Well, he appeared for the first time in 1962 and we can assume that he was an adult at the time, so ... :-)

Not quite an adult. I think his age was about 16 or 17 at the time. He was still in high school. He was still in high school when I started reading his adventures in '66. That'd put his age at about 70.

My problem is I have ideas so fast that eben if imgflip offered extra memes for pro accounts, I'd still have extras. They're nice when you get memers block. LOL

My ideas tend to come in waves, I started a meme stream just for when I get ideas I can post them there. Then if I ever don't have time to make something I have back ups, I usually have no trouble thinking something up but sometimes I get busy with work and it's nice to have them then.

I write. I love doing comedy writing, but it's finding the right inspiration. The other day KenJ commented about how he drinks like a fish. I replied with a link to a meme that featured a few weeks ago about drinking like a fish. It got insured him to make a meme that featured and is doing well. His original idea was to use a whale in the gag, but he said it didn't sound right. I ran with the word whale, did bad pun Dangerfield, and it just featured. A while ago, I stumbled on his meme and there were comments there which lead me in another direction, and another Meme.

I tell the whiners that complain about no points, upvotes, or comments to get involved with the comments. My granddaughter, 15, knows the comments are the best part of memes. We inspire one another, especially when we get into a meme off where we try to one up. Those comments keep front page memes going strong.

I'm also a writer and comedy is a large part of my job. You are absolutely correct commenting is the way to go if you want the creativity to just flow. I've never really thought of it as a competition where I try to one up somebody else though, to me it's just about bouncing ideas back and forth and seeing where things end up. Don't get me wrong I'm not trying to say anything negative about your comment, I just don't think of memes as something to compete over. It's kinda hard with the whole point system for people to believe that sometimes, but I started out here just having fun commenting and making stuff and I like to think I would be doing exactly the same regardless of what amount of points I have.

I think we are incredibly lucky to have found this site, there are so many awesomely creative people here and I enjoy making memes with them so much more than I would if I was just making memes by myself. Everybody adds to the experience of imgflip, new or old, 1,000 points or 1,000,000 it doesn't matter. There is no other form of comedy like this and I think the future of memeing is going to show it becoming more and more popular.

When I get into a one up situation, I look at it more for the fun aspect. This is the first place I've come across on the internet where people actually have fun doing it. I love it if I can't come up with a funny reply. It's the perfect applause for someone else. But you have to look at where I come from. I was a comic, and it's serious business. Once on stage, we'd often try to crack the other comics up while they would do the same to us. How did these adlib sessions work? Very well. The audience got a great show and we flexed our comedy muscles. But we never got vicious with each other. After a show, we'd stop off for a bite to eat and discuss the routines. I'd pull out my notebook and suggest this or that follow up line in their routine, or a different wording. I could always tell the comers from the guys that would be asking if you want fries with that from their reactions. The fry guys would look and say, "why would I say that" while the ones that moved up would come up with a way more natural to pull off the gag, or try it in their mouths to see how natural it "tasted" to them. The first writing I did for someone else was to have him flip the bird at the end of that bit. ET had just come out and, though I hadn't seen it, I realized he was doing a dead on impression. After the show, sitting at a diner, he said he didn't know how to close out the bit where ET saw his friends leave. He said he knew it had something to do with his fingers. I did his bit, but showed him watching the ship rise and had him flip the bird while saying "home". Doesn't read well, but in action, when he did it in the next show, it brought down the house.

I love it that there are people that I think are funnier than me so willing to share their humor, and they enjoy sharing mine. I hate it when a noob posts about how Raydog does so well with his " lame" memes. I look and see they've been here for a couple weeks, done four or five poor memes, no comments, and they can't figure out why they haven't got a million points. I can tell them, but they say that's too much work. When I started commenting on my original account, I couldn't get over how fast my points shot up. I did an afraid to ask Andy meme about it, and it went over like gangbusters because it was positive. I don't know how I got so many points. And at this point, I'm afraid to ask. I think you even commented. But I think I got more Comments because it wasn't a gripe but a good news meme about the site.

That's awesome, it's so cool to meet another person who looks at this the same way I do. Commenting also reminds me of sitting around with my buddies trying to be the one who cracks a better joke than the last. Only we get a bit of time to think on it and even put a picture with it to really get across what we want to express. I don't think there is another community like this anywhere on the internet. I think that's part of the issue with noobs around here sometimes. They are used to other sites where the "idea" of comedy is trying to make a negative comment and insult the creator of whatever. I try to give them the benefit of the doubt that they just haven't experienced a place where being yourself and creating positive comments that are funny. Can actually let you be a part of something that can help you learn to express themselves in a positive way that other people will enjoy.

Some of my first memes were horrible and I write for a living lol. It was people like Raydog, Socrates, Reallyitsjohn, and especially Invicta at first that saw I was here to be positive and have fun so they took the time to show me the ropes. I had no idea how to photo shop anything and now because of the community on this site, I have found an entirely new passion and way to express what I find funny to other people. I've been playing with the idea of making a graphic novel type meme book. I've made a few multi panel memes that I've attempted to tell more of a story with but even if people like them, they don't won't to scroll past a 9 panel meme after they've read it a few times lol.

The possibilities are endless and the more people I meet like yourself the more excited I get about the evolution of memes. People use memes to communicate all over social media and in texts constantly. The idea of never knowing where something you create may end up is a constant fuel to keep me making more every day. I'm really glad we have had this conversation I look forward to future ones and of course memeing with you down the road.
