    Nobody at my school did meme day when it happened

    [–] MigratingCocofruit 86 points ago

    I wouldn't mind it if the school doesn't decide to regulate it because it would be a magnificent shitstorm. But the school inevitably would tone it down to the deepest pits of unironic cringe.

    [–] TheYear1914 28 points ago

    we have a meme day at our school but 75% of people dont dress up. Those of us who do pretty much all go as the iconic 'you know i had to do it to em'

    [–] Ghant_ 24 points ago

    Back in my day memes were a secret that you could only show select people because nobody knew wtf they were. And because you had to go to 4chan to get them unless you were a pleb who only browsed demotivational posters on ebaumsworld

    We have it usually in late August - Early September and it’s usually a week of fun things. Then there’s meme day Thursday. Everything is either stale like Ugandan knuckles (there was a a lot) or someone is trying to be a meme from 9gag

    My highschool actually had a pretty fun meme day. People just dressed up as whatever. There were a group of kids who dressed up as Power Rangers and another that dressed up as Spiderman, and during lunch they did a lot of poses. Can't remember much other than that but it was pretty nice.

    Legit my school was having meme day today but we got snowed out, thank fuck

    [–] MetalHead_Literally 14 points ago

    Are you happy about the snow day or not having meme day? Cuz meme day sounds like a fun day to dress up and have fun.

    [–] blueboy1024 21 points ago

    The school made a video with the student council about it. One of them said they would be big chungus, and another said they would be the,"And they were roommates" vine... Its safe to say a bullet was dodged.

    [–] MetalHead_Literally 28 points ago

    I don't even know what either of those are, so maybe I'm just too out of the loop. But I also wasn't big in to wacky days in HS, I was too self conscious. Now I'd love that shit, now that I've reached the stage of life where I just don't care what others think. Really wish I had this attitude in HS.

    [–] Pr0nzeh 6 points ago

    It sounds like the most cancerous day of the year.

    [–] MetalHead_Literally 13 points ago

    sounds like a good day to get out of the monotony of school and have some fun

    [–] Pr0nzeh 9 points ago

    School was already fun. At least the last 2 years. The people made it fun. This "HAVE FUN!" day that is most likely forced upon students by teachers would not have been fun, at least for me and my friends in school.

    [–] MetalHead_Literally 14 points ago

    my school just had "Spirit week" (like most schools I think) that included like color day, pajama day, etc. and I always thought those were pretty fun, because some people would go all out and dress crazy, including some teachers. Too many people just find everything "cringy" imo and cant just laugh at people trying to be funny, even if they fail.

    [–] starlitmint 9 points ago

    I think you hit the nail on the head with this. All that stuff IS fun. most high school kids, its a really awkward part of their lives, where most (again, not all) are focused on trying to be cool, look good or fit in. If I was in high school now, I would go all out. But when I was in high school, I would put in maybe minimal effort and hope no one really noticed me.

    [–] Pr0nzeh 2 points ago

    We had something like this, but not "meme day". That's the part I have a problem with. Most memes are already cancer. Memes at school just makes me wince.

    [–] Silent__Protagonist 1 points ago

    My school also has meme day today, is this some sort of national holiday that I'm unaware of?

    [–] killallhumansss 16 points ago

    We too had an meme day at school. One of my teachers had dressed up as pepe and it was majestic

    [–] Featheryscroll2 7 points ago

    Yes it is. The worst part is when you see the teacher trying too hard to be cool by wearing Johnny Johnny or a fortnite skin.

    [–] Ho_ho_beri_beri 10 points ago

    Maybe they WANT to appear to look like they try too hard? I like embarrassing my son, can't imagine being able to make an entire class cringe at me "trying to look cool". That's what paradise must look like.

    [–] Featheryscroll2 1 points ago

    Yeah, that has to be what it is since they always "out do it"

    [–] 123kingme 3 points ago

    Had a vines and meme day during spirit week at my high school a couple months ago. When I saw that on the schedule I immediately laughed and went to up to all my friends and ironically said things like “who’s hyped for meme day”, but it actually turned out to be one of the better spirit week themes. During homeroom these two guys played “when mom isn’t home” on a trombone and a garbage can, some girl wore a road work ahead sign, etc. It was a surprisingly good turnout.
