WASHINGTON - The Internet exploded with memes Wednesday mocking Mitt Romney for his "binders full of women" remark at his town-hall debate with President Barack Obama the night before.
"Captain of finance, binder of women," snickered one meme featuring a smiling portrait of the equity-fund tycoon turned politician and Republican White House challenger.
Another meme on a fast-growing Tumblr page (bindersfullofwomen.tumblr.com) showed a white binder labeled "All My Wives" - a reference to Romney's Mormon faith which, in the 19th century, preached polygamy.
"Binders full of women? Oh sure, I've got hundreds of them," ran the gag line across a photo of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner standing in a bathrobe amid rows of books in a library.
Yet another meme featured Obama's secretary of state Hillary Clinton in dark glasses peering at her BlackBerry smartphone and thinking: "Romney still uses binders?"
A grab shot from the video of Beyonce's 2008 hit "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" - in which she wore a steel glove - had the pop star telling Romney to "better put three rings on it."
