Internet Meme Party Pictures
May 15, 2010

I attended a birthday party whose theme was "internet memes". I only stayed for about an hour, because I had to work early the next morning. But Datan0de and I went dressed as Pirates vs. Ninjas, and I brought Atheist's Nightmare Rick Rolls. I think I won the prize for the most number of memes portrayed by a single guest!

To explain, the Atheists' Nightmare Rick Rolls were peanut butter, banana, and some other stuff, rolled into a tortilla and cut into finger food snacks. For those who are not familiar, Ray "Banana Man" Comfort is an IDiot (that's an idiot who is a proponent of Intelligent Design, or creationism) who made a video with boy-toy Kirk Cameron in which he explained how the existence of the banana proves a creator god. Y'know, the Cavendish banana that was engineered by humans, cannot reproduce without human intervention because of its intentional lack of seeds, and became the most widely exported variety of banana in the 1950s due to the previous most-popular variety going nearly extinct from a fungal infection? Yeah, that one. He introduced the banana as "the Atheist's Nightmare". Naturally, that pile o' crap made the rounds on YouTube, where we love to mock the stupid. At around the same time that video was getting popular, another IDiot, named Chuck Missler, made a video in which he professed that because we can open a jar of peanut butter and not find organisms evolving in our sandwich spreads, that proves that evolution doesn't happen. Yes, he did. The title of that video was The Atheist's Nightmare. So, peanut butter & banana = Atheist's Nightmare.

Rick Roll is another internet meme, in which one person gets another person to view a video on YouTube of Rick Astley singing "Never Gonna Give You Up" by tricking him into thinking he is clicking a link to view some other video. I have no idea why this became so popular, but it became an internet phenonemon with millions of people viewing this video accidentally. Since the peanut butter & banana mixture was spread on a tortilla and rolled, they were called "Rick Rolls"

Pirates vs. Ninjas is a not-so-mock debate about the superiority of pirates versus ninjas. The earliest known internet appearance of this meme is a website called Real Ultimate Power, which is a satire website created in 2002. The author writes in the parody of a 13-year-old boy with a fascination (and no real understanding) of ninjas. The ninjas vs. pirate idea itself became such a popular meme that it is referenced in numerous video games and other media. Datan0de is about as obsessed with ninjas as that satirical 13-year-old boy, and I just happened to have a pirate costume lying around (and am closer to pirates than ninjas, although I don't have the whole pirate-fascination thing going), so naturally we turned our adversarial-romantic relationship into a cliché!
