Memes are most-often humorous, cultural references that spread quickly across internet platforms, and if you haven’t heard the term “meme,” you will no doubt recognize the typical format of repeated images with a variety of short phrases associated with them (top text and/or bottom text). These images mutate over time as they are viewed online and more and more people tweak the wordage.

Two “meme accounts” on Instagram are uniting Greater Victoria residents by making light of the frustrating things most of us experience; BC Ferries Memes (https://www.instagram.com/bcferriesmemes) and Victoria Bar Memes (https://www.instagram.com/victoriabarmemes). ** Warning: some content may offend/swearing throughout. **

BC Ferries Memes points out the humorous setbacks of relying on a ferry service to get on and off the island. From financial barriers to weather and wait time delays…but, there’s no such thing as bad press, right?

And Victoria Bar Memes speaks to the idiosyncrasies of Victoria’s nightlife culture…and the drunken hilarity of a small city teeming with college/university students, hip youth, and craft beer brewpubs.
