they need to remove the hand drawn ones. I've yet to see a single funny one. and the whole Le Me thing makes me want to punch the artist in the face.

They make me feel proud to have the opportunity to grow up in an age where one person's idea / creation can be shared with the world.

Remember Kids stop using your cell phone scooters and use only approved memes:

Peace Sign, Bunny Ears, and Fake Wiener.

Like certain songs, sometimes memes will get old if they're used a bit too often.

However... there is one that will never get old. 60's Spiderman. :p

When my mom completely seriously asked me if something Asian she was looking at in a fashion magazine was like that "Gangbang style" thing I stopped liking internet stuff going mainstream.

meme's are horribly geeky and excruciatingly cringeworthy. So yes, it bothers me when they go into the mainstream because I hate seeing them. It reminds me that there's still a lot of people out there who have shockingly embarrassing senses of humour! Because 99% of memes aren't even humorous let alone funny.

Mainstream memes are not a problem.
People who think they're cool because they use memes are, especially if they use the wrong memes and do not know where the memes they use came from.
