A quote that’s commonly attributed to Mark Twain goes “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” Ironically, he probably never said this. But somebody did. And it’s a saying that floats through my mind when I see memes spread around.

Maybe the new iteration should be something like “A meme can travel half way around the world while the news is turning its phone on.” or something. Because memes aren’t truth. They’re not news. They’re beautiful, stupid, entertaining lies. And they should be enjoyed as such.

Let’s take some memes not even slightly seriously together.

It’ll be nice.

10. I woke up like this

9. This isn’t gonna work out


7. 24/7, baby

6. Modern medicine is lame

5. Now they’re sunk

4. It’s peanut butter jelly time

3. Leave Brittany alone!!

2. Invest in the stress

1. Shorts for the short

As Mark Twain also never said, “Thems are some dank memes, and Huck Finn is going to age poorly.”

What are your favorite kind of memes to waste time with?
