Mace Windu Vs. Wallace Palpatine Is A Brilliant Meme Mashup

Well, we've got to add this one to the list of meme mashups that seriously surprised us but work extremely well. The photo used for the meme is from Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, a scene during which Mace Windu confronts Emperor Palpatine. In this meme, however, Palpatine is replaced by a very unthreatening image of Wallace from the Wallace and Gromit series of movies. The juxtaposition is hilariously absurd, perfect for self-deprecating memes. We've put our favorites in this gallery, but you can read more about this meme over at Know Your Meme.

Memers Go Back To School With Preachy Reading Time Sh*tposts (16 Memes)

We love a tongue-in-cheek shitpost that takes us back to "the good old days," and boy, does this one check both of those boxes. Harkening back to our childhood school days with references to "independent reading time" and "silent reading time," these memes take the tone of a teacher's pet, and they're pretty freaking hilarious. To make things even funnier, the memes use Impact ironically - a touch that really takes things to the next shitpost-y level. We've scraped the hallowed halls of Know Your Meme for our favorites, but we expect to see more of these in coming days. And we ain't mad about that.

Simon Cowell's 'New Look' Is Getting Roasted & Toasted On Twitter

We may not be medical professionals but we definitely know when someone has gotten work. It's baffling that someone in the spotlight would undergo serious cosmetic procedures and think their fans wouldn't notice, but it keeps happening. Yesterday, after photos from the red carpet were released, Simon Cowell went from being a judge to being judged - and harshly. The notoriously cranky English judge of America's Got Talent has been on our television screens since 2001, and many fans were shocked at his transformation. 

It's pretty obvious to most people that Cowell has gotten work done, though he's attributing his new look to his vegan diet and weight loss. Perez Hilton seems to think otherise: "I'm going with: new veneers, fillers in the cheek, Botox in the forehead and a possible eye job too! What do U think of the new Simon Cowell???" We're inclined to agree. And judging by these hilarious reactions to the dude's face, so is Twitter.
