“What People Think I Do / What I Really Do” started on February 2nd of this year when Garnet Hertz posted the image above to summarize the stereotypes about his career as a contemporary artist. Others followed suit with similar image macros about the generalizations and dull reality of their own jobs, hobbies, and groups. We learned a lot from this series. For example, we learned there are several self-described graphic designers and artists who make hideously-designed versions of this meme. (We’ve left their incompetent work out of the gallery below.) It’s also fitting that producers and strip club disc jockeys both herd cats for a living.

But, most importantly, we learned what Bill Cosby thinks he does, and you can to once you’ve viewed the slideshow. All pictures via Know Your Meme unless otherwise noted.

When not writing for Uproxx, Caleb likes to volunteer at the legless cat shelter and photoshop the Babadook into all of his family photos. He once resolved the question “To be or not to be?” through the clever use of General Semantics. Your mom thinks you could be more like him if you only applied yourself.
