Top trending memes of the week
The internet is one dark joke humanity has played on itself
This week in Memesaab, I’m going to make you lose your faith in humanity and the Internet. Crate challenge? Seriously? People are jumping over crates and breaking their necks. Why? For a 15-second viral video. That’s where we are now! The world is fighting a deadly pandemic and people are losing livelihoods but hey, as long as we follow stupid trends, it’s all worth it, right? Remember when people thought drinking bleach would cure Covid? And you thought the human race couldn’t get stupider? Well, 2021 clearly isn’t letting us forget that the Einstein quote, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
But don’t despair. There are some funny moments too. And then there is a quiet laugh in the sheer stupidity of the human condition. And the Internet, like humanity itself, has managed to celebrate those too. Check these top moments out.
