Yo dawg I heard you like memes, so I put a meme on a meme on a meme so you can enjoy your meme convention. A meme convention is apparently scheduled to take place on April 21 and 22 in Melbourne, Australia. Yes, you read that correctly, a meme convention is going to take place in Australia. A convention that is going to celebrate memes, humorous images that are passed around the internet. I’m really not joking, here’s the link https://www.eventbrite.com/e/meme-fest-tickets-32079413389. You can come dressed as a meme or wear one of their meme face masks. I honestly don’t really know what could be done at a meme convention. Are there meme panels? Can you buy the rarest and spiciest of Pepes on the convention floor? Will there be a ball pit?

I have two theories on this whole meme convention. My first is that it’s a bunch of out of touch adults who don’t really understand a culture they’re dealing with. They must have thought “Hey! I love those Joe Biden memes, let’s have a convention about memes and make some money.”My second theory is that this whole “convention” is a meme in and of itself. A bunch of people are going to roll up to The Colonial Hotel (the place in Melbourne where the convention is being held) with their Bad Luck Brian sweaters perfectly ironed, their scumbag steve hats perfectly placed, their perfectly cold Dos XX, and their blue and black dresses(or is it white and gold?) to realize there was no meme convention after all. They’ve all wasted a plane ticket to Australia for a convention that wasn’t going to happen. But who knows this “convention” may be a smashing success, the next DashCon, or my second theory may be proven to be true. There are about two months before this convention and I can’t wait until this takes place.
