2014: The Year In Memes by Girl Du Jour

Following up on my most significant memes of 2013, this post is about some of my favorite and most shared memes of 2014.  As I looked through my posts I was surprised that many of these have been shared thousands and thousands of times that I didn’t know about.

As time goes on, I think my memes get more aesthetically pleasing…  most of the time.  Sometimes, not so much.  But usually I’m pretty happy with them.  Seems like the angrier the subject matter makes me, the better everyone likes them.

If you would like to share them, please do so from the links provided.  There are usually stories from other associated with them.  If all these aren’t enough, you can see more here.

Let’s start off with this one from January 14, 2014 inspired by LOLGOP:

AntiAbortion AntiBirthControl Adoption

 

This one, also inspired by LOLGOP was originally posted on February 3, 2014:

This was originally posted on March 9, 2014:

Republican, Doug Cox, from Oklahoma of all places floored me on April 3, 2014:

And you can always count on Steve Marmel to say something that knocks it out of the park, much like this on May 12, 2014:

This is one of my favorites, from May 27, 2014–but originally made and posted as Veruca earlier:

And let’s not forget this doozy from Jim Wright on June 15, 2014:

Another way to remember July 6, 2014 is when some Americans decide that we should turn away refugee children and send them back to their native land to face certain rape, torture and murder.  This meme with the words of LOLGOP.

When I first made this (as Veruca) in June 2013 Politifact (or one of those fact checkers) from Texas wanted to interview me.  I’m proud of all my Rick Perry memes.  He’s an idiot, and if he ever ends up as President it wasn’t because I didn’t try to tell you all what an idiot he is.  This was most recently reposted on July 14, 2014:
