Meme Monday: One Does Not Simply
It's Jose. I'm writing the post for this meme because I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan, so this meme is right up my alley. The meme references one of the most popular and mocked lines that the character of Boromir says during the scenes at the Council of Elrond. After Elrond (or Agent Smith from the Matrix, who knows) says that the ring must be taken to the land of Mordor and thrown into Mount Doom, Boromir infamously says: "One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful."
It's no surprise that it was made into a meme. The way the meme works is Boromir talks about situations or things that one does not simply do. The jokes range from things that are actually difficult (eg. One does not simply become an astronaut), to being slightly sarcastic (eg. One does not simply joke about spiders). So now you know. Go on and make your own. Here's some of our favorites!
Some awesome lists!
