Controversial Thursday: My first internet meme

I was originally going to be talking about something else but this was too good to pass up...This happened by accident yesterday.  Wifey wanted a pic of the Mexican Flag and some Universal Monsters around it to commerate the weekend in Mexico.  I couldn´t find zilch.  But I came across a pic on Google that she and I kinda liked so I posted it with our promotion.

It is not our cafe´s Dracula but another one somewhere else.  Well apparantly the tongueified person in the pic found out he was on Monster Cafe Saltillo´s Facebook page and didn´t like it.  Claims I am trying to promote him at the cafe etc.  WHAT?  Says how dare I have a pic of him representing Monster Cafe.  I explained to him that it is just a pic I found on Google with Dracula in it, that I don´t  really need ANYONE´S  permission to post a pic on Facebook.  I made no claims with the picture.The little twerp actually demanded money if I continued to use his likeness.  As the Rock says ¨Who in the blue hell are you?¨ I mean hell Dracula looks like Adam Sandler from Opera Man.
It was a one time thing of a pic I just happened to pick at random and this guy goes off on me even in private emails. I mean, If I wanted to put a pic of a one eyed Episcopalian Kangaroo I would do it!  I can choose any photo I want on Facebook!  He reminded me of Andy Kaufman telling Jerry Lawler not to use his image because his face MAKES money and doesn´t need to be on a rinky dink show like Lawler´s Wrasslin program.
If you have seen I´m from Hollywood featuring the greatest wrestling feud of all time you KNOW what I am talking about.
Go to the 7:54 minute mark and you will see what I mean.
 
 
Anyway another guy chimed in named Foley...Thought it might be Mick Foley but alas it wasn´t.  He was saying the same kinds of things.  So I told em that the internet is fair game.  If they didn´t want their photo used then erase it from the internet.  So I created my own meme..



So many people hit the like button it was unbelievable!  I hope all my customers come in and take a pic in a pose like him and post it all over Facebook!

    1. Thanks my man! If he had come at me with a little humility and asked nicely for me to take down his photo that he felt uncomfortable etc. I probably would have. But to come out swinging like he did...

  4. Dracula = Opera Man. BWAHAHAHAHA!!! That was fucking hilarious.

    I'm glad this tale had a happy ending. Usually when I read these types of stories they end with lawsuits or epic social media battles that are embarrassing and regrettable for all involved, not with d-bags getting owned and awesome memes being born. Good for you!
