I should start doing a “meme of the day” blog.
Every morning a dozen or so youngsters gather at my feet to ask, “Papa Jeff, what makes a good meme?” Fortuitously, I can now point to this picture of a ridiculously handsome and poised jiu jitsu fighter and say, “This guy.”
Meet Clark Gracie (grandson of Carlos Gracie — the creator of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu). Expect to see this handsome chap popping up on your internet en masse soon, with photoshopped quips about his devilishly handsome lethality. For the record, he is not being thrown, but rather has his Ben Stiller-looking opponent in a shoulder bar move called an Omoplata (I checked the comments on Reddit — I don’t just sit around knowing jiu jitsu moves, though I’d probably be a lot cooler if I did). How he can do it while still maintaining a zen-like state of heightened f*ckability, well, that’s anybody’s guess.
This meme is brand-spankin’ new, so there isn’t much on it (and most of it relates to how much he looks like the guy from “The Princess Bride”), so tell you what: We are going to make one (a Godless, awful one), but we want to see what you can do. Show us in the comments, Rockstars.
