I'm only annoyed because they used the Dark Side of the Moon album cover for a meme about a song from The Wall.

But the prism image is far more iconically associated with Pink Floyd than any image from The Wall.

Also, by agreeing with the 'How can you have any pudding?' guy they're identifying as part of the educational establishment that enforces thought control.

Hey! Memer! Leave those vegetarians alone!

And in the town it was well know that when they went home at night their fat, psychopatic wives would thrash them withing inches of their lives.

No, it means they are identifying with the very memorable and catchy lyrics to a song.

Even if they were in the world of the song, it would probably mean that they had the idea literally beat into them. That's not the same as identifying with their abusers.

Mondegreen confession time: For a long time I thought that lyric was "If you don't eat your beets, you can't have any pudding." Which would be totally vegetarian. I think I heard it that way because I generally liked meat, so I didn't view it as something kids wouldn't want to eat. Beets, on the other hand... Of course the meat in the song could be something like school cafeteria grade D but edible mystery meat, which would be a different story.

Well, I guess tonight we've found out where all you pink fans really stand...

(I went with the paperbag icon because it was the closest I could get to a pink mask, although I suppose the banging a head against the wall icon might have fit as well)

"Trump's inauguration didn't create the hate in the left. It exposed it."
Oh, so now we're the hateful ones. Good to know.

Remember, it's always about projection, smittykins. It must be comforting for them to believe that everyone is just as horrible as they are, but it sucks for everyone else.

Hey, it'd get rid of a lot of those pesky CEOs!! Oh wait, that's not who they're aiming at, is it?

Yeah, it would certainly drive down the wages of CEOs, accountants, doctors, lawyers, hedge fund managers...

Not that none of them could read a multimeter, but a whole lot of them wouldn't know how.

So trades that aren't electricians don't deserve $15 an hour, then?

Clearly you are an uneducated lout who should be paid pennies a day. I mean, it only took years and years of college and post-secondary education to be a veterinarian. Clearly that is worth less than a skill that can be learned via some online videos.

A map of the United States, a picture of the U.S. flag, and a picture of Donald Trump with the caption, "If you live here, this is your flag and this is your president." Yes, I'm American, the Stars and Stripes are my flag, and The Donald is my president. There's no need to get in my face with it.

It is indeed my flag. That's why I'm waving it at rallies protesting against Trump's policies.

Yes, that's my flag and he's my president. That is why I have a responsibility as a citizen to protect the country the flag symbolizes from his actions/policies when I believe they are harmful or immoral.

Now, now, I'm sure those same folks passed that meme around the past 8 years with Obama's face proudly attached to it.
