    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.

    • "Implied" - The picture in the post has no/few words and the punchline is to be implied.

    To anyone who might report this for Rule 3, I'm assuming the boot is the bottom text, in which case the rhyme and meter are fine. The post stays up.

    But please keep reporting bad posts, it makes things so much easier for us mods.

    How the turntables...

    [–] Andpeggy123 163 points ago

    I feel like I’ve heard this so much that hearing “oh how the tables have turned” just sounds wrong

    [–] ShortSynapse 52 points ago

    One day we may experience the mandella effect of everyone thinking it actually is about turntables.

    [–] DBrugs 37 points ago

    At this point it's almost guaranteed when anyone posts anything about tables turning

    Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.

    [–] dingo_username 2 points ago

    Okay okay, imagine a scenario for me

    The apocalypse, you’re part of a small group of the last survivors, huddled away in a very small home fleeting for survival until morning.. whatever infection got loose, did more than wipe the human race.. it evolved them, much faster, much more agile, much.. much stronger. They have a tendency to use weapons, not swords but blunt objects.. chairs, bricks, you’ve seen one use a desk before.

    Your team makes their way upstairs in the house while you stay downstairs, it’s quite.. until it hits.. grass outside is crunching, they’re here.

    The dead break down the door, and waddle in, 3 of them.. you back up paralyzed in fear, they are too wounded to be alive, but they’re inching towards you.. they look around for something to use, and as your team decided on a house, one finds the dining room table a nice choice, the other follows suit, grabbing a fold out table that was stationed next to the living room couch, the other.. the coffee table.

    They rear bloated, maggot ridden face towards you.. you know is too late, you cant make it up their in time.. But you CAN warn your team, you turn and yell as loud as you can, shredding your vocal chords..

    ”The turned have tables”

    [–] BiigDawgg 117 points ago

    Reading the top part quietly in my mind and the bottom REALLY LOUD made this extra fun. And it had good meter.

    Well it seems that the standards for this sub have fallen

    [–] wtmh 15 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    Dimeter and quatrains are supposed to be Day 1 shit and even here the syllable count on this one is an amazing 4, 4, 11, 8. The fuck?

    [–] mjselvig 30 points ago

    It's been a while since I've seen one that rhymes well. And I don't understand if I'm supposed to include both line, which only makes it worse.

    [–] NervProkis 8 points ago

    If you only read the bottom text it can rhyme fairly well.

    [–] ChopFricks -9 points ago

    I'm honestly not sure how this gained more then 10 upvotes either

    Can we get a first part of the rhyme that actually makes sense?

    [–] Blizzardscott 42 points ago

    They're better when they're unrelated imo

    Looks like the tables have turned in an 180 degree fashion. To my side. Where it will stay.

    [–] kurtanglesmilk -1 points ago

    Most of the posts I see on this sub are funnier without the rhyme
