15 Memes Straight From The Trash Can Of The Internet

Whether or not you’re a fan of them, memes are pretty inescapable these days. It seems no matter where you go online, which social media platforms you use, or what sites you frequent, there’s a pretty notable overabundance of these particular, internet-based images.

This can be both a good and bad thing. Many people love memes because they’re often hilarious and easy to share with their friends. But, there are others, who don’t quite seem to be in on the joke and think of memes as just another thing for people to waste their day scrolling through.

Of the many memes that are out there though, there’s a certain kind that gets people’s attention regardless of what side of the coin they’re on.

That’s right, we’re talking offensive memes. And located below are 15 of the most filthy you’ve ever seen. So, without further adieu, let’s take a look!

15 Bruh is Right

Every now and again, you come across a meme that is so vile it leaves you and anyone you share it with utterly speechless. It’s not everyday you see memes such as these, but, when you do, they definitely leave an impression, and can really ruin your day if you’re not careful.

So, for this list, we wanted to set the tone with a meme that is truly upsetting and very much worthy of the “bruh” reaction that it received.

Childbirth, although a bit messy, really is one of the most beautiful things that a person can experience. Bringing life into this big, bad world is something to be admired and appreciated when it happens.

But, memes aren’t really good at the whole admiration and appreciation thing. So, we are left with the image you see above.

14 Stalkers Need Love Too

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640"] imgur.com[/caption]

Let’s start by saying that there’s absolutely nothing funny about people who stalk other people. It’s unnecessary, it’s gross, it’s invasive, it's dangerous and it’s really not a healthy or productive way for a person to spend their time. But, unfortunately, it happens, and it’s way more than anyone would care to admit.

Which is why we thought this particular meme was especially offensive, as it makes light of stalking and the kind of people who sneak around, peeping through people’s windows, and keeping tabs on their exes.

But, as savage as this meme is, you have to admit it’s kind of cute that these two were able to find love in such a hopeless place. Well, we think it’s cute.

Actually...let us get back to you on that.

13 How Greta Got Her Groove Back

No one ever wants to think about their parents engaging in the intercourse they so poorly explained to all of us during our adolescence. It’s just a really uncomfortable thought, not to mention something you hope to never walk in on.

But, as terrible as it is to think about your parents doing the hibbity-dibbity, it’s even worse to think about your grandparents doing it.

Now, don’t get us wrong, we get that even the elderly have to get their freak on from time to time. Your desires definitely decrease as you approach your golden years, but that doesn’t mean it goes away entirely!

Really, when you think about it, old folks who can still get it on should be an inspiration to us all...so long as they keep it behind closed doors.

12 Horrible Bedside Manner

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="1369"] imgur.com[/caption]

For medical professionals, developing a solid bedside manner can be one of the most challenging parts of the job. Anyone who’s ever had to spend some time in a hospital knows that this particular skill is one that isn’t always well-learned by some nurses, doctors, and other personnel.

Some people have it down though, and those individuals definitely deserve a kudos for being able to approach their patients in a positive and professional way.

It doesn’t seem the nurse in this meme is one of those individuals though. She seems more like the nurses who have been at it for a while and are now desensitized to blood, guts, and gore.

We just hope she had the decency to actually go visit that kid when they were finally sent home.

11 Geez, Mom

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="720"] imgur.com[/caption]

Moms are some of the greatest people to ever exist on this planet. They’re sweet, they’re nurturing, they’re tough, and they’ll do anything in their power to make sure that you’re taken care of even after you move out and onto bigger and better things.

But, there are some moms out there who don’t exactly meet this criteria and end up doing more harm than good in their children’s lives. It’s sad when it happens, but, unfortunately, not every mom is a great mom.

As you can see in this meme, this mom is one of the bad moms. We aren’t sure how you’d manage to mix up your kid and a pie, but, we aren’t here to judge.

At least that pie is going to get a good education. As for the kid, well, bon appétit.

10 When Toddlers Attack

Toddlers can be really vicious when left to their own devices. Anyone who’s had to watch someone’s kids before knows that those little monsters are quick to get into trouble if not monitored carefully.

This can manifest as them eating Legos, smearing peanut butter all over themselves, or being downright violent. In these situations, you hope for the former two options, but are often met with the unfortunate, latter option.

When that kind of tension breaks out, you’re better off running for the hills. Little kids may be small in stature, but they make up for it in intensity when they come for you, the heaviest object they can pick up in hand.

Whatever you do though, try not to mace them. We read somewhere recently that pepper spray isn’t good for kids. Who knew?

9 My Parents Are Dead

Batman is not only one of the most important and influential comic book characters of all time, he’s also one of the first to really develop a bit of a dark side since his first appearance in 1939.

The character, created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, got his start as Gotham’s resident detective-in-tights-and-cowl, but, over the years became edgier and way more interesting.

Nowadays, the story of Bruce Wayne’s fall into vigilantism is a staple in DC Comics history and one that has been recreated and replicated time and time again in movies, television, comic books, video games, and many more.

But, as cool as Batman is, wishing to be him might not be the best idea. After all, his parents were both murdered right in front of him...not exactly something you’d want to witness as a child.

8 Not Cool, Tumblr

The social media platform Tumblr, and its subsequent users, can be quite intriguing from time to time. Over the years, we have seen some great justice come from the pages of Tumblr; we have seen excellent cat photos; and we have seen people in their early to late twenties flock to the site to share every single one of their darkest thoughts with the entirety of the internet.

Say what you want about Tumblr, but it appears that it is here to stay. Whether or not that’s good news depends on the person, but, we would say that we are happy that it exists and can appreciate the service it provides.

But, then you see Tumblr posts like the one pictured above and you just wish you could burn down their offices and pull the site off the net forever.

7 Keep Your Chin Up

Life can be really hard sometimes. More often than not, it chews you up and spits you out at a moment’s notice, leaving you confused, broken, bitter, and stuck picking up the pieces.

Breakups, getting fired from your job, losing a loved one, these are all things that you’ll experience in your life. Each and every single one of these experiences will test your vigilance and will do everything in their power to cut you down.

Fortunately, you’re never alone in these struggles. There are always people to reach out to, hotlines to call, and professionals to seek out when times get tough.

Or, like this meme suggests, you can just suck it up, because, at the end of the day, no one cares anyway.

6 Not Exactly The Sequel We Were Hoping For

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640"] imgur.com[/caption]

If you haven’t seen the movie Get Out, we highly recommend you get on that as soon as possible. Written and directed by Key & Peele’s, Jordan Peele, Get Out was one of 2017’s most critically-acclaimed films and went on to win a litany of awards from basically everyone in the industry.

The film itself deals primarily with race relations in America and offers a perspective from an African-American that you rarely get to see in Hollywood these days. To put it simply, Peele’s take on race in the United States was a refreshing one, not to mention incredibly spot on.

But, like we mentioned earlier, memes don’t really care for the serious stuff. They’re all about cracking jokes, and the joke that’s being cracked in this meme is definitely one of the most heinous we have seen in quite some time.

5 Wait, Hold Up

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640"] imgur.com[/caption]

This is one of those memes that needs a few read throughs before you can really understand it. Actually, to be honest, we have read through it a ton of times and still have no idea what this person was trying to say when they sent this text.

Either this is the worst autocorrect disaster in history, or there’s some truly unsavory stuff going on here. We aren’t quite sure what to make of it, so we will leave it up to you to do your own investigating.

One thing we do know is that at first glance, this meme has some pretty severe connotations. It’s not everyday you see a phrase such as the one pictured above, so it’s very jarring when you do.

4 No Slut Shaming, Please

Slut shaming, or really any kind of shaming, is super not cool these days. Finally, as a culture, it seems as if we are learning from our mistakes and realizing that we can’t go around being horrible to one another all the time. It’s a shift that has taken a while, and certainly much more time needs to be spent, but it’s at least a start.

However, there are people out there who aren’t quite hip to the change and want to spend their valuable time on this planet hurling insults at each other and cutting everyone down. And if you don’t believe us, check out the ghosts in this meme.

These two are clearly a metaphor for the kinds of awful, judgmental people that unfortunately exist all around us. 

3 Burn Baby Burn

Out of all the things the United States government has done, ordering a nuclear strike on Hiroshima has got to be one of the worst. The bombing itself killed about 70,000 people, but, as the radiation continued to devastate that part of the country, the death toll rose to over 100,000.

It was a grisly and gruesome attack, and one that the Japanese people won't forget for many years to come.

Since then, the United States and Japan have buried the hatchet, but, much like Pearl Harbor, the attack on Hiroshima remains an elephant in the room.

Which is why we thought it was pretty messed up that the creator of this meme decided to make light of this tragedy just to get a cheap laugh. 

2 Anime Sucks

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="480"] imgur.com[/caption]

Although it’s insanely popular all over the world, there’s just something about anime that rubs some people the wrong way. Even with so much great anime out there, there are still people who don’t seem to understand it, and in turn, reject it wholeheartedly before even giving it a chance.

We understand that everyone’s tastes are a little bit different. But, for anime fans, whenever they hear someone say they can’t get behind their precious medium, they end up scratching their heads and wondering why.

But, the divide still exists, and people find themselves at odds with those on the opposite side. Which becomes very clear when you take a look at the meme above. Clearly, whoever made this doesn’t understand the hype around this particular kind of Japanese animation.

1 Dumbledore, No

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="577"] imgur.com[/caption]

Inappropriate Harry Potter memes are a dime a dozen these days. You can find them pretty much anywhere you look, which can often desensitize you to the horrendous messages they’re trying to send.

Each and every character has fallen victim to becoming a meme at some point since the movies came out a few years ago. But, Dumbledore, one of the franchise’s most well-respected and revered characters, hasn’t quite been served up like this before.

There are plenty of memes discussing how irresponsible Dumbledore was with his students’ lives, and how partial he was to giving Gryffindor all the points. But, this time, it’s different, and it’s personal.

Whoever made this is a real cretin and probably not someone we should give a shoutout. But, you have to admit, this meme is pretty darn funny.
