Today’s big story is what memes were made for. Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, among others, are being indicted for bribing their children’s way into college. (Loughlin spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to get her daughter into the University of Southern California, which angers me, because that was my dream school—if I knew my mom only had to pay a half a million for me to go, I would have begged!)
Twitter is having a field day, of course, and I’ve been collecting the finest of the celebrity-based memes for your perusal.
First, let us look at the lovely tweets about our dear Aunt Becky. For those who may have forgotten, Lori Loughlin played Rebecca in Full House and so … of course, we’re having fun! Childhood nostalgia meets scandal.

Then came the Felicity Huffman memes …

When I decided to sleep in this morning, I had no idea one of the consequences would be, “all the good Felicity Huffman is getting arrested jokes would be tweeted already.”

And lest the menfolk be forgotten …
Note: this references Felicity Huffman’s “husband,” who is actor William H. Macy. It also references Lori Loughlin’s “husband,” who is the fashion designer Mossimo.
Why are the moms the only ones named in media reports? Asking out of genuine curiosity, but bet I know the answer. https://t.co/ZQKCsD0qx7

The Fargo memes are flying after actor William H. Macy was linked to a college admissions cheating scandal. https://t.co/uPlbNOhWy3

Pretty crazy that William H Macy has a good shot of getting arrested for something every single William H Macy character would get arrested for.

I can’t believe William H. Macy became accidentally embroiled in a ridiculous federal crime and it’s not in a Coen brothers movie

I’m sorry but I’m imagining William H Macy and Felicity Huffman having a lot of tight lipped conversations about this on the phone and just laughing to myself

My favorites among the meme group, however, are the tweets about both Huffman and Loughlin.
If only there was a succinct turn of phrase these kids could have used to inform their parents they were not desirous of their life path… https://t.co/cxOTDI5J1B

Please keep the memes coming. This is truly a special day on the Internet. What a time to be alive, as we learned how the already rich and privileged are afforded even more of a leg-up than they had before, illegally! Why not just fund and name a building on-campus in the traditional American way?
