Weekend Fun: Lean Memes Contest
Want to win a copy of one of my books (Lean Hospitals or Healthcare Kaizen). Or some other book(s) from Amazon, up to a $25 value? Can you create a funny internet image?
If so, Enter the LeanBlog “Lean Memes” contest, running through September 13.
Back in March, I discovered some funny “Lean Memes,” including a 5 Whys parody of the Dos Equis “most interesting man in the world,” which I blogged about. I never really shared them on the blog, just via Twitter, but I created some of these, as did Christina Kach and others, and the new Lean Memes were collected on this blog I created (if you want laughs or inspiration).
If somebody has good “standardized work” for how to create a meme picture (it's pretty easy), let me know in the comments.
A few tips:
- If you're not really familiar with creating a meme picture… you're just adding words to an existing picture. It's easy.
- You can right-click and save the picture to your computer for uploading via the contest page, or you can email me the URL of the page or image.
- Be funny.

Welp, there goes my weekend. I better get started on these before college football rules the space between my ears again.
Early contest entries:
And thanks for your guest post earlier this week, Chad!
Also, a couple of links to use for creating memes:
Here’s one I created that isn’t Lean related, but I like it:
Thanks, Chad – and there are some links and instructions on the contest page.
This is the one meme that started it all for me:
Mark, I had an issue with just sending the URL – the form wouldn’t let me submit unless the field for uploading a file was completed. I saved a copy of the image and sent it over, but that’s something that could use a little PDCA. :D
Thanks for pulling the andon cord. Problem fixed! The file attachment is no longer a required field.
The URL for the Lean Memes blog is now:
The old blogspot address will forward, including any old links.
