Best-looking pet

Five memes you need to stop using
Internet memes — the contagious inexplicable trends that make people post pictures of cats with quotes or bad puns related to basketball star Jeremy Lin — are getting, well, linsane. Visit your Facebook profile on any given day, and instead of getting flooded with the usual invitations to events you won’t attend or photos of babies you don’t care about, you will be welcomed by lincredible posts lin your face that will be repeated to linfinity. The weird thing is that, after a while, you’ll understand the meme — a true sign that you’re spending way too much time online — and you will attempt to use it. This is when your friends will kindly tell you that the meme has gotten old and bothersome. Your linability to linguistically linclude and linundate your friends with the same nonsense will bother you. But fear not. Though you won’t be able to get rid of headlines that start with “Lin” for the time being, there are other memes that come and go. You must resist the urge to repost them because you think they’re funny. Remember that the moment you post them is the very moment the thing stopped being funny. Your friends will make sure to remind you of that. As a service to the community, and because we don’t feel like writing anything of real substance, we hereby provid you with a handy list of recent memes that have most likely inundated your online space (If you’ve never been online, don’t start now. It’s filled with cats, anyway). • Pictures of people saying things. This is the practice of having nothing original to say, so it consists of posting an image that involves an overly long quote with a photo of the person who said the quote. This image will be initially posted by someone and reposted by one of your friends. Then another friend will post a constructive comment — like, “LOLZ. Totally stealing this :D” — and then said friend will proceed to post it on his or her wall, ensuring that the same image appears See Five, page E5

Lots of dogs, but cat takes main prize

On the Web
A video feature, eight slideshows featuring the winners and most sumbissions and a few more surprises are available at http://www.dailyfreeman.com The process: As in the past, finalists were chosen for originality, spontaneity, beauty and photo quality. After a comprehensive sorting process by intern Celia Seupel, judges picked three entries in each category. The best three positions were tallied from those votes. The Freeman’s Paul Kirby was recruited at the last minute to break tied entries. Although most entries were acceptable, a large number were disqualified for not conforming to established rules. Judges for the contest this year were Rachel Steres, Paula Mitchell, Dwayne Kroohs, Nick Henderson and Ivan Lajara. Tie breaker was Paul Kirby. Once again, the Freeman thanks you for your participation. Send an email to life@freemanonline.com with comments or suggestions.

By IVAN LAJARA Life Editor OGS were the big winners of the Freeman’s pet photo contest this year, as hundreds of entries flooded the Freeman’s mailbox and servers. But the coveted top prize went to a cat. As a sign of the times, this year’s digital entries far outnumbered the mailed submissions. Many came via mobile devices. Save for a handful of entries, all submissions this year — close to 400— were cats and dogs. Many of these animals were rescued. With that comes the idea of rescuing animals and giving them caring homes. You can contact your local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Ulster at (845) 3315377 and (845) 4527722 in Dutchess County. The Columbia-Greene Humane Society can be contacted at (518) Photos provided Jesse the tortoiseshell cat, owned by Ashley Drewes of Saugerties, is this year’s winner in the 828-6044.

More information is also available online at www. aspca.org. The Ulster SPCA also is offering a new volunteer training seminar on March 8 at 5 p.m. at its facilities on 20 Wiedy Road in Kingston. The agency is seeking volunteers to care for the animals and support fundraising efforts. At this training session, participants will find out what they can do to help. Call (845) 331-5377, ext. 210 or send an email to info@ucspca.org for more information. The agency also is promoting Spay/Neuter Awarness month during February.

Telltale burns prove smoker hasn’t cleaned up his act
DEAR ABBY: “Dwayne,” my boyfriend of eight years, insists on smoking in his bedroom. In our last apartment he’d fall asleep with a lit cigarette and ended up burning holes in our couch, numerous blankets and pillows as well as the carpet. When we moved, Dwayne assured me he had stopped, but a month ago I noticed his blanket and mattress have burn holes and so does the carpet by his bed. We live together with our 6-year-old son and, needless to say, I’m scared to death Dwayne will burn this place down. I have talked to him about it numerous times. All he does is yell and say it won’t happen because cigarettes are “safer now.” I have discussed this with our landlord to no avail. I thought about calling social services, but I don’t want to get him

in trouble. I could really use some good advice. -SCARED FOR MY LIFE IN MILWAUKEE DEAR SCARED: Because Dwayne is unwilling to be more responsible, it’s time to consider your son’s safety and your own. Your boyfriend is not only addicted to tobacco, he is also misguided. If cigarettes were “safer now” there wouldn’t be burn holes in his bedding and the area surrounding where he sleeps. If moving isn’t feasible, at least make sure there are working smoke detectors in your apartment and an extra

Frankly, it would be healthier for you and the boy if Dwayne didn’t smoke at all in your apartment because the Environmental Protection Agency has classified secondhand smoke as a Group A carcinogen. To verify this, and get further information, contact the American Cancer Society (800-227-2345) or the American Heart Association (800-242-8721). DEAR ABBY: My husband died 13 years ago. Since then I have pretty much lost everything, except the grief. Recently it occurred to me that I have some photographs his siblings and nieces might like copies of. I don’t want them to know where I live -- in a battered old trailer - because I’m ashamed. They are all well-to-do and never seemed to like me. Continued from page E1 on your wall again.

No one has spoken to me since my husband’s death. I don’t want it to seem like I’m expecting anything in return because I’m not, nor do I want to see them socially. I know I don’t fit in with them. I’d just like to do something nice since we all loved him. From experience I think they’ll find some way to misinterpret or misunderstand the gesture. I’ll be hurt and, added to the depression and grief, I don’t think I could handle it. What do you advise? -- MISSING MY MAN IN CALIFORNIA DEAR MISSING YOUR MAN: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your husband. You have given me four valid reasons not to reach out to your husband’s family, the most important of which is that if you get another round

of rejection from them it will crush you. That’s why I advise against it. Because they haven’t spoken to you or included you in 13 years, on top of the fact you never felt accepted in the first place (your words) -- the healthy thing for you to do is to keep your distance. However, because in all this time you have been unable to finish your grieving process, I urge you to consider grief counseling. DEAR ABBY: We recently celebrated the milestone birthday of a dear friend with a party. In honor of the occasion we presented her with a very nice bracelet with various fabricated gemstones set in a nice silver setting. As she was identifying the names of the stones, I blurted out that they “weren’t real” because I didn’t want her thinking we

were trying to pass them off as the real thing. Now I’m afraid I might have cheapened our gift - although believe me, her bracelet was not cheap. I feel like an idiot. Should I try to fix this mess or just let it be? - FOOT IN MOUTH IN THE SOUTHWEST DEAR FOOT IN MOUTH: I think enough has already been said. Whether the stones in the bracelet were natural or man-made, the thought behind the gift was genuine.

Five memes you need to stop using
“Stuff people say about stuff people say” and “stuff nobody says” videos. You probably thought these were all silly and infantile, until you saw the one about your profession and/or hobby and thought it was hilarious, posted it on Facebook and then complained that people just don’t understand knitters (cats do, but for different reasons). Also, the S-word in the title, for the record, is not “stuff.” • “What People Think I Do” images: These are posts consisting of six images that try to illustrate how different people view a specific profession, be it poets, artists, librarians and all those other unemployed people who now spend their time creating “What People Think I Do” images and clicking on cows. • Linsanity. This is the practice of trying to add ‘Lin’ to every word in the dictionary even if everyone’s tired of it already. It also is a candidate for the Word of the Year, according to the American Dialect Society. But they have linguists, so they’re biased. • Publicly complaining about memes. If there is something more annoying than “What People Think I Do” images it is people who complain incessantly about them -- with “What People Think I Do” images, which is exactly what we did. Surprisingly, we were told people are getting tired of this already. But we’re unfazed, as we are busy and important. Now, if you excuse us, we have some cows that need to be clicked on.
