Are you a smart person? Did you study philosophy? Are you into...theory? Well, these memes are for you. They're heady. They're philosophical. And they love to name-check Foucault. While we're not expecting everyone to *get* each image macro, we love that they exist at the bizarre intersection of academia and easily digestible humor. And if you crave more? Check out Welcome to the Desert of the Meme. The page is in the process of pivoting to Instagram, but you can soak up their classics on the ol' FB.
The virtual world was stormed by unexpected silence, when an angry ex-Twitter employee hacked and deactivated Donald Trump's Twitter account as his departing act (or gift?). Naturally, rumors ran wild over who might've done such a thing; but DJ Trump himself decided to finally break his silence on the matter, and smoothly segue from there into nothing short of a tweet storm to compensate for the momentary silence on his end.
The 'Dabbing Dude' meme is a meme with something for everyone. No matter how old you are or how kind, most people can relate to the feeling of reveling in another person's misfortune or even inconvenience. This shirtless youth, gleefully dabbing himself into oblivion as he watches a girl fight, represents that exact feeling.
While the premise is very basic, the meme is being used to describe some relatively complex ideas, ranging from politics to history. Versatile memes like this one tend to take off pretty quickly, so you can expect more great memes to come at you soon!
You might recognize Craig Mazin from his screenplays. He was the writer of the Hangover sequels and the Melissa McCarthy movie Identity Thief. He's also quickly becoming known as Ted Cruz's freshman roommate from college. Mazin isn't the only person who hates Ted Cruz, there's an entire internet meme accusing Cruz of being the Zodiac killer. But one thing is certain, Craig Mazin hates him the most.
As a meme page we like to avoid politics whenever necessary, but some memes just need to be documented. Last night's #SOTU address had several meme-y moments, from bullied Joshua Trump's nap to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's refusal to clap. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi did not share that sleepiness or reservation. Instead, her pointed clapping during one moment of President Trump's speech has been hailed as a clapback and has swiftly become a meme that hilariously eclipses politics. We're not sure if she was actively trying to throw shade at POTUS, but we are sure that this moment in meme history will not be forgotten.
Robert O'Neill's a former Navy Seal who participated in the raid on Osama bin Laden, and he claims he was the one who fired the bullets that actually killed him. On Thursday, O'Neill took to Twitter to rage on President Trump for giving marching orders to the Pentagon, to put on a show of strength in the streets of Washington.
Trump went in on Baldwin this morning, in what shows all appearances of a livid, typo-riddled rant of nonsensical insanity. Naturally, Baldwin (ever even-keeled....) clapped back with his own barrage of roasts. Don't let these two hot heads ever cross paths, man.
The results are in, and these exam questions deserve an A+. Leave it to the spicy, creative minds of Twitter users to hatch up some hilarious hypothetical questions for future exams about that ongoing Brexit saga. Can you picture it? A day in the future when kids sit down to answer that imperative question regarding how Brexit shook out. Do you think these replies are anywhere close to being on the mark? Who's to say.
Donald Trump inspired a wave of Twitter memes with his Monday night speech at the Boy Scout Jamboree. While the hashtag #TrumpScoutBadges was created that day, HuffPost Comedy took things to the next level when they included it in their Hashtag Roundup game. The badges range from creepy (Chemistry, featuring a photo of Trump and his daughter) to clever, but they're all pretty entertaining.
