Who hasn't yearned for the sweet release of sleep at least once in their life? We spend a good third of our lives asleep, yet most of us just can't wait to climb in between the sheets again each night. Whether it's because of a rough or tiring day, or just too many hours spend surfing the internet late at night, good night memes express a feeling we've all felt.

What Do Good Night Memes Mean?

There are a few different kinds of good night memes, so they can mean a number of different things. Some of them literally mean good night, while others are meant to convey a feeling of tiredness, exhaustion, or that the user is simply done with the conversation or situation that they are involved in.

How Are Good Night Memes Used?

Since there are different kinds of good night memes, they are used in a few different ways. There are a ton of good night memes that are literally used to say good night. Some of these involve a cute animal, like a kitten or puppy, and a simple message. Others are used to get a laugh, to blow off a conversation, or express that the user is tired of, or simply done with, the current topic of discussion.

Examples of Good Night Memes:

Example #1:
Image: Grumpy Cat
Text: "Goodnight..."
Text line two: "I said good night, sir."
Meaning: This is an example of a Grumpy Cat image macro meme, which superimposes text over the image of a nonplussed cat for humorous effect. This type of meme could be used to say goodnight or in a dismissive fashion.

Example #2:
Image: Shaquille O'Neal looking pleased.
Text: "When you see your bed at the end of a long day."
Meaning: This is an image macro that combines text with a screen capture of Shaq from a Gold Bond commercial for humorous effect. In the commercial, Shaq sprays himself with Gold Bond, makes a funny face, and does a little dance that you wouldn't expect Shaq to do. The meme is meant to convey a sense of great pleasure, happiness, or relief, in this case due to finally being able to go to bed.

Example #3:
Image: A person laying on the beach with the surf covering them like a blanket on the top, and a confused woman underneath.
Text line one: "Good night guys."
Text line two: "wat"
Meaning: This meme combines a humorous image of a person who looks like they are tucked into bed with the ocean as their blanket with the Wat Grandma meme, which is typically used to express extreme confusion. The term "wat" is an intentional misspelling of the word "what" that is commonly used in memes.
