Missourian Memes Offer J-Student Complaints ‘in a Humorous Yet Charming Way’
It is Mizzou meme mania. Columbia Missourian staffers at the University of Missouri recently provided an overflow of word-image combos aimed at capturing the backstage stresses and excitement of the student press experience.
As the greatest blog in all the land J-School Buzz confirmed, “[T]hey are shining light on particular events that reporters feel obligated to complain about in a humorous, yet charming way. Not only are they very endearing, but rumor has it that [Mizzou] J-Schoolers are very intrigued and even addicted to these amusing little memes.”
Below are three samples culled from the nearly 40 offerings currently viewable on the “Meme-sourian” post, part of a blog kept by Missourian reporter Alicia Stice. Collectively, they are quite possibly the funniest things I’ve read this year. (Note to Ms. Stice and colleagues: Please make more.) Happy Holidays!
