I struggle with trying to find something original to say when the unicycle, flaming pipes etc. land. I can't count how often I've been sent the recent "don't run with pipes..."

That said, it's lovely that people are thinking of me and I appreciate them taking the time to let me know.

Lol, true. I usually just give them a like and move on.

Though, occasionally I will post a retaliatory video with some actual GOOD piping in it to counteract the flaming pipers.

It is nice to be thought of, but it makes you wonder what they think of you sometimes.
I came up with a generic/coverall to post once in a while to get the message through.

I enjoy the soon to be decease unicyclist fish food image, as for the return of the zombie bagpipe memes; Consider it like Herpes, the gift that keeps on giving. Almost make one wonder though... Is this The Accordionists' Revenge?

I think about this whenever I'm tempted to share something with someone "because they'll love it".

My inclination is to assume the other person probably HAS heard whateveritis a thousand times already and thus don't share much. My husband, on the other hand, holds to the credo that anything that comes to mind should be voices. Eye rolling is a well developed skill...

Add to that the "dangerous bacteria" or "piper's lung" article that comes out every few years. It annoys me no end to have people endlessly say "have you seen that?" and telling me about it for the 50th time.

I think I've seen the 'Badpiper' (dude playing fast along to Thundestruck with fire coming from just behind his pipes) three times, and the most recent one is the guy piping while bungee jumping. That's been sent to me / included on my news feed three or four times over the past couple months.

Haven't seen the bunny in the kilt one yet.

I know some have sent me the links / memes knowing I'm either of Scottish descent, or they know I play the bagpipes. They mean well... I figure they are just playing into the over the top ethnicity thing that Americans seem to have at times. Like they all are suddenly part Irish on March 17th.
