I know there's more important shtuff going on, but still...

It's like memes are a defining part of our generation, i mean are they going to be studied by even-more-braindead sons of our sons one day?

When they first appeared i did find them funny, as a 12 year old they were great. But now...really?

Anyone else want to grumble about stuff?

I would personally would find it hillarious if people 1000 years from now studied the lolwut pear.

I'd honestly fap to anything with a set of genitals as long as I find it aesthetically appealing.

Because there are a new generation of 12 year olds using the internet so that's why they are still around.
#4
they're not a new thing at all. the internet has changed the way we tell jokes, that's all.
i don't know why i feel so dry
#7
Some of them are great. Most of them are shite. It's cool as long as you don't go to reddit tho.

And another thing: Tumblr. Screenshots of lame people making lame puns and others replying with "OMG LAME PUN" followed by a Supernatural.gif and a circlejerk

Because there are new ones still waiting to be made, same with gifs.
Whats goes around must come down
#17
I like gifs, there are a lot more of them around so they don't get way too over-used

Memes have existed as long as pop-culture has existed. Not likely to change any time soon. I don't know why people act like the internet sparked a meme revolution.

most of the things you call "trend" can also be named as memes I guess. Hawai shirts, backpack pins etc

edit: sorry those are meme products. not meme. meme is the idea or trend itself

Meme
a cultural item that is transmitted by repetition and replication in a manner analogous to the biological transmission of genes.


Its not only pictures. Any quotes, accents, popular cultural icons, etc... You go far enough back, language, of any sort, can be considered a meme.

EDIT: Anybody can look back at their childhood in grade school and remember all the stupid shit you and your friends were repeating, just 'cause.

If you really need it explaining to you, you probably shouldn't have access to the internet.

Ah, fair enough. Well i meant internet memes, in the current common sense of the word (albeit flawed)
#29
Well I meant the same idea applies to internet memes (not gonna go away anytime soon). It's just a new medium to express them in and faster.

Remember that weird 'S' that every kid used to draw in their notebooks? Everyone recognised the symbol, but nobody knew where it came from or what it meant. That was a pre-internet meme.
#33
It's easier to use a template and/or someone else's creative thought to be funny than it is to come up with something original. Plus it's like an "inside joke" for all the losers on the internet with no real friends.

Never saw that S
Another pre-internet meme, though, is shouting "Free Bird" at concerts. That's definitely a meme-like meme. And dumber than most internet memes probably.
