Excerpt from this article:

iPhone: CHIRP. Your neighbor put a free dining-room set out on the curb.

iPhone: CHIRP! There’s a new podcast that breaks down every episode of “Hart to Hart.”

iPhone: CHIRP!! It’s National Popsicle Appreciation Day and your cousin Frank’s birthday and we’re twelve minutes from Panera Bread.

Me (whispering): What is UP with you? I’m in an important meeting.

A Very British Response to Terror

Excerpt from this article:

These moments encapsulated something about Britain’s calm, defiant response to the threat of terror. Even as we face an increasing number of attacks, we are learning to cope with grief, loss and violence in our own way…

In the face of this, we’re choosing vigilance, calm and just a little bit of humor. And any fear projected on to us will be met with a very British response: Sarcasm.

…A New York Times headline that said that London was “reeling” from the Manchester attack also became the subject of British Twitter’s wrath. Brits turned #ThingsThatLeaveBritainReeling into a hashtag that started to trend higher than the news of the attack itself.

Welcome to Twitter city: is there no limit to Jakarta’s social media obsession?

The meme picturing Donald Trump with cult leader Dimas Kanjeng.

Excerpt from this article (thanks again Paul for the link!):

With more Muslims than any other nation in the world, you might imagine Indonesians would be fearful, or at least dismayed, about the victory of a man who has threatened to ban all Muslims from entering America.

Instead, as it was becoming clear on election night that Donald Trump would be the next US president, Jakhumourartans had already started flooding social networks with satirical memes and comic relief.

One viral joke showed Trump planting a kiss on the cheek of Dimas Kanjeng, a cult leader who claims he can multiply banknotes with his mind and was recently arrested on suspicion of murder.

In a developing country prone to natural and manmade disasters alike, where everything from roads to institutions are often broken and politicians rarely keep their promises, Indonesians have adopted a pragmatic willingness to adapt – and, above all, to see the funny side of things.

The predilection for humour has led to an equally ubiquitous habit: an obsession with social media. There are about 80 million social media users in Indonesia, and the country is among the biggest users of Facebook and Twitter worldwide.
