YMMV: The Joy Of Painting

  • Awesome Art
  • Memetic Badass:
    • Bob Ross once painted a portrait of Chuck Norris. It came to life and beat the original to death.
    • Titanium White, one of the paints Bob Ross uses is a memetic badass, due to its awesome sounding name.
      • In order to achieve its white pigment, Titanium White actually contains titanium, one of the most durable metals on Earth (don't get too excited; it's also what they use to dye paper white).
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • Happy little Xs
    • Bob Ross is very photoshoppable.
  • Sweet Dreams Fuel
  • True Art Is Angsty: Averted. The show is called "The Joy of Painting," after all.
    Ross: We want happy paintings. Happy paintings. If you want sad things, watch the news.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: Averted. All the paintings look like real landscapes, and the point of the show is that anybody who wants to paint can make them.
