A FATHER has printed out a meme and distributed it by post because he thinks that is how they work.
Having discovered what he calls a ‘me-me’ on his desktop computer, 56-year-old Roy Hobbs printed off the amusing image and sent it to his son via Royal Mail 2nd Class.
Son James, aged 26, said: “Imagine my confusion when I received an envelope containing an picture of a blond woman shouting and pointing at a smug white cat, with a caption about Keir Stamer and Jeremy Corbyn. I thought I’d accidentally signed up to the UKIP mailing list.
“It was only when I turned it over and saw ‘Roy’ scrawled on the back that I realised it was from dad. He’s always been behind the times, as this meme from 2019 shows, but this is old-fashioned even by his standards.
“I thought we’d turned a corner when I told him he didn’t need to print off his emails to read them, but clearly I should have specified that meant images too. God help me if he learns how to access TikTok, he’ll be recording challenges onto VHS.”
Father Roy Hobbs added: “I’ve found some memes about Vince Cable I’m sure my son will enjoy. He should really chip in for my dial-up though.”
