Coming up with openers for an unspecified meme list is challenging—one of the many reasons why I am sure to be replaced by AI in the near future. I asked OpenAI’s ChatGPT to write me a “funny story about a meme,” and this is what it came up with. The results are—well—you can be the judge of that. But I think my job is safe… for now, at least.
“Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived a group of memes. These memes were known throughout the land for their wit, humor, and their ability to make people laugh. One day, a new meme arrived in the land. It was called “Distracted Boyfriend.”
At first, the other memes were skeptical of Distracted Boyfriend. They thought he was just another meme trying to get in on the action. But soon, they realized that Distracted Boyfriend was different. He was hilarious and had a unique perspective on the world.
As the days passed, Distracted Boyfriend became more and more popular. Everyone wanted to be his friend, and he was invited to all the best meme parties. But with fame came jealousy, and some of the other memes began to feel threatened by Distracted Boyfriend’s success.
One day, the other memes decided to play a prank on Distracted Boyfriend. They set up a fake party and invited him to attend. When Distracted Boyfriend arrived, he found himself alone in a room with a single spotlight shining down on him.
“What’s going on?” he asked.
“We’re sorry, Distracted Boyfriend,” the other memes said. “We just couldn’t handle your popularity. We wanted to take you down a peg.”
Distracted Boyfriend laughed. “Don’t worry, guys,” he said. “There’s enough meme love to go around.”
And with that, the other memes realized that Distracted Boyfriend wasn’t a threat, but a friend. They all hugged it out and went back to making people laugh. And from that day on, Distracted Boyfriend became an even bigger meme sensation, loved by all.”
