    Wenn man dieses Meme (oder jedes andere) begreifen möchte, sollte man sich nicht bei Flickr umschauen.
    Die Show findet (wie üblich) auf 4chan, Reddit und 9gag statt.
    Übrigens: Wer übersetzt "ridculously" mit "verdammt" ? Gibt es da einen einleuchtenden Grund für?
    Erika Fuchs (ntroP) - 12.04.2012 13:37 Uhr
    ridiculous adj. ; irrwitzig, lächerlich, ridikül.
    Hätte man das meme "damn" oder "fu*****" "photogenic guy" benannt, sicherlich..
    In diesem Falle allerdings wäre "absurd" die bessere Wahl gewesen, wenn man schon dem Durchschnittsleser nicht mehr zutraut zwei Adjektive auf einmal zu begreifen.

    Zitat: "Übrigens: Wer übersetzt "ridculously" mit "verdammt" ? Gibt es da einen einleuchtenden Grund für? " ? Zitatende.
    Der Grund dafür ist, dass es sich um die zutreffende Übersetzung handelt. (end)

    If the interest in this photo continues to hold stead into the next year I'm excited to think about the kinds of things I'll be seeing at the next bridge run!

    Hey @Will King! I took the picture of Mr. Ridiculously Photogenic Asian guy above. The picture seems to have turned into a meme in it's own right. I was browsing online, and, weirdly enough, somebody had rendered it (by hand) as an oil painting.

    Go figure :P

    Amazingly enough I coincidentally snapped a photo of the woman running next to him in the original as well:
