For your daily dose of laughter, enjoy these funny Michigan memes…
A meme can be an image, video, text, or a combination of these. They are typically humorous in nature, and if successful, it is copied and spread rapidly by internet users.
If you don’t know by now, I hate to be the one to break it to ya – a meme is pronounced “meem” – not “mee mee” or “may may”. Though, going over how to say meme reminds me of my all-time favorite one…
And it IS gonna be May, an exciting time for Michiganders as true spring-like temperatures start to stabilize.
Michigan’s Wild Weather
Fortuitously, many a Michigan meme involves poking fun at the weather. So, now that spring is well underway and the ‘worst’ of winter is behind us, we can be good sports and see the funny side of memes like these:
Bob Ross was the creator and host of The Joy of Painting; a television show in which he instructed people across the world how to paint scenes of nature for 11 years. If anyone knows how to paint Michigan snow, it’s Bob Ross.
Seriously, if this photo is real, where else do you think it could have been taken?
When you see the TWELVE seasons all laid out like this, it is kinda cruel… but also exciting! In Michigan, you must check the weather each day and as you make your way to do so, whether via TV or an app, admittedly, a thrill comes along with it. What’s it gonna be like today, Michigan (evil laugh here)?! Chances are, like this:
This meme made me laugh out loud! Yes, I’m laughing, but at the same time – I’m not gonna knock it till I try it. My legs do need some color.
OK, this is funny because it’s true.
BUT! Let’s not forget that without significant weather changes, we wouldn’t have our treasured four (or is it twelve?) seasons. The spells of unpredictability are worth it to experience fall-time magic in Michigan.
I told ya, that’s the stuff of magic.
Speaking of magical things, you’ve no doubt heard of or seen the otherworldly film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. A classic musical fantasy film since 1971 and meme of choice since 2011 called “Condescending Wonka.”
YES. YES. YES. I hear this often.
“I’m from Detroit.” Quickly followed by, “Well, actually, [insert neighboring city here].” People please, just say Metro Detroit!
I understand it’s tempting to namedrop Detroit because it’s the Motor City; the town that put the world on wheels. Also known as the birthplace of Motown, The D, Renaissance City, or as the French and myself (when I’m feeling fancy) would like to call it, “De-Twah.” Detroit is all these things and more; an impressive city that holds clout. Even so, unless you actually live in Detroit, don’t fall into those Temptations…
Be strong, like Superman! Did you start craving ice cream just now? Oh, you didn’t? You must not be from Michigan.
Memes Only People From Michigan Will Understand
I believe Superman ice cream is hard to find outside of the Mitten State because no one knows its three flavors.
The ice cream consists of Superman’s three suit colors: blue, red, and yellow. Unlike the red and yellow colors, the blue actually has a name. It’s called “Blue Moon,” which, admittedly, may also be a Midwest-only thing.
So, while it has a name, the flavor of “Blue Moon” is apparently indescribable, leaving little hope for the other two unnamed colors to be declared. Let’s just say you need to experience Superman ice cream for yourself, it’s a tri-color treat.
Don’t just come to visit Michigan to taste the one-of-a-kind Superman ice cream, stopover for all of the following quirky reasons:
The Great Pop / Soda Debate
Sometimes in life, you got to pick your battles. And this is one worth fighting for, Michiganders.
No explanation is needed here, it’s called “Pop” – not soda.
Dang it! Now I’m thinking of Justin Timberlake and *NSYNC again… C’mon now, This. Must. Be. 🎶 POP 🎶 !!!
Infamous Roads & Construction
Our Michigan winters sure do a number on the roads.
I did not want to go here, but, potholes are a problem. You just can’t fight science with all that hot and cold making things expand and contract.
If construction equals summer here, is it really that bad?
This looks like fun! My kids would love it! In all seriousness though, a true roundabout is efficient.
Michigan’s Unique Geography
So unique, it’s even easy to recognize Michigan from space.
Don’t even try to deny you’ve done this.
I give Michigan TWO big thumbs up!
If you know where “up north” starts in Michigan, PLEASE, I’m begging you – leave it in the comments. I’ve got money riding on this.
Again, come visit the Mitten where you can try our one-of-a-kind Superman ice cream while simultaneously sunbathing and building a snowman – when you do these things and MORE, who knows – you may feel a bit like this:
I’ll see you soon, neighbor.
