Which is funnier, conservative memes or liberal memes? I tried looking at it objectively, and while I think there are a lot of funny conservative memes, like this one....


It seems like most conservative memes aren't really funny or ironic but instead can just be kind of angry and bitter, like the one of the little girl giving Obama the finger. (I would post it but it might be taken down due to language, just type in "thanks Obama" into google images. The typical conservative meme looks to me like it was made in about 2004 and is supposed to be funny, but the "humor" barely contains the outright rage evident there, this is a good example. I see these swirling around facebook a lot, usually passed around by my older conservative relatives and neighbors





On the other hand, the best liberal memes seem to be done by younger people who have a better grasp of the ironic, sarcastic and eccentric humor that translates well online.







Of course this is just my opinion. What do yall think?

I think a grasp of copyright infringement is needed.
