The majority of memes are humor centered and transmitted via internet by young adults. I often saw memes being compared to a virus that spreads rapidly from person to person.

I was curious see what I would find if I googled, “old people memes”. I found an interesting array of memes but the top categories featuring older adults included: driving, technology, birthday, cartoon, love, and black old people. I guess ageism wasn’t enough so creators added some racism into the black old people memes.

Below are a few of the first memes that popped up…
