13 workplace memes for when your job is a total drag

13 workplace memes for when your job is a total drag

TwitterFacebook

Sometimes working can feel, well, like working

While having a job is fulfilling and necessary for most, it can be a total slog at times. Bosses are bossy, coworkers are nosy, and technology only cooperates when it wants to. When work just won’t throw you a bone, know that you’re not alone. Not to quote High School Musical, but “we’re all in this together.” 

Here are 13 memes to make your workday a little easier. 

1. “Oh, I’m sorry, I must’ve forgotten that horror movie discourse isn’t my job, rather just an interesting and mildly-fulfilling hobby.”

MY BOSS: why haven’t you completed any tasks for a week and a half

ME: did you hear the news? horror movies are about grief and trauma now

The cursed St. Louis style bagel is a meme now

TwitterFacebook

Twitter has channeled its carb-loaded rage into a new meme. 

The “St. Louis style” bagel — apparently, a bagel cut into thin slices like a loaf of bread — infuriated Twitter users on Wednesday. 

It’s a special kind of sad and pathetic. 

Today I introduced my coworkers to the St Louis secret of ordering bagels bread sliced. It was a hit! pic.twitter.com/XNGbljtpYz

After the initial anger over the travesty that is sliced bagels passed, “St. Louis style” became a meme. People shared messed-up ways to consume their favorite foods — from delicately sipping coffee through a soaked napkin to feasting on boiled pizza. Read more…

The Duolingo owl is out for vengeance in these threatening memes

TwitterFacebook

If you’re learning another language, it’s time for your daily reminder — have you practiced your Español today? Your Français? Deutsch? If not, you better watch out. The Duolingo Owl may be coming for you. 

Duolingo is a language-learning app that takes a gamification approach to reaching goals in your target language. Their mascot is a cutesy little owl named Duo, who sends you daily reminders to practice. 

But what if happen you miss a day, or forget? Duo is not a very forgiving beast.

Donald Trump Jr. shared a Pornhub meme of his dad. What a cool thing to do.

Donald Trump Jr. shared a Pornhub meme of his dad. What a cool thing to do.

TwitterFacebook

Just when you thought Donald Trump Jr.’s very, very bad taste in memes couldn’t get any worse, he’s bested himself by posting a very creepy Pornhub joke about his own father. 

Don Jr. shared an odd screenshot on his Instagram Story on Tuesday. It features a well-worn Pornhub joke genre involving non-sexual videos of Donald Trump with titles that imply he’s fucking over the country — or in this case the Democratic party.

Uh...

Uh…

Hahaha, yes, making jokes about your dad having (even figurative) sex is a totally normal thing to do. He captioned the photo with, “I had to.” But did he? Read more…

Meghan McCain’s nasty wedding guest Denise is now a beautiful meme

Meghan McCain’s nasty wedding guest Denise is now a beautiful meme

TwitterFacebook

If you’re a guest at someone’s wedding, you probably shouldn’t insult them in front of thousands of people on Twitter. Just a thought.

Federalist contributor DC McAllister went after the television show The View this week in a tweet that since’s gone viralMcAllister accused the show’s guests of being “delusional mental midgets ricocheting ignorance and lack of emotional regulation.”

The only problem? McAllister appears to have been a guest at show host Meghan McCain’s wedding.

Can someone explain to me the purpose of The View? It seems to me to be a roundtable of delusional mental midgets ricocheting ignorance and lack of emotional regulationhttps://t.co/VMT4LtI1Ir via @ILMForg

Europe passes new copyright law that might change the internet forever

Europe passes new copyright law that might change the internet forever

TwitterFacebook

The European Parliament has backed a copyright reform law that aims to protect content creators from unauthorized usage of their work, but also brings forth some rules that are radically different from the way internet functions now. 

The Copyright Directive, at one point known as the law that will kill memes, was passed with 348 votes for and 278 against. The Directive has undergone many revisions before arriving at its current state, but it still has several clauses which are highly controversial. 

We welcome the adoption of #Copyright reform by MEPs #EPplenary! A strong signal for all creative sectors, press, researchers, educators & cultural heritage institutions. One solid & essential brick more to the @DSMeu! Thank you @AxelVossMdEP #ShadowRapporteurs @ro2019eu pic.twitter.com/VVRq5ejwvh

The flat stomach meme will probably just make you hungry

The flat stomach meme will probably just make you hungry

TwitterFacebook

Apparently nobody on Twitter knows what a human body looks like. 

The flat stomach meme is a horrifying ASCII attempt at depicting a side profile of someone’s body. What it lacks in anatomical accuracy it makes up for in personal attacks.  

The meme started late last week, when Twitter user @itsJWolfe tweeted emoji of all the beautifully delicious things they’ve eaten. Who needs a flat stomach when you can fill your body with bread and cheese? It’s 2019 and we’re all here to enjoy life. 

Me: I want a flat stomach

15 memes for when you’re feeling sad as hell

TwitterFacebook

Words aren’t always sufficient when you’re feeling low. Sometimes, humor can be the best medicine for a case of The Sads. 

We’re all well aware of the internet’s potential to be a little dumpster fire-adjacent at times. But at this point we can’t just click away — many of us frequently use our social media spheres as tools for coping with everything from mental health struggles to the never-ending nonsense that is the political news cycle.

But even the most well-intentioned use of internet culture for mood lifting can be fraught with bad vibes. While there are tons of self-deprecating and depression-related memes circulating the net, we think you deserve something a bit more uplifting. Read more…

This fake Mueller report is the ultimate troll

This fake Mueller report is the ultimate troll

TwitterFacebook

We got got. 

Special counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report to the Attorney General on Friday afternoon. The investigation looks into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, but despite calls for transparency from politicians, Americans, and emboldened mothers on social media, the report hasn’t been released to the public yet. 

Another report has been making the rounds, even if it’s not the one Mueller delivered to William Barr.

It’s finally Mueller Time and no one knows what the fuck is happening.

As soon as news broke late Friday afternoon, Twitter users went into full meltdown mode and began sharing their hot takes.

Meme asks what if Robert Mueller is just procrastinating?

TwitterFacebook

As we all anxiously await the Mueller report, a curious theory has emerged: What if Robert Mueller, special counsel of the Russia investigation and former director of the FBI, is just procrastinating?

On a Friday afternoon — a great time to put off work — a lot of people wrote tweets about what Mueller might be up to in his procrastination hole. Sure, they might have done these tweets instead of doing their jobs, but that only makes the tweets better and more appropriate. (I say this because I participated.)

I’ve been in Robert Mueller’s position before and let me tell you, he has not written shit
