About

"Nice Meme" is an ironic expression often used as a dismissive response to poorly received content posted in circle jerk communities online in a similar vein to the phrases "dank memes" and "well meme'd".

Origin

The exact origin of the ironic usage of the phrase "nice meme" is unknown. On February 9th, 2013, the earliest archived instance on 4chan was posted to a thread in the /mu/ (music) board (shown below).[2]

On February 4th, YouTuber Reddit Circlejerk uploaded a video titled "Nice Meme," featuring an animated illustration of Barack Obama singing the phrase (shown below, left). On February 9th, Reddit Circlejerk uploaded footage of a Flappy Bird parody titled "Flappy Fedora," which plays an audio clip of a man saying "nice meme" after successfully passing a flying fedora between cans of Mountain Dew (shown below, right).



On March 9th, the single serving website Niceme.me[1] was launched, which displays the message "Nice meme!" accompanied by the same audio clip from the "Flappy Fedora" parody. On May 22nd, a Facebook[6] page titled "Nice Memes" was launched. On August 7th, YouTuber Keith Smerbeck uploaded a video titled "real nice," in which he plays the Niceme.me audio recording repeatedly while saying "nice meme" (shown below).



On September 17th, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott posted a photograph of himself posing with two young aboriginal children in Arnhem Land, Australia to his official Facebook[3] page. That day, Redditor OrangeMemes_2 linked to the photo in a post titled "Everybody let Tony Abbott know how nice his meme is by commenting 'nice meme' on this post" to the /r/braveryjerk[4] subreddit. The Facebook photo was subsequently flooded with users commenting "nice meme," gathering upwards of 2,500 comments in the next six months. That day, BuzzFeed[5] posted an article about the incident.

        This entire "Ironic memes" concept is meta as fuck. But I do personally think that it's widespread enough to be a meme.

    Once upon a time a young Don came up to his father, Jamie Dubs, to show him this meme he made. Don worked hard to make it the dankest meme he had ever scene, and was expecting Jamie to give him a "Nice meme, son" but instead Jamie gave it a quick glance before saying "Deadpool". Little Don cried fanboy tears for 69 days straight. Despite Don joining the family business and becoming one of the greatest memers of all time, his father still never said "Nice Meme". it is that desire for approval that drives Don to this day.

    Great another entry that KYM users can use to look like they exercise irony, although writing pages of JOURNALISTIC REPORTS on funny internet images, basically the most unironic, pathetic and serious thing you can do in regards to memes.

    Don't forget to comment "Nice meme :^^^)" to make your existence here seem less pathetic.

    PS: its nice to see someone using a shitpost board's oc

    /s4s/ will be the death of 4chan, and eventually, after 4chan finally dies, of good internet content as a whole.
    Only the mods can save us now, but they see their power better fit to simply delete threads they don’t like while letting shiptoasters run rampant without so much as the slightest attempt at curtail.
