Chuck Palahniuk’s gripping novel Fight Club will never gain the acclaim that the movie has. It’s one of the few books where a film adaptation is legitimately better, yet also highlights all the glaring flaws of this one trick pony of a writer.
Case in point? These edgy Fight Club memes that transform the character of Tyler Durden into the spitting image of r/Showerthoughts washing off after losing a UFC bout.
Durden feels like a precursor to Jared Leto’s Joker and the forced edginess of Suicide Squad. Flintstone vitamins without the Flintstones TV show? You rebel, you.
