'Sure Grandma, Let's Get You To Bed' Memes Mock Doubtful Truths

We love an easily exploitable meme format, and September's brought us some gems in that department. Our new favorite super-versatile meme has got to be 'Sure Grandma, Let's Get You To Bed'. The trend started on Twitter, but is popping up all over Instagram and Reddit- probably because it can be used in reference to just about everything. Most examples feature the "Grandma" character saying something (like "Netflix used to come in the mail") that sounds extremely hard to believe. The granddaughter character brushes the information off as nonsense, and suggests Grandma needs to rest her addled mind. We've put together some of our favorite examples of the meme, but we're willing to bet you'll find a lot more flying around the meme universe.

Tumblr Fun: 'The Umbrella Academy' Characters As Weird Stock Photos

Neflix's The Umbrella Academy, now on its second season, has inspired quite a few excellent memes. The show, which is inspired by the comic book series of the same name, features an awesome cast (Ellen Page!) and has been garnering excellent reviews for both its seasons. The warm reception extends to avid tv-watchers, who are putting their own spin on the show by creating memes such as 'Vanya and Five Drive By Each Other.' But the fund doesn't stop with image macros. Tumblr user heinouspurification (whom we can no longer seem to track down) pleasantly surprised us today with an entertaining post. Its purpose? To cast the UA cast as weird stock photos. And oh, it does not disappoint.

Former Doctor Who star David Tennant was just announced as the villainous Zebediah Killgrave (The Purple Man) in Marvel's Netflix original AKA Jessica Jones. Starring opposite Krysten Ritter, Tennant's Kilgrave is:

An enigmatic figure from Jessica's past, Kilgrave's reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero's world... After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.
In the comics Kilgrave is a former spy who, after being exposed to experimental chemical weapons, can make any lie believable. With that backstory, we can only hope Tennant has the same power.

Attention Netflix subscribers: Now that you've already binged away your life on "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black," there's some good news.

A new show is in the works!

Netflix has bought the rights to produce an original TV series based on the dark children's books, "A Series of Unfortunate Events."

And here's what Lemony Snicket (i.e. author David Handler) himself has to say about it:

"I can't believe it," Mr. Snicket said, from an undisclosed location. "After years of providing top-quality entertainment on demand, Netflix is risking its reputation and its success by associating itself with my dismaying and upsetting books."

A film version based on the first book starring Jim Carrey was released back in 2004.

I seemingly benign tweet from the Daredevil official Twitter is causing something of a stir for fans of the Netflix series. We already know that both The Punisher and Elektra will be making their MCU debut in season 2 of Matt Murdock's blind-lawyer-turned-vigilante-crime-fighter show, but now we may have yet another villain!

Late in season 1, Murdock gets the help of Melvin, a slow witted but talented designer to beef up his crime fighting suit. The tweet (seen below) implies that Melvin may take on a new role, as Gladiator, one of Daredevil's first villains.

With both Punisher and Elektra giving Matt a run for his money, we're not sure there's enough room for a Gladiator/Daredevil showdown. Heck, we still want more Fisk and Vanessa.
