We had such a great response on Facebook to our “Keep calm” article that we decided to take a look at other memes that drive people crazy.

The meme craze has begun and it shows no signs of stopping. Memes are just another popular way Internet users are showing their opinions, feelings or sense of humour to one another. It’s like adding a smiley face to your email, you get to express how you feel without offending anybody.

The “What People Think I Do/What I Really Do” meme basically tells all of your friends how your horrible life is actually more horrible than anyone could imagine. Ready for a pity party yet?

This little boy originally gained internet fame in 2007 when his mother posted a photo online of her son on a beach, clutching a fist full of sand. The image quickly spread, often accompanied by captions reflecting sentiments of either success or frustration. The photo was used by Virgin Media in 2012 to promote their HD channels.

This woman is Sweet Brown, an Oklahoma City resident, who said the words “Ain’t Nobody got time for that!” during a television interview with a reporter about a fire in her apartment complex. The interview has become a viral hit and many people use it to make memes.

You can even have a meme based on a meme. The recent spate of zombie movies has given rise to appropriately-themed memes. This one takes one of the original memes and warns people of the imminent zombie apocalypse.

Apple is the world’s top brand, worth $98,31bn and having shown a 28% rise in brand value over the past year.
