I was thinking a meme featuring something along the line of bushes. So I wasn't even meme searching.I was like, "Hey, that looks familiar!" LOL!

I happened across it by accident while searching for "Hiding in the bushes". There was a page on pintrest with a little more info, though I did not read it. I am wondering if it was a DIY kind of thing because it's not been easy finding them for sale.

There is no rhyme or reason to it, if you submit original content it gets a spot on google images somewhere. It's just a matter of what you search for. I've come across this one several times imgflip.com/i/1jlvru and it didn't do so well on here. Of course having something do good on this site is not any type of guarantee it will pop up first on a google search. Even memes I've had get over 500,000 views on reddit don't pop up first when I search the topic. Just wait until people start reposting your stuff like they made it themselves ;)

Yes, I know! I just thought it was funny that as I was browsing randomly for inspiration I came across my own creation in the results! :)

I understand that's a great feeling and you deserve to feel good about it :) People think I'm a jerk for not liking reposts. That I think I'm better than others because my stuff is original. When really I speak out against reposting because you will never get a feeling like you had when you saw something you created out on the interwebs.

It's not an easy thing to create something all your own and put it out there to be judged by everybody. I have a lot of respect for anybody brave enough to share their creative side with others, especially making something that you hope will make somebody else laugh. What better gift could you give somebody than creating a reason for them to laugh or just smile for a minute out of their day. There are so many reasons not to laugh in this world, to me people simply attempting to create something new for people to laugh at should be commended.

Even if I fail and what I create isn't as funny as I thought it was, I still focused my energy on trying to create something for the benefit of others. You can fake a lot of things in the meme world, you can repost and pretend you made it, you can get a group of friends and all upvote each other, you can even make a bunch of alt accounts and upvote yourself so it looks like people love your work. You can't fake the feeling you get when something you created is loved by people though. You can't fake being somebody that wants to do nothing more than put some laughter out in the world.

I can't expect everybody to see things the way I do. All I can do is try to use my ability as a writer to explain the way I feel like I do and hope some of it makes sense ;)

Well no. I just thought it was humorous. And I appreciate your taking the time to explain all this. (We have had our discussions in the past on some of these points you may recall. ) But this wasn't meant to be anything but fun. :)

I hit comment before I meant to.

I was going to add, I understand your feelings on reposts. My opinion has changed a bit. I think some of us are a little more serious about making memes, and others maybe just enjoy the interaction and sharing what they have found elsewhere. Of course actually saying you made something you didn't is another story entirely, but I have not seen that actually happen here that I can recall. I like to make my own original stuff, but I also know that there is no way to know if someone else had the idea first elsewhere. I don't expect people to do an extensive search to find if they are the 6th or 7th person to think of an idea. Sometimes people get inspired and have an idea that others also have had. I don't want to discourage anyone from feeling free to create because they are fearful someone will accuse them of reposting.

I know all the arguments and I have an answer to all of them lol. Feels like it's all I've talked about today. I've always prided myself on being able to look at things from another persons perspective. I also try not to let emotions entangle my thoughts and choke the logic out of them. It's hard for me to let it go mainly since I have seen just how poorly reposters are treated on other sites. People here get upset over one person pointing out a repost. I've seen long threads of comments that are just one person after another calling the person who reposted every name in the book.
I suppose that makes me have little sympathy for anybody crying about being called a reposter here. I have also never seen somebody called a reposter that hadn't reposted. One of the main things I hear all the time is that people can't be expected to search every idea. Anytime I've called out a repost I searched and found the original first, usually in just a matter of minutes.
Again I may be jaded in my opinion based on the fact that out of my nearly 1800 submissions I never once had to search to see if my idea was original. Somehow I made all those memes without anybody even questioning if I was the one who made them. Mistakes and coincidences do occur I'm sure, I have never personally seen that happen myself is all.
I have posted a repost of Han Solo and Chewy in a Macarena pose because I thought it was hilarious. Thing is a tagged it with (this might be a repost) (ok it's definitely a repost) and if somebody told me they liked it I made sure they knew I didn't make it.
The first thing somebody says when you point out a repost is that reposts don't matter blah blah every meme is a repost, nobody cares that it's a repost. The whole time it's obvious they are pissed that you called them out, why be pissed if you truly believe it's cool to repost? The maddest ones have always already replied to a bunch of comments accepting compliments like they made it themselves. Kinda hard not to look bad there.
If they are going to happen it shouldn't be often and it should state somewhere that it's a repost they wanted to share.
Think about this one... if the site decided to add another set of pages like hot and latest only this one was where all the reposts go. How many people do you think would click on a link to go to the part of the site with the old memes on it? Would you want to make the top of the repost front page? If you had the choice....
