Everyone has heard of the yodeling kid or Spider-man’s death in “Avengers: Infinity War.”  Something as simple as a kid singing a song at Walmart or a superhero dying in a movie can be turned into a meme. Memes are basic entertainment for many students in high school.

A new meme emerges every week and is passed around in school over social media until it dies out and is no longer funny, maybe even annoying. It is soon replaced by a new meme in an endless cycle of memes.

“Memes are all over social media. Every single time I go on Instagram my feed is full of them. I watch them, my friends watch them, even my mom watches them,” junior Alejandro Murillo said.

Current events are great sources for making memes. Meme creators take a current event and turn it into something funny and since it’s trending, many people understand the joke.

“I guess you just try to find something that is both relatable and funny to everyone while using the current event to describe it for example  I’ve made memes of Zuckerberg being a lizard, Youtube’s demonetization, and the I.D. problem at school. I have made over a hundred memes and still making more,” junior meme creator Felix Piña said.

The school year consisted of many memorable memes. Everyone has one meme they remember and enjoy regardless of how many times they have seen it.

“My favorite meme would be “Dat Boi” which is a frog riding a unicycle. It has been my favorite ever since I first saw it and it makes me laugh every single time,” junior Angel Ocon said.

Out of thousands of memes that emerged this year, only around a hundred became very popular. These include the secret FBI stalker, Super Bowl Selfie Kid, Spongebob NoPants, Mark Zuccerberg, Yodeling Kid, and most recently, the Halo theme song.

“This has been a great year for memes. Many of them were made and I loved most of them,” Murillo said.
