Late on this, but the ‘Mo Farah Running Away From Things’ meme is great (pics)

As I’ve freely admitted above, I was way too slow on the uptake with this one, but the genius and amusing nature of the latest Olympics-related meme, “Mo Farah Running Away From Things” makes it just too fantastic to pass up.

Of course, Mo Farah is the Somalia-born, British Olympics hero, who ran his way into the hearts of the Brits by securing two gold medals — one in the 10,000-meter and another in the 5,000-meter — at the London Games as he became a national hero.

The Farah meme comes on the heels of the highly entertaining “McKayla Is Not Impressed” meme, and if you ask me, it’s just as great.

My favorites follow. The best ones tended to be film-based, with Mo running away from Spartans in 300, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters, the Nazgûl (or Ringwraiths) from The Lord of the Rings, for example, but there’s a few that fall outside the realm of cinema.

Enjoy. I am sure there are a least of few of them that will elicit a chuckle or two.
