What My Friends Think I Do... meme

I think that memes organizing and swirling around the 800M Facebook users is probably like those bird "murmurations" -- that inexplicably start and chaotically coalesce into something kind of interesting. The "Shit Girls Say" meme I believe has come and swirled on by... and just as I was relaxing into my weekend I received a pair of "What My Friends Think..." photos. Both were on a rather nichey topic (post production of various kinds), but I guess that's how these things are. If this meme is like others, there have probably been dozens of these for months or years, floating around but never catching fire. But getting two in two days? I feel a meme coming on.

Not wanting to miss this one, I've made my own. Obviously...


And to demonstrate that essential meme kernel -- the flexibility of the concept -- and the ease it takes to chuck a leaf into a fast moving stream, i made one more. (It's kinda like writing a haiku or Burma Shave ad.)

How do you make one of these? Where do I go?

@Ed Go? You're there, brother. Just open up a blank canvas in any drawing program... photoshop or even powerpoint, and build yourself a little template. you just add text and 6 pix from the web. Not too hard. Good luck!

Where do you get these ideas? My favorite ones were the one about scuba instructors and writers.

Hey Rubin, Ed and Jen! I love these too, but got tired of trying to find them spread out all over the web so I created one website where you can see ALL the "What My Friends Think I Do.." images in one place.

It's at www.WhatMyFriendsThinkIDo.com

If you have any new ones, we;ll post them! (We don;t make the image for you, but you can email it to us at New@WhatMyFriendsThinkIDo.com and we'll post it)
