Geneva Gets a Meme?
Be careful of the unexpected when taking photos! Occasionally, unwanted people or animals can pop-up in the background! This internet craze, when something unexpected appears in your photo, is known as a meme. Last week, a photo of a Stingray in Grand Cayman, pictured behind innocent, scared bystanders, went viral and received thousands of hits! (Huffingtonpost.com). This meme looked like it received a little help from a prankster, but it was a great photo and it received worldwide coverage.
Did you know that Geneva may be developing a photographic meme of its own, too?! It may not be quite as scary as a stingray, or as cute and cuddly as a koala bear, but it’s shaping-up to be a big hit!
Larry the Lad is a swan, and he is known for his lad-ish tendencies around the lake! Not only does he have a penchant for hogging the limelight in photos, he also enjoys chasing the female swans, as well as sneaking a cheeky swig of beer from unattended cups! Consider yourself warned!
Without further ado…Biskotti would like to introduce you to Geneva’s very own meme!
