When you start making threads about them.


Seriously though, I don't agree with your coworker, there are also Me Gusta shirts and I still pee my pants a little almost every time that guy shows up in a comic.

1. Chuck Norris jokes were never funny.


I thought they were pretty funny. I liked that they went away for a while, and now are magically back in t-shirt form.

Of all the stupid jokes on the internet, I thought it was pretty funny. I do often wonder what chuck norris thought of them...

Came in here to say this. Also, memes stop being funny when little arseholes post them all over Facebook whilst using the xDDDD face. Fuck off please.

There are very few internet phenomena that can survive the transition to real life without coming off as stupid and lame. See: Anonymous protests, Tosh.0, and people who say "lol."

people say "lol" outloud?

i'd say the meme is over when your mom posts them on facebook

Hot topic is where memes go to die

"I weep for Narcissus, but I never noticed that Narcissus was beautiful. I weep because, each time he knelt beside my banks, I could see, in the depths of his eyes, my own beauty reflected."

That was sorta the point. You do get the occasional funny thread, once in a blue moon. Apart from that though, it's horrible.

I've said it before, and I will say it again.

Memes on internet = mildly funny to funny
Memes not on internet = Usually shite, or has minimal comedic value.

It's really just a matter of how they're used. I have some friends who will throw in a meme or a variation of a meme when we're hanging out at the right time, and it will be genuinely funny. I have other friends (one especially) who will just list off random, irrelevant memes (both internet memes, and inside jokes among us) with no timing whatsoever, and obviously, that isn't really funny.

Memes are only funny if you use them right. No one EVER uses them right. Because you can't use them right.

I do, however, say "I ain't even mad" and "lol" outloud everyday, multiple times a day, and I'm a funny fucker.

The Chuck Norris jokes were NEVER funny. Ever. I have never laughed at a single one and I've always thought they were ****ing stupid.

However, the whole trollface/stickfigurefaces is pretty ****ing hilarious.

Except not really.

If I see a joke a hundred times, it's not funny anymore. I just don't understand what part of people's brains makes them think that continuing to post the exact same thing over and over is going to continue to be funny. I don't understand why people still post the troll face, for example. It wasn't particularly funny to begin with and now it's just obnoxious.

QFT.

Seriously, I've never even smiled at a Chuck Norris joke, except maybe out of sympathy for the joke teller.

And TS, a meme stops being funny when it's everywhere and everyone is saying it.
It's kind of a complicated thing, a meme is supposed to be popular but it stops being funny when it's too popular (if that makes any sense)

The thing about Charlie Sheen though was that the meme was forced by the media.

I'm now less surprised as to why I never found it funny. Don't get me wrong, I'm quite a fan of some memes, like the rage faces, but some of them are so overdone it's not worth it anymore.
