Like Me, Like Me Not

Like Me, Like Me Not

Paul Muhlhauser and Andrea Campbell

Like Me, Like Me Not likes and dislikes Facebook's "Like" button. It shows how "Like" is a metonymy and a synecdoche. It even imagines what Kenneth Burke and Marshall McLuhan might say about the button. And, since those previous sentences weren't exactly invitations to read on, you'll also find Willy Wonka memes, Ryan Gosling memes, Twilight references, skateboarding dogs, and planking. You'll even get a chance to practice using the "Like" button. So go ahead and Like Me, Like Me Not if you are, like, ready to clickity-click!
