There's something exhilarating about watching people crash on burn in movies and television. The same goes for insane posts on the internet. From cringey anime memes to unhinged people on Facebook, the internet is a freaking goldmine of uncomfortable and disturbing content. You just need to know where to look. And because we're benevolent people, we've done that looking for you.
It feels like ages ago that those adorable Baby Yoda memes came onto the scene. While that's a damn shame, we're here to remind you that there's more to Star Wars memes than The Mandalorian. This mix of memes comes from pretty much every one of the films, so there should be something here for every breed of Star Wars fan.
Baby Yoda took the internet by storm in the Fall, and there are still scads of memes devoted to that tiny green alien. It would seem that The Mandalorian birthed meme immortality with this character. Most people seem pretty pleased to scroll past the critter on their timelines, but that's not the case for everyone.
Earlier today it came to our attention (Thanks, Know Your Meme) that there's actually an entire subreddit dedicated to the hatred of Baby Yoda. The memes on the site are either violent attacks on the Yoda clone, or cringey reposts of horrifyingly basic Baby Yoda memes. While we don't hate the cute character, we're fascinated and extremely entertained by all this contempt. We've put together some mean-spirited examples of the hate, but we highly recommend visiting the subreddit for more surprisingly brutal content.
TGIF, y'all! To celebrate the eventual release from the metaphorical shackles of the work week we've put together this generous gallery of memes and tweets. You can expect some relatable tidbits, dumb memes, and a whole lot of Baby Yoda. If you want something a little spicier, you can check out some of our edgier and weird memes here.
Planters Nuts had teased their Super Bowl ad since the untimely demise of their mascot, Mr. Peanut. Unfortunately, the funeral-themed bit didn't sit as well with viewers as they had anticipated. The ad shows mascots mourning the monocle'd peanut in a cemetery, when the Kool-Aid man's tears cause "Baby Nut" to emerge from the dirt, a mascot reborn.
The move is a pretty obvious nod to the popularity of Baby Yoda, and many people found the move to be a cheap exploitation of the public's affinity for cute characters. These feelings were then channeled into some seriously Anti-Baby Nut tweets that made us wonder if peanut allergies are more prevalent than we thought. Whatever the case, the passionate contempt for the small legume is vastly entertaining. We can't wait to see what Planters does to spin this one.
Life sucks and then you die. In between? It's pain. You mostly experience pain. Maybe you pop out a few kids. Go on vacation for a couple days weeks over the span of a decade. Get fat. Lose weight. Get fat again. Hate yourself. Why not let yourself enjoy a few meaningless moments before you disappear into the ether? These memes could help you do just that.
