I am always a sucker for a good joke. I love things that can make me laugh, even if they are an anathema to everything I believe in. Comedy has its roots firmly planted in the soil of truth and pain. You don’t laugh at something because it’s false, you laugh because it’s based on fact and truth. Your laughter is how you deal with the pain of reality. Memes are just one of the many vehicles that can convey that truth in such a way that it can at least create a small grin, if not a hearty guffaw.
The fascinating part of a meme is that you don’t actually have to agree with the premise of the meme to laugh at it (although it does help). I laugh at a LOT of the partisan memes that get posted here — even if I don’t agree with the underlying premise. The joke is still there ready to be laughed at.
I post a LOT of memes on FaceCrack. They cover all sorts of places people and things. The only rule I use in posting these memes is that they made me laugh. That’s it. I don’t post for any kind of “message” — I just want you to laugh.
I have people send me memes that they’ve found in the wild every day. I get some REALLY obscure memes this way.
Feel free to post the memes that make YOU laugh. For extra credit, try to post memes that are NOT political.
