And 1-and 2-and 3-and lift!
I came across this thread on Reddit a few hours ago when it was first posted. At that point it didn’t have that much karma (fake internet points, for those uninitiated to the ways of Reddit), but as I write this it has close to 5,000 — which is quite a lot for a post on the highly critical website. It doesn’t surprise me in the least that it blew up as big and as fast as it did because these posters are hilarious.
Redditor, and resident funny-girl, evelee informed me that she had made the posters for her roller derby team, The Rolling Blackouts (great name). She had posted them to Facebook where they were received with much acclaim, so she decided to share them with the Reddit community. Posting something on Facebook before Reddit? For shame, evelee. For shame!
Basically, they are a parody of the sometimes ridiculous and oftentimes controversial Fitspiration posters that are all over Facebook, Pinterest, and Tumblr, as well as a ton of other sites. Evelee took her Drunkspiration quotes from a Reembody blog post maligning the “inspiring” posters and slapped ’em on a few images that she found more appropriate. And I wholeheartedly agree with her choices!
It’s all in good fun, so please understand that neither I or evelee are condoning any of these activities, especially when engaging in extreme physical activities. Although, a rousing game of wiffle ball would be acceptable I think. Just make sure to get it on video.
Good work, internet friend!
