Some memes are excellent, others are good and some are just painful to read. What’s a meme connoisseur to do? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We at the Clog have thoughtfully provided a comprehensive guide that will tell you to whether to post that meme or discard it for the sake of your reputation.
Is it about EECS or Haas?
Yes: Do it. For some reason, these memes never get old.
No: Read on to see if your meme’s still edgy enough.
Does it say “wot n’ tarnation”?
Yes: Way too overdone, abort mission.
No: You’re in the clear, and your meme is at least somewhat respectable.
Would it make Chancellor Dirks proud?
Yes: Obviously do it (for Dirks).
No: Why would you post something that wouldn’t make Dirks proud?
Is it about the Berkeley College Republicans?
Yes: Post it because they’ll probably overreact, to everyone else’s amusement.
No: No biggie, read on to see if your meme still qualifies.
Is it an indication of your unstable mental health?
Yes: The fact that you’re making a meme is already an indication of your unstable mental health.
No: Read above.
Did you get it from 4chan?
Yes: Post it, 4chan is where it’s at.
No: Could still be edgy enough, if it satisfies another meme requirement.
Is it slightly offensive?
Yes: For the sake of amusing Facebook comments, post that meme.
No: Make it more offensive.
Does it make fun of Greek life?
Yes: You know what to do.
No: Might be good enough if it satisfies another meme requirement.
Is it relatable?
Yes: Press that “post button.”
No: Don’t post it — unrelatable memes always get wrecked.
Does it have the UC Berkeley logo?
Yes: Post it, for the Berkeley community.
No: Add that logo.
There you have it, a clear criteria of which memes to post and which ones to delete. Now go spam that meme page (as long as you aren’t Albert Castro).
