Know Your Meme is a website and web series, both of which document various internet memes and other online phenomenon.

Website

The website, named Know Your Meme: Internet Meme Database, currently contains over 500 confirmed meme entries.[1] In a manner similar to Wikipedia, anybody with an account can submit meme entries to the website and submit relevant images that help further document the memes.[2] The administrators have say over what gets confirmed and what gets "Deadpooled" or rejected.[3] Some of the meme entries are graphic and Not Safe For Work. NSFW entries are usually given warnings.

Show

Episodes of the Know Your Meme show average a few minutes in length. In a given episode the KYM staff describe memes and the history behind them. New episodes appear sporadically.
