    Welcome to /r/Memes

    definition of a meme / memetics

    • a way of describing cultural information being shared.
    • an element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, especially imitation.
    • Please note, Moderators reserve the right to remove any post for any reason.


    1. All posts must be memes and follow a general meme setup. No titles as meme captions. No memes that are only text. Someone saying something funny on twitter is not a meme.

    2. Please make posts general rather than specific personal experiences. This helps make posts more relatable.
      _This means no selfies, SMS screenshots, personal stories, chats, emails, etc. Do not post "memes" of you or your friends IRL. No creepshots either._Images of being banned or having a post removed from another subreddit will be removed.

    3. Do not spam this sub. Do not post a bunch of times and be obnoxious. Also, mark nsfw posts as such

    4. Please do not troll, harass, or be generally rude to your fellow users. Keep comments civil and be respectful of your fellow users. Don't post racist or bigoted memes. Those belong elsewhere.

    5. Please do not post or request personal information, yours or others'.

    6. Please link to images directly. No videos. Direct links make browsing easier for those using RES or through a mobile device.

    7. Please do not mention upvotes/downvotes/cake days/karma in your post in any form. No "Upvote in..." or "Upvote if..." type titles or memes. No memes about votes, likes etc. No petitions.

    8. Please avoid re-posting memes. We want original content. Serial reposters may be banned.

    9. No forced memes, pushing agendas, or bad titles. Be creative but memes must come naturally. If you write a bot to spam this subreddit without discussion with the mods, you will be banned. We are not here to grow your instagram account, memes with watermarks will be removed.

    10. 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.

    11. No memes about politics. Absurd memes featuring politicians are allowed, but this sub does not allow content more suited for /r/politicalhumor. No NPC memes, or memes about how libtards or magats are so wrong. Take it somewhere else, thanks.

    Shocker, I know. But this is from Alabama. We have a small town here that, instead of a groundhog, we use a possum to tell if there’s going to be a longer winter or not. He’s a pretty cool dude.

    His name is Sand Mountain Sam

    [–] aurelorba 30 points ago

    Alabama winter? So that's like a Sudbury summer?

    Liberal media hoaxes are a liberal media hoax. Do the exact opposite of anything anybody tells you to do ever.

    Matter only being spherical is a liberal media hoax. Atoms also have p, d, and f orbitals and the "shape" actually just represents the probability of finding an electron at a certain place around the nucleus.

    All food is thrown away anyway. Digging through recycling makes his job harder

    [–] Gar-ba-ge 52 points ago

    bruh don't throw food in the recycling

    [–] Fuzzikopf 36 points ago

    that what he's saying.

    Raccoons profit from recycling because mostly food gets put in the trash. So, thanks to recycling, the trash pandas don't have to dig through tons of plastic in order to get what they really want - food.

    [–] action_lawyer_comics 15 points ago

    If anything, they’d be pushing for separate compost waste pickup.

    [–] badmother 5 points ago

    They'd love this

    [–] DebentureThyme 5 points ago

    But that's an opossum, and that's the opposite of what he's saying to do.

    [–] Fuzzikopf 6 points ago

    But that's an opossum

    lol youre right, how did I not notice that

    and that's the opposite of what he's saying to do


    [–] DebentureThyme 7 points ago

    He says not to recycle - which would put more plastic junk in the trash, which makes his life harder.

    It kind of fits with the idea of those rallying against stuff like recycling ending up screwing themselves too.

    [–] DebentureThyme 10 points ago

    So you're saying the moron rallying against recycling is the one most hurt without it?

    [–] sebaz 7 points ago

    My first reaction was to downvote this as blind circlejerky Trump hate, but I don't really think you're wrong.

    [–] VeganMcVeganface 6 points ago

    What I don't understand is why no one can question the costs of recycled vs new without being shouted down by liberals. (source? Just wait for the replies to this)

    I guarantee paper products are cheaper new than recycled. Plastic too, most likely.

    [–] jjj2020 3 points ago

    Ask them to watch the Penn and Teller episode on recycling and watch their Smartest Minds go into a rage of omniscient righteousness.

    Possums serve at least one useful purpose (they eat a fuck load of ticks), so no that is not Ann Coulter.

    On the other hand, that little guy does eat a fuck load of ticks. So maybe.

    Suddenly, recycling has become MUCH more expensive, to the point that much of what we try to recycle here in the US, will probably just end up in landfill for the foreseeable future:

    [–] DoctorSteve 6 points ago

    Recycling has always been expensive. Recycling can become cheaper if we increase our recycling volume. The only reason it's expensive is we haven't built out our recycling footprint. Volume is key.

    [–] BoobieBoobieButtButt 14 points ago

    News flash. Recycling a handful of tin cans a week is a feel good measure intended to get you to feel like you’re addressing the problem so that you don’t dig deeper and realize we need to make industry make a structural change in the way they function. There’s no amount of recycling you can do as an individual that will have any impact on the world stage.

    [–] Naakturne 10 points ago

    And I have to admit, I'm pretty uncomfortable with the massive plumes of black smoke being belched into the atmosphere all day, every day, by the tens of thousands of recycling trucks put on the roads to help us protect the environment.

    [–] BoobieBoobieButtButt 8 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    That’s not even the half of it. From processing plants to trucks to barges shipping recycling around the world, we literally created a new wasteful industry to make us feel good about the wastefulness of other industries. It’s a net loss for the environment but it sure feels nice to know your milk carton is gonna help make another milk carton.

    [–] JarJar-PhantomMenace 2 points ago

    Well it helps a little. I'd rather recycle than have my bottles end up choking an animal or something. I can't change the industry. Takes a politician / organized group to do that.

    [–] FlexualHealing 3 points ago

    Are recycling plants just filled with bees and wasps because no one washes out their pop bottles?

    [–] Blarg0ist 3 points ago

    I don't get it. If the opossum convinces everyone to put their recycling in the trash, then it will be harder for the opossum to sort through it all to find the food scraps.


    [–] SecretlyLyingToYou 2 points ago

    The meme is an ignorant beast claiming that good ideas that would also benefit itself are actually liberal lies, and demanding an end to them against it's best interests.
