Rachel's Blog: How-to-fold-a-t-shirt-you-dimwit videos
I think the internet is to blame for the proliferation of t-shirt folding videos on the internet. No, really. Hear me out on this one.
- The internet exists.
- The internet supports the spread of memes. (Or, the internet creates memes, or the internet itself is a meme to be spread, but, whatever.)
- To take financial advantage of memes, people design t-shirts.
- Which are sold on the internet. (cafepress, threadless, spreadshirt...)
- People buy memes, in form of t-shirts.
- People run out of closet space. (Only one t-shirt can be worn at a time or the meme cannot be seen to be worn.)
- People are too ashamed to admit that they never helped their parents with the laundry.
- People make how-to-fold-a-t-shirt-you-dimwit videos.
- Videos spread. Like memes.
It is a vicious cycle, and one day you will drown in a never-ending stream of .mov and .wmv files demonstrating simple household chores. (Because watching someone else doing the housework is as good as doing it yourself, right? Works for me...)
