post your oldest memes, and guess the roots of others
The Bleach one is fucking gold.
this has always been a favorite
You have to be an oldfag to recognize these? Granted I haven't seen them in a good while but are these oldfag tier?
most are quite old, the years vary. the gaijin meme is the Op, pretty old image that comes from a gaming convention. it was a reaction of the release of twilight princess, there is also a follow up image of the same guys with a bored look. still used often. ive seen it used in the anime bakemonogatari.>>88
is referring to goatse which is a shock image of a man stretching his asshole out, thats about 2006 or 2007, i could be wrong.
dancing baby has been around for ages, originally a video.
those are the ones i recognize.
The dancing baby is the oldest one here. It is from 1997 and it was everywhere. It was on every single cheap homemade website.
The 56k Internet was slow as fuck and one single page took 10min+ to load and then you would just see a bunch of cheap gifs.... and of course this dancing baby.
All the 4chan memes and even most of the lolcats are from >2005. A time when everyone already had ADSL.
honestly made good business for his taxidermy gig becoming a meme.
>memes newfags cant identify
I've only been on the chans since around 2010. I still recognize all of these.
>Inb4 Someone thinks 2010 isn't newfag
>Inb4 OP can't inb4
>>1875>calls out thread>2010>does not identify a single one
lol pottery>inb4 Someone thinks 2010 isn't newfag
no worries, you are a newfag.>what is inb4
I have no idea 2010, enlighten me.
since you are an epic 2010'ner olfeg that can identify most of these common maymays, identify these.
also I add, not an image but a quote.
"IT'S AWWWRITTTE!!!">inb4 ebin 2010 tries to reverse image search these for know your may may results.
I'm sorry, did I need to know the names of them in order for it to count?>>1876
Seen these before.
Where exactly did I say I was an epic oldfag?
I straight up admitted I was a newfag.
I'm just saying these are still some pretty well known memes.>>1877
Haven't seen this one before, so good job.
Also where are the flash memes?
I don't even know how that worked its way into the post.
According to this I'm not just a newfag, I'm cancer.
Also since I derailed a bit, have an extra bump, on me.
Apparently I'm a newfag
I don't feel really proud tbh
Don't feel that bad, eventually all the oldfags will die or get bored of the 4chins and everyone will be cancer. You just have to be one of the last newfags to die.
no worries 2010 -also not calling you this to be rude, just a nickname- , I am sure you were not trying to be rude. But we do like to see if users recognize some of these, most are buried in time and its a shame they are no longer cherished. most of the old macros taught life lessons about the internet, I miss that.>I'm sorry, did I need to know the names of them in order for it to count?
yeah, its kind of the point of the thread, to see either who was there or remembers them. Then post another to be guessed at, and summarized.>Also where are the flash memes?
refer to here >>91 →
, we love sharing flashes, sadly most of the Ngrs that used to post them moved on. Honestly need to start a fresh flash thread.>>1879>According to this I'm not just a newfag, I'm cancer.
hell we were all cancer at one point, I jumped on 05, but consider myself 06 because I was summerfag cancer back then, and did not assimilate til mid 06. and the only reason +09 was considered the cancer era was because all the activism that flooded the community bringing in the first wave of outsiders. chanology was a mistake. Also that chart was made before the Dankmemes era (2013) and post election cancer (2015).>>1881>Apparently I'm a newfag I don't feel really proud tbh
you should, you got to enjoy at least the last two years of what once was a pure imageboard community, cherish that.>>1882>Don't feel that bad, eventually all the oldfags will die or get bored of the 4chins and everyone will be cancer. You just have to be one of the last newfags to die.
pretty much, I plan to die lurking imageboards, if one day I choke on a pretzel, please carry on this baton and remind the new users of the past. Its already being forgotten, and why this community exists, not a place for le epic oldfags to be elitists, but for new users to get somewhat of a dose of old imageboards, along with integrating with the new generation, so they dont just have 4chan to rely on when it comes to etiquette, because 4chan is far from what it used to be, and will only change more.
Hmm. I guess. I figure it's kind of pointless to name them.
I never really saw them called by name. Also with know your meme, it's kinda pointless, as you can never prove that you actually know what they are.
I know most of them from an oldfag friend, anyway.>>86
Just tell lies on the internet?>>399
Today OP was not a faggot.>>416
I think this was the name of a band?
I always thought he was saying gilgamesh (finalfantasy) like an autist.>>1876
#3, for some reason I want to say "Frotsy Butts", I don't know if that's anywhere near correct, or I'm autist.
#4, WRRRRY? or however it's spelt.
#5, Candlejack isn't even real, fuck you.
Those were the ones I could at least at some context to without looking them up on know-
I've seen them all and had them explained to me at least once or twice.
Though I did have exposure due to an old fag.
Oh, and I think I missed a desu in there somewhere that was spoiled.
I only lurked /3/ for a long time. I didn't really care for the chans. Still don't really. I only visit /mlpol/ and /3/. I just use overboard here. Kept seeing all these memes and was kinda surprised I had seen them all before, despite not being an old fag.
>>1884>I always thought he was saying gilgamesh (finalfantasy) like an autist
yeah, this one was garugamesh, from the sakuracon commercial.>WRRRRY? or however it's spelt.
right on the button, I figured the roller would be a dead giveaway.>#3, for some reason I want to say "Frotsy Butts", I don't know if that's anywhere near correct, or I'm autist.
right on the money.>#5, Candlejack isn't even real, fuck you.
you said it already once slow down there.
This is my oldest meme, the first I saved.
It's not the original file thought.
Fuck. This thread started as amusement and ended in melancholy
I never got a /b/ folder or anything like that, so this is the earliest pair of memes I can remember.
Without reading the thread, I got two of them, Dio and Candlejack. Being worse than cancer, having come to 4chan late **~2013** infrequently, how'd I do?
*and one of them I saw in a .gif with Mountain Dew
**>tfw I missed out**
**It still hurts knowing I will never really know**
LOL, someone actually remembers this.
guys this is illegal
Is that illegal where this server's located? Whoops, must have forgot.
See, that's completely legal where I live.>have to sign a captcha>whitelisted to post
I-is this just me...?>>1978
Even if redditors **it's clear in the poor style; and IIRC, there was an author source, but I don't remember where it is on the page...** sometimes edit **ED** pages **like Digibro's page, keep meaning to fix that, but I don't feel like making an account**, they've got good content.
I just like looking at this image. It's nice.
Hey guys, did you read about the newest feature?
EDIT: HOLY SHIT IT WORKS
One of my favs.
Also relevant flash animation: http://www.pown.it/3773
that classic site format is always a gem. The comments have that classic internet talk that never fails to charm me.
Its less than 10 years and we already appreciate the old days.
If I see that fucking cat one more time.
Ha, 2channel made it into how many anime now? At least Steins;Gate.
fucking retard, there's no dash in Candlej
Always hated this one.>>2128
Don't forgot that one time he beat up a hooker.
but it itself is not a meme
Apply infinity loop for good measure.
Give a gook-girl ADMIN status for 5 minutes and she launches the worst and longest lasting meme for a decade
