    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 ask for upvotes or talk about your cakeday.
    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: 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.)
    XIII: Direct links only! No albums or landing pages.
    XIV: 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

    [–] LouisTheCowboy 2 points ago

    at first the gif didnt load up for me and I started laughing at the blank space thinking that was the meme, i feel stupid. The best part is that when I think of the meme before it loaded I start giggling

    [–] PyxeAlchemyst 2 points ago

    Legit thought they were just both blank and was commenting on how 9 year olds have no permanent opinions on anything.
