There are some things in this world that are just meant to go next to each other: peanut butter and jelly, tom and salsa, and perhaps the most important: Millennials and avocado toast. Or possibly Millennials and participation trophies, alternatively Millennials and entitlement. Either way, honoring National Avocado Day we definitely seemed to perform it would be appropriate to bring you most Millennial and avocado-related memes around the occasion!
We’ve encountered the mother of all bizarre dank memes , you guys. Like, we don’t really even know where to start with how WTF this trending meme is, but we do know that it’s been used to rightfully roast Nestle, among other things.
Millennials and their weird-ass humor – we’ll never understand.
Well apparently Millennials are now murdering the… shuffles cards … procreation industry! According to an upset mom on Facebook, anyway, the people that posted about how much she detests entitled Millennials who dare to check Disney World without kids! The fear.
New York Post when necessary followed suit when they published a write-up titled, “Sorry, Childless Millennials Participating in Disney World is Weird. ” Was the article posted mainly rile themsleves a bunch of pissed-off Millennials ? Probably, but effectively it clearly worked!
Us Millennials kind of got the short end of the stick in life. We inherited a ruined economy, most of us are in a crap-load of student debt, and then to round it all out our Baby Boomer parents like to blame us for being “lazy” and “entitled.” Not an entirely fair accusation coming from a generation that makes us work for free in exchange for “exposure.”
Anyway, enjoy these memes that might make you feel a little more understood as a member of Generation Y.
Darby requested via email a free five-night stay for her and her boyfriend at a hotel in Ireland. Instead of paying the hotel, she would give the business “exposure” – the hotel owner was certainly having none of that and replied to her with a snarky email, which he has since published online. He even went on to ban all social media influencersfrom his places of business.
Do you think the hotel owner’s response was fair or did it go too far? Let us know in the comments!
This cringey millennial couple is a reminder that we could all stand to be a little more present. Our doomed lovers became immortalized on @tattoosandbones Twitter account when he overheard a bloodcurdling scream from the apartment across from his. Turns out he had dropped his phone in a very unclean toilet. Things really devolve from there. Buckle up, it’s a wild ride.
The war between Millennials and Baby Boomers has never been more pronounced! Twitter user @manhattanna tweeted earlier this week about a Facebook group in which Millennials communicate solely in Baby-Boomer lingo and let us just say, we’re HERE. FOR. IT. The group hits way too close to home for literally anyone who’s friends with a Baby Boomer on Facebook.
So without further ado, please enjoy a plethora of Minions, death announcements, and wildly inappropriately placed emojis!
The Twitter trend #MillennialAwardCategories plays off of those tried-and-true stereotypes about Millennials that we’re all very well aware of. You know, like our tendency to be triggered over absolutely everything and our affinity for participation trophies. As is such, Twitter began creating memes dedicated to making up hypothetical award categories that reinforce those amusing stereotypes that we all know and…love.
“Notorious virgin” (his words, not ours) and Twitter user LxDx asked the internet what they even did before the existence of memes, digging up a whole lot of nostalgia for those who weren’t totally raised by the internet. We may be a little biased, but we think memes have definitely improved the quality of the internet by tenfold.
We’d like to know what you did before memes! Let us know in the comments!
If you didn’t get the reference in the title then you’re too young to be reading this (Backstreet Boys, duh).
If you’re constantly feeling simultaneously baffled, yet weirdly intrigued by the latest obsessions of Generation Z (fidget spinners, anyone?), then congratulations, you’re likely an aging Millennial! To help take your mind off of this impending doom, scroll down for some memes and posts that’ll make you feel a little more at ease!
Here are some memes and tweets for if you’re not too smart, but not too dumb. If you’re not terminally bored, but not very busy. If your tastes are somewhat discerning but not snobby. These memes are for theeveryman.

Oh look, Millennials are back at it ruining everything! A new survey conducted by Porch and tweeted out by Now This News claims that Millennials might be the worst generation at cooking ever, and that nearly 40% don’t even know what a butter knife is. Additionally, only about 40% know how to carve a turkey. The horror.
Porch surveyed 750 people of all ages, asking them if they considered themselves to be “good cooks” – just over 60% of Millennials answered yes, while well over 70% of Baby Boomers said the same.
Many on Twitter have pointed out that the reasoning and methods used by the surveyors is heavily flawed – it’s almost like hating on Millennials is all just a big marketing ploy to distract us from real problems! Lol nah, that can’t be it…
If you remember all or most of these things then you’re likely a sad Millennial who’s feeling a little panicked yourself about getting older (we’re totally not projecting here or anything…). Worry not, because you’re not the only one going through the harrowing process of feeling like you don’t fit in with the kids anymore. Pretty soon you’re going to look at a group of 20-year-olds and be tempted to say “how do you do, fellow kids?”
We’re still not sure what “yeet” means, but there is absolutely no doubt in our minds that these people and brands really missed the mark with these sad attempts at seeming relevant. Culled from the depths of r/fellowkids, these images are proof that sometimes it’s really best to not try at all.
Have you ever eaten a delicious but “nonessential” piece of avocado toast and then suddenly couldn’t afford to buy a house? Same.
USA Today Tweeted on Tuesday that the average American adult spends too much money on “nonessential items” including takeout food and “impulse purchases,” and that such expenses can rack up nearly $18,000 per year in unnecessary expenses.
Obviously, the tweet angered a lot of people and has inspired a bunch of hilarious roasts by angry Millennials, which you can read below.
British Sky News anchor Jayne Secker has come under fire for her patronizing comments yesterday in an interview with Kirsty Archer, a young politician who stated that the cost of living in London is far too high for many people, and that getting evicted from a rental home could cost a tenant £2,000.
Secker, who is a landlord herself, countered Archer’s comments by claiming that it’s the young renters who are at fault here because they do not have the “basic skills” (including changing a light bulb and knowing how to turn on their heaters) to rent homes.
Secker later issued an “apology” tweet for her comments, which some are calling out for being a non-apology. You can watch the Sky News video and read some of Twitter’s reactions to it below!
Many of us Millennials will think back to the ‘90s as the superior decade that can never be beat. We were the kids that got to experience ’90s boy bands, Tamagotchis, and the rise of the internet. However, we don’t always stop and think about all the annoying sh*t that we had to deal with on a regular basis, much of it technology-related. These memes and pics highlight those struggles that we’ll never have to deal with again! (And thank God for that.)
Generation Y gets a lot of sh*t constantly for supposedly being lazy, entitled and easily offended. Are these things actually true? The answer to that is of course subjective, but if you’re a Millennial then you’ll know that stereotypes about us tend to be a bit (or a lot) overplayed, and these tweets make light of that.
All of our Millennial viewers will really appreciate these sentimental pics, which make us really miss the ’80s and ’90s. In fact, you might be tempted to yell at some Generation-Z kids to get off your lawn with their stupid depression jokes and their fidget spinners (are those still a thing…?). Because you know what they say…the grass is always greener in past decades?
Behold, hipsters in their natural habitat! Mating season is upon us which means that the hipster must reach peak irony levels in order to attract a mate. This objective can be achieved by completing totally mundane tasks with the most gratuitous of gestures, or by offering potential suitors a slice of free-range vegan avocado toast. Let’s scroll down to examine the specimens more closely.
