Hi everyone. Meet Phil.
Phil has seen that stick figure meme on Facebook and gotten a hearty chuckle out of it once or twice. He may even have clicked on the app to create one of his own, although he takes it into consideration when people warn him that these standalone apps made to cash in on memes are shady as hell and he probably shouldn’t entrust his user data to them.
But Phil understands that the joke is funny because it’s mocking an obnoxious attitude way too many real people have online. Phil finds it ironic that genuine advice about things that actually matter, like traffic safety, is now piggybacking on a meme that’s finger-wagging about something that’s really nobody else’s business, namely, what other people use the Internet to talk about.
