My favorite memes from this generator.

The famous one: https://goo.gl/images/UPXMB9

Less famous but perhaps even more deserving: https://goo.gl/images/HkkLyE

Always loved these memes and wondered where these came from. I must commend the original and present makers for doing this. Yet at the same time i must remark on the frailty of the software (flash in this case) we use that makes many things obsolete in just a few years.

This isn't flash, its javascript.

I was remarking on the old version which was flash based.

This reminds me of my youth when a popular toy was called "Colorforms" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colorforms

They made generic sets as well as sets for various TV shows and movies -- you built up scenes by putting decals on backgrounds.

I remember that old original flash-version of the bayeux editor. It went broken like 4 years ago and I constantly thought about rebuilding it in javascript. It's so great that you did it.

There's probably a dozen of these that could get rebuilt in Haxe and OpenFL without much effort.

How can I add text?

Edit: OK, I found it.

For others wondering: Just click on some empty background, a text prompt will appear. Start to type.

where are the dragons?
