Rage Comics: Funny Internet Meme Faces

These Simple Yet Hilarious Facial Expression Will Make You LOL

If you spend a lot of time browsing and interacting on social networking sites like Tumblr, Reddit, and others, then you've most likely been exposed to a strange phenomenon called the Internet meme.

An Internet meme is usually a photo, video or general idea from the Internet that gets passed around rapidly from one user to another. These photos or videos become so popular that they help reshape and redefine Internet culture, thus being defined as “memes.”

Rage Comics are funny and exaggerated comics or pictures that depict everyday life situations. They're extremely popular online — especially with the younger crowd — and you can see them being used to depict nearly every relatable situation imaginable.

The following is a list of some of the funniest and most popular faces that are used.
