The internet. Ah, yes, the internet. Something that has the potential to be so incredibly smart but there are just days when we need to unplug. So enjoy GIFs of silent movie people disparaging the internet from before there was an internet. And you can enjoy it all on the internet.
(I love the internet, by the way. I love getting good deals on slivered almonds and having silent movies instantly delivered to my screen. That being said, it can be a little scary out there.)
Charles Clary is a French aristocrat of the pre-Revolution days in A Tale of Two Cities. Not a nice man but this title card fits the internet on its wilder days.
The internet again, ladies and gentlemen. In this case, Virginia Lee Corbin is speaking her mind in the flapper dramedy Bare Knees.
Here’s a GIF for complaining about people complaining on the internet, if you want to be very meta. It’s Clara Bow in Mantrap.
But some internet stuff is just cute. As cute as Charley Chase’s loony routine in Crazy Like a Fox.
But then you find out that your cute favorite is actually a Milkshake Duck and now what do you do? Well, you can admit that you were wrong, as King James did in Lorna Doone.
