UMD memes go viral among students

In the past 24-plus hours, more than 150 pictures have popped up on University of Maryland Memes, a nascent Facebook group that combines a bunch of meme-ready photos (most of which probably originated at 4chan.org and please, for the love of God, do not click that link) with campus-based slogans.

Since this image was posted to the group about a day ago, when we were all mere babes, the group has exploded, attracting more than 4,100 “likes” and probably a lot more word-of-mouth exposure as the pictures continue circulating the web.

The memes have so far run the gamut of single- and multi-panel constructions, from Scumbag Steve, to the “Y U NO” Guy, Good Guy Greg, the Socially Awkward Penguin and, fittingly, the College Freshman. If that sentence made no sense to you, you’re lucky. Run away while you can.

As of yet, the group’s proprietor has not come forward, so we’re forced to assume he’s an evil mastermind who, like Julian Assange, is disseminating memes from his estate in England, or, like, Wicomico Hall or something.
