Memes, memes, memes. Imagine how dull life would be without any memes! Whether it’s dull, grey, and rainy outside or the sun’s out in all of its glory, we feel like there’s never a ‘wrong’ moment for a spot of quality humor. Comedy is what picks us up when we’re down, chases away the blues, and helps us plow our way through the week towards that magical land where everything is possible—The Weekend(™).

Some of the very best, most relatable memes end up getting shared on the aptly named ‘Meme’ social media project. A veritable comedy leviathan on Instagram, as well as on Twitter, the ‘Meme’ page gives us exactly what many of us need—a laugh, a smile, and an excuse to forward funny pics to half of our friends.

We’ve collected some of the project’s best memes to share with all of you, Pandas. So scroll down, be sure to upvote the pics that you enjoyed the most, and don’t forget to drop your wittiest comments, too! And if you enjoyed what you saw, check out the project’s socials for their freshest content.

Content creator, comedian, and broadcaster Trev Lewis was kind enough to share his thoughts on memes, comedy, and relatability with Bored Panda. "The two most common types of content that go viral are animals and food. This is what the data shows. No matter how many times algorithms get tweaked, or which platform we're discussing, people remain fixated on nourishment and other creatures. We are quite animalistic in that way," he explained to us.

According to content creator Trev, humor isn't necessary for content to go viral, but it certainly helps. "Relatability is a more crucial component because this is the factor that often inspires people to share the content with others. Sharing is the highest form of engagement and the one true path to viral content. All the other forms of engagement will follow it," he told Bored Panda.

He noted that our sense of humor online continues to grow more sophisticated with time. That means that content and meme creators constantly have to adapt to the times.

"When I'm curating content for The Best and Worst Of Twitter group, I will often search for viral Tweets from the earliest days of the platform. Some of that content still holds up, but much of it does not," Trev, the founder of that particular online group, as well as others, said.

"The earliest memes were things like the 'I Can Haz Cheeseburger' cat. Cats have remained a constant, proving my earlier point a bit. They are the internet's favorite animal, and it's not even close. But the simple act of editing some text onto an image of a cat has lost its novelty."

Trev put it simply: it takes far more effort to amuse folks these days. "I suspect we will only get more creative as time marches on. There's also an interesting theory that humor is primarily a coping mechanism or even a trauma response," he said.

"As the conditions of the outside world continue to degrade, I suspect humor will be the first response from the internet. I hope my forecast brightened everyone's day," he quipped.

It would be an understatement to call the ‘Meme’ project a powerhouse. With a jaw-dropping 10.3 million followers on Instagram, as well as a further 66.3k fans on Twitter, it is absolutely massive.

The page’s success, we feel, comes down to the style of content shared. Who here doesn’t enjoy having a good laugh, after all? When you combine quick quips that are very relatable, you get a winning combination: viral pics that spread all over the net.

Love them or loathe them, memes are here to stay. At their very core, they are viral ideas that can take pretty much any format. And as long as human beings exist, so will memes.

Our sense of humor might change a bit over the years, decades, and centuries to come, but our need to laugh and poke fun at the world and current events will never go out of style. And we’re not the only ones to think so. Internet trends might come and go, but humor will always be king.

Pop culture, entertainment, and lifestyle expert Mike Sington recently shared his thoughts about viral social media content and internet trends with Bored Panda. According to the expert, some trends will definitely look weird in the future. Funny content, however, will always find an audience.

"Funny thoughts, anecdotes, and memes are popular now, and will have staying power on the internet. People often go online for escapism, and humor has always provided that. I don’t foresee that changing," media expert Mike said that humor is pretty much timeless.

"If something becomes popular quickly and seems to come out of nowhere, it’s more likely to be a passing fad," he told Bored Panda. "Long-term trends with staying power seem to build more slowly, but at a steady pace. Be careful of jumping on the 'bandwagon' yourself, just because something is popular in the moment. That’s the scenario that’s most likely to haunt you in the future.”

Something that the pop culture expert believes will change greatly in the future is people’s perception of privacy. He thinks that people will be far more aware of the details they share on the internet than they are now.

"Sharing personal photos of yourself, your life, your family, and especially your children will probably seem very peculiar in a couple of decades. People just now are becoming increasingly concerned about privacy on the internet, and it will be odd in the future to look back and see how much of ourselves we used to willingly share.”

The neverending discussion about pasta, olive oil and just putting enough water... 10g salt, 100g pasta, at least 1L water e basta così ! No oil or you ruin the pasta/sauce synergy 😃

As for the relatability of memes, you can’t expect your jokes to always land. Though dad jokes might be the closest contender for the Universally Beloved Genre of Comedy Award, even they have haters. You’ll never win over everyone with your jokes; however, you should still aim to make them relatable. After all, is it really quality comedy if the only one laughing is you?

I am concerned about my reaction to babies. All I see is a noisy, angry, mucous-splattered creature which smells of sick and has a disproportionately large head. Everybody else is like 'Aw, so cute. Looks like mommy!' and I am left to ponder what it is that they are seeing and I am not. Kittens are cute. Puppies are cute. Babies are not. Am I a monster?

When telling jokes and creating memes, the comedian has most of the responsibility for making the audience laugh. At the same time, the audience needs to have enough awareness of current social issues, the news, wordplay, and comedy itself to shoulder at least part of the burden. It’s a delicate balance. Unavoidably, some memes and quips will definitely go over the audience’s head.

Comedy expert Ariane Sherine told Bored Panda that someone who doesn’t get a particular joke means they’re not “privy to knowledge you need to understand the joke” or “it just means your brain doesn’t work in the way it needs to in order to understand that particular type of humor.” Though she noted that even the best comedians sometimes don’t get some jokes: nobody’s perfect!

"People can’t be expected to get badly-told jokes where the setup or punchline is mangled, but if the joke’s told well, it’s not necessarily the comic’s fault if another person doesn’t get it. Humor can be quite a niche and individual thing, but if a joke regularly falls flat most comics will drop it from their sets,” she said.

Isn't a dog greeting one of the best feelings in the world? He really loves you and feels compelled to demonstrate this adoration by wagging his tail as hard and fast as he can and doing a little wee on your foot.

Think to yourself "I'll just lay down for five minutes, not gonna sleep though, just rest for a mo - next thing you know you've just woke up, your mouth is drier than Gandhi's left flipflop, you've no idea what decade it is and can't figure out if the 7 showing on your watch means you're hungry because you missed dinner or hungry because you slept through breakfast time and should have left for work twenty minutes ago...
