    A BS in meme science isn't enough anymore. You need an MSMS.

  2. MerchManDan says:

    Took me a second to figure out that's a combination of "photo list" and "articles." Which – I just realized – I look at/read all the time.

  3. Amy K says:

    "Listicle": I learned a new word today! Thanks Meredith (and Wikipedia)!

  4. Mcolella says:

    A shandy, like a Tristram Shandy? Do you have to recite its life history before drinking it?

  5. Arkadi says:

    I want a bachelor in meme science XDXDXDXDDDD

  6. Bere fan says:

    "My parents may not get me now, but one day, they will accidentally click on a misleading link in their google ads, and then out of bored curiosity they will click through the photo slideshow that appears on a crappy flash navigator. And by the time they get to the advertisement that's always on the final slide instead of another photo, they will see my last name in a greyscale 4-point font on the lower-left-hand corner of the navigator. Their eyes will grow misty. At last, they will understand."

    lolcats is about to be inundated.

  11. Bruno Guedes says:

    Wait, you can get a bachelor in that? What the hell have I been doing with my life?! D:

  12. Oh my gosh says:

    Just realised we haven't seen the Photographer's face properly yet?

  13. Hello Meredith, just wanted to say that I'm a new fan that recently fell in love with this comic. A Friend of mine told me about it a month ago and what I've read has been a joy. Octopus pie is nothing short of marvelous. I missed you at CAKE this week but next time you come to the Great Lakes area I'm going to come and give you some money in exchange for some major swag.

    Listicle guy is blatantly the Peter Parker of this comic.

    • HateMachine says:

      Aspiring listicler Peter Parker and Asian Clark Kent, the crossover superhero alter-ego news team of the century.

  15. RobjustRob says:

    Panel 2, speaking of existential grief faces.

  16. HateMachine says:

    "His dream is to make photo listicles. But…"

    Okay, so I'm guessing that Buzzfeed and Huffpo never existed or were shut down by the reptile overlords in the OctoPie alt-universe?

    • MerchManDan says:

      I'm sure they exist, it's just that they have the photo listicle market cornered and it's tough for new blood to get a handhold.

  17. the whole truth about the modern web.
