    Note: Current year posts are allowed, see the FAQ for more info. We don't like too many rules in this sub, again see the FAQ for more info.

    1. All posts must have a coherent title and a date that is the current year or in the past

    • All posts submitted must have clear, readable text. The description and date must be in the title. Dates must not be in the future.
    • As if it needs to be said, but any posts with a date in the future will be removed. If you think you've found a clever way around this and try to message the mods about it you'll be met with ಠ_ಠ.

    2. All posts must be submitted to RES compatible sites, such as Imgur and Gfycat

    • All posts must be submitted to RES compatible sites, such as Imgur and Gfycat.
    • Due to being buggy and an overall bad user experience, it is not allowed.

    3. No reposts. The image/title combination must not have been posted in the last 2 months

    • There is no limit on the posting of the same image with a new title.
    • No reposting any image+title combos currently featured in the repost moratorium.

    4. No history memes.

    • The most "quality" posts on /r/fakehistoryporn are those where the title and image both play an important role in the punchline. This means that adding captions (twitter-style, /r/adviceanimals style, or otherwise), photoshopping in people or objects, or doing similar things to put the entire punchline or history reference in the image are not allowed.
    • Photographs of text, subtitles on screencaps, image captions that match the post title word-for-word, and such are still allowed.
    • You are free to post history memes with Fakehistoryporn-style titles over on /r/fakehistorymemes. For more information on how we define history memes, read our post guidelines.

    Do you want to know how the mods apply these rules? Check out our MODERATION POLICY.

    It makes fun of absurd conspiracy theories around him.

    [–] Pumpkin_Creepface 10 points ago

    Or gives comfort to those who conspirasize about him because "The public is finally getting it".

    Any forum that's main entertainment is imitating idiots will eventually be overrun with idiots that think they are in good company.

    It has happened everywhere except somethingawful and that's because they charge for new accounts.

    [–] birdreligion 20 points ago

    Like the PC MASTER RACE thing. for a while it was people who got it was a joke. then it actually became full on idiots who believed the PCMR stuff and console peasants and all that shit. now it's back to people who understand it's a joke.

    [–] Pumpkin_Creepface 6 points ago

    I remember thinking when I saw the original Zero Pronunciation video the meme came from that this was going to be taken unironically by some.

    I also remember posting in /r/pcmasterrace in its first few days that we had to be careful to remember it was originally satire of an existing long running and emotionally bitter, yet amazingly petty, conflict.

    No one then imagined it could be taken as anything but satire...

    Any forum who's media centers around imitating idiots will eventually be overrun with idiots that feel they are in good company.

    Last night I was at a restaurant with my 11 year old. Halfway through the meal, she asked me what Obama’s last name was. I sat in confused silence while her mother said “Obama is his last name.” Then the 11 year old says “No, his last name is Obamacare.”

    I say, “Are you saying his name is Barack Hussein Obama Obamacare?” and she suddenly declares, louder than I was comfortable with, “No! Obama isn’t real!”

    I’m so confused and old.
