College students spend the majority of their time online.  While most of the time students are connected to the web is spent on useful pursuits and academic achievement, there is always time for distraction. Or, shall we say, students manage to find time to study amongst all of the distractions that the web provides. One of the best ways that students are distracted is by “memes”, which is pretty much any picture or video that goes viral, and then is, of course, replicated exponentially for maximum distraction potential. Indeed, writing the article took longer than usual because I found myself trapped in the grasp of the memes  – and these are the best ones I found.

The “Regulars”

Memes come in many forms, and one of the most popular is a single photograph of a “stereotypical” student with various captions.  One is the “college freshman” meme, who is a happy young man in a university sweatshirt – various captions include “Cites Wikipedia Article” and “Does laundry for the first time – dyes” (the sweatshirt in this one is pink).  There is also the “lazy college senior” meme, featuring a scruffy lad drinking a beer, with quotes like “Doesn’t do the reading, dominates class discussion” and “Paper due in 7 hours, hasn’t decided topic”.   There is also the “college liberal”, which is a photo of a girl with long dreadlocks and features many contradicting statements such as “Hormones in milk can be dangerous, drops acid purchased from a stranger”, and “Thinks laws will keep people from owning guns, smokes pot.”  Another favorite is a woman who is in her 70’s and represents the “nontraditional” student, with quotes like “Correct history professor, remembers being there.” These memes are designed to be funny for anyone who is in college, but those who design the memes went a step further to make distractions a bit more personal.

University memes

My alma mater has its own Facebook page dedicated to memes. A popular one that recurs on that page is “unicycle girl”, because there is a student who rides around campus on a giant unicycle, and she is the butt of many memes. Many major universities have developed their own meme Facebook pages to form a sort of camaraderie for the students and alumni of the university.   There’s even a list of the top 20 colleges where memes are “all the rage”.

Left out of memes

In all of my research, I did notice that there was a sector of colleges that were left out of the meme craze. Online schools are grossly underrepresented in the meme base, and online business management schools don’t make the meme base at all. So, if students from online schools are reading this, start making memes so that online schools can be made fun of, just like the rest of colleges.

We have all been there many times throughout our lives when we just weren’t thinking clearly or at all. Whether it is the time we locked our keys in our car or turned on the blender without putting the lid back on it, no matter what it is, we have all done something when, for some reason or another, our minds were vacant.

However, there have also been times when we have witnessed other people committing such acts, where we were compelled to ask, “Seriously, what were you thinking?”

You may be imagining a flat, cardboard-like car that can only be driven by a similar type person, but instead, re-imagine the car to look a lot like the iconic Batmobile, but about half the size.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to be Batman to drive it, but, depending on your height, you may need some type of super power to fit into it. However, it is really cool to look at; thus, I guess all that is left to say is… Nanananana Flatmobile!

There are plenty of Star Wars fans that span the globe who would do almost anything to show their devotion to these films. Some purchase Star Wars collectibles or dress-up as characters from the movies, while others get glow-in-the-dark tattoos!?

Well, if you are going to have permanent ink needled into your skin, you shouldn’t only be able to see it in the light; and if you are going to get a tattoo of Yoda with a lightsaber than it better glow-in-the-dark, am I right!

Behold the glow-in-the-dark Yoda tattoo!

There have been many photos of dogs and cats that look like celebrities posted on the internet, as well as plenty of internet memes, but not too often do you see one of a cat that could be mistaken as a superhero.

This awesome cat looks just like Batman and makes me wonder if this could be Catman?? Hopefully he doesn’t have a sidekick named Robin, because that is a type of bird and that’s cruel. Muahaha. Just JOKER-ing!

Every year our friends and family gather from far and wide to sit around a table for Thanksgiving. We play a fun game of touch football, have a few laughs, give thanks, and eat until our belly hurts. I really love the nip in the air, frost on the ground, smell of turkey in the oven, and the feeling of togetherness that happens on this day. It is hard to put it all into words of how much I enjoy Thanksgiving, but this dog’s face kind of says it all.

Smile and Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I can just imagine what this grumpy Clown fish would say, “There’s a Grumpy Cat meme?… Who Cares”. This fish doesn’t look like he likes anything and could care less about most things that would make the average person or fish happy. After all, He is a fish that is called a Clown, that would make me grumpy too.
