    Now that embedding images isn’t a herculean task requiring a master’s degree in computer science, I figured we ought to finally have one of these on a site where such esoteric bullshit would be welcome.

    I’ll start, because that’s how this sort of thread always works. Keep up.

    (My lookalike font is a bolded, mildly blurred Courier New, in case anyone wants to run with this template. The minor blur helps the added text look less conspicuously sharper than the original image.)

    This might have been my favourite from recent years.

    Has my last post not made it past the spam filter? Maybe it’s because I included a link?

    I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to plug Escape Pod here without vainly creating a topic for it.

    The eternal mystery of what this forum considers spam continues. Fixed.

    Also, feel free to create a new thread for Escape Pod if you wish!

    I post to Escape Pod anyway. You’ll see my Norman meme and others there. It’s the ONLY good FB RD group I’ve ever been a part of. All others, without exception, suck ass and for the same reasons.

    Escape Pod is a splinter faction of the original Smegposting, one of those stereotypically shitty FB fan groups that’s entirely just people posting quote JPEGs that have been recompressed so many times you can barely read them. And they’d dogpile you and call you a fake fan if you had the BALLS to suggest Pete Part 2 is any less good than Marooned (that’s not hypothetical, that happened to me), or, idk, try to start a discussion about the show with more depth than “Would anyone like any toast?” And every single day, without fail, at least several people posted the SMEG toaster or fridge, convinced they’d discovered a new thing.

    I remember when the lovely Jason Smedley – who I encourage to correct me if I’m wrong – used to run the original Smegposting, under which it was thriving, but he got couped by another, stupider admin with bad taste (everything went downhill almost immediately) and had to start Smegposting: Escape Pod for all the people who actually cared about making creative shitposts. I’m glad I noticed at the time because I’m pretty sure they banned him and everyone else who tried to plug the new group.

    I think you could safely sum up the entire vibe of OG Smegposting with a single image:

    My intent for this thread was to post memes you made yourself (i.e. the other image macro threads that have developed since posting images became actually reasonably convenient), so I think having a “here’s the best of Escape Pod or other RD memes you found” would be a good second thread.

    Yeah, that’s pretty much it. The group was crap (like most RD Facebook groups). Pictures of Smeg fridges or bananas make up most of the content. Then I noticed there was no admin so I took it over and built it up – then the original admin returned… apparently he’d been on a facebook ban. I gave him the group back and set up my own because it was easier than arguing about it.

    Anyway, here’s a meme.

    Unrelated tangent:

    My favorite part of Escape Pod though is that without fail, you post a meme about the new episodes and about fifteen people will comment “I’VE SEEN EVERY EPISODE OF RED DWARF AND WHAT IS THIS FROM?” only to turn out they haven’t seen anything past Series 8 / Back to Earth because streaming services always cut off one of those two and they have no reasonable clue that the show didn’t stop there. God only knows how you can have the rights to BtE but NOT be able to get them for Series 10 / 11 / etc.

    The upside is I get to tell people that they’re missing most of the best episodes made since the first six series and then they get to watch all that stuff for the first time.

    Holy shit, I’d never noticed how many people are called Frank in RD.

    Not to mention Lister’s cat.

    Whose name was Eric right up until the readthrough according to that script you got. What on earth could’ve made Doug change it to yet another Frank?

    Eric was the man they ate in Tikka to Ride, maybe Doug thought having two unrelated characters with the same name would be confusing.

    Maybe he’s going for the Armando Iannucci thing of doing something to excess til you reach the exact right amount. I reckon if we get another 12 Franks in Red Dwarf suddenly nobody will mind or even notice anymore.

    I think he just calls all these secondary characters Frank so it’s easier to remember.

    Franks for the memory.

    That pic won’t be seen on 95% of Red Dwarf Fans Facebook Groups, due to the movie not being called ‘DWYNE’.

    @Flap Jack – You need to post some of these in Escape Pod before I start stealing them :): https://www.facebook.com/groups/RD.EscapePod

    Facebook, eh? Hmm, I don’t know, seems like having people rating and reacting to your memes would spoil the magic.

    Are you saying you don’t like criticism Flap Jack?  Because boy have I got just the episode for you.
