I made a meme?

In January, on a cold blustery morning, I made up a little joke and tweeted it out.
And the Weather Network retweeted it.

A few days ago, a friend said this came up in a social media feed from an American cousin. No connection of mine whatsoever.

How do you win on Canadian Twitter? You talk about the weather.
Some more people decided to share it.

And kudos to whoever made this graphic for giving me credit. I didn't know the Internet was that honest :)
No wait, it isn't.

Your numbering is redundant! And capitalizing every word? A terrible choice!

Totally ruining the punchline.Oh well.

Wrong. Argh.
At least Al Roker liked the original gag.

And really, I'm not the first one to come up with the idea. More than one person has applied the Kubler-Ross model of dealing with grief to winter...

But maybe I'm the first one who memed it?



  1. Cool! Now I can say I was following you before you became famous ;-)

  2. Oh, I wouldn't worry about wearing out those words.
    I'm still enjoying your projects blog, by the way! Though I have to use Google Translate now you've switched to just posting in Belgian - makes for some interesting reads ;)
