Memes Language: “Stay with whoever looks at you like…”
Social media changed the way we bond, that’s not new. But, moreover, they brought a new form of expression: memes. How many times do we not understand what we are talking about because we missed the last meme that is circulating? Did it happen to them? Many times, these expressions also move into everyday life and, some of them, have already settled in our speech. For example: stay with whoever looks at you as…
“ Stay with whoever looks at you like…”: where does this meme come from? In principle, it is an adaptation of a beautiful phrase by Frida Kahlo. The original actually said, “Pick a lover who looks at you like maybe you’re magic.” This turned to “love whoever looks at you like you’re magic,” and finally, “stay with whoever looks at you like you’re magic.” A beautiful phrase in any of its versions .
Transforming romanticism into a joke, the phrase of the Mexican artist was reverted into infinite variants. It’s just that “stay with whoever looks at you like…” gives everything. Thus, images that graph this feeling in the most varied ways are constantly circulating: “stay with whoever looks at you like that”, “stay with whoever looks at you as x looks at y ”, “stay with whoever looks at you as the baby looks at the sandwich”, among many others.
It’s just, when something’s so present, we see it everywhere. And we are all able to improvise our own meme, and others understand it, because it is floating in the air and We all think the same. That’s what social networksgenerate: thousands of minds connected, making the same jokes, even if they do not know each other.
You, anyway, listen to Frida and stay with whoever looks at you like you’re magic.
