Memes are part of Internet culture. I thought it might be a little fun to share some memes here (if that's your thing).

I was inspired to create something recently after repeatedly mishearing the names of a couple of popular electric vehicles (not Tesla) and wanted to commemorate this humorous take for others. I'm going to preface that i am not fluently multilingual and recognize that language is varied and complex, but sometimes native speakers of one language can find some humor in the pronunciation (in this case, proper names) or misunderstanding (needed to make the meme work) by others.

You'll need to be a regular listener of the Electrek podcast to really get it. Here's a hint: Fred Lambert often pronounces Taycan like "taken" and Mach-E as "mackie". Yes, sorry, it's a bad meme.
