Condescending Wonka

I love the internet. It's the only place where you can find ridiculous videos about double rainbows, auto-tuned versions of videos about double rainbows, and other such nonsense. It's also the birth place of brilliant memes, one of which I've taken particular fancy to: Condescending Wonka. I won't go into the history of the Condescending Wonka meme because, really, who gives a shit? All you need to know is that it consists of a snapshot of Gene Wilder from the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory:

with a delightfully condescending statement layered upon it:

Now, some may poo-poo sarcasm and condescension as being easy go-tos when it comes to comedy, but a well-timed (in this case, well-placed) sarcastic remark gets me LOL-ing every time. So I decided to create a few of my own. They're probably not as good as the ones already floating around out in cyberspace, but they made me laugh. That's all that matters. Without further ado...(I have to hyper-link since Quick Meme won't let me copy/paste. Le sigh...)

If you decide to leave a comment, let's keep it in the spirit of condescension and sarcasm and model it after the Condescending Wonka statements, shall we? 


  1. LOL @ all of them, BWAHAH @ the Catholic one.

  2. i love it! You had me at "i love the internet". ...le sigh... how do you find this most random, yet amazing things? i think i needed to be included in your research. ya' know... in the name of educational development & intellectual gain.

  3. @Kristina Haha! I've seen it around, like on Facebook, etc., the most recent sighting being here: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/badcatholic/2012/04/planned-parenthoods-40-days-of-prayer.html

    So I just googled it and voila! Now I am addicted. :-)
