The ‘Arman in New York’ on a couch Meme is the only Meme you need this Summer

So I totally had a serious post planned for today. I’ve been receiving a fair few emails and questions regarding blog growth, monetisation etc and was intending on tackling that today.

However, over the weekend my friend linked me to this gem of a BuzzFeed piece titled ‘The “New York” On A Bed Meme Is The Only Meme You Need This Summer.’ 


After giggling like a two year old, sharing it all over Facebook and giggling like a two year old again, I realised so many other situations which deserved that meme- Especially in my personal life and recent events in New York City. 

So friends, let’s rephrase that.

    1. Oh yes, #3. This is one of the most ridiculous / leave-me-speechless/loose faith in humanity parts of the blog world. What do those commenters think? That nobody will notice they didn’t read the post? Actually, I wrote a whole post about commenting some time ago because it’s an important but apparently not self-explanatory part of blogging.
      And re: #20: Hey, [Ar]man up and consider it a glimpse into what life as a woman is like . Not.

    2. I am crying! Like really literally spilling tears of laughter!

      #17! Yes, so damn weird! And I thought of you and your Instagems the other day when I saw someone referring to his fruit only ‘birthday cake’ as low carb!

      Additions from my life: When you buy a snack bar and after the first bite think it’s actually a dog biscuit!
      When you buy a train ticket only to realize there’s no service on your line!
      When you wait to the last minute to print something important and the printer just decides to decline the service!

    3. Well illustrated argument. #3….#bloggerproblems. The Kardashian thing and the lack of geographical awareness… well, we do have a show called “are you smarter than a 5th grader” for a reason.

    4. OMG yes, to ALL! and love the VOGUE ebook. haha. The soy sauce cracks me. Same with spelt bread, right?
      p.s i’ve had brands call me cooter crunch, so it could be worse. LOL!

    5. LOL Yesssss. Hey BIG BOY! This was too funny. I would add when you get emails from companies asking for partnerships that have NOTHING to do with your blog. Someone wanted me to collaborate on a post on prom dresses. Yeah, I’m 30 years old…

    6. BIG BOY YOU ARE SO FUNNY. I’m still LOLing.. actually ROFLing.. Arman meme for too many abbreves that 99% of i dont understand (tbh imo smh idk).

      AND I LOVE COUCHES.. i didn’t read any of the text but dang i need new sunglasses. 😉

    7. This is perfect! That face is spot on for all these situations. I especially like the nod to quest bars and the #cheat hashtag…yeah, NO. Not a cheat. Thanks for making me laugh this morning!

    8. Hahaha…I’m totally cracking up at this post this morning, Arman! But did you seriously get an email from a brand that addressed you as “Big Boy”? That’s more than a little creepy. I hope you decided to work with them!

    9. If I had a nickel for every time someone posts a pic of Greek yogurt with berries as #CheatClean, I would be one rich lady. And I’d invite you to hang out on my yacht and take selfies. Just sayin’. I feel you on the Quest Bar thing. ahhaha And I’ve never even tried a Quest Bar. Hilarious post.
