Wanted: Your Loss Memes

Postby The Snide Sniper » Fri Jul 20, 2018 2:22 am UTC

I need a lot of loss memes. Like, a lot. I've already went through the GIS pages for "loss meme", "is this loss", and "is this loss meme", and I still need more. Don't ask why.

Any and all loss memes are accepted, so long as they are safe for work, they follow the "loss" format and I don't already have them. Quality is not in any way required.

You can post them in this thread or PM me.

Origin of it aside, I think what makes it appealing is how easy it is to encode the reference in other forms. Since all you need is the four-panel format of one thing, two things, two things, and two things with one of them sideways, it's easy to hide in otherwise innocuous images that only those familiar with the meme format will understand.

You turn on the radio one morning to find another one of those Rap songs where every 4th word is a swear. Naturally the Radio bleeps it out, but you realize that it sounds familiar. You realize that the rappers are speaking in Morse code.

Your eyes widen as you swerve over onto the shoulder of the expressway, nearly hitting a Jeep Cherokee in the process. It didn’t matter to you. Frantically searching the glove compartment, the backseat, and your purse, you finally find a small notepad and a pen with a low ink cartridge. You listen closely to the radio, and begin to scribble down as much as you can. You realize it was merely a pattern.

— -. . / - .– — / - .– — / ..-. .. ..-. - -.–

Unfortunately for you, you aren’t very well versed in translating Morse code, merely recognizing it. You reach into your purse to grab your phone, but after a moment of searching, you realize you had left it at home before you left for work. “God damnit,” you mutter. You’re more than halfway to your office, and you’re already running late due to the fact that that you decided to follow some whim and jot down some cryptic message from a provocative rapper. Concluding that it would probably be best for you to mosey to work, you pull back onto the expressway and try to make it to work on time.

Upon arriving at work, you ask any coworker in sight if they know Morse code. Nobody seems to, and some don’t even know what Morse code is. You slump your shoulders in disappointment and head over to your desk, when suddenly, the quiet, mouse-like secretary clears her throat and says, “Excuse me, I know Morse code!”

You turn around with the same wide eyes as before. “You do!?” you ask vigorous excitement, which seems to startle the young woman.

“Yes,” she says, “when I was younger, I planned on joining the navy, so I taught it to myself.” You feel a bit sorry for her, that she wound up as a mere secretary instead of a naval officer, but that feeling of pity didn’t stop you from being grateful for the lucky coincidence of her knowing Morse code. You show her the pattern.

— -. . / - .– — / - .– — / ..-. .. ..-. - -.–

“That’s all there is?” she asks, furrowing her brow.

“Yeah,” you shrugged, “it just kept repeating that over and over again. What does it say?”

“One, two, two, fifty.”

Your heart sinks a little. “What is that? What does that mean, is it like a phone number or house address or something?”

The secretary shrugs. “I’m really sorry, I don’t know. It’s too short to be a phone number, but beyond deciphering it, I’m afraid I can’t help you.”

You nod slowly, and though you understand, you are still not at all satisfied. You go to sit at your desk. 1 2 2 50. The sequence plays over and over in your head all day, and needless to say, your curiosity an wonderment got the best of you. It was not a very productive work day.

You head home, and the same damned song plays on the radio. You shake your head as if that would make the song stop, then decide to plug 12250 into your GPS to see if there are any autofill results. None. You become increasingly frustrated.

When you get home, your daughter is sitting at the kitchen table, working on homework. She runs up to you and gives you a big hug, and asks about your day at work. You put on a fake smile and sigh. “Interesting,” you say— no doubt sugarcoating the intense excitement, disappointment, and confusion.

“Will you help me with my homework? I have to memorize something for my history class tomorrow.”

“Of course, doll! What are you memorizing?”

She hands you a laminated sheet of paper. “Roman numerals!”

You glance over the page, your eyes quickly darting from one, to two, to fifty.

It dawns on you. You’d recognize this pattern anywhere.

is this just a reference for the sake of reference or something? I am at a total loss but this smells like 4chan and tempts me to hate it as intentionally obscurantist bullshit

The NPR/Gimlet podcast "Reply All" covered the background of the Loss meme in the first half of Episode #80. (also streamable on iTunes, Google Play, etc.) It's ~15 minutes.

FWIW, the Reply All podcast generally explains esoteric internet stuff in interesting ways and is very well produced. I've been a geek messing with computers ~30 years, and I think I'm generally pretty savvy about tech, the internet, and online culture, but Reply All takes some incredibly deep dives into corners of the internet that I didn't know existed or had only scratched the surface of.

No, more like the formatting of where I ripped it from removed things to be "helpful"


- - - -. . / - .-– - - - / - .-– - - - / ..-. .. ..-. - -.--

Though.. y'know... if you read the fucking thing it told you what it was supposed to be, and then you coulda figured that out on your own due to the fucked up shape of the dashes.
