Turns out there are a lot of memes needing to be mocked, and I guess it’s up to me to do it.
But what is Mock-A-Meme, why is it on this page, and what happened to #’s 1-17?
Here’s the deal. About a year ago, I ran a regular series on another blog in which I would collect memes and make fun of them. It was like a big party every Monday. Or, you know, like a mildly amusing text from a friend.
I moved a lot of fun stuff over to Mockameme.com; but then the novel took up most of my online energy.
Still, friends have continued to send me mockable memes. I went through my files today and found a significant backlog. It’s the holidays, I thought. A time for frivolity, joy, and mocking stuff. (I made up that last part.)
I started a new post, only to discover that I’d uploaded all the pictures onto this blog instead of my other one. Faced with the prospect of moving all those files again via my slow netbook, I made a decision: Mock-A-Meme would work just fine on my author blog.
So here you go. Some good old-school Mock-A-Memes until I use up my current supply. Enjoy!

You can tell she’s strong-minded because she’s wearing a dragon-scale ring, which is the universal symbol for “strong-minded woman.” Either that or “I have no need to bend my third finger.”
But walking away is hard to do, people. First you’ve got to get a dynamite figure, then you’ve got to buy a filmy white dress, and then you have to go to a beach and practice mincing. (And… is that an elf ear she’s got?)
Also, in meme-world, social conventions dictate that you have to bare one shoulder at the beach. It’s really embarrassing to show up fully dressed.
God will, of course, provide you with friends who are all your same age, height, and hair color.
She’s got enough terrible decisions going here to make an alphabetized set of books. But okay, I admit it. This one made me laugh.
