Social media: I’m not sure if there is anything I can or ever will love and hate so much at the same time. It is so convenient to keep up with current events, culture, and what my friends are up to. On the other hand, I feel like it is consuming, distracting, and mostly filled with garbage that makes me want to live in an Amish community for the rest of my life. Yet, there are special moments where the planets align and a perfect storm of circumstances create viral memes or videos that are genuinely funny. The peanut butter baby video, crying Michael Jordan or the History Channel alien guy memes are flawless examples. In 2016, we were blessed with the blurry Mr. Krabs meme, and it has been a goldmine of comedy. As a college student, I do not think there is a more versatile way to describe moments in our lives than with this legendary meme from our beloved childhood friend.
