The young people today like memes. What is a meme? I think it's a picture with big white words on it, John.  Kids, look at these cool memes brought to you by FrackFeed, a new website created by North Texans For Natural Gas.  Obama's interior secretary is definitely going to go viral. Now here is a King of the Hill reference, for some reason. 

And a comparison between Denton and Dr. Evil.

And here is an irreverent take on some science you've been hearing about. 

This makes sense, because Environmental Health Perspectives is actually just a naked hippie's blog. 

FrackFeed is not producing enough content in its "Listicles" section. There are only three, and one of them rebuts the "Top 5 Most Unsupported Things Celebrities Have Ever Said about Fracking" with nothing but animated GIFs. The kids today, they speak through GIFs now. 

In the "Quizzes" section, the North Texans For Natural Gas use images of Modern Family characters to lull us into contentment while explaining that "groundwater is protected from the fracking process by many layers of steal casing and cement." 

Within days, we predict, the young people will be glued to the Facebook, harboring an uncontrollable urge to share all of FrackFeed's content. 

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
