Memes that make you go hmm 🤔

Recommended Posts

[Meta-post]

"Meme" is a shortened form of mimesis, meaning a representation of life through art or literature. The concept of a meme has expanded in modern times (mimesis comes from the 16th century) to include the notion of a representation of culture that is rapidly spread from individual to individual, now facilitated by the internet's capacity to swiftly transmit duplicated words and imagery. One person's visual representation of his or her idea about reality or society can be rapidly propagated among a wide network of individuals, becoming an idea common to all.

I find some memes more like a stiff poke in the eye than anything else.

Ah. Well, those weren’t the type I was hoping for when creating the post. 

Hence, the title : memes that make you think. Is what I was hoping for anyway.

It's not that the "coolface" meme doesn't make me think; it just makes me think things like: "The devil makes work for idle hands" or "The person who drew this is an imbecile".

 

But some memes, such as the ones folks in this thread are sharing, are actually worth seeing, so let us now return the thread to those...
