Some memes and Tweets to celebrate today's release of the newest installment in the Super Smash Bros universe!
Warning: spoilers ahead!
If you're keen on wasting time, let us introduce you to the Facebook page Crossovers Nobody Asked For. The premise of this shitposting group is simple: people share memes and photos featuring themes and items that really didn't need to be combined. Many of these combine 2 memes in one, making the memes extra meta. If you like what you see, and are partial to anime memes, definitely give the group a follow.
If you've spent any time on the internet, you've probably seen this sad dude Powerpoint photo. It's definitely something that resonates amongst college students during finals, and now it's become an exploitable dank meme. The meme is used as a soapbox for unpopular opinions, such as the defense of Ready Player One. Looks like this could be the latest incarnation of that Stephen Crowder "Change My Mind" meme. We're not complaining.
Another week, another shitposting trend. Everyone's favorite Christmas tradition is now part of the latest fad. Starting last week, people on Twitter and Reddit have been creating memes with the text "You've heard of elf on the shelf, now get ready for" accompanied by an image of another rhyming situation. Nintendo characters have been especially popular: think photos like Link in a sink, Waluigi on a squeegee, Princess Peach on a beach.
Because the format is so simple (and many would argue, stupid) these rhyming memes have spread like wildfire. Here are some of our favorites.
It's looking like stock photo memes aren't dying anytime soon - but we're not complaining. This trending meme uses a photo of a man unabashedly ogling a woman right in front of his girlfriend.
The format was first used to describe today's youth checking out "socialism", much to the chagrin of "capitalism". It's proven to be a useful analogy for many more situations. Here are our favorites.
So nostalgia, such wow. Damn. Looks like we're all going to be playing Zelda come holiday season after all, but just not the one we originally anticipated. The mini-NES will be sold at $60, and come pre-installed with 30 classic games.
It’ll also come ready with an HDMI cable, a power adapter, and what Nintendo's now calling an NES Classic Controller, “patterned after the iconic design of the original NES controller.” It’ll be out in stores on November 11.
This is the full list of games, via Nintendo:
