Memes are usually used figuratively. For a meme using a photo of a giant dragon attacking a knight, the dragon is labeled “Me at 3 AM” and the knight is labeled “a bag of shredded cheese”. But as meme formats are used over and over again to the point of becoming stale, eventually, people begin using them in a literal fashion. These Literal Memes show what the characters in the meme might actually say in a given situation. They’re super weird, but when a meme has been used to death, they can be just the thing to revive it.
