Oh, so the original was just a reactionary meme, and the text on the bottom was supposed to be an addendum to respond to the reactionary meme? Well, that was not clear at all.

It is now, since I know what to look for. But it wasn't at first. Most people don't pay much attention to the font and color of the text they're reading, and I wasn't when I was reading it, so it didn't register that the bottom text was supposed to be in response to the top text. I assumed ziq wrote the whole thing. The top part pissed me off, and the bottom part seemed like a non-sequitur. If they had put the bottom text outside of the original image, like on a white border, instead of putting it over the original image, then it might have been more intuitive that it was supposed to be a response.
