Poor bab. @ghost-and-pals
You've put some serious effort into archiving this material -- I commend your dedication! No joke, there really is something intriguing here about why people /make/ this stuff; "minion meme culture" isn't remotely an exaggeration, especially given that the "facebook mom" communicative style has itself become memeworthy. One potential line of further inquiry: are minion memes just a direct descendant of "vintage housewife memes," and what's the history behind /those/?
