Memes are nothing new to the Internet. They are funny pictures with identifying phrases that make a point. There is entire sites based around curating and showing memes on different topics across the Internet and now Yellowknife has its own memes.
A Facebook page that was started on November 11, 2012 called YK Memes has caught the attention of many over the weekend. On Friday the page had a modest 200+ followers but as of Monday morning has grown to over 1000 people.
Using photos the page owner and now the community bring to light what life is like in Yellowknife with some humour. Some common themes included the Raven and the Tree, Bruno’s Pizza and the Yellowknife River. As long as the community is contributing, these memes could go on for a long time.
The page says it will have daily memes, however some may not be appropriate for everyone. If you are not on Facebook I am going to start a weekly meme post here on YkOnline.ca.
