    This is why all internet memes become as annoying as they do.

    I don’t get this one at all. You can’t comment by smiling out of context because all smiles have context? Eye rolling however seems to be totally without context?

    Best I can suggest is to put two small circles in a big circle so they look like eyes. With an animated GIF you could make they roll.

      I believe what she means is, if you make a comment in the appropriate context, it causes smiles, but if you don’t, it causes an eyeroll.

      Given the title, I would venture to guess the implication is an inside joke–people who know what it means will smile, people who don’t will roll their eyes and think you’re crazy (or just feel left out, I suppose).

    Smile and eye rolling are results. Comments inside context warrant smiles. Comments outside of context get rolled eyes.

    i.e. Out of context

    Or… to use Scott’s observation too:

    Inside joke = smiles
    Out of context = eye-rolling
