Top Definition of Dank Memes

Dank meme refers to viral internet content that, due to overuse or passing trends, has lost its value or currency. It can also refer to exceptionally unique or odd memes.

It’s in the soul, idk how to explain this. You can feel something is dank, but you can’t really explain why it is dank.

The same goes for the person, you can tell he/she is dank, but you can’t tell why. Maybe its psychology or something.

Create memes of high quality:

  1. Such memes need to be original or be a good variation of an original meme.
  2. The content needs to resonate with the community, and have enough joke value to stay funny for a good amount of time.

Dank Memes

The term “dank” is often used to describe a meme in which the comedy is excessively overdone and nonsensical, to the point of being comically ironic. 

Dank memes often contain intentionally added visual artifacts. e.g. excessively poor image quality, color bleeding or extremely saturated and modulated colors, or patterns that indicate that the image has been compressed and decompressed extensively.

These artifacts, although artificially produced in dank memes, usually indicated that an image has circulated through many virtual hands and been reposted and modified multiple times.

When in video format, dank memes often contain audio artifacts, such as feedback or extremely loud and unpleasant audio, also known as ear rape. Dank memes share many characteristics with the A E S T H E T I C and youtube poop themes.

In fact, “dank” is often used as an umbrella term for these themes and other variations, although it should be noted that the A E S T H E T I C theme usually uses said artifacts to produce pleasant and, some might say beautiful, visual and audio, rather than the crude humor of youtube poops and other dank memes.

All of these themes share the hallmarks of digital artifacts and excessiveness to convey irony and comedy.

According to Urban Dictionary

How does one become dank?

I myself, can only offer an outsider’s perspective.

In short, to be dank, is not for you to decide. It is for your audience to decide.

Create memes of high quality:

  • Such memes need to be original or be a good variation of an original meme.
  • The content needs to resonate with the community, and have enough joke value to stay funny for a good amount of time.

In addition, it helps to be able to identify dank memes as stated by previous answers. Lurk in dank meme communities, and develop your taste.

Most importantly, do not fall into the mainstream.

Where did the word “dank” come from?

“saturated with cold moisture,” c. 1400, earlier as a verb (early 14c.), now obsolete, meaning “to moisten,” used of mists, dews, etc. Perhaps from Scandinavian (compare Swedish dank “moist place,” dänka “to moisten”) or German (compare Middle High German Damph, Dutch damp “vapor”). Now largely superseded by damp (adj.). As a noun, “cold moisture,” c. 1400. Related: Dankly; dankness.

What does the word “Danke” mean?

Literally translated, it is the first person form of the verb “to thank”, Danken. Hence Danke just means “thank” in the first person, like “I thank (you)”.

The “I” and “you” are implied. The full sentence would be “ich danke dir” or “ich danke Ihnen” or “ich danke euch” depending on the full context.

  • Other variants of saying thank you:
  • Vielen Dank (many thanks)
  • Tausend Dank (a thousand thanks)
  • Vergelt’s Gott (a Southern German variant, more or less meaning “God bless you for it”)
  • Danke sehr or danke vielmals or danke schön or schönen Dank (thank you very much)
  • Herzlichen Dank (heartfelt thanks)

The word Danke is used as an informal way of saying ‘thank you’ in German. The informal reply, (‘you’re welcome’) is bitte.

The most common formal ways of saying ‘thank you’ are Dankeschön or Danke sehr but these can also mean thanks a lot or thank you very much. More formal replies that go with Dankeschön or Danke sehr are Bitteschön or Bitte sehr.

The word Bitte may also mean:

‘May I help you?’
– (Waiter approaches table) Bitte?

‘Pardon?’ (as in ‘Could you repeat that?’)
– Ich bin heute einkaufen gegangen. (I went shopping today.)
– Wie bitte? (Pardon me?)

or ‘Here you go’ (when handing something over)
– Ein Stück Apfelkuchen bitte. (A piece of apple cake please.)
– (Waiter serves the cake ) Bitte sehr.

Conclusion:

Dank memes are basically just stale memes that have started to decompose, but users with a refined palate are able to appreciate those nuances of humor.

A really potent weed, produced by proper slow drying of harvested plant material, usually requiring curing (putting plant material in paper bag, folding over top, placing that bag in another bag.

Thus reducing air and light contact on said plant materials, so when you go to retrieve some of the said plant materials, it is still moist, green, and sticky because the resin glands are still intact and ‘sweating’.

Also, an expression frequently used by stoners and hippies for something of high quality. Or Unpleasantly cold & Damp.

Is Dank a bad word?

Dank weed. Weed is dank’s breakout moment from stolid adjective to countercultural buzzword—and a wholesale flip from an indication of mild unpleasantness to utmost excellence.

dank basement is not a good thing; dank bud is highly desirable. And so far as marijuana is concerned, dank is a real workhorse of a word.
