Ladyguide: Polyvore Memes

Here at Persephone, we believe meme generators are for chumps. No, we believe in creating snappy visual comebacks the old fashioned way, with Polyvore. 

Think about it, readers, Polyvore has nearly unlimited potential for creating truly one-of-a-kind memes that might become ubiquitously viral, this creating a hole in the fabric of space and time, or at least taking up a few more kilobytes of space on a server somewhere.

To wit:

Rather than type a quick, glib, “RTFA,” why not go all out and create a square of shame which expresses your feelings in even more space?

Or, say you’ve encountered someone on Facebook who insists Newt is right about putting poor, eight year-old, public school students to work as janitors? You could type out a few hundred words explaining the history behind and reasons for child labor laws, or you could slap up a meme.

We’ve all encountered that poor sap who leaves a 1000 word reply to any political article they might find, without actually making any salient arguments. For them, try the following.

While most battling we do on the internet involved unknown enemies who must be convinced how wrong they are, every so often we might encounter an elusive Internet unicorn. When you find one of these mysterious, thoughtful, intellectually curious people, reward them with something like the following.

Finally, when you’ve become inevitably bored with all the other “U mad?” memes, try attracting a few flies with a little honey (or unicorns!) instead.

What can you do with a few minutes of free time and unfettered access to pictures of shoes, glitter and pithy phrases?  Keep them less than 400px wide and smaller than 200k, and you can share them in our comments.
