    Welcome to Fav’d For Later, a Friday roundup of our favorite memes, trends, and all-around good internet content. This week we’re back, baby.

    Welcome back from the holiday! Sometimes it’s great to take a break from the internet. I didn’t do that, but people always tell me how satisfying it feels to look into the eyes of their loved ones.

    This one’s for the dog cheese

    Welcome to Fav’d For Later, a Friday roundup of our favorite memes, trends, and all-around good internet content. This week, we ponder what-ifs and perfect cheese tosses.

    Once in a while, the internet delivers. The memes aren’t just good and plenty, but timely. Clever. Disturbing in the best way. Sort of like with the Detective Pikachu trailer, which spun off its very own meme cycle. People, apparently, love creepy, realistic pokémon! I think y’all are crazy.

  • Not a cellphone in sight

    Welcome to Fav’d For Later, a Friday roundup of our favorite memes, trends, and all-around good internet content. This week, I have been liberated by a meme.

    Can I just say something real quick? People who yell at you to get off your phone and live in the moment are annoying. They’re annoying! God, that feels good.

  • One new message

    Welcome to Fav’d For Later, a Friday roundup of our favorite memes, trends, and all-around good internet content. This week, we mourn the passing of Halloween. I know it’s November! I don’t care.

    On most days, I’d agree with you that the internet ruins most things, but Halloween turns me into a dead-eyed devotee. Dressing up and eating free candy as a kid was cool and all, but as an adult, I love logging on to Twitter and Instagram to see what memes my friends have turned into clever costumes.

    Some dogs that were good this week

    Welcome to Fav’d For Later, a Friday roundup of our favorite memes, trends, and all-around good internet content. This week, Megan is at TwitchCon, so I’m blowing up her spot again by making this all about the dogs I like.

    This one is sort of a flex, but Verge internet culture reporter Bijan Stephen gave us this very good boy struggling to get through this week, despite a mere mortal’s limited grasp of reality.

    This is clickbait

    Welcome to Fav’d For Later, a Friday roundup of our favorite memes, trends, and all-around good internet content. This week, we’re rediscovering the art of Rickrolling. For good.

    As we barrel into another election season, people are finding new ways to get readers riled up and registered to vote. No longer content to trumpet “VOTE” into the Twitter void ad nauseam, clever users have taken the call one step further.

    Dance like a G.O.A.T.

    Welcome to Fav’d For Later, a Friday Saturday roundup of our favorite memes, trends, and all-around good internet content. This week, our usual correspondent Megan Farokhmanesh is on a much-needed vacation. Tech reporter Dami Lee and internet culture editor Devon Maloney will be stepping in to completely ruin what she’s got going here, starting with arriving a day later than usual. Sorry, Megan.

    If you’re on Twitter and are a fan of Tessa Thompson, you may be familiar with @tessasgoats, the Twitter account that does exactly what it says on the label: pair photos of Thompson with photos of goats wearing similar outfits, hair colors, and the like. It would have been like any other celebrities-as-animals account, except it somehow made its way to Thompson herself, who fell in love with it and now frequently retweets the best ones.

  • Hey, u up?

    Welcome to Fav’d For Later, a Friday roundup of our favorite memes, trends, and all-around good internet content. This week IS A TEST. NO ACTION IS NEEDED.

    On October 3rd, aka Mean Girls Day, the first FEMA Presidential Alert lit up phones across the US. Right on time! By that, I mean the memes. The memes were right on time.

    Welcome to Fav’d For Later, a Friday roundup of our favorite memes, trends, and all-around good internet content. This week, the internet asks: is this your queen?

    When did the Super Mario fandom get so horny? Has it always been this way? Did everyone lose their damn minds when we saw Mario’s nipples? I didn’t start this fire. I’m just here to fan its flames.

    Thanks, I hate it

    Welcome to Fav’d For Later, a Friday roundup of our favorite memes, trends, and all-around good internet content. This week, we will definitely not talk about dicks and other things we cannot unsee.

    The internet was abuzz this week with Dong Talk™. If you missed the flurry around Donald Trump and Toad — yes, that one — then consider yourself lucky. (Everyone else, please know I, too, am on the market for brain bleach. I will report back ASAP.)

    All hail bongo cat

    Welcome to Fav’d For Later, a Friday roundup of our favorite memes, trends, and all-around good internet content. This week, we highlight musical memes, dabbing dads, and authenticity on YouTube.

    There’s nothing I love more than the return of a good meme.
