Huffington Post made a “Are you Celebrating Easter or 420” quiz The Examiner made a list of the reasons that the holidays should be joined forever, and in preparation for the holiday there was even an ad featuring Jesus holding a sandwich and ... read more
The movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier includes a terrorist organization from the Marvel universe called Hydra. During the movie one of the characters whispers the catchphrase "Hail Hydra" to another Hydra member in a serious but notably awkward manner. It reminded me of the way that Voldemort hugged Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier came out on April 4th and on the 6th the first images captioned with "Hail Hydra" began to ... read more
Today’s meme, The Calming Manatee, isn’t a new thing at all- in fact it’s been around since 2012. I had forgotten all about this simple caption meme until seeing it posted on a friend’s Facebook page.
It doesn’t have a lot of ‘practical purposes’ as a response image since it isn’t doesn’t feature a highly charged emotional reaction.
Also the manatee itself is more of a ‘neutral’ animal. They aren’t ferocious, hip, or even furry like cats. They are dopey, ugly-cute, ... read more
Not long ago I spotted a link shared from one of the cosplay Facebook pages that I follow.
It was about a Japanese Meme, which roughly translates to “Special Feeling”.

The young couple was asked and the man blurted out “When you’re with your lover and it’s snowing, you are just ... read more
The fans of the show Doctor Who are some of the silliest people on the internet. The fandom has been responsible for many memes and amusing reaction GIFs since the 2005 re-launch of the show. A large number of these fans are on Tumblr, a site also known for being goofy and heavy in memes and reaction GIFs.
When the 11th Doctor left the show Peter Capaldi was revealed as the next actor who would take the role of The Doctor.
The entire fandom wondered what sort of silly outfit Capaldi would have ... read more
“Feel” and “Feels” are the shortening of “feelings” which seems to have originated on Tumblr in 2012. It describes intense feelings, commonly those of sadness. I really like the term “feels” but the meme face that has recently been attributed to it is so ugly. When actively trying to avoid something you dislike, sometimes you can overlook how popular it is really becoming.

Twilicane, also known as Twicane, Twilight’s Cane, Twi-scepter, or most accurately Twilight Sparkle’s Scepter, is a forced meme that derives from the Season 4 Episode 2 of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. The Scepter (since that is a more accurate word for it, than cane) was drawn by storyboard artist for the show Sibsy.
I personally think that the staring eyes and creepy/cute smile are somewhat reminiscent of other memes that involve staring such as the memes centered on the Pokemon ... read more
