The Hall of Shame Blahhh-Theme-Protest

We have turned a blind eye for long enough (and Memeshame has just opened his). We’ve been a little loathe to bite the hands that have given us so much entertainment over the last months but at this juncture, having just awoken to the unworthy offering of ‘spring’ from the Lensday people, we’re getting the banners out and calling the photomeme moderators to task for what has been a particularly drab few months of unimaginative…dare I even call them such?...”challenges”. We lay before you, the punters, the ignominious evidence:

Lensday, April 11 - Spring
Thursday Challenge, March 29 - Spring
Tuesday Challenge, March 27 - Spring
Macroday, March 25 – Green
Thursday Challenge, March 22- Green
Lensday, Feb 14- Green
Lensday, March 14- Green
Lensday, March 21- Yellow
Unique Exposures, April 7- Yellow

*Yawwwwn*
Kudos to Moody Monday, Photo Sharks and Photo Friday for granting us a bit of variety. And a nod in the direction of that new little upstart, Shutterday, for a cheeky attempt at subversion (which failed miserably since at least a third of participants posted contrary to Homer Laffoone’s instructions).

We Memes pride ourselves on the service we provide to the community so, ever helpful, we are hereby providing the photo meme bosses free of charge with a list of original and challenging themes to choose from. It will save them the bother of thinking and will no doubt get you participants’ juices flowing.

(Note to photo meme moderators: if you would like to use one of the suggestions below, mail us so we can take it of the list. First come, first served. All decisions made at Hall’s discretion. No correspondence may be entered into, etc.)

“Repetitive”
“Bland”
“deja-vu”
“collusion”
“sheep”
“photo”


Memeshame suggests…
“underwear”
“underwear while still being worn”
“lingerie”
“see-through”

or any combination of the above

Thank You for speaking out!

And ... how did you know my favorite color is see-through?

Not only have the themes become boring and repetative, I also never seem to have a fitting submissions. I don't think my photography has taken an odd turn, but for some reason I am barely able to find anything even remotely related... I would like a medal for my submission restraint, by the way.

Some day, my theme will come.
