, Harry Potter or The Handmaiden's Tale:



That is Will from The Thick Of It talking about Gandalf.

My theory (which might not stand up to scrutiny and is really just a reckoning) is that the people who do this are sociopathic, and cannot relate to things directly and so have to draw from examples. They can't care, but they can compare. (compcare)

And the examples they use are always things where they imagine themselves as the protagonist. Things that they can project on, so it's ultimately about them.

I think that's only half true. It sounds like you spend a lot of time on Facebook where people are generally quite dull because there's no filter. I think Twitter and even Reddit are better than that, because the better stuff filters more to the top and you're not just seeing the brainfumbles from a pool of people who are mainly just your own terrible cousins.

 I think meme culture can be really creative when it boils down to variations on a theme instead of reposting stuff. Like CaB taking that picture of that man who eats the old can of chicken with his wife looking on disapprovingly, making Photoshops of it (or even just reposting it in a really apposite context).

Well a lot people mean "meme" to mean literally "image with picture on" which isn't really right. It is viral ideas and jokes that spread naturally and used in different contexts and juxtapositions, exactly like the CaB old men.

Actually, the Virgin porn bill man is a bit of a mainstream meme.

Apparently a new cookbook has just become the 9th best selling book of all-time. It's called 'Pinch of Nom' and is of course based on a blog of the same name. Ffffffs.

Oh god, I read about that earlier today and thought of this thread. I've seen it crop up on Amazon before and assumed it was just a cash-in/bandwagon-jumping type thing with a hastily-picked 'trendy' name, I had no idea it was so popular.

Cookbooks really should be redundant now; I get them occasionally and cook one or two recipes from them. Generally if I want to cook something new I'll google it (perhaps it's in my cookbooks, fuck knows) and find one that looks like it's going to be good without a massive pain in the arse with regards to sourcing and preparing ingredients.

I reckon I might even go with macropricing for individual recipes for chefs I trust.

Having seen a pic of the authors, I think 'Mountain of Nom' would have been a better name.
