It might be the only good meme: Crying Jordan, a photo of a weepy Michael Jordan, seemingly custom-made for the internet to superimpose his face onto the head of anyone who just fucked up. It’s beautifully simple, it’s viscerally funny, and by this point a large amount of the humor comes from expecting it to…
One day after the Carolina Panthers clobbered the Arizona Cardinals to earn a trip to the Super Bowl, head coach Ron Rivera cited folk wisdom by way of explaining how he wanted his team to avoid complacency and understand that the point isn’t to make it to the title game, but to win it. It didn’t make a lot of sense.
Somebody must have told Thad Matta about the Stanford shithead who won’t shut up, because the Ohio State head coach popped up behind forward Marc Loving during his Big Ten Network post-game interview tonight to shout out “HEISMAN!” a few times. It’s humorous, but you should really see the time he replied to every Big…
NL MVP Bryce Harper went on SportsCenter to take some questions from Scott Van Pelt, and when answering expressed a reluctance to become a meme. Or was that a may may? A meh meh? No matter how you spell his pronunciation, it had the ironic effect of turning Harper into, yup, a meme.
The Carolina Panthers are 7-0. But here’s something to ponder: what if the undefeated NFC South team was actually ... 6-1?
If you’ve been on the internet at all this week, you’ve been made aware of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” video, as well as the plethora of memes spawned by Drake’s dopey dancing. Some of these memes are funny, but none of them are as good as this one:
A solid meme for a Friday afternoon: Stock footage of baboons doing human things, paired with silly one-liner captions. They talk on the phone, they throw their computers, they gaze dewy-eyed into the distance and softly smack their lips in resignation. I love these goddamn baboons, and I can’t wait to share them with…
Curt Schilling’s Facebook page shares a lot of memes. Curt loves memes. Excluding the greatness that was the “Muslims are basically Nazis” sentiment, we wanted to highlight six memes that really stood out for their hot truths. A note: All of these were shared in the past three weeks and we really don’t have the heart…
While giving a speech to a gym full of kids at a youth camp, Michael Jordan encountered every 52-year-old man’s nightmare scenario: a teen with a deep understanding of internet memes.
On Jan. 13, 2014, a person with the Twitter handle @BeatinOff2Night—his current handle is @ChickenColeman2—tweeted a three-panel shot of him and a kid playing what appeared to be NBA 2K14. The game was evidently one-sided, but the caption was the best part:
Years after Swedish distance runner Mikael Ekvall crapped his shorts in the midst of a half-marathon, his photo still shows up on Facebook. You might've seen it with a "fail" caption or a demotivational poster—played-out viral image formats that were de rigueur at the time—or in any number of "world's most…
I'm sitting in an office in Manhattan a few blocks from Central Park. It's a fairly typical workday, filled with emails, trips to the coffee pot, and refreshing my sites. I'm on all the good ones: Twitter, Facebook, you name it.
Recently, the above GIF has been appearing on numerous Japanese sites. Commenters have been criticizing the woman based only on this animated image. But what's going on? Time to delve deeper.
The "World Cup logo as a sad, facepalming guy" meme has been around since the start of the tournament. When Brazil was down 5-0 to Germany, it looked like this version, via @dorybenami, would end up being the perfection of the meme. And then Brazil went ahead and conceded two more goals. So much for that.
News broke last night that, according to Wisconsin police, two 12-year-old girls recently lured a friend into the woods and stabbed her 19 times. Then, when questioned, they allegedly claimed they wanted to ingratiate themselves with "Slender Man," a monstrous urban legend created by the Internet.
It's the story of a man. A man who went to war. And then went to college. And then decked a godless shithead professor. It's a feel-good story! And it went viral among God-fearing Murkans. And then Twitter got hold of it. And then it got really good.
LeBron James is the best basketball player in the world, and he's also been known to flop from time to time. It's because of that second part that he's given birth to the latest sports-themed meme to sprout up on the internet: LeBroning. What is LeBroning? Take it away, kids!
