Oh, angel sent from up above
You know you make my world light up
When I was down, when I was hurt
You came to lift me up
And said read a Meme from me, Meme from me
When I was so thirsty
Pour on a Memephony
Now I just can’t get enough.
Okay, I probably shouldn’t try my hand at lyrics. But you get my point, right? Memes, or as some people call it, “Maymay”, are the best thing to happen to us! While the world is so busy being mundane and tiresome, memes are one of the very few things that keep the sense of humor in us alive to a much-needed extent. Though memes have become quite popular in the recent times, the word “Meme” was actually coined way back in 1976 by Richard Dawkin in his book The Selfish Gene, to explain the spread of cultural information. Whatever it is, we can’t possibly thank enough for the creation of memes. Let me just take a few minutes of your life to explain why memes are pure love.
Memes are Relatable:
There is no single situation for which you can’t find a relevant and relatable meme! Feeling hungry? There’s a meme for that. Wanna shout at someone passive-aggressively? There’s a meme for that. Your partner broke up with you? Well, sorry to say, but there’s a meme for that too. Basically, there’s a meme for anything and everything. And because they are so easy to find and so easily understood, we can use them to relate to any situation.
The Story of My Life
Memes Bring Out Your Creativity:
Anyone who enjoys reading and exchanging memes has surely tried to create memes. At least I have made gazillion memes featuring my friends (Which is why I don’t have friends now 😶). To come up with the perfect meme that suits a situation requires great creativity. And if you manage to create a perfect meme, well, you’re no less than God himself.
Fun Fact: People call me “Memesahab” these days. 😶
Memes Help Friendships Grow:
Well, this is no secret as to how many friendships are built with the foundation of memes. Memes are more responsile for friendship than anyhing else. They are great ice-breakers. Plus, people get to know your fun side. Anddddd, of course, we all have that set of friends who are frequently tagged in all possible memes, and who do the same to us as well. Meme friendships are so dope, that at one point, all that you and your friends do is just tag each other in memes. 🤷♀️
Memes are Great Saviors:
You know how you sometimes don’t want to talk to someone, but they keep irritating you with texts? Well, we have memes for our rescue. Exchanging memes are wayyy better than pointless gossips. Memes are every introvert’s true friend. You don’t have to talk. Just find a meme, and keep exchanging memes back and forth. 🤷♀️
Memes Light Up the Mood:
Memes are an awesome way to lighten up the mood after a long, hectic day. Take a look at one dank meme, and you’re laughing like a hyena. Also, memes present even the most serious of things in the funniest way, which more or less shifts the tension. Who wouldn’t want to love such a trend!
Memes Help You Express Better:
Memes help you express your opinions in a way better and lighter way than anything else. Because they are mostly funny, there ain’t any risk of anyne getting upset or offended. And, of course, you get to make your point. Oh! I wonder what the world would have been if not for memes!
I can go on and on and on talking about why memes have a special place in our lives. But then, I’ve got some real dank memes that I gotta exchange with my meme gang. If you’re a meme lover, hit up the comments section below.
ALL HAIL MEMES!
