Memes

Washington D.C. surprised everyone by declaring an unprecedented total shutdown of Metro services for at least 24 hours. This is for everyone's safety, it's an emergency evaluation of some dangerous electrical problems. That still leaves everyone with plenty of extra time to use gifs and memes to comment on the traffic as they make their way to work by car, bus or foot instead. Even some Twitter accounts for city services are getting in on the "fun".

There is a war going on between LaCroix fans and it's tearing friends, families, and even offices (Cheezburger) apart.

The obvious leader in this sparking water civil war is the Pamplemousse Facebook page. Mostly because Team Coconut seems to be stealing its rival's memes and Photoshopping coconut all over them.

*Team Coconut's legion of Facebook followers is hurting, even though most would argue that Coconut LaCroix has the superior flavor.

Are you Team Coconut or Team Pamplemousse?

A London man ended up in big trouble after posting several awful Tweets about Muslims following the Brussels Attacks. His initial Tweet, where he describes "confronting" a Muslim woman was met with an appropriate amount of derision from other users who turned his phrase into a meme.

He clarified the incident with "The Telegraph" with an alternate version of events:

What everyone’s got wrong about this is I didn’t confront the woman,” he said. “I just said: ‘Excuse me, can I ask what you thought about the incident in Brussels?'”

“She was white, and British, wearing a hijab – and she told me it was nothing to do with her.

“I said ‘thank you for explaining that’ – and her little boy said goodbye to me as we went out separate ways.”

Despite this alternate version of events, his Twitter stream has devolved into alternately spouting hateful things aimed at Muslims and retweeting stories about his "confrontation" Tweet.

But the story doesn't end there, he was arrested later for his hateful posts. The Telegraph gives details from a police spokesperson on the situation:

"A 46-year-old man was this evening arrested at his home in Croydon on suspicion of inciting racial hatred on social media. He has been taken to a south London police station and enquiries continue."
