La trahison des mèmes

Pixiv link / English title: "The Treachery of Memes"

The famous bottle. How people reproached me for it! And yet, could you fill my bottle? No, it's just a representation, is it not? So if I had written on my picture "This is a bottle," I'd have been lying!

(It's a meme on Pixiv. Someone posted a picture of a bottle and said "put something in it!" Now there's more than 400 pictures made in response. I just took it in a different direction!)

Interesting art.
And great signification.

The most deceiving thing about this bottle, is that I'm sure peoples will find a way to fill it, regardless of the fact that it's not a bottle.

That's actually part of the joke: the whole point of the Pixiv meme is filling the bottle with your own creations.

See? It works on so many levels, this is like Dave Strider levels of irony. ;)

Bottle? What bottle. You see no CAPTCHA bottle.
