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.
