I loved Internet memes when they were just used for humor and run. I hate that they're now often used in place of substantive argument.

Memes were dank, until they went too far.

The few I clicked through were schwag, not dank.

Those weren't too bad.

This is too close to my nightmares about mimes roasting Jose Cruz and Terry Puhl on a spit.

Does miming a spit roasting really burn? Remember it's your dream so what happens?

They lost a 2 run lead to a great hitting team; I am sure that is unprecedented, and I cannot imagine that ever being replicated in play-off baseball, again.
