I was little and heard people talk about it but I only saw the show in reruns. It was an era where POW-MIA flags were all over and I didn’t understand what the big deal was, just how kids today are told “NEVER FORGET” for 9/11 when they weren’t even alive yet…. so what do they do in memes? Make fun of the thing. Can’t blame them.
Kids today also make fun of Columbine (pumped up kicks is a meme favorite) as it happened before they were born and yet they have to suffer with “school shooter drills”. They also make fun of the psyche of school shooters in memes, as the “autistic REEEEE” that gets pushed over the edge, 1/2 relating to the stress and 1/2 believing it couldn’t happen to them… and wow did I go off track.
