Do photos with catchy phrases, pop culture buzz, and smart lines make you laugh? If so, why not use them in the ELT classroom? Your possible reaction: "Say whaaaat (TF...OMG)?" with a Grumpy Cat face. Before the idea triggers "diabeetus" in you, let me elaborate: Digging further into their apparent frivolousness, discover their richness in authentic discourse, depth in meaning, accuracy in use and usage, in other words, what makes them amusing. These virally spreading snippets of cultural commentary are imitated because they encapsulate relevant insights of current events. Their wisdom is rewarded by listeners with a laugh, and appeal to the most serious adult's inner brat. We can help our students benefit from their playful creativity by matching them with helpful ELT criteria for creative and brilliant fun at the crossroads of language, culture, and life!
