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.

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…

This meme is the perfect reaction GIF to throw some shade on Twitter

Giant bomb

Salty reaction GIFs have a special home on Twitter. Sometimes they just work better than anything you can write in 140 characters.

Though a GIF of Giant Bomb’s video producer and podcaster Drew Scanlon has existed in the gaming community for quite some time, it has only received wide-spread internet notoriety in the last few weeks, which is fortunate, because it deserves the internet’s admiration.

As noted by the internet meme database…

New Obama/Biden memes are here to help you survive inauguration week

You can take Barack and Joe out of the White House, but you can never take Barack and Joe out of the memes.

Over the past eight years, President Obama and VP Biden have formed a lasting bromance, and with every great bromance comes some beautifully creative memes.

Having been inspired by the first round of beloved “Biden plotting against Trump” memes, the fine folks on the internet are back at it again,…

RIP, Biden memes: How the VP awakened the internet’s most earnest humor

Joe Biden is leaving office, and with him go the Biden memes.

The internet, predictably, is already mourning. Even President Obama acknowledged the end of an era as he presented Biden with the Presidential Medal of Freedom last week. “This … gives the internet one last chance to talk about our bromance,” he said. (It took that chance, heartily.)

From now till 2020, can we keep Joe Biden memes alive to make me not cry?

It’s not difficult to guess why the internet will take this loss so hard. First, and perhaps most depressingly, there’s no clear replacement: policy aside, it’s nearly impossible to imagine vice president-elect Mike Pence eating ice cream, laughing or enjoying anything.

Therein lies Biden’s appeal as a public figure: he is a serious, veteran leader who also enjoys life. Eats a sh*t-ton of ice cream. Does not eat that ice cream delicately.

And that means he’s highly meme-able.

Biden became perfect foil for President Obama, a man so poised he often seems…
