In case you missed it, Clint Eastwood spoke at the Republican National Convention last night, and in so doing, started a new meme called "Eastwooding." As part of his speech, he spoke to an empty chair as  if President Obama was sitting there. He asked it questions, then responded as if the chair was answering back. It was at times, funny, and at times, weird. But the good news is, it started a new meme. And if there's one thing I like, it's a good meme. I've been giggling all day as my Twitter feed has been full of funny pictures stemming from this human to chair RNC conversation.

Here are some of my favorites so far:


Double meme. I like it. source


Am I easily amused? Yes, no doubt about it. But it's nice to find something funny in politics these days since for the most part it's been killing my soul. The difference between Facebook and Twitter (at least, in my experience) is that Facebook political posts make me want to unfriend the known universe, whereas twitter provides me with pictures of a bird Eastwooding the crap out of a chair, and just like that, my soul is restored.

Wow Clint Eastwood must have real issues with President Obama, because that is Gestalt Empty Chair technique. So weird to do that! I love reading all your posts but especially you political posts!

"twitter provides me with pictures of a bird Eastwooding the crap out of a chair" - HA!!!! These are some seriously hilarious pictures! Thanks, Mr. Eastwood, for not only being a part of Back to the Future III, but now for Eastwooding, too!

Hey, that's my parrot! He DID Eastwood the crap out of that chair, giving it many politically astute zingers like "Hi!" and "nite-nite"! And he still made more sense than poor Clint.
