Uncle Meme - SNL
Saturday Night Live hasn't been too funny in recent years, but this skit is at least a little bit funny.

mrgreen: Awkwardly funny. It's not nice to meme people! LOL It could have been worse considering some of the typical uncle jokes people like to tell. I would never do this to my own uncle. I'd do it to some body else's uncle!

Facebook Launches Hateful Memes Challenge With a $100k Prize to Build an AI That Detects Spicy Memes
Developing AI to identify content is not difficult, but identifying intent is not nearly as simple. However, discerning the difference between truly hateful speech and sarcastic humor is nearly impossible. On top of that, it depends on the context and context can be a composite of many subtle contextual cues. To add to the complexity of the problem, is that part of a communication may involve a combination of an image with text and the fact that many "memes" can be very ambiguous in terms of how the message is interpreted. Ultimately, I think this entire project will get bogged down with ideology which will skew the way the problem is defined to begin with. Also I think that harmlessly humorous intent will be confused with hateful intent and the biggest casualty of this project will be humor and a world without humor is certainly extremely dull and bleak.... but very safe.... and that's what they want. No one should have their "fee-wings" hurt!

Trump’s ‘Racist Baby’ Video Tweet Flagged as Altered Media :smack:
First of all, Trump did not create the video. No one working for Trump created the video. All Trump did was re-tweet the hilariously witty video. The video was made by a known meme-maker named Logan Cook who identifies himself as "eternally sarcastic." The doctored video actually makes an extremely valid point about fake news and CNN in general. Therefore, it easily is protected by both free speech laws and fair use as defined by copyright law. Further, the idea of suing Trump or Cook is ludicrous and nothing more than a cheap, half-witted publicity stunt at best.
