I thought about making a corny ABC's of Permaculture and slapped it on a photo of mine. It's hard to use all of the letters in order, but I tried. Lemme know what you think if you think anything.

Alright, a few more have made it through the Sounding Board thread.



If you can, try to link this to Paul's Richsoil article.

I would probably link this to the Permies homepage or maybe the What is Permaculture? thread.

I'm kind of thinking that a link to the Lawn Care for the Cheap and Lazy article would be a good intro to someone who was attracted to this meme.

This one's a shoe-in for a link to the Rocket Stove Mass Heater article.

So Paul is always talking about how rocket mass heaters are such a luxurious source of heat, because of the butt warming aspect, so I had this idea while I was putting together some promotion.



I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I think it would be a great idea to get a meme photo of Paul, sitting like the Dos Equis guy (only holding a bottle of juice or something, since he doesn't drink), and sitting quite luxuriously on a rocket mass heater bench with the caption

"I don't always stay warm, but when I do, it's with a rocket mass heater."

or

"I don't always toast my buns, but when I do, it's on a rocket mass heater."

Something goofy and promotional for the Better Wood Heat set, I think it'd be a lot of clicks! What do we say, any Ants or Wheaton Labs residents up to the challenge? Is Paul willing to participate?

"If meat is murder, tilling is killing!"


That being said, I eat meat, but do not till. I can't wait til self-righteous proclamations that "I only eat no till" replace "I'm veeegannn"

Dave Burton wrote:Wonderful meme D. Logan! For future reference, please may you post initial memes in Meme Factory Soundboard first, and please critique memes posted in the Soundboard. Thank you so much! The reason there are three threads,  Meme Factory Photo Submissions, Meme Factory Soundboard, and Meme Factory, is because each one serves a specific function. The one for photo submissions is for any photos anyone would like to let people making memes use. The Soundboard is where initial memes are posted for critiquing and improvement. Approval to the Meme Factory is very simple: just get a thumbs up on the meme or one nice comment from anyone on permies.com about the meme and it is ready to go the the Meme Factory. The Meme Factory is where all the finalized memes go, and they are ready for absolutely anyone from the permies.com community to post anywhere on the Internet at anytime. I appreciate you taking the time to read this, and I look forward to seeing more of your memes!



Oops, my mistake.  I'll try and move my posts.  sorry
