So for a backstory on Lena: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lenna
There's this small project with little use and the last commit 4+ years ago.
It's a supposedly "more optimal" way to convert from jpegs to PNGs on images that should have been PNGs in the first. Lena is the defacto image demonstrating image compression and has been for decades.
Up comes this issue thread called: "Consider retiring with the Lena example"

I was locked out of that thread and can no longer comment.
Then comes: "Consider not retiring Lena"
* Archive link: http://archive.is/wip/4K5Ne
I had the first comment after the initial post (which I deleted later), saying that something like a meme or infrographic might make a useful addition, but that I thought Lena should be kept.
I also linked to an example meme: https://pic8.co/sh/wNiSnf.jpeg
Probably not the one I should have used among normies.
The first comment you see posted is actually my second. At that point I had deleted the first comment since it wasn't helping the case for keeping Lena.
Then, it gets even more juicy with "MatthiasWinkelmann."
I'm called a hillbilly fascist and a Mr. MAGA-McIncel.
Anyway, enjoy this slice of Clown World.
