  1. 1. WAS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE FUNNY? LOLCATS “An explosively popular phenomenon, lolcats are a photos of cats with a funny caption in lolspeak (also known as kitty pidgin). These captions might look completely random, but they actually have some popular sentence structures and may even contain other memes. It's believed this phenomenon originated from 4chan imageboards.” www.squidoo.com/top-10-internet-memes THE "O RLY?" OWL “O RLY? (an abbreviation of "Oh, really?") is yet another internet phenomenon in a form of image macro (although just the phrase without the picture is often used as well). It dates back to at least year 2003 when it was used on the Something Awful forums.... The phrase is often used in online forums to respond to posts in a sarcastic or mocking way. It is one of the internet memes that you are most likely to see on internet chatrooms.” www.squidoo.com/top-10-internet-memes EPIC FAIL “While fail is normally used as a verb, on the internet it has become a noun meaning a spectacular failure of some sort - basically the opposite of success, or win. It can also signify disapproval of something (such as "this movie fails", an example given by UrbanDictionary). The word "epic" is often added for a bigger effect. When the fail is so big it boggles the mind, it becomes epic; in other words, it is a failure of epic proportions.” www.squidoo.com/top-10-internet-memes YOU DON'T SAY? ““You Don’t Say?” is a rage comic face based on a contour drawing of Nicolas Cage that is that is used as a sarcastic response to an obvious observation or statement, in similar vein to “O RLY” image macros.” http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/you-dont-say PHILOSORAPTOR “Philosoraptor is an image macro series featuring a clip art of Velociraptor deeply immersed in metaphysical inquiries or unraveling quirky paradoxes. One of the more thoughtful (and successful) Advice Dog variations, Philosoraptor challenges the reader with his deep, existential, Paleolithic questions.” http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/philosoraptor CHALLENGE ACCEPTED ““Challenge Accepted” is a series of four-pane comics depicting real life situations where the character is presented with a highly difficult or dangerous task requiring blind courage, yet chooses to embrace the near-impossible challenge against all odds.” http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/challenge-accepted SOCIALLY AWKWARD PENGUIN “Socially Awkward Penguin is an advice animal image macro series featuring a penguin lacking both social skills and self esteem. The text typically narrates uncomfortable life situations, highlighting an exceptionally clumsy or inelegant response.” http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/socially-awkward-penguin RICKROLLING “Rickrolling is one of the most widespread internet memes. It involves tricking people into clicking a link to a music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song "Never Gonna Give You Up". The URL is often masked using services like TinyURL.com and said to be relevant to the topic at hand. If a person falls for the trick, then he is officially rickrolled!” www.squidoo.com/top-10-internet-meme AWESOME: http://memegenerator.net/ http://knowyourmeme.com/ HELP: AmyJ@housing.ufl.edu Twitter.com/AmyLJorgensen Facebook.com/AmyLJorgensen Linkedin.com/in/AmyLJorgensen
