"Old Economy Steve" meme bashes Reaganomics!

As the Know Your Meme encyclopedia summarizes it:

On the following day, the Internet news blog The Daily Dot[3] published an article about the meme, noting that the advice animal resonated well with frustrated young workers. On May 17th, the Internet news blog UpRoxx[4] published a slideshow of notable examples from the series. On May 23rd, 2013, the “Ron Paul Problems” Tumblr[6] blog published a compilation of image macros from the series titled “Old Economy Steve,” which gained more than 5,300 notes in the next 24 hours. On May 24th, Redditor NarwhalBaconCat resubmitted the same compilation the /r/funny[5] subreddit, where it received over 1,800 up votes and 230 comments in the first hour.

Some of the best ones in the KYM:
