8:54 PM PT: I posted this without anything but snark and a good laugh in mind, and look how the comment thread devolved into a flame war while simultaneously chastising me for posting a piece of "tripe" flame-bait. There is literally nothing in this diary but moving pictures! No arguments. Nothing. All the arguing in the comment thread below this diary is coming from those who have axes to grind and needed a venue through which to project their pent-up crap.

This is the paradox of DailyKos. Be it a well-reasoned diary or literally a bunch of moving pictures with no text around it, this website cannot facilitate a decent discussion anymore regardless of what is actually posted. The most serious diaries on this political website are non-political.

If you want the flame wars to stop, don't go into a diary, call it flame bait, and use that as license to start arguing. That kicks the legs out from under your pedestal. Blog the change you seek to see. And lighten up. That facial expression of the lady in the first .gif is pretty damn funny.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
