Re: Cask of Amontillado, I may be misremembering but I think the guy also literally chains his friend up before starting to build the wall. And the friend (who is v. drunk) is going 'haha come on dude this is funny and all but let me out now. Lol come on man where's that wine at what are you doing with those bricks'
Let’s be clear here: this meme was basically made for me.
And yes, he chains up his friend, who is dressed like a clown and also very drunk, and his friend slowly sobers up as the dude is bricking up a wall.
Also, for the lazy in us, and for those who want to see the posts that started it all, I highly recommend Vox’s explainer for this meme: http://www.vox.com/2016/10/14/13274974/tumblr-cask-of-amontillado-meme
