We live in an era of memes.
What is a meme? Wikipedia defines it as “an activity, concept, catchphrase or piece of media which spreads, often as mimicry, from person to person via the Internet.”
If you are on Facebook or any other social media you will have noticed that memes pop up everywhere. There are simple memes, detailed memes, short memes, long memes, visual memes, textual memes.
People share memes, comment on them, “like” them, and often create their own.
Just for fun, I thought I'd share 10 popular memes from Memes.com.
1. Choose a major you love
Most memes are meant to be short, simple, and funny. This is an example that holds a sad yet comical semblance of truth:
2. Killer flamingos
This meme adds more of a visual element than the previous one, but follows along the same short and humorous style:
3. The sandwich thief
Though most memes are short and sweet, some are a bit more elaborate. This is one of those:
4. Tea chart
Some memes actually contain useful information! Like this one about different kinds of teas and what symptoms they supposedly help treat:
5. English is confusing
English is confusing but puns are fun! This meme is one that I'm sure I've seen shared around a few times:
6. Peter Pan pun
The puns never end! This dog has become a welcome and humorous presence on social media:
7. T-rex hugs
Some memes are meant to be more cutesy. So for anyone who likes that kind of thing, here ya go:
8. Kid-designed stuffed animals
This meme displays some toys created from the designs of kids themselves. How unique!
9. Can't sink a ship
Some memes aim for inspiration rather than humor. For example:
10. The joys of fatherhood
And we'll end with another funny one:
Memes can be annoying, yes, but they can be fun too! What are your favorite memes?
