A Civil War Hits London, This Shocking One Second a Day Video Shows How it Destroys a Little Girl’s Life

Wow.

Holy crap

Holy Crap is right.

Excellent piece for a journal entry, rhetoric, narrative, and a million other things. Incredible. Well done.

What a great use of visual rhetoric. Man, @jimmorin kills. It’s scathing, relevant and accessible. This illustration could be a great open-ended practice AP prompt. This comic not only addresses contemporary issues, but it could apply to literature as well. 
What would Gatsby’s  headline look like in this comic? Write Hester Prynne’s tombstone according to Morin. How would Faulkner rewrite these tombstones for his characters?

Great post to explain point of view.

Source desperately needed.

There is only so
Much to decipher between
The I-es and the eyes.

I wish this book were real so I could annotate it and argue with myself.

Interesting.

Existential Star Wars

Wow. Although I’m not a huge Star Wars  fan, this is a great remix. I not only enjoy the remix of it, but I enjoy the philosophical aspect of it. The recontextualization is not only unique, but it also carries with it huge impact in terms of context of philosophy, not just Star Wars.

Well, he was sorta asking for it, dressing in such flammable clothing.

if he didnt want to get set on fire, he should have stayed indoors

He was probably drinking that night, alcohol makes you susceptible to fire.

If it’s a legitimate inferno, the male body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.

God I love you, Internet.

Why didn’t he stop, drop, and roll? He should have stopped, dropped, and rolled. He must have secretly wanted it.

If you read the article, eyewitnesses said the man had purchased a lighter earlier that same day. Dude probably set himself on fire and lied about it. Typical.

He should have relaxed and enjoyed it. After all it was just a bit of kindling cuddling

We need to start educating people about wearing fire-safe clothing and carrying extinguishers with them at all times. For their own safety.

Everytime i see this, the comments keep getting better

Tragic, yes. However, I think these posts are important on a number of levels. First, the remixing of “rape culture” aphorisms is great. They turn rhetoric against its user. Not only is this a powerful mode of thinking, but it also highlights the absurdity of the source material. Secondly, I agree with everything that is said here. 
I will do my best to try and work this into a lesson with my students. The remix and rhetoric is not only clever and worthy of note, it is also an important social statement.
Bravo .
