Plymouth State University is offering a new club in the next couple weeks. The Meme Club will meet every Tuesday at 2:00am in the Hartman Union Building Hage Room. The meetings will last until all the members drop. The members of the club will discuss the dank memes that keep them up at night. Nick Pulliam, a junior here at PSU, was inspired to create this club by his passion for memes.

The club hopes to get as many members as possible. “My ambitions for the new club are to spread the power of memes to the good people of Plymouth,” Nick said. Discussions are expected to vary in terms of genres of memes. The club will cover wholesome and dark memes alike.

Memes are a big part of modern day culture. They spread like wild fire across the internet. The most recent fad is a new wave of SpongeBob memes. Certain genres of memes are popular in different time intervals. There is even a yearly meme calendar, created by people on Twitter. Each month is an image of the most used meme that deserves offcial recognition. The members of the Meme Club will make their own calendar, which will be available for purchase to the student body among completion.

Nick is also planning on making clothing merch for the club, including graphic t-shirts. For $10 each, students can personalize their own t-shirts. They will be able to choose from the following memes: Uganda Knuckles, Bad Luck Brian, Chloe, Gavin, Harold, and a variety of Pepe and Kermit The Frogs. The Meme Club is not afraid to revisit stale memes.

Different people have different tastes in memes. “I like the tide pod meme a lot,” Nick said, “I don’t remember why, I may have eaten too many tide pods.” Memes have such an impact on people. They accomplish so much more than simply make people laugh. “I feel like they contribute to my life on an intellectual level,” said senior Lindsey DeRoche, “I use them as an incentive to get through the day.”

The Meme Club will sometimes have themes for their meetings. “Sometimes we’ll focus on spicy memes, sometimes stale, some in between,” Nick said. Paying specific attention to one flavor of meme is bound to create interesting conversations. This new meme-based community is sure to be full of stories to tell the grandkids someday.

Some people are not so fond of the progression of meme culture. “I invented memes,” said senior Jack Roberts, “I don’t like where they have gone. I did not intend for them to have this much destruction on the planet.”

The first Meme Club meeting will likely take place in the next couple of weeks, or never, depending on whether members will be able to get into the HUB at 2am.
