Howard Stern may be the reigning personality people think of when they hear “shock radio,” but with the arrival of this Inappropriate Radio DJ meme, Internet users may be associating a different face with humorous radio banter.
The way the Inappropriate Radio DJ meme works is that said DJ will announce some outrageous news story on-air before cutting to a song, only the song he chooses to play afterwards always seems insensitive to the news he just presented to his listeners. For example, one of these hilarious image macros reads: “Twelve people died in a fire at a nightclub. Next up: Panic! At the Disco.” The hilarity is amplified because of the expression on the DJ’s face, which looks as smarmy as you can get.
