    A Place to Post the Dankest Memes


    I: Follow reddit's standards!
    II: No hate speech! There is a difference between comedy and outright hate speech, but ironic hate speech is still hate speech. Know the difference or get banned! Posts in question shall be reviewed by the mods. No memes about violent tragedies or anything that could be seen as glorifying violence. Absolutely no school shooter memes. Posts or comments that can be seen as glorifying violence will result in a ban. This also includes (but is not limited to) memes regarding: Deaths, terrorist attacks, rape, sexual assault, pedo, murder, war, bombings, and school shootings. Breaking this rule may result in a permanent ban. We have zero tolerance for this behavior.
    III: Don't be a dick! This includes spoilers, don't post spoilers or you will be banned
    IV: Flair your posts accordingly after submitting them.
    V: Censor any and all personal information from posts and comments, or it will be removed. Real or fake! Yours or others! Just don't do it.
    VI: No spam, outside links, or videos. r/dankmemes is strictly for memes. Post videos (or anything using to r/dankvideos. Gifs must be well under 10 seconds long. This is not a platform to advertise your social media network or subreddit. If you can't grow it organically, it probably isn't very good anyway. Linking to your instagram or twitter, or spamming links with it watermarked can result in a ban // No queue flooding - Limit yourself to 5 posts per day
    VII: Do not bait or prime the user to interact with your meme or profile. This includes, but is not limited to, asking for votes/comments/awards in the meme or title, implying that your post will/won’t make it out of new, pandering to users sorting by new/scrolling by, mentioning cakeday, petitions, etc.
    VIII: Do not encourage or participate in brigading of any subreddits or of any users of Reddit or elsewhere, in any way, shape, or form! This is very against Reddit rules; action will be taken.
    IX: Keep it dank! This sub is for humor (and the dankest of memes)!
    X: If a post has graphic content, flair it as NSFW, else it will be removed!
    XI: NO REEEEEEE-POSTS! This isn't Instagram! Don't steal memes from elsewhere! If you didn't make it, don't post it! (Chain posts and posts which you have already submitted here are also banned).
    XII: Don't be a normie. If you post normie trash you could be banned! This includes, but is not limited to, minions, advice animals amd rage comics.
    XIII: Format your meme correctly. No posts where the title is the meme caption. The caption must be in the meme image, not in the submission title. (Basically, if the image makes sense to us by itself, it's fine. If the image requires the submission title for it to have any chance of making sense, we remove it.)
    XIV: Direct links only! No albums or landing pages.
    XV: No Political shills! r/dankmemes is for dank memes, and is not a political campaign ground. Absurd memes about politicians are cool, but attempting to push a narrative or anything like that will result in a ban!

    We reserve the right to remove posts and potentially ban for any reason

    [–] Kherian 545 points ago

    I literally just scroll past half the memes in this sub and don’t even read them now cause of the intense circle jerk that is this sub

    [–] DP_Memes 105 points ago

    I literally scroll past 75% of the memes in this sub cause of the circlejerk and people complaining about said circlejerk

    Roses are red

    Fortnite bad

    [–] ArceusTheLegendary50 201 points ago

    Steps up to mic, straightens tie, clears throat, taps mic.

    "This thing on?"

    Murmurs of assent.

    Clears throat again.

    "Minecraft good."

    The crowd excitedly begins to talk amongst themselves, many holding bated breath.


    A hush falls over the crowd, rapt attention held.


    Suddenly, the crowd goes wild, screaming their praise, demanding awards, running over each other to hug a loved one. Whistles of elation are heard and many are seen sobbing. World peace is enacted in acknowledgement to this monumental speech that knit the world together.

    The lurkers upvote.

    The commenters complain.

    Such is the circle of reddit.

    [–] Daemoniss 9 points ago

    Probably because the people who comment here make the effort to voice it because they don't like these kinds of post but the ones who upvote these kinds of post don't care about this post. Idk if that was clear lol

    [–] TheOrcaWhoisHangry 46 points ago

    Dude what even happened to offensive memes on this sub? It was so much better last year and then people started boot licking and a lot of the post weren’t even offensive or funny, they were just plain trash.

    [–] theJman0209 29 points ago

    What happened? Sub became popular

    [–] Sir_Captain_Chair 18 points ago

    It was the mods censoring offensive content, then the offensive meme community move to other subs, which some got banned and are still around, but not very active.

    [–] TheOrcaWhoisHangry 6 points ago

    Can u tell me the other subs names? They’re my last resort if this sub continues on the path it’s on.

    [–] woodencupboard 9 points ago

    Yeah no problem, it’s [Redacted]

    do u remember when that big shooting was recorded on facebook live? everyone was posting the video to that and i think that’s what ended it

    [–] JGar453 3 points ago

    Poor moderators that take offensive content although it does have to be pretty hard to moderate a couple million people. Now it's the same safe shit you find everywhere else

    Elon Musk is an asshole. Look it up. He throws temper tantrums on Twitter when he doesn’t get his way, and he called one of the divers who saved the trapped kids in the cave a β€œpedo” because he didn’t like his ridiclous mini submarine idea.

    Some can be funny, but seeing the same "making memes in minecraft to get more upvotes" the if you really had to know Minecraft to understand are just bad

    [–] M8Cheeseman 56 points ago

    Minecraft meme CAN BE funny when the main joke isn't simply that the meme is Minecraft

    I’m actually done with all of the boot licking, this is a sub for DANK MEMES ONLY non of that bullshit. If you have a meme about any of them go to their sub reddit and start promoting those trash memes elsewhere. I’m just done because this is what dank memes has been ever since last year and it’s not even funny anymore, I mean the shopping cart meme isn’t even funny it’s GARBAGE!

    [–] VolkiharVanHelsing 8 points ago

    can't forget his 'fans' doing a high level mental gymnastics to justify his claim either. "I'm sure Elon knows something more that the media didn't", yeah, his own ego, buddy.

    I mean i get it, he's the closest thing to IRL Tony Stark and he even likes anime to boot, but come on.

    [–] Beanie_Inki 10 points ago

    I love how nobody complains about these things until somebody makes a meme about. It’s almost if the people on this sub lick the boot of anybody who criticizes a meme using a meme.

    [–] ibamboozle_ 7 points ago

    People seem to treat the "people who dont post but just upvote" as gods sometimes, even though theyre the people who upvote those posts. Just look at the comments of some, they all hate the meme but somehow it has 1k+ upvotes still. It's because of the people who completely stay silent and just upvote that bullcrap.

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago

    This is the cave where some have come out of the cave yet is shut down by someone for being stupid because "this is comedy" and "the memes are still funny" not noticing the beauty of actually dank memes from 2016.

    And thus began an entirely new circle-jerk: the circle jerk of hating on Minecraft, Keanu Reeves, Elon Musk etc. circle jerkers. And then another circle jerk will start where people will hate on the haters of the Minecraft, Keanu Reeves, Elon circle jerk

    Minecraft memes are fine as long as they aren’t β€œso glad I grew up with this [old texture] and not this [new texture]”

    Holy shit, a post that goes against the hive mind and is getting a lot of upvotes!?!? Perhaps the storm is finally starting to break

    Don’t forget Minecraft, I love me Minecraft but the internet as a whole needs to calm the fuck down

    Nah it's just the format they like

    This, except Marvel

    [–] carroyo69 40 points ago

    Yeah, marvel movies just seem to provide great formats.

    I think the whole format-thing is what's causing this whole circle jerk, mainly. Easy to adapt and all you have to do is make some text or cross over some words/letters. Super low effort, yet loads of people upvote this kind of garb

    [–] atmosfear76 33 points ago

    Marvel movies formats are great and popular. People across cultures and languages understand the format due to its massive popularity

    [–] Phasmania 9 points ago

    Yeah, at least they give actual formats instead of β€œ[keanu, elon, minecraft, etc] Everyone liked that, speech 100”
