We're not allowed to comment in the various meme threads, but every so often one is shown that I don't understand (I don't get out much). So I'm posting one here and would like someone to explain it to me.


I didn't get this one, either


Thanks. flashguy

The meme with Stalin refers to a song from the 1980s "Video Killed the Radio Star".

I understood the joke, though I don't know who the dead guys were.

I had to google "Polk High 33." That was Al Bundy's HS football number. . .

Those would be Nikolai Antipov (left), Joseph Stalin, Sergei Kirov (right), and Nikolai Shvernik (far right), in a photo taken at the Fifteenth Leningrad Regional Party Conference in 1924. Shvernik actually survived Stalin, but the sequentially airbrushed photos hanging in the Kremlin looked like this, left to right as the flanking comrades physically disappeared as well:

Thanks, everyone. I couldn't tell what that was he pulled out of the jerky bag (print was too small) and none of the jerky I ever bought had a dessicant in it. I also have never watched MTV so never heard of the song.

Night time driving is the worst time for this, to the point that if possible I seek out the dessicant bag and throw it out before I eat much.

Other than those, I have done pretty well with that thread, considering I am an apprentice proto-geezer.

I took a snippet out of it to make the .gif. To make themselves look all "herky-jerky" it was filmed in slow motion then sped up.

It just popped into my head while watching old NCIS reruns (I haven't read any of the responses yet)--it's an old "Lang" sign (Old Lang Syne). Very clever.

Hela was the main villain from Thor: Ragnorok. She tried to conquer Asgard (Thor's home), and was succeeding until Thor ordered Loki to release Sutur (some giant planet-killing monster) who ultimately destroyed Asgard and killed Hela in the process (Hela tried to kill Sutur but failed).

It's a satirical play on events, just like the "Good Guy Palpatine - eliminated unemployment on Aalderan)" memes. . .
