People Are Sending A Meme About Moms Being Confused About Memes To Their Moms—And They’re Predictably Confused


Everybody knows meme culture is pretty much lost on our parents.

You show them a meme and they just stare.  Or they say “what’s that?” or “what am I supposed to see?” and you just roll your eyes because, why did you think that THIS time, your mom would get it?

It all started with a meme of Kim Kardashian that is basically this:

*shows mum something funny*

Mum: What’s this?  How do you know them?




And so then @MemzIsLithenin decided to send this meme to her mum, which of course, resulted in her mum basically doing the meme, unironically, back to her.

“I don’t know her.”


But of course, she was not alone.  This meme is a mum mood.

Ugh.  Mum!

We are trying to include you in our funny meme culture!

Why can’t you ever do anything right?!

I mean, I guess there is no reason for moms to know who Kim Kardashian is?

But this goes to show all memes exist with a serious grain of truth.

In this case, it was even more heavy handed than we could have imagined.
