And this is why I don't take them seriously.
Jalopnik Wants to Start a Car Meme
You can't "make" a meme. That is called an image macro
and yeah, there are a lot of other reasons to hate anything Gawker related. The fact that Jalopnik is somewhat related to Jezebel should be a good enough one.
Several times a month TCL has some thread hating (and occasionally loving) Jalopnik. You know the "editors" lurk on here, yah?
I can't take any type of "publication" as such seriously when they make up words; combinations to make an article appear more hipster and cutting-edge then it actually is. You get some 24-year-old fixie rider who reads "History's 10 worst cars" printed on Yahoo! News and voila, he's a car expert for Jalopnik. Obviously, a meme has more of an impacting meaning to someone of that age bracket and level automotive intelligence.
Notice the comments on Jalopnik today; you don't find actual knowledge anymore of the cars; technology, or historical reference. Why should the anti-car, pro-Keds age group care about reading something substantial about cars?
FWIW, Jack has made some spot-on critiques of the way Jalopnik operates:
