    Are those memes or just jokes?

    I watched Reality Bites on Showtime the other night. I had a good laugh at the realization that, minus smartphones, we were exactly the whiny little bitches we have grown up to complain that 20somethings nowadays are.

    Except now it's Serge Ibaka telling us not to come yet.

    I'm not sure hilarious is the word I'd use

    Maybe that's why they're memes rather than jokes? The benchmark for hilarity is much lower.

    The individual captions are jokes.

    They are replicated on the Crying Dawson meme.

    Some are pretty funny.

    So if you pair a joke with an image it becomes a meme?
    I think Richard Dawkins might disagree.

    No, the Crying Dawson meme is already out there.


    It's got its own generator and everything.

    They just used that over and again to make 1990s jokes, some of which are funny and some of which are not.

    Interestingly enough, you often see Crying Dawson used as a background for another meme -- #whitepersonproblems

    I just object to the popular annexation and misuse of the word meme.

    The internet hears your objection.

    The internet don't care.

    Understood, but I still object.

    Morality is a meme. A GIF with a joke is just a joke with a visual component.
