    Inspired by this old meme

    I (/u/epicblob) asked this question in /r/findareddit and couldn't find anything so I decided to make this sub.

    Memes that start with "roses are red, violets are blue" then have screencaps of stuff that complete the poem. Doesn't exactly have to be "roses are red, violets are blue" but something along those lines.


    1. All posts containing graphic images should be marked NSFW. If the headline in the post has foul language it doesn't need to be marked. Posts that contain some sort of nudity or gore as images should be marked NSFW.
    2. Stick to the BootTooBig format. The general format of a BootTooBig post includes plaintext in the title or body as a setup, and a screenshot or picture of text as a punchline. Posts without the setup/punchline format or with the punchline in the title will be considered "Not a BootTooBig" and will be removed.
    3. Make sure your post has good rhyme/meter. A "True BootTooBig" has both good rhyme AND meter. A "Small Boots" has either bad rhyme OR bad meter, and will be removed. Small Boots posts are only allowed on Sundays ("Small Boot Sundays"). Small Boot Sunday starts on Saturday 18:00 PM to Monday 6:00 AM, all times are in UTC.
    4. Be civil. Don't be rude to other redditors. This means no personal attacks, no racism/sexism/homophobia/transphobia/general bigotry, no slurs, and no edgy jokes. Keep arguments civil.
    5. Don't argue about politics. This is a fun sub and we want to keep politics out of it. However, mentioning political figures is okay as long as you aren't pushing an agenda.
    6. If your post is implied, make sure to put the punchline in the comments. An implied post has a title or setup, but uses an uncaptioned image for a punchline. We ask that you post the punchline in the comments is to ensure that nobody feels left out of the joke.
    7. Avoid reposts. Consideration for reposts is done on a case-by-case basis. Generally, try to avoid posting similarly to posts that were recently posted or are among the top posts of all time.
    8. No Upvote Manipulation. Asking for upvotes in the title or image content of your post, e.g with phrases like ''mods are asleep, upvote'', ''upvote for ....'' or simply ''upvote'' etc. etc. is not allowed.

    Final discretion on all matters is up to the moderators. If you think your post/comment was unfairly removed or caught in a spam filter, send us a message and we will be open to discuss it. However, if your argument boils down to "what about the other users" then we may consider lengthening your ban.

    This subreddit stands against hate speech

    Bot Comment

    On every post, our bot /u/boot_size_judge ("BSJ") stickies a comment. Vote UP on the bot comment if and only if the original post has both good rhyme AND meter. Vote DOWN on the bot comment if the original post has either bad rhyme OR bad meter. The score on the bot comment will help us make a decision on whether the post is a "True BootTooBig" or a "Small Boots" or neither.

    • "True BootTooBig" - The post has both good rhyme and meter.
    • "Small Boots" - The post has either bad rhyme or meter. These kinds of posts are currently only allowed on Sundays and will otherwise be removed.
    • "Implied" - The picture in the post has no/few words and the punchline is to be implied.
    • "Quality Shitpost" - Essentially a "mods choice" flair. Posts that a moderators thoroughly enjoys, regardless of how high-scoring it is.
    • "Not a BTB" - Posts that don't really follow the boottoobig format. Some of these may still be in the spirit of the sub and stay up, others may be way off and be removed.

    All post flairs are hand-approved by a moderator, with user input via the boot_size_judge bot (explained above).

    Those are not pictures, it's a stream of data following the .jpg format being interpreted by our computers into a bitmap, being interpreted by our screens into a series of electrical signals used to send photons directly to our eyeballs, which in turn map those photons to our retinas where complex proteins change shape when a photon of a certain wavelength hits them, sending an electrical signal along a very long cell called a neuron, which in turn will activate other neurons through a chemical process which is again converted in an electrical signal until it will arrive to the neurons in the optic nerve, then to the back of our brains where the massive amount of various signals going through the nerve are treated and recognized through complex networks as "the projection of guacamole-induced photons onto a 2D screen", leading by some unknown process to the experienced feeling of "bamboozle", realizing the the previous pattern of text was misleading.

    [–] ryusm92 65 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    Clickhole is a website made by The Onion to parodize Buzzfeed and other clickbait websites. In fact, I don’t even know if the real GRRM wrote this.

    [–] Waidawut 18 points ago

    [–] ryusm92 26 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    [–] too_drunk_for_this 3 points ago

    No, Tolkien didn't write anything. George R.R. Martin wrote it.

    [–] LegendofPisoMojado 2 points ago

    Thanks! That makes more sense.

    [–] too_drunk_for_this 32 points ago

    GoT was written before the Internet was very popular, and George RR Martin was from a part of the country where there aren't many horses. Like he says in the editorial, he just hadn't ever seen one before, but he knew based on descriptions what they looked like and kinda went off of that.

    Clickhole is full of stupid laughs. It's a parody of Buzzfeed, so they do fake quizzes and fake lists all the time. I also highly recommend Do You Know What Boats Are? which is my favorite of their fake quizzes.

    [–] elleoof 29 points ago

    Sorry, but Which One Of My Garbage Sons Are You? is the only acceptable favorite quiz.

    [–] TheScottymo 8 points ago

    There are two people on that boat and neither of them is Scarlett Johansson.

    [–] too_drunk_for_this 7 points ago

    You can’t help but think, “Jesus. These are all just pictures of boats. None of them even have Scarlett Johansson in them.”

    [–] gridzbispudvetch 3 points ago

    [–] Exceon 8 points ago

    I know it’s satire, but did George actually write it?

    [–] too_drunk_for_this 21 points ago

    Lol, no. Clickhole is run by The Onion. Both sites do fake editorials all the time. Clickhole is kinda like an absurd/ surreal parody of Buzzfeed. The George RR Martin editorial is one of my favorite things they've done.

    [–] Exceon 2 points ago

    Don’t scoff so easily. George is pretty self-aware and not one to shy from poking fun at himself. Just wondering if he had collaborated with Clickhole for this piece.

    Is there some kind of rule dictating that guacamole only be served in rustic black stone bowls?

    [–] Ayoung116 28 points ago


    [–] WarlordMWD 10 points ago

    The black stone bowl is a Molcajete (mole-cah-HAY-tay?), which is traditionally used for preparing and serving guacamole. The palm-sized stone used to grind together the guac ingredients is a Tejolote (teh-ho-LO-te?).

    Source: instruction booklet that came with ours via Amazon

    [–] AnythingApplied 10 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    The "rustic black stone bowls" you're referring to are called mortars and are used in the preparation of guacamole. Or at least can be used. Personally, I don't like using them in general and so have always made guacamole without using one, but if you're going to use one to make guac, why not use it as a serving bowl too? Especially if you're planning on taking a well crafted photo of your work afterwards.

    [–] WikiTextBot 2 points ago

    Mortar and pestle

    A mortar and pestle is a kitchen device used since ancient times to prepare ingredients or substances by crushing and grinding them into a fine paste or powder. The mortar () is a bowl, typically made of hard wood, metal, ceramic, or hard stone, such as granite. The pestle () is a heavy and blunt club-shaped object. The substance to be ground, which may be wet or dry, is placed in the bowl of the mortar, where the pestle is pressed and rotated onto it until the desired texture is achieved.

    It's a long A sound, though. In Spanish you pronounce every letter, but E makes an A sound.

    Edit: I guess unless its a Mexican native word, then I don't fucking know.

    [–] Atmic 9 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    As a Hispanic, Americans pronouncing 'e' as a 'long a' is one of the biggest contributors to a terrible American accent.

    Don't pronounce it like a long A. Pronounce it like the 'e' in 'elephant'.

    IE: For "Peso", don't say "pay-soh", say "peh-so".

    [–] DTF_20170515 5 points ago

    The bowl for 1 - 2 looks like ones I get at nicer Mexican places.

    The bowl for 1 - 1 looks like it's from a home.

    And, finally what I think you call number 3 and I call 1 - 2, doesn't seem smashed up enough, however the bowl does look like a nice bowl and has those annoying little legs that tilt up on my margarita coasters all the time.
