The first picture has two long word clusters, apparently nouns though maybe verbs. I assume they are meant to be sentences with, say, a 'li' after 'jan' and an 'e' before 'ni'. The second is maybe an imperative, lacking initial 'o'? The second note says "no" to the latter, making it an infinitive with 'ken' (which can, however, be a transitive verb "to empower"; it just doesn't make much sense here).
So the second picture works fine, though I still don't see the point of the 'kin'.
Third picture. "A different language? I don't think" presumably with "so" 'e ni'.
Cat: I assume the picture stands in for the subject here (interesting)
Scream: missing 'o' or 'li'?
'Crat: Missing 'li'? "forgets"?
Brat: 'nimi 'pi''. (names are adjectives).


jan Kipo o pona e ike pi mi mute.

1. You can't simply talk in toki pona.

Obviously, the simplest way to say: jan li ken ala toki kepeken toki pona
Butbhow to add "simply"?

2. Not interested girl

Mi pilin ala - maybe, "mi pilin ala e ni" - i'm not impressed - is it right?

On cat I've posted what
I'd thik is right before.

The 2nd one: "Learn all the words." http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/x-all-the-y I guess I should've put an 'o' there.

3rd: "Learns all the words of toki pona ... and it's gone." http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/and-its-gone

4th: "He forgot "pi". I destroyed his house." http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/disaster-girl This one is a bit iffy, as I wanted to say "he forgot to use "pi".

5th: "What if my red ... is your blue" http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/conspiracy-keanu

I think fragments should be tolerated to some degree, maybe following these guidelins? http://forums.tokipona.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2202

4th: nimi 'li' li namako li pakala. Also, it doesn't say what I want it to. "weka e nimi 'pi'" means "remove the word 'pi'". ken la "weka sona kepeken e" "forgot to use" anu "weka sona e kepeken (pi nimi 'pi')" "forgot the use (of the word 'pi')"?

5th: This doesn't follow the "style" of that meme.

Yes. 'li' is not needed here... But 'weka sona' means for me 'removed/omitted/clean the knowledge of', and it's not clearly states what really happend. If someone misses 'pi', for me 'weka' is more than enough.

jan Kute o! ni li pona kin!

lon ma ante la taso mi wile kama tawa tomo tawa pi linja tu la mi wile pana e wile sona kepeken Epilanto. jan li kepeken e toki pona la pana sona li ken kama suli en ike.

(not sure where's best to put a taso when there is a topically fronted prep in a la phrase going on) I'd try writing the instructions from my house to my office via the metro, but I'm afraid it would be tedious.

taso ni li lon: meli li pana e jan lili sin lon insa tomo L'Enfant Station pi tomo tawa pi linja tu. ni li nasa tan ni: nimi L'Enfant Station li toki Kanse tawa tomo pi jan lili! jan lili sin en mama pi ona jan li silejo pona.
