Maddy's Monthly Meme Madness

Welcome to Maddy's Monthly Meme Madness, where we take a look at the Top 5 most-liked memes on the Facebook group, Carnegie Mellon Memes for Spicy Teens, posted in the past month.

1) "Kosbie humor" by ‎Jose Garcia (10/10)

This would’ve been a solid 9/10 meme... until I saw the “made with sadness” in the bottom-left corner. Instant 10/10 for the play on “made with [meme generator]” trademark we see infiltrating memes that are cheaply mass-produced without any heart or soul.

2) "Sexy Halloween" by Reneé Nikolov (9/10)

Finally, some non-controversial yet hilarious Halloween costumes! The only good part of Halloween 2019’s abysmal weather conditions was that my eyes were protected from witnessing the fabled Sexy Mister Rogers costume.

3) "OG CMU" by Alexander Chen (9/10)

Chen captioned this meme: “i’m gonna tell my kids that this was carnegie mellon university.” The meme format inherently makes a bold assumption that climate change won’t corrupt our children’s future before we can corrupt them with fake news, and this meme specifically makes the bold assumption that we’re a ripoff of MIT.

4) "Press F" by Jose Garcia (9/10)

‘Tis the season for cozy sweaters, holiday drinks, prematurely played Christmas music... and course registration. Deepest condolences to all our fellow memers who are still on the waitlist.

5) "Mental health @ CMU" by ‎Anne He (10/10)

Although He downplayed her own meme by calling it “stolen,” she managed to create a meme that unfortunately too many students relate to. Through this humorous format, she highlights a problem we have on campus: inaccessibility of resources. The Tartan is proud of any student who is struggling and recognizes the strength it takes to continue this conversation.
