We are currently living in what I like to call, "The Age of the Meme". In this age, seemingly nothing is off limits when it pertains to becoming the internet's joke of the week. It doesn't matter if it's a kids show or a serious real life event, if the internet says so, it will become a meme. Certain shows and movies have been the subject of memes more often than others. While some subjects may get a meme or two, these subjects have seemingly dozens of meme's dedicated to them. Today, we are going to look at five of the prominent meme factories in pop culture:
5. Anything Disney
With a culture as deprived as the internet's, you know that something like Disney is going to be the subject of many memes. Many of these memes like to poke fun at some of the small details in Disney films, such as the phallic imagery in the Little Mermaid poster. However, like most memes, there are plenty of Disney memes that revolve around perfectly captured frames, such as the Pacha "just right" memes.
4. Marvel Cinematic Universe
The movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are known for their clever sense of humor. Thus, they all make for good sources for memes. Most of the memes based on the MCU focus on some the franchises funniest one-liners and quips. Some of the most prominent memes are centered around lines such as:
"I'm Mary Poppins, y'all!"
"I understood that reference!"
and of course, "WAKANDA FOREVER!!!!".
3. Sonic the Hedgehog
The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise is an..... interesting one. Despite presenting one of the most famous video game characters of all time, the franchise hasn't turned out many quality games in recent years. Despite that, the franchise stills maintains a devoted fan base with some...... equally as interesting characters. So yeah, you can see why it gets meme'd a lot. Just don't look up Sonic fan art.
Also, do you know da wae?
What more can say but:
[insert Shrek is Love, Shrek is Life reference here]
Aside from being a master fry cook, SpongeBob is also the King of Memes. There have so many memes based around SpongeBob that its hard to keep track. There's Dabbing Squidward, Mocking SpongeBob, Confused Mr. Krabs, the "SpongeBob portrays" YouTube videos, and so much more. It won't be long until every single frame of this show becomes a meme.
