If you don’t know who is EBM (epic beard man), after viewing these pictures and the video, you’ll get it. The EBM has become popular on the net in the blink of an eye, so now he is a new baked internet meme. Everything started with this video featuring a 67-year-old white man wearing a T-shirt that reads “I AM A MOTHERFUCKER” having “a heated argument fueled by racial ignorance resulting in a physically violent confrontation” with a 50 year-old black man. And as this is a very popular meme, so of course there are now lots of photoshopped images floating around the internet. Now let’s look at the video and the pictures. “After the black man’s nose is broken, he says “bring an ambulance” which has been misheard as both “bring M&M’s” and “bring Amber Lamps” due to a combination of his dialect and facial injury. Amber Lamps has also come to be used as a pseudonym for the girl sitting next to the black man in the video.” [knowyourmeme]
P.S. The video is rather violent with blood, not for the eyes of kids.
While newspapers are filled with news about the pirates of Somalia, there is a war for power that is lasting between the loyal and hardline Islamists. Thousands of innocent people die in this fight. Since the beginning of the insurgency in December 2006, nearly 17,000 civilians lost their lives.
