Rime of the Ancient Mariner Meme
This meme is based on “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. I was inspired by the mariner’s encounter with the random wedding guest that he bombarded with his tale of sea ghosts. The meme’s origins are unknown, but first appeared on tumblr. The statement was usually used to be sarcastic to general criticism, but I felt that it fit with the wedding guest’s situation. In this case he really did come out to have a good time and was “attacked” by a crazy old mariner.
