Crying Yellow Lego Face

Memes are just like life

I’ve recently returned from a previously unannounced trip to Czech Republic, where we attended a family wedding. It went well. Alcohol was consumed, food was eaten, words were exchanged, fun was had. I managed to avoid embarrassing myself in public by walking into glass or fainting. So, all in all, a success.

Now I’m back, and I want to talk to you about memes. Memes are clever, aren’t they? Who knew that you could sum up so much of life’s wisdom in a single picture with a simple caption? How inventive!

What’s that? Memes aren’t a new thing and have existed for so long that everyone’s tired of them?! Nonsense! Did you see the one with the condescending Wonka or the grumpy cat? They’re laughtastic. Funnylicious. Other made-up words. Nobody could possibly get bored of them. Certainly not anyone on the Internet, judging by how many versions of each we have created.

There is, of course, one problem with today’s memes. They tend to be lighthearted and humorous, and they very rarely manage to accurately reflect the content of the pictures they’re captioning. I will not stand, sit, or swim backward for this. It is time somebody created the serious, grounded memes we all deserve. That someone is me. These are my somber memes. Enjoy. (Or don’t. You shouldn’t, really.)
