Here are the meme-fied seasons so far:
Season 1 ∙ Season 2 ∙ Season 3
For CFA exam study breaks, I either watched an episode of Friends, or, er, created dank memes.
So when I was deciding what to contribute to 300 Hours, the choice was obvious: combine my two unholy pastimes and see what happens.
Behold, the Friends CFA Exam Meme Challenge: memefy every episode of Friends, ever.
No challenge is complete without rules. Here are the ones I’ve agreed to:
- All memes must relate to the CFA Program or CFA exams.
- At least one meme per episode. More is fine.
- Double episodes are considered two separate episodes.
- Accurate dialogue must be used. No swapping out words for convenience.
I’ll target the more memorable scenes where possible – this turned out to be harder than I thought it would be. Also, if you have any meme suggestions, let me know via the comments – I’ll mock them up and add them in here.
Here’s Season 1 of Friends in CFA exam memes!
S01E01 – The Pilot
The start of Friends also has a meme befitting the start of every candidates’ CFA journey.
S01E02 – The One With the Sonogram at the End
I never really did fully understand Markowitz’s Efficient Frontier. Someone kind enough to send me an ELI5?
S01E03 – The One with the Thumb
“Modest gifts and entertainment are acceptable, but special care must be taken by members and candidates to resist subtle and not-so-subtle pressures to act in conflict with the interests of their clients.”
Where is the modest-immodest line drawn?!
S01E04 – The One with George Stephanopoulos
S01E05 – The One with the East German Laundry Detergent
I really, really wanted to make this line work.
S01E06 – The One with the Butt
OK, so I’m one of those that bring a lot of pencils
to the CFA exam. I don’t want to waste time sharpening them during the exam, and they all came in one big pack!
S01E07 – The One with the Blackout
No matter how hard I try, some CFA questions aren’t meant to be understood. Or answered correctly. That’s what I think.
S01E08 – The One Where Nana Dies Twice
I hope I’m not tempting fate with this. *knocks on wood*
S01E09 – The One Where Underdog Gets Away
Getting motivation to start studying really is the hardest part…
S01E10 – The One with the Monkey
Still unrealistic to a degree though – what dates?!
S01E11 – The One with Mrs. Bing
Paolo may lick hands and is generally a scumbag, but does that put him in violation of Standard I(D) Misconduct? He did come on to Phoebe though, so…
S01E12 – The One with the Dozen Lasagnas
I still have my CFA Level 1 curriculum to refer to, but what do charterholders do once they’ve passed all the exams?
S01E13 – The One with the Boobies
Even when told exactly how to do it, I sometimes still can’t do it.
They may not be love, but snacking while studying feels good.
S01E14 – The One with the Candy Hearts
No more words are needed.
S01E15 – The One with the Stoned Guy
S01E16 – The One with Two Parts: Part 1
You’ve probably caught on by now – I’m not very good at calculation questions.
Procrastination may be the thief of time, but is also the mother of creativity. When it comes to excuses, that is.
S01E17 – The One with Two Parts: Part 2
S01E18 – The One with All the Poker
Superior returns guaranteed.
S01E19 – The One Where the Monkey Gets Away
S01E20 – The One with the Evil Orthodontist
S01E21 – The One with the Fake Monica
S01E22 – The One with the Ick Factor
S01E23 – The One with the Birth
You are allowed in if you’re up to 30 minutes late, but why do that to yourself?
S01E24 – The One Where Rachel Finds Out
Well, there’s always the next exam.
