The Real Story Behind 10 Popular Internet Memes Pt. 2


Memes usually become popular because of websites like Reddit, 4Chan, and Tumblr. From Danielle Bregoli’s ‘Cash Me Outside’ meme to ‘Side Eyeing Chloe’ who didn’t really care about her sister being excited about going to Disneyland, welcome to the meme world!

Did you know that a meme was used as an educational tool for Japanese students who were learning English? Rage Comics presented a collection of simply drawn images showing emotion. These images used to tell a story that either ended with the character being sad or angry. The characters were very simple stick figures, but their faces were absolutely hilarious. We bet you’ve used the Rage Comics memes before!

And who can forget about ‘Cash Me Ousside’, one of the most popular phrases of 2017? It belongs to Danielle Bregoli, who was just 13 years old when she became a meme after Dr. Phil Show filmed her shocking attitude. Did you know that Danielle’s meme fame could make her a millionaire by the end of 2017?

One of our favorite memes of all time is the suggestive ‘If You Know What I Mean’ meme, featuring Mr. Bean. It all started as a simple observation that if you put ‘if you know what I mean’ at the end of any sentence, you could easily change the meaning of your sentence to something else. If you know what we mean.
