Some Memes Never Die
I was browsing the Getty Images that are embeddable now, and this one stood out. It tells an interesting story, don’t you think?
Here are the questions it raised for me:
1. Did the photographer catch this au naturel? or was it posed?
2. If it was au naturel, why does the girl have those roses in her pocket? do they have thorns?
3. If it was posed, where did the brilliant inspiration to stick those roses in the pocket come from?
I remembered, too, the “Love is…” meme that the movie “Love Story” started (when Ryan O’Neal and Ali McGraw decided that Love is Never Having to Say You’re Sorry).
I never thought that was a true statement, mind you. But Ryan O’Neal was so cute back then, in 1970. Is it awful to confess I never watched the movie? Couldn’t possibly miss the meme, though.
