The REAL Story Behind Hilarious Internet Memes (1/3)

Discover the stories behind some of the most famous Internet memes!

But the stories behind these hilarious Internet graphics sometimes get lost. We’re never quite sure where the photos originated from, but we did some digging, and were able to find the real stories behind 10 of our most favorite and hilarious Internet memes. A meme can be born in various ways. All it takes is a somewhat funny picture alongside a hilarious caption. And before you know it, a meme has gone viral. There are some pretty awesome memes to have hit the web in the past decade, but their popularity doesn’t last very long. Other memes have had some staying power, and have been used over and over again. Each time, they receive the same reaction: a never-ending laugh. The best memes are the ones that are unplanned and natural. Everyone from everyday people to celebrities have unintentionally turned themselves into popular memes. When Michael Jordan was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, he had no idea his sentimental moment would become one of the most hilarious Internet memes to hit the web. Overcome with emotion, Jordan’s tear-stained face was captured by a member of the Associated Press. His face has since been used as the ultimate sign of defeat in the sports world and beyond. Jordan himself isn’t too happy about his image going viral, but he has agreed to let the world continue to use his crying face, as long as no one tries to profit off of it. In the end, Jordan has a sense of humor, but he’s a true business man at heart. Sometimes, memes can go a little too far. Imagine waking up one morning and realizing you have become the laughing stock of the Internet? That has to hurt, and could be pretty damaging to someone’s self-esteem. Blake Boston learned this firsthand when his photo was dubbed, “Scumbag Steve” went viral. Blake’s mother took the photo of him while he stood in the doorway, wearing his hat cocked to the side and a faux-fur jacket. Internet users swiped the picture from Myspace, and started adding the most inappropriate, jerk-like captions to the image. Initially, Blake wasn’t too happy about his unintentional Internet fame, but today, he has embarrassed Scumbag Steve. He even uses the name to promote his Hip Hop music. Memes have really changed the Internet entirely, and most of the most popular ones come from websites such as 4Chan, Reddit and Tumblr. These Internet users are quite witty, and they seem to know exactly what images will take off and become super popular. Like the images of a tiny Drake taken from his “Views” cover art. The rappers image was then photoshopped onto the face of Crying Jordan Meme, as well as onto the top of the iconic diner from the hit show Seinfeld. Despite being the brunt of the Internet’s jokes, Drake probably doesn’t mind. He’s killing it on the charts despite constantly being the source of the most hilarious memes we have ever seen. Many of the memes on our list have been floating around the web for years, and we can’t wait to see what creative Internet users come up with next to make us crack up laughing! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: Twitter: Instagram: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit:

Betty Boop The Old Man Of The Mountain 1933 HD BANNED CARTOON EXPLICIT

The Old Man of the Mountain is a 1933 animated short in the Betty Boop series, produced by Fleischer Studios. Featuring special guests Cab Calloway and His Orchestra, the short was originally released to theaters on August 4, 1933 by Paramount Productions. Calloway voices all of the characters in the cartoon save for Betty herself (talking voice provided by Bonnie Poe and singing voice provided by Mae Questel). Calloway, along with his orchestra, also perform all of the music in the cartoon, including two songs Calloway co-wrote. Controversy According to film historian Christopher Lehman, the sexually suggestive nature of this film caused "some Americans at the time, especially Catholics," to complain to exhibitors who then pressured Paramount Studios (distributor of the Betty Boop series) to tone down the Betty Boop character, which subsequently pressured Fleischer Studios to do the same thing. This can be seen when an old man sees Betty and acts crazy, a fish starts to follow her before getting hit by his wife, and Betty's dress even is removed in one scene. According to Lehman, "In dispensing with the African-American entertainers and their music after limiting the 'Betty Boop' series' sexual references, [Max] Fleischer thus acknowledged the widely assumed connection between raciness and blackness." After 1934, African-American jazz music would no longer appear in Betty Boop cartoons, and she metamorphosized into a more conservative, mature, domestic character who often played only a supporting role. The Old Man of the Mountain Betty Boop series Directed by Dave Fleischer Produced by Max Fleischer Voices by Mae Questel (Betty Boop-singing voice) Cab Calloway (Old Man & All Other) Bonnie Poe (Betty Boop-talking voice) Music by Cab Calloway and his orchestra Animation by Bernard Wolf Thomas Johnson Studio Fleischer Studios Distributed by Paramount Productions Release date(s) August 4, 1933 Color process Black-and-white Notes The Old Man of the Mountain was the third and last of the Fleischer cartoons pairing Betty Boop and Cab Calloway; the others are Minnie the Moocher and Snow-White. As in the other two cartoons, film footage of Cab Calloway was rotoscoped, or traced into animation, to provide the dance steps for the Old Man during the duet of "You Gotta Ho-De-Ho (To Get Along with Me)". As with many other Boop shorts, The Old Man of the Mountain is now in the public domain. The dialogue between Betty and the Old Man ("Whatcha gonna do now?" "Gonna do the best I can!") is mirrored almost exactly in a scene between Santa Claus and Oogie Boogie in the 1993 film The Nightmare Before Christmas. The scene also features music very similar to Calloway's "Minnie the Moocher" and dance steps close to Calloway's own. _____________ GOON CARTOONS is a creator and curator of funny, cartoon and basically sick-ass videos!

Metropolis - Dance Scene

This is the famous dance scene, where the artificial Maria bewitches the mighty men of Metropolis. This video contains the new found footage from Argentin. The cut with all the eyes was considered a breakthrough in special effects technique.

Is this 1921 cartoon the first ever meme?
Is this 1921 cartoon the first recorded meme?
When this comic was posted to Twitter, it caused excitement as people began to wonder if it was the first meme - a format-dependent joke, typically of a picture with a caption or subtitle - ever published.
But we've found a version of the joke using the same format printed at least a year earlier in either 1919 or 1920.
Both draw from the same template of the 'Expectations vs. Reality' joke, which contrasts two pictures side-by-side with an obvious discrepancy between them.

It was subsequently reposted with new captions such as "you/the guy she tells you not to worry about", referencing yet another contemporary template meme.
Some users created their own takes on the format using other memes such as 'If You Don't Love Me / Can't Handle Me'.
Where does it come from?
The comic was found in a 1921 edition of satirical magazine The Judge, published by the University of Iowa.
Within The Judge, the comic is then credited to a different magazine - the Wisconsin Octopus, published at the University of Wisconsin between 1919 and 1959.
By looking through the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries, we were able to view a few early editions of the Wisconsin Octopus magazine, and found this is not the first time the 'Expectations vs. Reality'-format joke appeared in print.
In an edition published in either 1919 or 1920, the following comic (which is very dated by today's standards) can be found:
What is a meme?
The word meme was coined by Richard Dawkins in his 1976 book The Selfish Gene
Dawkins called memes "ideas that spread from brain to brain"
The Oxford English Dictionary defines memes as images, videos or text that are copied and spread by internet users, often with variations
Is it 'the first meme'?
According to the definition, a single image cannot be a meme. It has to be copied and spread with variations to the original image.
So on its own, the 1921 comic is not a meme. But coupled with the comic from either 1919 or 1920, it begins to fit the definition, as the two comics are variations on the same style - using two panels and captions to set-up an expectation and contrast it with reality.
While we can't say with certainty that this is the first meme by that definition, we can say that because it was copied and spread with variations this cartoon was genuinely part of a pre-internet 'Expectations vs. Reality' meme.
Clearly the writers of the Wisconsin Octopus magazine were ahead of their time.
