    Do only nerds/ edgy people watch this channel? I'm just an average person. I don't use 4chan or Reddit. I only use my best friend Facebook, so I guess I know nothing about memes, but it doesn't bother me because I don't have time to waste scrolling on Reddit. HAHAH. You do you though. No shame. I won't feel shame for being different than you guys either.

    and if you think this is what memes really are, you have no idea as to what a meme really is or who actually coined the term (hint: It's Richard Dawkins) Notice how I used a meme to pass this information? (whoosh, that's the sound of the wisdom passing right over your` head)
