Dank memes certainly have their utility. Sure, the internet is beyond its saturation point with these cutsey captioned picto-jokes and its easy to write them off as background noise -- but, like anything on the internet, it's the numbers that count.
Even a slightly less-than-dank memes is sure to provide you with a mild chuckle. And that mild chuckle, when multiplied by the internet across millions of people, actually becomes something pretty substantial -- a dumb joke and a low-res image that equates to millions of half-seconds of respite from the toil of life.
A moment's refuge from whatever financial troubles, health issues or relationship obstacles someone is facing. It actually counts for something. These dumb little, dime-a-dozen memes
might actually have some sort of... meaning. Which is lofty and perhaps a little high-falutin but also somewhat uplifting. So gon, scroll away and enjoy the dank fruit of the internet and maybe send some of the funnier ones to someone else to make their day a little danker.
