How do you feel about memes?, Though memes aren't serious this debate is (somewhat)

I love memes, mainly because I'm good at the timing. If my friends are talking about Dragon Ball Z, I know I can slip in an "OVER 9000!" in there and get some laughs. I've even made arrow to the knee jokes and gotten laughs. I've got a lot of favorite memes.

Condescending Wonka;; It's what we're all thinking and so true.

Most Interesting Man;; They're hilarious, and the commercials the meme is based on is amazingly funny.

Philosiraptor;; Makes you really think. *mind blown*

The one I don't like is "U mad bro?" because I play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on Xbox. And the other people that play it are all either little kids (12 or younger) who think they're cool and older (13+) people trying way to hard be cool. So they always say "U mad bro?" when they piss people off.

Came back on a whim because I saw something that reminded me of here. If you remember me, hit me up on Discord CHR|Flygon#8505 and if you a real one, tell me where I frequented most on here so we can catch up like the old days.

I think meme's are harmless, but it's a shame when they're not funny or flat out annoying. OVER 9000 and Arrow to the Knee was never funny, for example.

The Willy Wonka memes make me laugh a ton due to the sarcasm of it.
But some memes do get on my nerves, I don't understand the Skyrim meme.

Probably because I never played that game.

It all depends on comedic timing, inherent hilarity of the meme, and where it is applied. F*** up one of these, and...

Yeah, generally when a meme first comes out, it is funny. But if it keeps getting overused, then it just goes downhill. Seriously annoying, some of them, but pure gold, others.

Sorry all <3 memes.

I do not use them to be 'funny' or 'cool'...I'm neither and I know it. I do it because heck if I'm living my life that worried about pleasing others, or what others will think about me. And they amuse me. Because I have to be easily amused with all the bull in the town I live in. Or I WILL SNAP, and likely will kill someone. (Not joking)

Actually, except for a very few people, I don't care what people think about me at all. :P

Although they have changed a lot over the years, quite a lot of them have made me laugh.

Hi.



Most of them I don't really find funny. There are a few that are clever, but like foods with no preservatives, memes get stale quickly.

However I still can't stop laughing at the one with a Spiderman figurine that from behind looks like he's twerking no matter how many times I see it XD

wat



The problem with memes is now people overuse and misuse them constantly out of context without understanding anything about them. They're much too popular to really be inside jokes anymore. If you don't understand some meme, then that's good, that means it's an inside joke still and not yet run into the ground by 9gag or Reddit.

I think that memes are a great way to express yourself if they are done in moderation. It is when they become overused that they become annoying.

Shamefully, I love memes, even the ones that are bit old now and are overused.

The Condescending Wonka meme never fails to make me giggle wherever I see it; be it on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr.

My current favourite meme is probably Grumpy Cat. Have you seen that they now sell Grumpachinos?!

Don't even get me started on the OVER 9000 meme... xD

Currently, me and one of my co-workers try to slip in "that's what she said" whenever we can. I think he's beating me at the moment, but hey, who's counting? xD I should know better, being his supervisor and all, but if someone says something that can be made into an innuendo, even slightly, it is guaranteed that one of us will say "that's what she said" xD

So yeah, memes will never get old for me xD

Awww yeah



Personally? I find memes the most annoying thing on Earth.
Every single one.

Show me Nyan Cat? Gag. Troll faces? Vomit. Doges? Hack, splutter, cough.

But seriously, what is with this elitist attitude that if you don't enjoy something, no one can?
I like to let people have their fun. I don't care if you like memes. I really, really do not.
(just please keep it away from me.)

Of course, exceptions exist. If I see somebody wearing a fedora or shirt that says "get back in the kitchen", I'll be gone in a blink.

I personally hate them. Many of my closest friends spend their days on meme generators just laughing at the comics all day. I can only sit there and watch in horror as I'm forced to fake a laugh as they show me the same meme for the hundredth time that day. After a while I usually just get tired of pleasing them and say something cold about how I dont' care :P I don't care if other people like them, but they can't expect me to feel the same way.
