  • Marcus Aurelius is known for his philosophy and other writings. The name “Marcus Aurelius” sounds like “Marcus or Elius”, which Henry Cavill in the meme mistakes as a choice between two actual people. Not wanting to come across as unread, meme Henry Cavill responds with a boastful affirmative answer. However, because he has not heard of Marcus Aurelius, meme Henry Cavill’s response of “Both” reveals his pseudo-intellectualism, intention to deceive, and insecurity to the interviewer and the audience.

    More effort for the creator to edit? Possibly isolates audiences unfamiliar with the franchise, particularly those who wouldn’t know that the fish is a newscaster or that the stylized TV is a TV? Also, the wojak is underwater and as a human presumably wouldn’t be able to breathe (boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder).

    I’m also just now noticing that a real life photo of clothes has been edited onto the cartoon wojak. It seems like there’s too much hyperstylization in the visuals in contrast to what is supposed to be a generic idea in the message.
