Let’s watch the city burn.

The meme that symbolizes my current feeling is “Some Men Just Want To Watch The World Burn”.

Check it out: Know Your Meme

I am currently suffering from post-vacation blues. That is to say, I still barely have any motivation to study even though, within half a day, I just managed to finish a six-page paper which used to take me two days. It feels strange that I am quite anxious while I am really not that much anxious at the same time.

I choose the specific photo of Tinky Winky because of his emotionless eyes and the mysterious smile on his face. It appears to be totally peaceful, whereas, with the ironic caption, a sense of fierce emotions is implied, which I feel completely connectable. To be specific, the contrast between the inner world and appearance of an individual is relatable. The only slight difference is that, in my case, it would be watching myself burn.

One surprising fact I found about this particular meme through Know Your Meme is that the original phrase comes from the July 2008 Batman film The Dark Knight. I had watched The Dark Knight Trilogy in recent few years a couple of times, nonetheless, I fail to remember the script. While this specific script is serious in the context of the film, there is an additional sense of humor in image macros.

  1. This meme is definitely funny AND relatable. I am right there with you suffering from post break blues. I had work to do when I got back to school, yet I was finding myself not even looking at it to pretend it doesn’t exist. The meme does a great job representing how emotionless we feel when we are super stressed and trying to play it cool at the same time.

  2. I’ve seen this meme before but never on this Tinky Winky picture, I laughed pretty hard when I saw this! I love the Dark Knight movie and the quote is really deep in context of the movie. Seeing it as a meme really shows how clever some people can be with finding memes.

  3. I couldn’t help but laugh at this meme as well. Returning to the day to day struggle has definitely been rough so I’m glad I was able to find some humor in your meme. The quote with Tinky Winky basically summed up the meme as a whole.
