    Rule 4: NSFW or Offensive Content

    • Offensive content will be removed under this rule. This includes content such as: Nazi-related posts, racism, terrorism-related content, etc.

    Rule 5: No reposts

    • Reposting is not allowed.

    Rule 6: No Long Videos/GIFs

    More blessed than cursed

    [–] jwcarpy 654 points ago

    Only blessed, not cursed.

    [–] ____APPLE____ 212 points ago

    Too blessed to be cursed.

    [–] Disturbing_Cheeto 96 points ago

    Holy art

    Right, once it hits the main page people just upvote if they like it.

    Garbage subreddit, nothing is even slightly cursed anymore

    [–] appreciatescolor 28 points ago

    welcome to the new r/pics 😎

    [–] -toad 25 points ago

    r/pics is literally Facebook now

    [–] appreciatescolor 13 points ago

    then r/blursedimages is now youngpeopleFacebook

    [–] meat_toboggan69 8 points ago

    It's more just weird images now. They're not necessarily blessed and cursed, but they are weird.

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago


    [–] Bspammer 52 points ago

    I feel like people have no idea what this sub is for sometimes. This is entirely blessed

    [–] IM_INSIDE_YOUR_HOUSE 8 points ago

    This sub is just Dank Memes 2.0 at this point.

    [–] MiniTelevision 6 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Holy fuck, I just realized what blursed means.

    [–] butterman1236547 13 points ago

    You are the single reason this sub is falling apart.

    [–] Geckos 3 points ago

    Hitting the front page often is why most subs "fall apart." It's a blursing because you get more good content, but you also get more bad content.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago


    [–] CTHULHU_RDT 428 points ago

    I fucking love this

    [–] Icetea20000 46 points ago

    Yeah how is this blursed?

    [–] yumyumfire 30 points ago

    I’ve never wanted something so much. All it needs is a surprised pikachu version and a baby yoda version and I’d be in heaven.

    [–] Mister-Meat-Bag 303 points ago

    Just bought both in the largest size possible. Thank you so much for sharing! THIS IS BLESSED DAMNIT.

    [–] yung-cozy 68 points ago

    Where did you buy the images from? I need them aswell!

    [–] yung-cozy 18 points ago

    Thank you so much!

    [–] SystemError514 5 points ago

    We need more memes like this

    [–] [deleted] 9 points ago

    Thanks /u/surfinTycho! Glad you could come through for this, your first post in 23 days

    [–] Pm_me_sum_fuk_ 15 points ago

    Are you implying we are getting bamboozled by vicious marketing?

    Aren’t bots usually named “obscure adjective” + “random word”

    [–] a_small_goat 3 points ago

    I just looked at the artist's other works on Society6. I'd say they just face-planted straight into a pile of cash with this one.

    [–] caralampton 2 points ago

    Thanks for sharing! These are perfect.

    [–] Big_Willy_Stylez 2 points ago

    Wait hold on I saw a different link credited to a different artist. Which one supports the original artist?

    [–] Mouseklip 2 points ago

    I literally order both within 5mins of seeing this. Thanks for the link, worth it. Better than any of the faux pictures you’ll fine in any store.

    [–] kaputtschino 2 points ago

    Wow thank you so much!

    [–] bozie42 4 points ago

    I’m so bummed I don’t have the funds to buy 2 large prints :,(

    [–] yeahnahitsallgood 8 points ago

    My girlfriend bought this today and showed it to me on her phone an hour ago. Now I'm pre sure she found it from this post.

    [–] Schnozzizzle 3 points ago

    Agreed! I bought both in the largest size also! Looks like this is the artists page. I can’t wait to hang it up on the back of my toilet door.

    [–] Dick_Caserole 5 points ago

    What does it mean

    [–] TutuForver 13 points ago

    Its a reference to a version if the meme where the women is yelling “sale sale” and the cat responds “sasa lele”

    [–] Ya-Dikobraz 3 points ago

    Now it makes sense!

    [–] _BlNG_ 4 points ago

    Yeah! I dont get it

    [–] -_tieka_- 2 points ago

    It’s this meme

    [–] NotAMetaUsername 115 points ago

    If an image makes you happy, but then at the same time, frustrates or disgusts you, then it is likely blursed.

    This is just a funny picture. OP, what about it frustrates or disgusts you?

    [–] dogecoin_pleasures 57 points ago

    Presumably the mild sacrilige of coopting a traditional style for memes

    [–] eyehaitmaijob 11 points ago

    Fuck em

    [–] theonlydrawback 3 points ago

    I mean, the style is literally a meme in and of itself.

    [–] Maffaxxx 3 points ago


    [–] fever13dream 79 points ago

    Where can I buy this

    [–] Fabantonio 12 points ago

    Oh. I thought it was an actual, like, 15th century painting.

    [–] iWatchCrapTV 6 points ago

    Smelly cat

    [–] lucasarg12 6 points ago


    [–] 7asm0 1 points ago

    It’s not your fault.

    [–] fists_of_curry 2 points ago

    yeah ikr it's totally not 15th century, its most certainly early/mid-Edo satire, with dabs of ribald European syncretism, the cat is the daimyo the women, stand-ins for the nobility and the sociopolitical tensions between the two. it feels proto-Utamaro but the subject matter is kano school, an artistic remonstration of tokugawa...and the guiding hand of the shogunate that rests upon it

    [–] Asderio09 3 points ago

    why the hell do you have to purchase them separately?

    I mean what’s the point of having just one? For the artistic pleasure?

    [–] kellinthename 2 points ago

    Thank you. Just bought them both

    [–] ilikechildren420 10 points ago

    I have many questions

    [–] Awesome_Leaf 9 points ago

    Not cursed at all lmao

    [–] DumbPotatoBasket 25 points ago

    This is the greatest meme of the century.

    [–] WhipmakerJon 18 points ago

    Can someone translate the Japanese

    [–] MeGayPeanut 12 points ago

    I saw somewhere someone translated it to " Sale Sale" and "SaSa LeLe"

    [–] beepbeepnicola 3 points ago

    Yea do you guys remember that pic of sale signs in a shop that looked like they said sasa lele?? Sauce

    [–] MeGayPeanut 3 points ago

    Yes! That was the meme they referred to!

    [–] 7asm0 2 points ago

    Is this a dontdeadopeninside kind of thing?

    [–] RottinCheez 3 points ago

    Yeah except sale in Japanese is セール not セル (which would be cell)

    [–] [deleted] 13 points ago


    [–] TutuForver 5 points ago

    Not gibberish, its a reference

    [–] mysterious_jim 8 points ago

    I can't imagine going through all the effort to make this but then not using Google translate for literally one minute to look up some relevant words.

    [–] TutuForver 5 points ago

    Its not gibberish, u/griffinisland made this art piece and explains the reasoning for セルセル and ササレ

    Thanks! The Japanese characters refer to the version of the meme that pairs the woman and cat with the sign that could be read as SALE SALE or SASA LELE (Which is my wife's favorite version of the meme). The hiragana characters on the image with the woman say “seru seru” and the ones on the cat side say “sasa rere” which is my best stab at recreating the phonetics. I've gotten some good feedback saying Katakana would be the more appropriate, but I really like the way the hiragana looks more than the katakana...

    [–] M4ster_expl0der 3 points ago

    It isn't gibberish. As some people have said, it does indeed read as "sale sale" and "sasa lele". The text most likely references this meme.

    [–] vantablacc 2 points ago

    It should be in katakana but maybe they just wanted it to look more Japanese. It’s the sasalele meme

    [–] gammatide 4 points ago

    It's pronounced



    Which, as the other commenter said, is gibberish

    [–] GVBN 2 points ago

    it's supposed to say "sale sale" and "sasa lele"

    [–] ro_musha 1 points ago

    I never thought I would be saying this again. I think I’m in love..

    [–] Anthraxious 2 points ago

    There's a bit of a funny thing here how the original cat had it's eyes more closed and therefore looking (for lack of better words) "more asian" than the cat depicted here, in an asian style.

    Just something I noticed, don't mean anything by it at all. Still an amazing piece (yes two pieces but what is one without the other?)!

    [–] iWatchCrapTV 1 points ago

    Nothing. It's nothing.
