Why do you not document 2016 memes?
The reason we don’t document 2016 meme is that this blog was not really active during that year. After documenting the year 2015, the blog had a year-long hiatus. So we’ve decided to not really talk much about 2016.
Also, as many of you may know, this blog does not document pre-2015 memes because this blog was started on 1 January 2015 (this blog is a Capricorn), so we decided to not document memes from before the blog’s creation.
So sadly, the skeleton war went undocumented by Meme Documentation. And so did the loss meme (loss.jpg).
But I think the pre-2015 meme that is really underappreciated is the water aesthetic meme. Sadly, that meme seems to have faded into near nothingness, hardly discussed or recollected at all. Know Your Meme didn’t really document it, and it seems like the knowledge of its existence could fade away.
For those who weren’t around or don’t remember, there was a meme near the end of 2014 in which people would take aesthetic posts involving things submerged in water and reblog them along with text posts that offer some context of submerging things for the aesthetic.
For example, this one is about sticking a flip phone under a running faucet.
This other one is about a flooded office space.
There was also that point when the meme went meta, and someone submerged a print out of a Tumblr text post about the meme.
Yeah, anyway, so I guess the point is that life is fleeting and so are memes.
