Meme Creativity Requested!

  • Creativity Request: I saw the top part of this meme below today, and although I feel like it is a little unfair to the Russians, even more, I feel like it cries out for extension to "Epicurean" and "Stoic" panels. What do you think would be good? It would be very easy to just say "I will die for a friend" or I will die for pleasure" and "I will die for virtue," but I bet we have people who are far more creative and funny, especially combined with the right image. So if you have a chance, please let us know your suggestion, preferably with an image!


    (PS I suspect we will all immediately think - this is perfect for Nate - but I bet - at least over time - others would have good ideas too!)


  • I have to say - the picture choices are just perfect. Except maybe for the American -- the weird expression on his face fits with the humor of the whole meme, but I don't even know who that is (?)

  • I think an epicurean would not die for something abstract like love, a country or honour. The greatest good is life.

    Now that causes me to think of changing not only the noun but the verb -- " I will live for pleasure." might be one way of contrasting it ironically -- too bad we don't have any big smiling faces of Epicurus!
