A meme generator has been making the rounds on the internet, and with it comes the potential to change your life forever and/or eat the next hour of your time. Imgflip.com has found the perfect AI formula to make memes so random that they actually loop around on the insane continuum and start to make sense. Naturally, Twitter has caught on to this madness, and the results, much like an explosion in a glitter factory, is delightful chaos.

If ever there were proof that machines will one day rule over humans, it is this right here. How does the humble human memer compete with something like this:

Automation is coming for us all, but before that happens, I decided to take a spin on the meme-bot 9000, and the results did not disappoint. Behold my bewildering, yet brilliant AI-generated meme:

what should we do to fix the school sammy mountain conobin aboutmhares don't share made with Al on on imgflip.com

Here we have your typical board meeting, presumably among the high ranking members of School Corp., with the explicit goal of fixing the schools. It's a situation we can pretty much all relate too. And so too can we also relate to seeing this first idiot, with the confidence of every dumb corporate drone at every dumb corporation ever, suggest "sammy mountain." Doesn't he realize we all thought of "sammy mountain?" It was the first damn thing we tried. Then Karen suggests "complain about memes," which, while not necessarily a solution, is as good a way to deflect blame as any. She's always thinking about covering her ass, and we applaud her for it. Finally, we have our third guy - our rebel. "Don't share," he says. It's an idea too radical and bold even to be permitted at School Corp., so we toss him to the pavement for his insolence. Somehow this insanity was the most profound moment of our day.

Here's another gem:

GIVE ME MY FOOD! NO Tountu Oronye NO YES NO madewithAl on imgflip.com

We never realized just how much can be said with the words "no" and "yes." This isn't a meme. It's an image poem, and if you were to swap out any of those nos for yeses and yeses for nos, it would drastically change the story we're watching.

The meme generator also allows you to add a prefix beforehand. It's a little word fertilizer to let your memes grow in the right direction. Here I added the word "Pikachu" just to keep the meme a little grounded. I was not disappointed.

The picture says it all. Whoever Barry is, he has left Pikachu permanently scarred. There are so many great memes to be had. Sometimes the AI's randomness completely disrupts the format in such a bizarre way as to make it perfect.

And sometimes, like a million monkeys at a million typewriters, the AI generates something that almost makes perfect sense.

You've been called out, Andrew. At this point, I decided to dive in the deep end. What follows are some generated memes from the internet, some of my own alchemy, but all insane. First, what I assume is the genesis of this whole concept re-created in meme form:

Then there's the feeling swelling inside the working-class human meme makers about to get displaced.
