The 8 Lamest Car Memes

The Web is full of memes.  Originally, these were defined as anything that spread virally, usually through humor.  Now, thanks to Facebook, Pinterest and the like, memes are graphics with funny commentary on them.  Most of us, for example, are familiar with the Grumpy Cat or the Greeting Card memes that are filling our Facebook walls.

Well, in honor of starting our own “Car Meme” fun on the Car News Cafe Facebook page (click here, you know you wanna!), here are some of the lamest car memes we’ve seen recently.



OK, seriously.  Anything involving drinking, little kids toys, and references to sex is just.. well, too much.  Two of the three is probably going to make for a funny meme.  All three is just creepy.



A lot of lame memes involve geek references like this.  I mean, is this actually LOL funny?   Or do you just feel obligated to comment with a “lol” because, well, at least they tried?



Another theme in lame memes are puns.  Seriously.  Puns are NEVER EVER EVER funny.  Not ever.  In fact, if a DeLorean with a Flux Capacitor actually existed, I would use it to go back in time and beat the hell out of whoever invented puns.


Didn’t I say something about nerd references?  Why yes, yes I did.  Further, the guy in the Beamer with the Gandalf license plate.. he deserves a beat down.


It’s possible that this could have been funny, but for one thing: public service messages and memes DO NOT go together.  As in DO NOT try.


Wow.. makes absolutely no sense.  Memes involving clipped English written like you’re a 12-year-old Japanese girl are funny if they involve cats or Hello Kitty.  Otherwise, they’re stupid.  It’s a law of nature, I didn’t just make it up.

This is supposed to be a funny gamer reference, but it’s just a sick excuse for making fun of tragedy and trauma.  If you found this remotely funny, you are probably related to Jeffrey Dahmer.


This might be mildly funny to many, making it a good one to end on.  But remember the “nerd” reference above?  Ya.  Only nerds actually find this funny, so if you chuckled at all, you’re a geek.  Get some horn rims and a pocket protector.
