It's time to take a dive into the niche world that is American internet comedy, where the humor is almost as big as the burgers. These funny memes show that, for better or for worse, the USA and its people are one-of-a-kind. From pop culture references to posts about Average Joes Average Joeing, get ready to laugh at on-point memes that accurately represent all of the nation's quirks.
Oh, Here We Go Again
The woman in this picture, now internet famous, clearly didn't realize that buffalos can run up to thirty miles an hour and have no issues trampling tourists in the wild. She might have gotten confused with a petting zoo when they drove past the giant creature, or she depends on the nine lives that she could potentially have. If that's the case, good for her, but we don't recommend wasting one in this manner.
This tourist either has a hidden death wish or has got a serious case of buffalo fever since she basically strolled right up to one of the most dangerous animals.
We'd Definitely Watch This
If this kid is taking any suggestions when it comes to choosing a name for this television show, we think that "Beyond the Curve" would work really well. One could only imagine the challenges that the contestants would encounter as they travel to find the edge of the world. The expedition would undoubtedly be a wild one, where searching for the ultimate truth and falling off the edge of reason takes a whole new level.
After likely watching a ton of reality TV shows, this genius 11-year-old imagination really did come up with a television show pitch that is quite literally out of this world.
License Plate Rebellion Gone Wrong
Imagine driving down a great American highway, listening to your favorite music, when a car pulls up beside you, and their license plate says this. Clearly, whoever chose to have "antigov" written on their license plate has a bone to pick with authority or isn't a fan of general bureaucracy. Either way, the irony here is really shining through. This is mainly because they had to pay the government extra money to make this.
It isn't too hard to figure out what this driver is trying to say, but there is so much irony going on here that it's difficult not to point it out.
And Just as She Predicted, People Didn't Understand
Science puns certainly create a universe of amusement amongst a school topic that might not always be considered interesting. Do some people roll their eyes at science puns? Sure, but that's only because they haven't realized how funny they are. This internet poster used her words wisely, to the point where the rest of the internet truly appreciates the joke here. Whether it's biology or chemistry, a joke or two is greatly appreciated in the science world.
It's safe to say that science puns are a laboratory of laughter, and although they might be a bit nerdy, there's no denying that they're a pretty good source of humor.
Weird How Florida Ounces Are Used in the Other States, Too
It seems like this person thought that the abbreviation for fluid ounces decided to take a tropical vacation in the state of Florida, only to realize they were entirely incorrect. The wonders of the internet are really shining through here- you can practically post whatever you want, but someone will eventually show up to prove you wrong. Also, who knew that a simple measurement could turn into a joke that's actually something to laugh about?
Someone out there in our great big world, or more specifically, America, mistook the common abbreviation for fluid ounces as Florida ounces. The internet will simply never let this one go.
The Great Low Pants Epidemic Explained
To some people, the lower your pants hang- the cooler you are, or maybe they just forgot to wear a belt. While that mindset is getting rarer by the minute, there are some people who still walk around like this with pride, even though it's not exactly a practical look. Someone else took the time to create the only logical diagram behind the trend, and it finally makes the low-pants epidemic make sense.
This trend is definitely one that leaves some people scratching their heads and others cringing. We'll never really know what inspired this specific style.
Repeat After Us: Quotation Marks Matter
There's no denying that there could be a handful of ways to mess up a sentence, but they all might not sound as inappropriate as misused quotation marks. If we were a parent, we'd probably push our child away from this image in fear after questioning what kind of ride Timmy was really in for when he stepped into the police car. Thankfully, this seems like a vintage image, so hopefully, things have changed.
Quotation marks can apparently wreak havoc on an innocent children's book if they're not in the right place, which is definitely evident after coming across this image on the internet.
That Time McDonald's Fooled the Masses With Their "left-Handed Whopper"
To most of us, left-handed burgers just don't make much sense since any kind of grip works well when it comes to eating. On April Fool's Day, Burger King claimed that they had specially designed a burger that was perfect for left-handed people, and the masses really did fall for the joke. So much so that all those left-handers waited in line only to realize they had been entirely fooled.
Pranksters all around the world surely consider the first of April to be one of the greatest, but the real punchline here was all the unsuspecting customers who fell for it.
Always Research Tattoo Meanings Beforehand
Well, this dog owner had the best intentions when he chose to get the symbol he found on his dog tattooed on him. Most people go for cute pawprints and do a bit of research before getting something permanent done- but this man isn't like most people. It turns out that the symbol actually meant that the dog had been neutered, but some would say that it's the thought that counts.
This guy marched straight into a tattoo parlor and requested to get this same marking done, likely thinking that it was a symbol of love- yet it was quite the opposite.
An Influencer's Viral Clock Confusion
The point of this picture was definitely to share the cuteness of this baby, but as soon as this social media influencer put this image up, everyone noticed that something wasn't quite right in the background. Although the goal here was to impress followers, they quickly pointed out that the clock wasn't positioned as it was supposed to be. Evidently, nobody in this household has been able to tell time for a while.
There's no denying that this influencer's kid is adorable, but she also wanted to give off an elegant vibe. Instead, she's simply revealed her basic knowledge of general Roman numerals.
The Greatest Quote in Football History
One thing that's hard to miss about this statement here is pure honesty. And somehow, this sentence makes so much sense. Any use of contraband in professional sports leagues isn't allowed, and that usually results in disqualification. That's probably what happened here, but Ricky Williams seemed to have a great epiphany when blaming the substance for the failed test. Even though his job was on the line, he took this "mistake" with pride.
American football is famous for so many things, but rarely do the quotes of players make the headlines. Rick Williams' words were just so funny that they belonged in a newspaper.
The Customer Always in the Right? Not at This Place
This response either left the employee's boss laughing or did not, considering that it was time to fire them from the job. They demanded answers in response to a customer who likely complained about being called dumb. Funny enough, the employee had no issues with explaining the situation perfectly, to a point where it almost felt excusable. Working in customer service can be difficult, so this worker just had to say it like it was.
Technically, this employee asked a question and didn't necessarily make a statement- but we sure would love to know how this boss responded to that last message in the conversation.
Well, This Should Be an Interesting Evening (especially for Anyone Named Mike)
People in the autopsy club that have meetings here might be looking for someone named Mike on Saturday night, interested in putting their skills to the test. Thankfully, the only open mike night that's going on here involves a microphone and probably a bit of poetry. The confusing sign here is pretty suggestive in a handful of different ways, so we recommend adding some punctuation to clear up any potential confusion.
Since there's no punctuation here, people are really left to interpret the sign in their own way. However, lots of people are going to show up very confused on Saturday night.
The Lazy Scammer's Guide to Getting Caught
Somewhere out there is someone who just might trust a random yet threatening message from Mr. Sanjeep Patel. Thankfully, whoever received this one didn't fall for the greatly made-up trap. It's hard to miss the fact that today's internet scammers have cut the pretense and have decided to use their real names. In a way, it's kind of refreshing, and they're either adopting a new transparent policy are relying on laziness.
Have you ever received a strange email from an interesting wealthy businesswoman? Well, those days are long gone. Scammers are apparently so lazy that they don't bother using fake names anymore.
One Free-Range, Grass-Fed Chicken Please
Whether it's the weather, politics, or the nutritional benefits of non-existent grass-fed chicken, there's always that one person who's ready to argue about anything. Of course, what better place to exercise this talent than at a local supermarket, and more specifically, the butcher's section? The poor guy was innocently trying to do his job before he was bombarded by a furious woman who thought she knew more about chicken food than anyone else.
It's a well-known fact that the classic Karen was born with the innate ability to argue over anything and everything- regardless of whether or not their point makes any sense.
Beware of the Dirty Laundry Hustler
We would call this con a classic one, but it's so unique that this trick probably can't fall under that category. This man offered to buy someone's washer and dryer for a pretty low price, but they asked to do a quick test run before going through with the purchase. Instead, this trickster walked away with a free load of freshly-cleaned laundry and didn't even have to spend a single dime on anything.
Have you ever had someone offer to buy your washing machine and dryer, only to have them make a move that's as sneaky as this one? Probably not, because this man is a genius.
Tools Aren't Cheap but Life Is Priceless
Either this is an ambitious homeowner, or this guy showed up to someone who was in desperate need of a handyman, and they thought that this guy had the right skills. It's easy to tell that he's likely never actually picked up a hammer in his life, especially since he's barely wearing a pair of shoes. This house might look like some kind of crime scene, but truthfully- that window is looking pretty good.
There's no denying that finding a job can be tricky in general, but this guy took "fake it until you make it" just a little bit too literally at this moment.
A Very Honest Wide Load Warning
Yes, you read this sticker right, and the subtleness of the message is truly nonexistent. It's basically the ultimate passive-aggressive way to ensure that you, as a driver, will always have plenty of space around your car. Chances are, there aren't really any wide loads that need some extra space to get through. It's just a bold statement that's sure to get a ton of different reactions- and we kind of love it.
In a world where people get offended by just about everything, it was only a matter of pure time before someone came up with a sticker that reads precisely this.
The Art of Theft Without Brains
It's safe to wonder if this criminal could even tie his own shoes since he basically cashed in the rare items he stole for a couple of bucks and a pack of gum. Clearly, he was very motivated to conduct a robbery but wasn't able to actually go through with it successfully since we're here staring at his mug shot. He barely even got a whole thirty dollars for the thirty-three thousand he stole.
After reading this, it feels like this is a scene out of a bad comedy movie, where a not-so-smart thief pulls off a daring heist, only to mess up in the end.
Sometimes, Ignorance Is Pure Entertainment
Amidst the sea of illogical words and confusing posts, there does happen to lie a silver lining- pure comedy and something to laugh about. Although there are countless mind-numbing posts out there, that just means that you might be a bona fide genius in whichever corner of the internet you've stumbled upon. Suddenly, your own thoughts and opinions seem worthy of a Nobel prize when reading comments that are just like this one.
The internet is a place of wonders, where a random post or comment section suddenly makes you feel like you're the smartest person in the world- both online and offline.
Did You Ever Think About Just Removing the Plastic on the Back Window?
Of course, the logical thing to do would be to find a way to open up this car since the keys are locked inside, but these people struggled to comprehend the concept of a broken window. That's right; they were working really hard to break into the vehicle, failing to realize that there was a perfectly good entrance- an already broken window. It's almost like tunnel vision is taking over here, and they couldn't see any other option.
Some people are so clueless they'd genuinely make a great case study for scientists studying the ever-changing evolution of the human brain, which is very questionable at this particular moment.
Gearing up for a Broken System
There's no denying this image is a classic one, attempting to remind students that they, too, are just tiny cogs in the giant machine of academia. We're just going to be honest here, alongside the rest of the internet, to say that the gears in this picture could never actually work. Not only are they mismatched sizes, but it's definitely safe to say that the gears aren't exactly lining up too well.
This old-age metaphor shows a machine of gears working in perfect harmony to represent the education system, and although it's an excellent suggestion, these gears wouldn't actually function in real life.
Caution: Local Roomba Vacuum on the Loose
A heartbroken vacuum owner was determined to find their long-lost pal, who ran away from home. To do so, they made what looks like a "lost pet" poster, where anyone passing by won't be able to help but chuckle past the site of a vacuum being treated like a lost puppy. We really do hope that Higgens was eventually found safe and sound, where its owner learned an important lesson about keeping their vacuum on a leash.
It kind of feels like this person loved their Roomba vacuum more than anything in the world, and since it ran away from home, they're just looking to be reunited.
Should We Milk Bulls Instead?
According to this person, the fact that all milk-producing cows have female names is a subtle yet pervasive form of gender bias shining through. Thankfully, cows don't really care about what they're called, but also, to make milk, they have to be female. To make things even more precise, male cows certainly can't produce milk and really never will, but this girl seems to have missed that fact while trying to prove a very confusing point online.
In pursuing gender equality, some internet users are taking their activism to a whole new level. This one is up in arms about milk cows having female names- oh, the irony.
A Case That Doesn't Belong on Camera
Bathroom duties are generally private, and when duty calls, most people will actually head to an actually usable bathroom. Unfortunately, someone in the establishment chose to relieve themselves in the nearest corner of the building, and while being both disgusted and confused- changes had to be made. Whoever owns this place wasn't afraid to explain why there are now security cameras that will be monitoring everyone as they walk in and out.
A phantom bathroom user opted to, well, not to use a bathroom and ended up ruining everything for the rest of us, which is why cameras were permanently installed here 24/7.
H2O Is Very Different From H2O4U
Indeed, not many people call this water company in a panic, thinking that they accidentally drank Uranium instead of water. That's because the only people who could understand the typo would be those who are into Chemistry, while the rest of us likely avoid science at all costs. Although this sparked chaos online, anyone in the real world wouldn't notice that something wasn't quite right with the extra characters added to the logo.
This innocent typo could have disastrous consequences for anyone who gets the wrong message, but it's safe to say that science lovers will stay far away from this water company.
A Drunk and Droopy Mugshot Mishap
Well, this was a wild night for both the man being arrested and the officers involved. That's because the man was so drunk he couldn't even function like a normal human being, meaning there was no way to keep him standing or alert. That's why there are a bunch of extra hands in the picture, and it seems like one police officer even had to hold those drunken eyes wide open.
If you feel like you're staring at a puppet in this mugshot, you're not entirely wrong because officers did have to use their hands to keep this man from falling.
The Most Obvious Sign Proclamation
Somewhere in America, the birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and many people are walking past this sign while simultaneously scratching their heads because it is confusing. This sign certainly styes the most redundant thing anyone has ever seen, and the creativity that went into it is close to minimal. There's no doubt that people in a small town love a good patriotic slogan and even encouraged this one without thinking twice.
Someone has actually gone out of their way to make and install a sign that very much proclaims the obvious, and although these words don't make much sense- they're technically correct.
Black Dots of Tasty Confusion
It's easy to imagine the number of people who have laughed out loud when coming across this post while scrolling through their feeds. Although vanilla is a plain ice cream, people who are just as plain will start to question why there are actual pieces of the vanilla bean inside it. To most of us, that would be a good thing since their nothing better than a top-quality brand of the good stuff.
Believe it or not, a great vanilla ice cream is actually made with real vanilla beans, which are black in color, but this customer wasn't understanding that very well-known fact.
A Case of What We Call "Too Much Information"
If you're shaking your head in disbelief after reading this, just know that you're not the only one. This mother was simply asking for some advice, which just happened to be filled with countless grammar errors, but that's not precisely the point. Of course, we're not here to judge, but the internet certainly is, and they sure went wild in the comments section of this post without the slightest bit of hesitation.
This post is certainly an eye-catcher in an unfortunate number of ways; thankfully, the only very descriptive detail that was left out was an actual image, and nobody is complaining.
What's Been Happening at This Gas Station?!
People really are unpredictable, and based on this caution sign, some have been doing extremely strange things at this exact gas pump. Of course, accidents happen, but those accidents usually involve an accident getting splashed in the eye with gas and nowhere else. At least the people filling up their tanks here will have something to laugh about before having to pay a bill that is definitely way too expensive nowadays.
Manu questions are running through our heads- what kind of gas station is this? And who in their right mind would need to be reminded not to insert a gas pump in strange areas?
Let's Just Blame It on Autocorrect
The dangers of autocorrect and typos are shining through here, where a sentence with generally reasonable intentions took a very awkward turn. Of course, this is the digital age, and we're all guilty of posting messages with typos- whether it's a hurried email or a rushed text message. This question took a whole new meaning, especially after people who came across this became physically ill from how funny this was to read.
Next time you're typing on the internet, we recommend remembering to double-check your spelling before hitting the "post" button, especially when that same topic involves a boyfriend and a funeral.
Why Wild Animals Don't Take Reservations
Yellowstone National Park is known for its one-of-a-kind wildlife, and people worldwide often visit to see those wild creatures. Unfortunately, these people didn't manage to see any bears on their trip, but since bears have a mind of their own, that didn't happen. At the end of the day, wild animals are just that- wild. So, they don't always stick around for the perfect photo opportunity since they're off doing whatever bears do.
Tourists commonly flock to national parks and wildlife reserves, hoping to catch a glimpse of the local wildlife in its natural habitat- but animals don't always stick to stick schedules.
We Love the Honesty
Lots of families put decals to proudly display their family for everyone on the road to see, and hopefully, whoever owns this car puts them on as a joke. They might want to consider downsizing their family or taking a break from dating the bad boys since all of them are now in prison. They have so many kids that it just looks like they have a stick figure parade on the back of their car.
Some would say that family car decals are cute, while others think that they basically display the composition of your family like a questionable yet easy game of Guess Who?
A Tale of a Lookalike Mix-Up
There really are some pretty convincing doppelgangers out there, and although this man isn't actually Chris Pratt- we kind of understand the mix-up. This mom was so proud to have finally met a celebrity, so much so that she sent the image to her friend and family. The Chris Pratt lookalike doesn't really look as thrilled, but that could be because he isn't actually the famous celebrity that this woman thinks he is.
Apparently, there are a lot of celebrity lookalikes out there in the world, making it easy to get mistaken for someone that you might not actually be in real life.
That's Definitely Not Part of the Job
The only reason this zoo was given a one-star review goes back to a very uncontrollable force of nature that happens to be natural for all animals. Marie posted online to say that she was very much appalled by the excitement of an elephant that day, and she also thinks the zoo staff should have done something about it for the sake of her three-year-old. Truthfully, reading this post is more mortifying than anything that happened that day.
This woman seems to think that zoo keepers get paid enough to start doing things for the animals that certainly aren't part of the job description and probably never will be.
Whole Foods Sometimes Feels Like a Parallel Universe of Sorts
There's no denying that a very specific breed of people shops at Whole Foods, and they're often wearing yoga pants while on the hunt for green juice. That very same type of person also apparently requested that a cashier doesn't scan a barcode because they don't want a laser touching their food. It seems like they came up with some kind of health theory right in the middle of the checkout line before making the request.
Whole Foods is a place where you can find anything you need to maintain a healthy and organic lifestyle, as long as you're willing to pay an arm and a leg for it.
Alaska, the Forgotten State
One could blame the education system for failing to teach about Alaska being a state, or maybe some students just weren't paying attention during that lecture. That could be because Alaska is super unique and remote, with its rugged wilderness and harsh climate. Maybe some people just can't fathom that a place like that could actually be America, or maybe they're just not exactly one of the brightest people on the planet.
It's a sad truth that some people out there don't even realize that Alaska is a state, and some might even think that it's a foreign country or a tropical island.
The World's Only Dancing Sandwiches
At first glance, it might seem like this bar hosts weekly events where customers are encouraged to bring their favorite sandwiches while showing off their best dance moves. It's like a combination potluck and a dance party with a heavy emphasis on the sandwich part. Of course, not everyone is into the sandwich-dancing scene, which is why most people are probably just coming here for the cocktails and friendly atmosphere.
Anyone walking past this sign might be slightly alarmed, but thankfully, they just stumbled across a quirky small-town sign, and no strange sandwich dances are going on at this place.
When Nautical Names Get Punny
Nowadays, boat owners are turning to puns, pop culture references, and funny jokes when it comes to choosing a name for their beloved boats. That's because boats are definitely more than just a method of transportation, and some people are going overboard with their creative freedom. Whether you consider this a masterpiece or cringe-worthy, there really isn't a better way to express yourself than with a name like this one.
If you've ever strolled down a marina, you might have noticed that some boat owners love getting creative with the names of their vessels. Gone are the days of boring boat names.
