Mike Pannone Was Used In A Meme And Drama Ensued

OMG people lost their damn minds over this:

Instagrammer Ohio2A posted the meme, I thought the caption + picture was funny so I reposted it as I often do.  People then proceeded to have a meltdown because the person pictured is Mike Pannone.   Once I was put onto that name, I still had no idea who that was.  Did the name sound vaguely familiar?  Sure, but I have a lot of interests spanning across multiple industries and I didn’t recognize the face.  It’s a real shame actually, that I don’t have the brain capacity nor the reference picture rolodex built to keep up on how 360 degrees of the face of everyone whose ever done anything notable looks at this current moment in time, linked to their credentials.  Maybe I could build an app or something to provide pre-meme post/repost facial recognition and credential scanning, which would then in turn use a series of complex algorithms to calculate potential butthurt and potential viral exposure.  As far as I know Mike’s not putting out derpy, sensational, or troll bait YouTube videos, so that would explain why he’s not on my radar.

If you made popcorn and want to scroll comments:

If anyone cares, Mike Pannone himself commented on my Facebook post.  The white knights can rest easy that Mike doesn’t give a shit about the meme:

Thoughts?  Seeing the reaction, this really makes me want to make a meme up of my own… where I pretend I don’t know who Larry Vickers, Colion Noir, or maybe John Browning is.
