Crying Jordan is far from dead, just go on the sports subreddits during playoffs


Rare photo of the 9gag servers, circa 2017 (colorized)

Hell no you can't put crying Jordan among the rest of that shit. It may not be as popular as it used to be but during any major sport playoffs you'll see Jordan in all his glory

Talk about nostalgia

A meme never really dies. They're run into the ground over the course of days, weeks, months, or years, where they lay dormant until they're needed again.


Yeah, I thought that and 4koma guys were ageless memes.

Does it count if i was already crying before i looked at it?

I used to access 9gag almost daily between 2011-2013 until I discovered most of the things there were taken from Reddit

Press F to pay respects


When does a meme die? Does it die when it's been overused? No. Does it die when it's been spread on Facebook? No. Does it die when it's been misused? NO! A meme dies when, and only when, it is FORGOTTEN!

I almost cried

and then it turns out reddit is just as bad as 9gag

Oh my God fucking Chuck Norris jokes. Someone said one just the other day and I was just like how old are you? Did you step in a time machine?

The true me_irl is always in the comments.

There is no such thing as ageless memes, friend. Just memes that take longer to die.

hmm dunno about that

le redditors suffer from a large superiority comlex

/sub/nba is very familiar with crying Jordan. I remember when they redid all the logos of playoff teams that lost with the face.

I just found an ageless meme

It's been replaced with Crying Subban on /sub/hockey

LOTR just can't compete with the prequels. They're a meme platinum mine.

Sort of wish Lord of the Rings enjoyed the same status as Star Wars prequels and Spongebob in the meme economy though. Obviously I don't wish for us to go back to the dark ages of "One does not simply" but I think there's potential elsewhere in the series.

remember when /sub/adviceanimals was a big deal

You want to know why I love dat boi? Dat boi is a completely self-made meme. So many other memes are based in nostalgic childrens shows, funny faces, relatable situations, or references. Not dat boi. Dat boi is completely absurd. It's a low-res frog on a unicycle, and an arbitrary method for greeting him. The first person to ever upvote dat boi did not do so out of recognition. The first person to ever upvote dat boi did not do so because a pre-existing meme format. The first person to ever upvote dat boi upvoted a meme literally pulled from the ether by sheer human creativity and willpower. Dat boi is evidence that humans can stare into the meaningless void of eternity and force their own meaning onto to it. I will always upvote dat boi, o shit waddup!


At least reddit is self aware.

9gag thinks they're the cool kids.

Subreddit sash ash tags?


This one and the Predators one this year will always be favourites of mine.

and the Predators one this year will always be favourites of mine.

Why are you selling them then

Schfifty Five

So what, are you suggesting it gets resurrected when it's forgotten, but someone stumbles across it later? By that logic, am I now resurrecting ?

Dat Boi lives on.


Dam daniel shouldn't have a gravestone, it was dropped in the ocean where it belongs.

Damn Daniel

Some die so young 😢



Lmao you look at the clock like "what year is it? Is it 2006?? Dude wears my 4G iPod mini? I wanna listen to Joker & the Thief."

God it was so bad.

Putting crying Jordan among the ranks of Damn Daniel is a crime against meme culture.

Crying PK is just a derivative of Crying Jordan though.


Well we gotta justify the time we waste on that website




It's pretty cool, but apparently they have a bit of a superiority complex.


You can not resurrect what have never died.



I never actually saw a Damn Daniel meme, just people complaining about it.


Better yet, remember when /sub/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu was a big deal?

Video documenting the longest running meme

We are changing our memes so fast nowadays

Happens with nfl and mlb and last year with nhl before it was replaced with crying subban

d/dx Crying Jordan=Crying PK

Trying to compete with the prequels

It's treason, then.

That shit still shows up on /sub/all every day. Most of these memes are still very alive there. And I hate all of them and the people who use them

I remember when the "yo dawg, I heard you like cars, so we put a car in yo car so you can drive while you drive" was fresh and funny

Where is the O RLY owl tho

I hate you.

Upvoted anyways

This is deep


All the way in the back, you'll find All Your Base and LOL Cats, cheezeburgers and all.

Maybe its a subreddit about a woman named Sasha Shtags.

Reddit doesn't like to admit it but certain pages on Facebook and Twitter are catching up to the meme game here at an alarming rate.

it still is lmfaoooo

Some of these ran longer than others. I wonder if some memes are still a thing and what the longest running meme is. I know of some people who unironically still use "trolling" in conversation, and it actually kinda works.

Didn't they reach /sub/all a couple of months ago? Biggest surprise that month

Well we gotta justify the time we waste on that website

Same with Fidget spinners. I didn't know what they were until people hated them. And then I felt behind on the meme.


Thats what I thought it said until I looked closely



/sub/prequelmemes always has the high ground

Oh I know, but the vintage ones are still good, particularly ones done by I think /u/vorin



What website?

tbh I frequently see good memes on twitter before I do on reddit these days which is just sad

What website?

No one misses the puffin.

None of the real memes are here. Kids these days . . .

Damn daniel doesn't deserve to be there. That was a shitty meme.

Well I'm off to listen to Wolfmother

I cry 24/7

Like dis if u cry evertim


Conversely, you cannot kill that which has no life.

Memetic turnover is a hot area of research in the meme labs nowadays.

And so it is.

I was there when this was born.

Llama Song




You just unlocked the deepest darkest parts of my brain. And for that I thank you.

And now, here is something I shall repay to you.

Troll face is will always be remembered strongly by me

"Cool story bro", too. I used to have a shirt that said that on it


Not to mention Me Gusta, Fuuuuuu, Forever Alone, LOL and all the other rage comics characters

He's the hero me_irl deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.




Le trole face

This makes /sub/adviceanimals much more spoopy
