Sweet Memes

Once again, Ted Cruz’s face is a meme

Have you ever seen anyone more meme-able than Sen. Ted Cruz?

He’s been the “ultimate humiliation” guy, the Zodiac Killer and now his loving glare at Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch has caught the internet’s eye and sent it, once again, into a full meme-ification spiral.

Northwestern’s crying young fan is all of us watching our brackets get busted

March Madness can be absolutely brutal.

At the end of the day, only one team is going to earn the national title. This means 63 sets of hopes and dreams will get crushed along the way.

Northwestern’s journey through the madness was the program’s best ever, considering they’ve never made it to the NCAA tournament before. But the road ended on Saturday when Northwestern fell to top-seeded Gonzaga 79-73.

While the loss was sad, it became gut-wrenching after a controversial call by the game’s officials. Northwestern was in the midst of a game-changing scoring run when a dunk was blocked by Gonzaga. Replay showed that Gonzaga’s defender had reached through the net to block the shot, which should have been ruled a foul.

It wasn’t, and Northwestern’s head coach went ballistic, running onto the court in protest. Unfortunately, that action drew a technical foul. Gonzaga went on to seal the victory.

Predictably, Twitter heaved into an uproar when…

Meryl Streep meme is helping the internet gleefully shout things

Cherished actress, political activist, wonderful eye-roller: Meryl Streep is a woman of many cultural roles. Now, she joins the ranks of other greats as a big, bright, beautiful meme.

An old picture from the 2015 SAG awards shows the inimitable actor shouting through closed hands. The internet wisely chose to use this pic as a way to shout out the things they most want to shout.

Fave songs everywhere are getting a Meryl accompaniment.

The internet finds a brilliant way to troll Sean Spicer and his green tie

Poor Sean Spicer just cannot catch a break with his fashion choices these days.

First, it was his upside-down House of Cards flag pin, then it was his foot brace with a funky striped sock and now he’s at it again with this stained green tie in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

The fact that Sean Spicer gave a press briefing with a stain on his tie fits with literally everything I know about him. pic.twitter.com/Jsl1zrBY0Y

How do you pronounce the weirdest emoticon on the internet? The debate continues to rage

It’s a question that’s more than three years old, but we’re still asking it today: How do you pronounce ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)?

Some questions, it seems, are nearly impossible to answer. This one has spawned a series of YouTube videos all striving for a conclusion to the debate. The meme simply refuses to go away.

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°), known as Le Lenny Face on 4chan, appears everywhere nowadays. It got its start in forums and message boards, where it was used to spam the original poster or the discussion in general. The meteoric rise of ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) on the internet led to this video.

The video features the Lenny Face dancing around in sync to the lyrics of “Booty Man” by Tim Wilson….

OMG it’s all happening: Joe Biden has a favorite meme about his bromance with Obama

ATTENTION, INTERNET: Joe Biden has a favorite Obama bromance meme.

With literally thousands to choose from, the former vice president and America’s actual sweetheart Joe Biden has made an official selection of his favorite meme with his BFF(AE), America’s other actual sweetheart Barack Obama.

Biden’s daughter Ashley told Moneyish that she introduced her dad to the Internet’s storm of memes about he and Obama’s friendship and that, upon the discovery, he “sat there for an hour and laughed.” (This could not…

Thanks to Wikileaks we can all laugh at the CIA’s collection of bad memes

Wikileaks dumped a huge cache of CIA documents and files this morning in the first of a series of Vault 7 leaks, and in doing so, showed the world the agency’s horrible taste in memes.

The whole leak, codenamed “Year Zero,” can be viewed via torrent download. When you check out all the files on your PC, you’ll find more than just zipped documents and PDFs. There’s a whole array of .gifs and .jpgs too — and most of them are memes. Old, lame memes, for the most part.

Here’s a quick look at some of the memes that came along with the dump. You’ll see they include everything from Boromir’s “One does not simply…” warning to a pipe-smoking baby.

These memes are kind of lame.

These memes are kind of lame.

The leak sadly does not contain a reason why the CIA would want an enormous database of memes, but it can be assumed that the agency might have used them to translate all the civilian internetspeak that flew over their heads or even for interagency use. Many of…

Denny’s tweets pretty clever, internet-approved ‘zoom in on the nose’ meme

Brands, especially fast food brands, are usually pretty terrible at using pop culture references to sell their product. Any time they try to use a meme, it just comes off as sad and derivative.

But every once in a while, we see a brand apply a meme so effectively that we just have to give them the respect that they are due.

Denny’s has earned this distinction for a tweet that they shared on Wednesday. It uses the “zoom in on the nose” meme everyone has been obsessing over so accurately and so hilariously that it got over…

‘Zoom in on the nose’ meme is guaranteed to improve your self-esteem

Dogs are good. They are nice. They are the internet’s saving grace.

And they’re at the heart of the pure new “zoom in on the nose” meme from @SNCKPCK, which blesses you with a delightful photo of a dog, then whisks you away on a fun scavenger hunt for a compliment. What’s not to love?

Take this good friend, for example. Zoom in on…

Steve Harvey slyly jokes about Oscars blunder after everyone drags him into it

As you probably know by now, a monumental mistake occurred at the end of the Oscars on Sunday night.

La La Land was announced as winner of Best Picture, and the entire cast and crew had already gone up to the stage to accept the award before it was discovered that in fact Moonlight was the rightful winner.

We now know the blunder was the result of presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty having been given the wrong envelope. However, in the heat of the moment, responses and reactions were flying fast and hot on Twitter, and inevitably Steve Harvey was mentioned. He was mentioned many times.

What does Steve Harvey have to do with the Oscars? Well, nothing. But Harvey has become the whoopsie poster child for mistaken announcements on very public stages.

In 2015, Harvey was the…
