Hey hey party people! If you’re planning on celebrating Cinco de Mayo, we hope you have a safe and enjoyable holiday, and of course, we have to take this opportunity to remind you what the holiday is actually about: contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican independence day, but rather the anniversary of the victorious 1862 battle of Puebla against Napoleon III’s army, located southeast of Mexico City.
Today, Cinco de Mayo is celebrated in the state of Puebla, but is not much recognized in the rest of Mexico. The holiday was brought to the States as a way for Mexican immigrants to celebrate their heritage, but has since spread to include the rest of America.
TL;DR: Cinco de Mayo is an excuse for many Americans to get drunk and eat tacos.
If you haven’t seen Talladega Nights and aren’t familiar with what the hell we’re talking about here, it’s a NASCAR race that takes place at the Talladega Superspeedway in Lincoln, Alabama every spring. This year, the official Talladega venue’s Twitter account decided to tweet all of the weird crap left behind by the fans of the event, and let’s just say, sh*t got weird.
Finally, we’ve done it. We’ve crafted the ultimate gallery of “Karen” memes for you in case you’re feeling spiteful toward all the irritating middle-aged white moms in the world who talk to down to customer service workers.
Don’t know what the hell we’re talking about when we say “Karen”? Well first of all, have you been living under a rock for the past year? In all seriousness though, a “Karen” tends to be a middle-aged white mom who demands to speak with the manager at the smallest inconvenience. We all know her.
Know Your Meme can probably explain the Karen craze better than we can!
The best part about Coachella weekend every year? We gotta be honest that for us, it has to be making fun of the absurdity of it all. You’ve got cornucopias of trendy white people dressed up in arguably offensive Native American garb…really, what could go wrong? Not to mention the festival is expensive as sh*t and average plebs like us aren’t exactly…welcome there.
To ruminate in our saltiness, we put together 14 memes making fun of the whole operation. We hope you enjoy!
These clever first-world rebels don’t give a sh*t about following the rules. They’ll f*ck you right up and they don’t even care, because rules are for nerds and squares. You’ll never be as cool or as clever as these badasses so why even try. That’s right, just give up now.
Whole Foods, which was bought out by Amazon two years ago, announced that it will be cutting prices on many of its traditionally overpriced products. This has come as good news for many, but it’s also been met with scrutiny that the products won’t be as high-quality as they were in the past.
Will the hippie supermarket soon shed its infamous nickname “Whole Paycheck”? It’s hard to say, but either way, we’re bringing you these memes that throw serious shade. If we’re being honest, probably most of us still won’t be able to afford anything they sell!
Mr. Brightside might possibly be one of the most revered songs of the last two decades. If you were a middle schooler around 2000, then you likely jammed the frigg out to this absolute banger. And yes, you read the above correctly, this song is now 15 years old, which is quite frankly blowing our damn minds.
Calling all future dads! Not planning to have kids ever? That’s okay, you can still embody the spirit of a dad without ever having the offspring. These memes will get you started on your dad journey!
(By the way, we love Middle Class Fancy and we think you should check them out!)
People love to hate on Starbucks, and we can kind of see why. Apart from having mediocre coffee, Starbucks has become closely associated with absurdly fancy latte drinks that would make any Italian cry and, of course, the basic white girl who has to Instagram every single drink she gets.
