We recently ran a contest on Twitter to collect the best InfoSec memes from the community. First I polled folks from my personal account to gauge interest, and wow was there interest! You know me and I definitely had to do a compedium blog on these funny as well as educational security memes. Since this blog on IT jokes from 2015 did so well, maybe this meme thing will catch on too!
If we run a contest on #infosec funny memes - will people "get" what that means? There would be extra points for originality - really good swag as prizes. @J4vv4D @BayAreaPR @smtorrey @ErrataRob @MalwareJake - thoughts?

It is clear more work needs to be done and time invested in creating more InfoSec and security memes. But with everyone off doing actual InfoSec work, it makes it tough to find the time for this valuable work.
