Oomer Wojak Memes Go Historical With The 6,500 Year Old Soomer

Over the last year or so we've seen a lot of iterations of the "Oomer Wojak" meme. From 30 Year Old Boomer to pessimistic Doomer memes, the formats seem endlessly customizable. And Memers are getting pretty creative as the meme becomes more popular. Soomer memes are proof. We're not sure what possessed someone to make an ancient Sumerian version of Wojak, but we're definitely not complaining. The memes are so detailed they often contain actual cuneiform. It's nice to see Wojak memes adopt a non-tradwife lean. We just need to brush up on our ancient languages.

George Washington Memes That Depict The First President As An Absent Father

Here's an interesting bit of historical trivia: George Washington helped raise step-children from wife Martha Washington's previous marriage, but the two never had biological children since George was likely left sterile after a bout of smallpox. Of course, we're pretty sure George was incredibly sad about this too, but these memes paint him as absent and Martha as baby-crazy. Despite their historical inaccuracy, we found them hilarious, and we're pretty sure you will too.

History-Packed Twitter Thread Uses Spanish Flu Missteps To Highlight Importance Of Masks

As people in the United States are suffer from cabin fever and empty pockets, some citizens and law makers are protesting everything from lockdowns to wearing masks. Most medical experts, including the esteemed Dr. Fauci, warn against loosening coronavirus-related restrictions too quickly. They're worried it could lead to more illness, and even worse, death. Nobody wants to take one step forward and two steps back when lives are on the line.

 In response, NPR Investigative correspondent Tim Mak decided to do some serious digging regarding San Francisco's Anti-Mask League of 1918. The Anti-Mask league's moniker is pretty self explanatory. It was a group that rejected the use of masks following the initial Spanish Flu outbreak. After months of keeping inside and wearing masks when they needed to join the outside world, people decided they were over it. Up to 90% of people decided to go maskless. After the city proposed mandatory mask-use, thousands of people calling themselves the Anti-Mask league showed up to protest. As Spanish Flu cases in the California City were rising. Eventually, a mandatory mask ordinance was enacted, and cases (after increasing) seemed to slow down. Still, San Francisco was one of the hardest-hit American cities. The thread is a cautionary tale - and you can read the gory details below. 

Stay safe, and please wear a mask.
