Do you find yourself googling what a VSCO girl is or do your teenagers cringe when you don’t use “Yeet” correctly in a sentence? Then we have the resource for you. This past Christmas, 16-year-old, L.E. Acuff, daughter of author and speaker Jon Acuff, gifted her dad a handmade guide to all things social media.
“It is the most amazing thing ever,” Jon Acuff wrote in an Instagram post about the gift. “She spent weeks making this and each page is funnier than the last.”
While Jon Acuff received the guide a few months ago, he only recently shared his epic gift on Instagram. He wrote, “The table of contents includes phrases I should know, memes I should know and even a special note about TikTok.” She thought of everything, even including an “About the Author” page.
L.E. Acuff created the guide to help her dad out with today’s popular slang and memes. She said that she wanted to make him a gift that was both useful as well as funny. She said, “Also, I felt like he needed to be educated on the current memes.”
One of the memes L.E. Acuff highlighted is the “Woman Yelling at a Cat” which features a screen capture of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members Taylor Armstrong and Kyle Richards followed by a picture of a confused-looking cat sitting behind a dinner plate. This meme took off last June and still remains popular.
If you need a refresher on the World Record Egg, JoJo Siwa or Peppa Pig, L.E. Acuff has you covered. Next to each topic, there is a detailed explanation.
L.E. Acuff tried to encompass memes that she felt were important and popular but also funny, such as the Area 51 memes. She liked that she could find so many high quality variations.
As for Jon Acuff, one of his favorite memes is the video of the “Calm Down” lady simply because she has crazy eyes!
