Create and share your own viral memes in minutes

Each day, millions of people laugh at Grumpy Cat’s shenanigans, doge’s superlatives and Sean Bean’s warnings about walking into Mordor. Memes are usually jokes or statements with hidden meanings meant to be funny and, oftentimes, satirical. Culturally, they are an important way to keep your pulse on the current events and issues. Every successful meme is: easy to replicate, relatable, shareable, and funny, clever or witty.
