If you all want to make a meme go ahead , if not I will get to them later .
I had seen a portrait of Isaac Newton on a meme sight . I thought a parallel between Newtons apples and permies apples might be fun .
Isaac Newtons' Apples = One
Paul Wheatons' Apples = Infinity symbol
One apple changed the world .
We have bushels !

I don't think any use of the Wonka meme that doesn't have a tone of sarcasm will be met with anything but an eye roll. The Wonka meme works because it uses a slight humor and touch of tone to point out where an error in logic may be happening. It is done in a way that most people find funny, even if it is the topic they stand on the opposite side of the fence for. In truth, just about any meme without humor on some level tends not to gain much traction. To me, Wonka memes are some of the best because they always address something that deserves a bit of thought, but do so in a way that isn't a direct attack on an individual. They tear down a bit of the wall around some viewpoint that some people would otherwise refuse to consider. Instead of saying 'this way is better' to someone with their fingers in their ears, the meme instead goes 'Hey, have you noticed this problem with your own idea?' in a funny way that disarms anger and affords no target.
