Popular Memes
These are memes that have received popular entries and are widely recognized on the internet
Where can I find memes?
Rage Comics

Don't let appearances fool you
What is a Meme?
Well, the formal definition of a meme is an element of a culture passed by an individual to another through nongenetic means. The word "meme" derived from the Greek word "Mimeme" which means "imitated thing".

How memes work in a nutshell
However what we are looking at today is Internet Memes (ooooh!)
Internet memes are solely humorous images, videos, speech, actions, etc. that are rapidly spread through internet users creating a phenomenon
Examples:
A very ignorant interpretation by me
Once upon a time someone posted a picture of their dog on their online blog
But then people of the internet found the picture and became strangely fascinated with the dog's face...
And then this starts happening...
People start to make videos of it...
and Artists of the Internet contribute...

Despite how memes are usually created from leisure and acts as a tomfoolery past time, memes do bring about world issues and news that happen in the world
Casual Pepper Spray Everything Cop
This meme originated from a photograph of a cop pepper spraying a group Occupy protesters. The meme is meant to ridicule the actions of the officer for strong resentment of his actions towards the protesters.
Neil deGrasse Tyson Reaction
This is the traced outline of Neil deGrasse Tyson's reaction that is often used sarcastically to mock arrogant and boastful statements. Neil deGrasse Tyson is an astrophysicist that hosts his own show that discuses recent findings of science.
Third World Success
Skeptical Third World Kid
Second Wolrd Success Kid
These are memes feature hardships that are associated with not living in a first world country
Common Rage Faces
Something to help you understand rage comics...
Memes are everywhere but internet is your most direct source.
Social networking sites such as facebook and tumblr will usually cause you to stumble upon some of them. However, if you want to get to the heart, sites like Reddit, 9gag, iwastesomuchtime will entertain you for hours. It's rather addicting really, so make sure you have a lot of free time before searching!
Slenderman
Slenderman is a scare meme that became known in 2012. It is a tall thin man that has a blank face and a black suit. Slenderman had overly long arms and was believed to harbor tenticles at his back with the ability to out stretch them. He is known to stalk children from afar and is hidden in the trees. Eventually, the meme was proven hoax, but it did create fear among people.
I refuse to provide a picture
Creepypasta
Creepypasta is a website that harbors disturbing legends true/false of things that have occurred in our society. It is known for it's frightening tales that users have posted that are complemented with horrific images. If you're fearless or just don't feel like being mentally stable for the next few days, it is the best website for you.
Nope. Not going to google image creepypasta for this slide either.
"Arrow To The Knee"
"Arrow to the knee" is a common quote often said by characters in the role playing game Elder Scroll V: Skyrim. Referring to the character once being able to do somthing, until the injury has occurred.

Later on the quote was corresponded as an old idiom that meant marriage, where the man has to get down in one knee, referring to the injury.
Overly Attached Girlfriend
Overly Attached Girlfriend is a series of photos with captions believed of stereotyped overprotective girlfriends
Some current 2014 memes that are starting to grow...
Selfies Olympics

Don't question it. I don't understand it either.
Please do not take memes seriously. They are meant as a fun past time, not something to take to the heart.
