The rat is her husband trying to save her


ItchyWash1700

We need to label rat as number 5


hnxmn

That or just move the 4 onto the rat. Either or could make for some decent r/comedynecromancy material


Jumpy-Aide-901

It’s a wind up cat toy. See the key.


Muldrotha69

I think it’s a rat but you could be right


Cyberzombie

Still could be the husband.


[deleted]

The rat is her husband?! That dirty rat...


LostnFoundAgainAgain

I thought it was number 4 encouraging the rat to push her.


Nikiplay2f4u

You know how old this is it's from before the internet and Facebook my parents have books from this artist and this Image was in one of them


MrB-S

Bet the original didn't have those pointless numbers.


Nikiplay2f4u

It just said guess the husband or some shit


rievei

whats the book called?


Nikiplay2f4u

I don't remember but the artist is called "ulli Stein" if I remember correctly he dose a lot of joke stuff like this calenders and mugs too


Makikaze

He died last year iirc

thank you!


That_Child22

Is that the “beyond the far side” series? I have a couple of them and the art style is quite similar


GoshPants

No, the Far Side comics were (are?) done by Gary Larson. This is actually a totally different style. I see some similarity in the way the woman is drawn with the Far Side, but I think that's probably just the artist trying to make the middle-aged woman look like a chonker. Larson makes everyone a chonker. Take a look at https://www.thefarside.com/ for a good time. Gary Larson had a goofy sense of humor, but I like it a ton! Edit: eh, I guess the dudes are looking a little hefty as well, but even with that, it's still a super different art style, let alone joke style. I don't remember any Far Side comics that were like "wife bad, kill" but I could just not be remembering correctly.


Schootingstarr

The cartoonists name was Uli Stein. He also makes everyone fat


BlindMuffin

No way would Gary Larson would ever make a lame unoriginal joke like this


Danamite85

Yeah no dissin my man Gary. His shit is still funny imo. Original jokes, not just boomer humor.


plz-ignore

Honestly, if you ignore all the text and numbers that were added on later, the joke in the picture alone by the original artist is pretty original. Only worth a quick smirk, and a very dark joke, but the original punchline isn't "wife bad". It's "hey, look everyone wants to save he-- oh. Oh NO." It's meant to mess with your expectations, not support the death of your marriage. Like I said, just pretend the numbers and text aren't there. There is literally no indication in the picture any of the people know each other.


BlindMuffin

Unfortunately in this case the text was always part of the comic, not added by someone else. The joke is the unoriginal "I hate my wife". The numbers were added later.


That_Child22

Ah thanks for clearing it up. I don’t think I’ve seen one in while but yeah - Mr Larson was hilarious. It gets difficult to distinguish most Facebook memes since they all look alike, and you kind of become tone deaf to the art styles. I just remember big noses and big people. I look at it now and I can definitely see the difference. Mad respect for knowing all that stuff too


GoshPants

Nah, you're good, dude. It's just been a family favorite my whole life, so I am pretty ok at recognizing when something isn't Far Side haha.


JeanAdAstra

Artist? I wouldn't go that far!


Nikiplay2f4u

And why would that be


Ok-Salad-4711

Does everyone over 50 lowkey hate their spouses


TopMindOfR3ddit

They're not even lowkey about it. Like, fuck just die already


Forlorn_Cyborg

My Aunt's client just died at 105 lmao.


redditsucks56

damn they must have died cursing others


Forlorn_Cyborg

They died in their money


[deleted]

Have you heard stories of how people used to meet their spouses? "I fell down the stairs at a bar and I felt a stranger catch me. I looked up and there he was!" as if being on a staircase at the same time is the foundation for a healthy relationship. Dating apps can be more soul crushing than job applications but, by sheer force of numbers, you're gonna find a good fit eventually.

onanopenfire

Haven't you ever viewed a close friend differently after being their roommate for like a year and witnessing their gross, annoying habits and just generally the way they live day after day? I'd imagine being married to someone for 20 years is like that times, well, 20.


LoveLaughGFY

I’m 43. I love my wife. She loves me. She don’t even be sharing “husband oaf” memes. Fuck I can’t stand boomers.


[deleted]

Because they were taught that getting married is what you’re suppose to do so they did it and then found out it’s not for everyone.


Foreign_Rock6944

No, just the ones that post these garbage “memes”.


brakiri

Us youngens don't know what its like to eat avocado toast with the same person everyday for 30+ years. "Honey, you sent me this meme thirty-five years ago."

beefstewforyou

They never learned what a divorce is.


mangobattlefruit

So for a long, long time prior to the last 50 years ago pressure to get married both from family and society was huge, soooo... a lot of people married people they didn't love. Especially for women, they had to be married before they were 25 so many women basically went with the first guy who asked them. 7 years later, they realize they don't even like the person they are married too. And divorce before the 50's was very taboo, that was a great sin.


JapaneseStudentHaru

Marry young and never divorce Christianity culture


[deleted]

It's really weird, I'm constantly running into that boomer attitude like "working late to get some time away from the family". I rather get home early to hang out with my wife, I don't want to be here


LILSKRAMP

Yeah like i get that everyone needs some alone time but the “ole ball & chain” shtick is sooo constant with a lot of boomers its actually kind of disturbing and must be fucking exhausting


local_eclectic

Because boomer men thought they were getting a domestic slave, and they were severely disappointed when they realized they'd married a real person with their own needs and motivations who also had a legal right to their assets.

KingRasha

Oh! Let me try. #SOCIETAL PRESSURES AND MY OWN POOR DECISIONS HAVE CORNERED ME INTO A MARRIAGE THAT I AM INCAPABLE OF BEING EMOTIONALLY INVESTED IN AS GENERATIONS OF JADED AUTHORITY FIGURES HAVE LEFT ME WITH AN INABILITY TO PROPERLY PROCESS EMOTION OR BUILD HEALTHY AND MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS. ANYWAY, HERE'S A COMIC STRIP THAT CONFIRMS MY BIASES AND DISTRACTS ME FROM HAVING TO FACE MY SHAM OF A MARRIAGE. I mean, who even has a fulfilling marriage and actually loves their spouse?


chesspiece69

Well lucky you mine didn’t


BillyYumYumTwo-byTwo

Men: propose to a woman. Get her to do the majority of the emotional labor, most of the housework even if the work the same hours. Live longer when married than when single while women don’t live as long when married compared to single. Also men: I HATE MY WIFE MY LIFE IS SO MUCH WORSE (Obligatory Hashtag not all men... but these stupid boomer humor creators)

kittyidiot

How can you even joke about this? How can you think about your spouse killing themselves without feeling your stomach drop? Let alone urging them to do it? Holy shit this is *disgusting.* Suicide isn't fucking funny.


Chimpski95

Calm your tits bud keep scrolling if you don't like it


kittyidiot

You realize the subreddit is called **terrible**facebookmemes right? Because they're bad?


Chimpski95

Yeah I did and I know their bad in some people's eyes but there's no need to get mad on the internet it's not going to change anything


kittyidiot

Right, repress emotions. Don't feel anything. I'm allowed to speak my mind as much as you are. My friend's spouse OD'd while me and my fiance were in the house. I suppose you have never seen something like it, but it's not something to make fun of. Suicide isn't funny and I'm allowed to say so. This sub is for criticizing or making fun of terrible Facebook memes. If you don't like what I have to say, just keep scrolling, hm?


Chimpski95

Bro I'm just trying to help you stay out of big blow ups on the internet and I don't give one about your friends spouse you can say what you want but people aren't going to change something because you don't like it now this is all I have to say and I have a great life


Chimpski95

And I've watched people die before its not something new to me


Benlennn

You must be crazy uptight to not be able to handle dark humor.


kittyidiot

No, I just have respect for serious subjects. I'm a very lighthearted person until you start joking about extreme subjects that leave victims seriously damaged. So rape, suicide, etc is a no. Racism and homophobia are also a no but those are never jokes, just phobia masked as jokes. I just consider the people around me who may have been affected by serious matters such as that and me not knowing. You never know what someone's gone through.


Benlennn

If you let a joke effect you that much then that's your issue and you need to seek counceling. I had a family member die of cancer a few years back but my life doesn't unravel if I hear a dark cancer joke. People are so mentally weak that they let the humor from a comedian or a meme wreck their entire life. And this is coming from someone who isn't mentally strong. I have anxiety and some depression but this humor is just jokes. If you let them effect you so much then your mentality is the problem.


kittyidiot

It's not about me, it's about respecting other people. Maybe read what I said before using an irrelevant response. I'm allowed to not like jokes. It doesn't hurt you.


Benlennn

Then those people are the problem and should seek counceling. Better?


kittyidiot

Again, it doesn't hurt you for people to be sensitive to jokes. People cope and heal differently. Make jokes like that all you like, but don't be butthurt when people don't like them
