20+ Times Memers Had A Problem With The Names Of Things

English is a weird thing to speak. Different accents, dialects and influences from several other different languages make it way more complicated than it needs to be, although that doesn't mean it has no entertainment value.

The 'Mfs Really Named This' meme points out the ludicrousness of words, and how we often seem to name things in the stupidest way possible. Whether they're mentioning a U.S. state or a mathematical concept, the setup is extremely dumb; at the same time, it's hard to argue with the logic. They might not make you start calling an underground room the Based Ment, but you've still got to admit that this meme is pretty good at pointing out how there are some funny sounding words out there.

33 Linguistic Memes For Lovers Of Language

Language and memes have a lot in common if you think about it. They're both important communication tools. Both are ever-changing foundations of contemporary culture. Both often require some context to better understand their nuances. It makes total sense that a linguist might be interested in image macros. Memes sort of function as a writing system used to tell stories—like 21st century hieroglyphics. If you're into both memes and linguistics, this batch of wordy memes about the quirks of language might be right up your alley.

Tumblr Thread Reveals True Meaning & Full Versions Of Classic Proverbs

I can't remember the first time I was told that "curiosity killed the cat" but it was probably by my mother. The petite neurotic woman was convinced that at any moment something terrible was about to happen to one of her brood. While it's been many years since I realized the adage was antithetical to a rich and full life, it wasn't until this Tumblr thread that I realized there was more to the proverb. As it turns out, the phrase is not meant to ward off healthy curiosity. The thread doesn't stop the splainin' there, either. We've never felt more sure of ourselves regarding the use of tired proverbs. Knowledge truly is power.
