Catmacro or lolcat, call them what you will but they are everywhere. And what better to do with them than mix them with Apple’s iPod posters and adverts. Two memes for the price of one.

Shooting Fish In a Barrel, Live fish or dead fish?
Shooting Fish In a Barrel, Live fish or dead fish? Small

When you hear the phrase “Shooting Fish In a Barrel” what do visualise? Is it a barrel full of water with live fish happily swimming in it. Or is it a barrel full of dead fish? Its an important question about your psychology. If its live fish, the shooting fish in a barrel is a easy task but one with the possibility of failure. On the other hand, if you are shooting a barrel full of dead fish the result is a foregone certainty.
There seems to be no consensus in the online dictionaries. Using English defines it as “If something is like shooting fish in a barrel, it is so easy that success is guaranteed.” but Slang City has it as “an easy success”

The Treachery Of Popes was not a painting by Belgian Surrealist René Magritte however The Treachery of Images is. More commonly known by its inscription Ceci n’est pas une pipe (“This is not a pipe”) it is a classic of surrealism that challenges the viewer to think about what they are seeing. It is not a pope pipe but a picture of a pipe pope. Magritte went on to expand on this concept in his painting the Key of Dreams, where Magritte pulled the same stunt in a painting of an apple. He painted the fruit realistically and then used an internal caption or framing device to deny that the item was an apple. In these Ceci n’est pas works, Magritte points out that no matter how closely, through realism-art, we come to depicting an item accurately, we never do catch the item itself, per se.
