#WickedFunny Since 2012!

Maine Memes, as you might expect, started out as a joke. One dark, snowy, icy, freezing night in February, Maine Memes was born in a dorm room at the University of Maine… a position we all hope to never actually find ourselves in.

For six long months, one lonely facebook page sat in the netherworld of the interwebs with barely two likes to rub together. In the early days, Maine Memes was a pretty lame party.

Then, one day, everything changed. Our good friend Evan G. from down Wiscasset sent us up a friggin’ hilarious meme about Ames’s (or “the Ames’s” as our parents used to call it).

The original viral Maine Meme! It's "The Ames's!"

Overnight, that one meme went viral, and ended up reaching over 2 million people. When we woke up the next morning and realized we were famous on the internet, we got our act together, and decided to ditch our hopes and dreams and settle for being internet clowns. Our Meme Team has been lampooning pretty much everything and everyone in Maine ever since – and our #WickedFunny audience keeps growing by the day.

“Maine Memes” uses social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, MaineMemes.com, and our video companion brand WickedFunny.tv to reach over 6 million unique users every month – many of them Mainers.

As long as there are crazy people living in the woods, crazy people teaching zumba classes, and crazy people being crazy in Augusta – we’ll be right here. Thanks for laughing with us!
