- Bob Ross - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Robert Norman "Bob" Ross (October 29, 1942 – July 4, 1995) was an American painter, art instructor, and television host. He is best known as the creator and host of The Joy of Painting, a television program that has appeared for more than a decade
Who Is Bob Ross?
Before there was The Most Interesting Man In The World, there was Bob Ross! As a kid at home on a sick day, watching PBS, Bob Ross would teach you how to oil paint while dropping all kinds of juicy life lessons and nuggets on you to pass the day blowing your nose, taking your temperature and coughing up phlegm.
The show made painting look so easy and simple. I remember watching it and never once picked up a brush, but then when you find yourself in an art class years later you go immediately to happy trees and clouds...
"What did Bob Ross do?" You'd ask yourself. "How did he make those tress again?"
He was only 52 when he died way too soon from lymphoma but he managed to leave a feel good legacy that will be remembered by adult kids of the 70's and 80's. And even still his show is still experienced by kids and adults today on Public Television and YouTube.
God bless him I say!!!
My cousin's wife Liz remembers Bob this way...
"...the happy accident of finding him while channel surfing. What started out as mindless remote control clicking turned into enjoying a magic show as I watched Bob Ross create happy little trees, clouds, rivers, mountains. His voice is so soothing and he just makes me feel calm. I have loved Bob Ross since I was a little girl. Bob Ross is better than Prozac!"
At the end here, I'd love to hear from you about your memories of Bob Ross
What is a meme?
Urban dictionary puts is like this:
"an idea, belief or belief system, or pattern of behavior that spreads throughout a culture either vertically by cultural inheritance (as by parents to children) or horizontally by cultural acquisition (as by peers, information media, and entertainment media)"
Work for you? Works for me. Essentially, a meme is a viral running gag... some are ridiculous, others priceless, others just gay... not that there's anything wrong with that! See what I just did there?
So, the meme with Bob Ross is well, for some simply brilliant... others, are, like McKayla not impressed and prefer the more standard like Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka or the Success Kid.
But yeah, that's a meme....
WHILE ALL OF THESE PICTURES BELOW WILL BE FUNNY, NOT ALL ARE "APPROPRIATE" OR "SAFE FOR WORK"
YOU'VE BEEN WARNED, SCROLL AT YOUR OWN RISK OF BEING OFFENDED...
Below each portrait will be my 2 cents from the peanut gallery...
Han "Bob Ross" Solo
Star Wars fans and Bob Ross lovers come together for beautiful LOL moment! Assuming we plugged in additional Star Wars themed Bob Ross memes we can have happy little Jawas, happy little Ewoks, happy little droids...
Also, the Yoda potential is virtually unlimited, "mistakes there are not; happy accidents we just have."
And oh what fun can we have with Tatooine and Yavin landscapes!
Should we feel the urge to explore the Dark Side of the Force, it's is perfect simply because... well, who wouldn't make a better Sith Lord than Darth Ross?
Quitting while I'm ahead...
Bob "This is SPARTA" Ross
King Leonidas is either rolling in his grave or happily rejoicing with what has to be, ultimately Zach Snyder's greatest compliment!
Imitation is the best form of flattery and while Zach does have The Man of Steel coming up I can only assume he still feels guilty for Sucker Punch and by getting a 300 Bob Ross combo meme is the universe's way of giving him a second chance.
Jack "Bob Ross" Dawson
As I mentioned earlier, you we're warned... yet somehow, I couldn't help myself. The 5th grader in me won this battle.
C'mon, it's funny and you know it!
Let your inner Bevis flow and enjoy this juvenile moment with me!
Ghostbusters Two Bob Ross
Any fan of the Ghostbusters movies will appreciate this simple stroke of brilliance and hilarity. A big fat kudos to whoever conceived this one and I can only imagine the mental state required to marry these two up into this hilarious meme.
My guess is there was also Cap't Crunch involved, but that's just pure speculation on my part... Cottonmouth is an absolute certainty!
The Most Interesting Bob Ross In The World
Chuck Norris once asked him to paint him doing a wheelie on a unicycle...
His blood was used to make the color Alizarin Crimson...
His Afro has had more happy accidents then most people ever will...
He once called Picaso a little bitch and got away with it...
He is, the most interesting painter in the world!
Lego Bob Ross
I'd say I saved the best for last, but there really is no best one here or order to it all. They are all sheer comedy in my book and each one brought a real laugh out loud when discovered.
Lego Bob Ross though is more brilliant than funny I think. I mean what doesn't go well with Lego?
Once there was a Lego Harry Potter, Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones, I knew nothing from childhood was truly safe or sacred anymore and so when you see the Lego Bob Ross, it all just makes perfect since; don't you think?
Take the poll below though I want to hear from you. Leave your why's in the comment section and have fun with it. Did I miss one? Let me know!
