About this design:
Joseph Kony is an African guerrilla army warlord from Uganda, leader of the violent LRA ( Lord's Resistance Army ). Kony has been indicted for war crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court in The Hague since 2005, but remains at large and continues to terrorise innocents.
Among other heinous atrocities, the LRA and Joseph Kony are most renowned for actively kidnapping children in Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Sudan, and other surrounding lands and forcing them into his army. Despite years of this, Kony has remained relatively unknown to those generally unfamiliar with African politics....
.....until now! In 2012 a grassroots campaign was launched by a group known as Invisible Children to bring world awareness to Kony and his exploits, in an effort to spur international assistance and intervention on behalf of the exploited children of Uganda. A 30 minute video outlining their intentions went viral in early March, sparking an internet crusade to make "Kony" a household name.
Perhaps when Joseph Kony is finally entrenched in the social consciousness, the world will no longer stand idly by, and justice will be served. Stop Kony 2012!that proliferate
user content generated websites such as reddit, 4chan, and 9gag, among others,
which consist of a basic set of silly and funny fundamental
characters, or "rage faces," that can be applied to different circumstances and
tell real life or imaginary stories, usually with hilarious results.
The rage comics are usually created with programs such as photoshop or MSpaint, or
or websites specifically created for the purpose, and reposted elsewehere, predominately
on reddit under the subreddit /r/ fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu , otherwise known as f7u12
, from which they often spread virally throughout the internet.
Some of the more popular rage faces are: forever alone, me gusta, F*** yea guy, okay guy,
cereal guy, and of course the orginal "fuuuuuuu" rageguy rage face. There is no single artist or creator
responsible for individual rage faces; like a true meme, they emerge and evolve and spread organically and collectively.
High resolution, extensively vectorised and detailed versions of these rage faces and many, many more can be found
on thousands of customisable products. See you there!
