Never in a million years did I think I would be making memes in class. But alas, that day is here. For this document, I made three memes, one for each category: big idea, Hamilton, and current events. Some of the memes cross over into other categories, but I’ll explain that later.
My first meme is mainly about the big idea : disparities in power alter the balance of relationships between individuals and between societies. Here it is:
I made this meme because I found it ironic Jefferson wanted freedom and yet still owned hundreds of slaves. For this meme, I used the saying: behind every great man is a great woman, and while Jefferson had a wife, he also had a lot of help from his slaves. This also somewhat corresponds with Hamilton as Jefferson was a important character in the play.
Now moving on to my second meme, which is mainly on Hamilton, but also connects with current events:
Now, if you’re not updated on the basketball world, you won’t understand this meme. BUT, ITS OK because I will explain it. The first part is obvious, Burr shot and killed Hamilton, but the 95-96 Bulls may be confusing. The 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls basketball team currently holds the best regular season record of all time (72-10) and is considered by many to be the greatest of all time. My meme is based off many other memes using this team. The reason why it has come up so much is because the Golden State Warriors are at a point (as of now), where they can beat the record. They are currently at 71-10 with 1 game left to play. Earlier in the season, there were many comparing the two teams using the common phrase “but can the 15-16 Warriors beat the 95-96 Bulls”. It has even gone to the point when anyone does an impressive feat someone would say the phase “but can ________ (beat, defeat, outscore, etc) the 95-96 Bulls”. My meme is basically using the same format.
My last meme is on current events, and it’s no surprise that it’s about none other than TRUMP!
This one is pretty self-explanatory: Trump’s presidency is basically a joke, and who better than the most interesting man in the world to point out that fact?
Well those are my three memes, I hope you enjoyed them and maybe even laughed (even though they’re pretty lame).
