hi there HorribleGhost. Here on KnowYourMeme we try our best to be objective in our meme entries which in most cases, because of the nature of the Internet, it is a really hard task to accomplish. Yes the Internet is racist, sexist (and other -ists). We have a duty to document popular Internet culture no matter how politically incorrect it might be. But we’re trying to document these as objectively and SFW as possible.

in Greek we’ve got loads of neologisms deriving from English. Just add the suffix -aro (-αρω) to turn it into a verb. For example “spam-aro” (σπαμάρω) means “I spam”. Also, “troll-aro” (“τρολλάρω”) means “to troll”. Another word I can think of is “to download”. In Greek it’s “κατεβάζω”, literally meaning “to take down”, which I’m guessing is a direct translation. Same with “to upload” (“ανεβάζω” = “to take up”)
109. The ratio of own-meme promotions to actual memes in submissions is 32:1
The “porn” suffix is used as a suffix to mean beautifully manipulated images. For example SpacePorn are high quality images of planets, nebulae, stars etc. See this: Same with EarthPorn, VillagePorn, MachinePorn, AbandonedPorn and many others
The Know Your Meme project started in December 2007 as a limited-run video series created by Kenyatta Cheese, Elspeth Rountree, Jamie Wilkinson, and Andrew Baron. The website, titled Know Your Meme: Internet Meme Database, was started as a supplement to the series and contains more than 1300 entries that are “confirmed” memes as of October 2012 --Wikipedia
a pair of headphones. I dunno what are you going to use them for but that’s what I got
there seems to be a trend of weird subtitles between square brackets
and of course “circlejerk” itself.
Canadians apologising. not sure if it’s reddit only but there you go
United Kingdom: Pros: universities, good jobs Cons: the weather, the cuisine (cranberry in a burger? really?)
Abnormalities gain attention. Scan through the list of memes on the site and count how many memes are due to grammatical errors, mistranslations or just someone being plain stupid. Just like in real life, ideas (“memes”) that have something that we can condescend upon, will make us feel superior and thus we spread it.
looks a lot like work-safe porn but seems OK. go for it
Not really. these are instances of known memes, not memes themselves.
of course I did! But no luck
I’ll answer this question even though it seems a bit agressive. Savvas is a greek given name, and because greek names are usually written in greek letters there is no confusion between vv and w, because vv is ββ. I feel like this becoming the longest AMA thread on KYM
Believe it or not it was given to me. I guess they REALLY liked the entry I wrote for Rage Comics, they decided to give an extra title of “rage comicologist”. To be fair, I did some really thorough research for that entry…
Necrobumped again? Oh well… I guess admins really liked the entries I wrote for some memes, so they made me a mod
anyone have any idea of the origin etc? any help would be appreciated
