"Sometimes, on the internet, text and images get mixed up."

Email from Meade, with this attachment:



That came up on some news site that aggregates automatically. It's not a conscious human mind joking. (Meade touched up the photo to eliminate the images that appeared in the top left and bottom right corners.)

ADDED: This was the news site, ZergNet.

There goes Althouse again, running down Donald Trump since day one of his announcement.

Michael K said...

The Democrats are starting to worry about Trump. Until now, they assumed he would say something really stupid and fall. I don;t like him but he is starting to scare Democrats.

Paul said...

The picture on the lower left looks a lot more like the current president than Trump.

Fernandinande said...

Boy, who knew that Trump is related to humans and that at least one of his kids is an Aussy aborigine? Be honest when answering. Or not.

eric said...

One of the things I really like about Trump is his children. They say a lot about the man.

traditionalguy said...

Jealousy of Trump's superior communication skill is not something that I would brag about.

n.n said...

Trump is clearly not "boyfriend" material. Or maybe he is.

untermensch?

mikee said...

Drudgereport.com consciously puts images of Hillary looking shrewish, or idiotic, or disgustingly aged, next to appropriate headlines regarding her shrewish, idiotic and disgustingly aged behavior. But he does so to others, as well.

Hillary will still win because she has the support of the media, the elite money, Wall Street money, foreign money, and leftist prog useful idiots, which makes a majority of the votes these days.

God help us all.

Michael K said...

The Trump kids seem to like him but, as Baron Hilton once said, "Money isn't everything but it helps to keep the children close."

Ann Althouse said...

Doesn't anyone in here ever just laugh?

Barry Dauphin said...

The Donald is on recording saying that making fun of his appearance is "not nice".

traditionalguy said...

I like the one where Trump is asked to do his imitation of Bush, but declines because he doesn'tt want to fall asleep
On the air.

walter said...

When will Weird Al release a Van Halen remake in honor of the Donald? Might as well..

At you, not with you. Or at things that are funny. Like you.

To make this not about yourself: Maybe you could try poking at someone we dislike. That might be funnier. You might also learn something.

...Nah...

No, we have become a mirthless society:)

Ann Althouse:

There are several other threads where laughs are a dime a dozen. However, this thread, while the juxtaposition is amusing, it is not really funny ha-ha. It lacks the sophistication of gaiety and mirth that emanates from cognitive dissonance.

"We need to talk" thought the cave-wife.

walter said...

While I wait for Weird Al's Trump!, worked a little on a prior bit.

Q: A lot of people feel your opponent has no real achievements or strongly held convictions (maybe pending conviction?) but she still betters you in the polls. Do you think it's because she's a woman?

Bernie: Well..I really hoped this evening would be about the substantive issues, like how this flaming roll of Berno..ouch!..eh..could give us similar domestic energy potential and welfare state support as those Northern European socialist paradises I'm so fond of.
But let's be cleah...and let me address this directly to my more than worthy opponent.
(Turning to Hilary)
Hilary: Thank you.
Bernie: Mrs. Clinton. The American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn vagina!
(crowd boos)
What? Huh? No..that's MY podium! Miiinne!!

AllenS said...

When I saw the two pictures, one of Trump and the other of some kind of species on the same page, I laughed so hard that I almost peed my pants.

You'll probably have to show and tell why the picture is so funny, Althouse. Obviously, these people don't get it.

Meade said...

"Doesn't anyone in here ever just laugh?"

Apparently not. You should tell them all YOU'RE FIRED.

MAKE ALTHOUSE GREAT AGAIN!

Paddy O said...

"You should tell them all YOU'RE FIRED."

Then they'd just go off and start another blog.

walter said...

Admit it Meade. Warm as it is you're wearing shorts today.

Meade said...

Actually, scientists have recently discovered, walter, that like my more primitive bipedal cousin primates, I wear nothing at all.

No "missing link" here at Meadhouse if you get my drift. My continental drift.

Tank said...

If it were Ben Carson instead of Trump, that would have been funny.

But we wouldn't be allowed to laugh (or admit that we laughed).

Here is something funny:

Zero thinks the Republicans did not handle the CNBC moderators well. That's funny. OK, maybe just pathetic. He did draw attention to how well he's "handled" Putin....OK, admit it, that's funny.

Tank said...

In this context, Chip Ahoy would know what was funny. And, he could "show" his work.

Crack would think it was funny with Trump, but not with Carson. Or maybe he would think it was funny with Carson.

Michael K said...

"Doesn't anyone in here ever just laugh?"

That's why I come here, mostly.

Drago said...

Ann Althouse: "Doesn't anyone in here ever just laugh?"

Oh, is this one of those things we are still allowed to laugh at?

One cannot be too careful these days.

The Social Justice-fever/Lefty-"ever-changing-rules" fireswamp certainly keeps one on ones toes.

I just hope that whoever created this juxtaposition indirectly via code is not wearing an "unfortunate" shirt.

walter said...

Ah...like this?

Meade said...

Hairier.

Quaestor said...

ZergNet, yet another example of why Idiocracy was not just entertainment, but prophetic.

BTW, the illustration used by the ZergNet Borgs isn't even H. naledi.

"Doesn't anyone in here ever just laugh?"
and the forests will echo with laugh-ter.
Does anyone remember laughter?

"Doesn't anyone in here ever just laugh?"

Sure. But not at the same things. There is precious little to laugh about in the current political landscape.

You are on the receiving end of government, I am on the giving end of government. Things are obviously going to be perceived differently.

ngtrains said...

I guess I'm stupid. Humor -where?? The caption is below the photograph. So What? If the photos had been swapped, then maybe, but as it is, I feel nothing about it. I would not think Trump would be a good president. He'd probably be better than the expected Dem, but hell, who wouldn't be?
