In case you missed it, Horsemaning was a thing last week! Yay for things! But now, there's a backlash. Backlashes are fun too. Sometimes more fun than the actual thing - even though there are more words and fewer pictures. Let's have a look.
Andrew Baron, Rocketboom:
With this meme, watch how it continues to spread even now. The Zombies will likely never understand they have been duped as they proudly confirm the antique quality and authenticity of the craze, further saturating the trails of truth, making meme research hard.
Adrian Chen, Gawker:
The idea of the 'internet craze' has outlived its usefulness. The half-life from internet meme to morning talk show segment is zero. It's time for journalists to retire this dumb pop cultural crutch. Every goddamn thing that happens on the internet is not an internet craze.
A Sad Puppy:
What do you think?! Post a photo of a kitten if you think that Horsemaning was a fun Internet craze and what is all the fuss about? Post a photo of a sad puppy if you think that Horsemaning is NOT FUN AND SERIOUS BUSINESS.
