The definition of a meme varies depending on demographics. A middle aged white facebook mom may classify a minion meme about the daily mundanes of life on Facebook as “drop dead hilarious.” However, if you were to ask a millennial, they would say any meme about suicide and paying debt, preferably “twitter posts”. Generation Z, however, those in schools now, grades k-12, find a new, unique kind of post laugh-worthy. Typically “deep fried”, or an image with the saturation, contrast, and grain turned all the way up, and images often distorted with random thoughts that enter anyone’s brain displayed across the image, relating to the picture or not. This is what our future laughs at.

To decipher the hard lines drawn in humor from generation to generation, we asked a bethpage original, Mr. Gorman, his take on some Gen Z memes. Mr. Gorman, being in Gen X, had an interesting take on the memes we showed him.

The Eagles’ Cry:

Mr Gorman: “I feel like I should send them a card.”

The Eagles’ Cry:

Mr. Gorman: “My daughter plays minecraft. Makes me worried.”

The Eagles’ Cry:

Mr. Gorman: “Funny. I’d go to bed.”

Next we interviewed Kelly Xhumba, regular feature on Brolivia and Balentina Bollaborations.

The Eagles’ Cry:

Kelly Xhumba: A classic.

The Eagles’ Cry:

Kelly Xhumba: One of my favorite reaction pictures. Solid meme. 10/10.

The Eagles’ Cry:

Kelly Xhumba: Got em! The emojis add some extra added flavor.

 

Memes have definitely evolved since its Facebook era. This time, we cannot deny evolution, for it is real. Scientifically speaking, it is clearly evident how adults’ minds simply cannot process a deep fried meme. They do not find such culture funny, and often resort to minions. As there are obviously some outliers (Mr. Gorman), as there are in any study, majority rules. Adults aren’t funny.
