If Your 5 Favorite Memes Offered Online Degrees

By: 12.12.11

The Internet is an idea engine, hooking hundreds of thousands of brains together in parallel, and then discovering that most of them have nothing better to do. The result is a font of creative insanity which can keep you busy forever, an eternal distraction engine, or a huge repository of information. You have the ability learn about jet engines or get an online accounting degree and educate yourself about almost anything.

But what if you accidentally crossed the streams and tried to do both? If you combine memes with higher education, there’s no accounting for what kind of degree you might end up with.

My Little Pony

Advanced Brony – Friendship is (Networking) Magic

My Little Pony is one of the latest and most unexpected internet success stories, with vast fellowships more likely to be seen shouting about Transformers or GI Joe declaring themselves “Bronies” and declaring that friendship is magic. This certainly works for online degrees, or any social media scene, where networking has become an essential, business strategy, and success story all in one. The more connections you have, the more likely you are to succeed, especially if you call it friendship instead of synergizing your crowd-web potentiality.

Scumbag Steve

Scumbag Steve is the embodiment of everything you never want to be. From the fecal color scheme to the douchebag attitude, massively amplified by balancing a hat at the exact sideways angle of a-hole, you just know he’s never done anything worthwhile. If he goes online it’s to shout homophobic slurs at people who beat him at videogames and misspell swearwords in the YouTube comments section. If he were to offer an online course, it would be in “You don’t want to be like this”-ship, and he absolutely hates online accounting degrees. Because he doesn’t want anyone keeping track of all the money he borrowed and never gave back.
