What’s Happening

Bernie Sanders is showing up everywhere sitting in a foldable chair wearing his mask and mittens, and the meme makers can’t seem to get enough of him.  Was Bernie actually the fifth Beatle, and was he with the Grateful Dead in 1970 when they were sitting on bales of hay.  Bernie Sanders looked a bit grumpy when he turned up on Capitol Hill for the swearing-in ceremony of Joe Biden and now this has gone viral.  Our country is going through a pandemic and there are a slew of very serious issues going on in the world, but ever since someone created a website that lets you place the Bernie Sanders inauguration meme anywhere in the world, this craze has taken on a life of its own, but we should all make time to have some fun.  Eliminating the Capital Hill background from the photo and making Bernie the center of attention wherever he is placed, has become the greatest abstraction of 2021.  It doesn’t make all that much sense to me, but it is much better than all the unrest that has been in the air lately.

  1. One of the weirder but funnier fads of the last few years… some of the placements have been pretty inventive (I saw one where some TV anchor’s tie had been made into a pattern of tiny seated Bernies for instance)
