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. *“Intellectual Support” by Komal Dewan** (10/10)

Politics aside, you cannot deny the versatility of the Bernie Sanders “I am once again asking…” meme. Also, assuming that you have been to office hours at least once, you cannot deny that this has happened.

2. *“Midterms: 112 vs 122” by Gram Liu** (8/10)

I personally barely escaped 110, so my plebeian coding abilities may not be able to comprehend the complexity of this meme that everyone else in this STEM-ified university seems to be on board with. However, the true criminal offense of this meme is the alignment of the course numbers. Why is the black border on the top and bottom there? Why are the course numbers not centered?

3. *“Secret Life of Tepper” by Jose Garcia** (10/10)

Out of all the memes, this one made me laugh the hardest, so kudos to Jose. The absurdity of the meme comes to show that, as Abraham Lincoln once wisely stated, “don’t believe everything you see on the Internet just because there’s a picture with a quote next to it.” Or at least that’s who said it, according to the internet.

4. *“112 Valentines” by Emily Zhang** (9/10)

Again, the fact that I am a mere coding plebeian is called out in a top-liked meme. However, I feel less attacked here because as a fellow non-CS student, I, too, can relate to the feeling of exclusion based on falling outside the CS culture this institution guards.

5. *“helth” by Sihan Wu** (9/10)

Gen-Z’s favorite coping mechanism strikes again: expressing pain through humor. Although it’s nice to bond over a shared experience, The Tartan wishes to allow this review to be a reminder to take care of your health. Stay hydrated and try to make time for yourselves.
