Funny Food Memes Not For Facebook Moms
Memes have become such a large part of our culture. We remember when only the weird kids who went on /b/ had access to memes. If you’re too young to know what /b/ is then consider yourself lucky. These days memes are readily accessible to anyone who has an internet connection. Since we run a food blog, it makes sense that we enjoy food memes. But the quality of these memes leaves a lot to be desired, so we’ve curated a list of some of our favourite food memes for our audience to enjoy.
Included in our collection are some of the more mainstream memes that you’ve probably all seen before (Guy Fieri, Gordon Ramsay), but we’ve also included a few memes that require a bit more of a deep dive into the world of food on YouTube. You’ll notice that not all of our memes are in the traditional format of a still image with text — some are videos of people who are just so ridiculous, that their very existence is a meme.
Binging With Babish x Mayo
We love Binging With Babish — it’s always entertaining to watch him recreate food from our favourite shows, like the Krabby Patty Supreme from Spongebob Squarepants. At the end of this episode, Babish squirts mayo into his mouth and says, “no one is allowed to make a meme of that”. So what did the internet do? Meme the shit out of it. Below are a few of our favourites:
We hope to see more Babish memes in the future!
Steven Reed on Weber Cooks is a member of the sad boi club. The four videos on his channel have hundreds of thousands of views which is impressive. Unfortunately, the people who have reuploaded his videos have millions of views — we’d be sad too if this happened to us.
Steven Reed cooks exclusively with a microwave. If that doesn’t depress you, his voice and demeanor will. His videos make our heart break — watching Steven microwave a bowl of canned chili and a jar of cheese sauce makes us wants to cry. This guy has picked up a glass bowl that was in the microwave for 10 minutes and didn’t flinch. We’re not sure if he’s human or if only the depression remains...
Start your day off on the wrong foot by watching him cook spaghetti:
Yes, that is Kesha’s voice at the beginning of the video. It’s taken from her song Stephen.
Some of our favourite comments on his videos:
“This is the opposite of Bob Ross” -Mmm Satisfaction
“I've found myself re-visiting this haunting piece of contemporary art. Truly a dire look at the depths of despondency. Forlorn and full of microwave cookery - the loneliest form of cookery. I have no more tears to cry.” -Slapped Ham
“I tried this recipe now I have clinical depression” -Noose
Three Cheese Blend
Have you ever wondered how to make a three cheese blend? Have you ever thought to yourself, “I imagine it’s probably just combining three different types of cheeses together, but maybe there’s more to it?” Well wonder no more! This very informative video courtesy of eHow will tell you exactly how to make a three cheese blend!
Thank you eHow, you have done a great public service.
Of course, YouTube commenters do what YouTube commenters do best — they troll.
Below are some of our favourite comments from this masterpiece:
“He looks like a bad guy from Home Alone who wandered onto the set of a cooking show while trying to escape the cops and is trying to blend in - with hilarious consequences.” -Cats Are Rubbish
“Okay, so you said i can use it for my favorite pizza, but what about pizzas that are good, but not quite my favorite? will that still work?” -norpdorpknorp
“Doesn't work, my bowls aren't see-through, what should I do?!” -Seb J. Whoever
“I'm really glad this video was made. Now I know that once I have 3 separate bowls of an unspecified amount of cheese (because that wouldn't be the only thing I would be unsure of) but the demonstration of how to mix the 3 in one bowl just helped me out tremendously. Thank God they got a 2-time personal chef to make this video. Because a personal chef whose only been a personal chef once might have not been able to get all of the cheese out of the second bowl.” -Reid Erickson
K N O R R S T O C K C U B E S
In the wee early mornings of winter in england, the shrill tone of an alarm echos through an empty household. Marco rises groggily from his bed, turns [off] his alarms, and rub his eyes. He stands up and from a drawer pulls out a Knorr stock cube. Marco drops it into a glass of water, [takes] a swig from it, smiles to himself and says ‘[magnificent]’. -Sprezza tura
That right there mostly sums up Marco Pierre White these days. For those of you unfamiliar, Marco Pierre is the chef that mentored Gordon Ramsay, Mario Batali, Curtis Stone, and others. He was famously aggressive in the 80s, demanding nothing but perfection from his cooks. He was the youngest chef to ever win 3 Michelin Stars, which is pretty much the highest award in cooking. So, he’s a pretty big deal.
He partnered with Knorr in 2006 to come up with simple recipes for the home cook that focus on using Knorr’s line of products. Some people call him a sellout, others call him a genius. He’s doing an admirable thing by trying to make recipes more accessible to people, but the paid promotion in his videos is very apparent and sometimes cringey. It looks to us like Chef White has sold his soul to the K N O R R gods — YouTube commenters also think this and have littered the videos with some gems.
Watch for the recipe, stay for the Knorr Stock Pot comments.
There are more videos! Just do a quick search on YouTube to find more. Also, this parody video is the stuff of nightmares... Watch at your own risk.
Here are a few of our favourite Knorr comments:
“Since I've been watching these I've begun rubbing myself all over the body with dissolved stock cube every morning to-uhm ... enhance my flavour ...” -whynottalklikeapirat
“Eagerly awaiting his recipe for stock pot garnished with stock pot and finished with stock pot.” -Calum Irvine
“Watching marco promote stock pots is like da'vinci promoting paint by numbers” -iRacing Rookie
“Marco Pierre white used knorr cube/It's super effective” -Kyle Hennigan
You’ve probably seen many Gordon Ramsay memes floating around the internet — they’re pretty mainstream, unlike K N O R R S T O C K C U B E S. A majority of the Gordon Ramsay memes are taken from his show, Hell’s Kitchen. Despite his appearance on this show and many others, Gordon Ramsay isn’t always cussing and screaming. In fact, he has a YouTube channel where he doesn’t yell or scream at all.
We all know the popular “This chicken is so undercooked” format, but have you seen the memes that came from Gordon Ramsay’s interview on HotOnes? (Also if you haven’t watched this, you should. You can thank us later.)
Spoilers: Gordon Ramsay squirting lemon and lime juice on his hot wing was iconic. Here are a couple of our favourite memes of this moment:
Unrelated to the Hot Ones meme, but we can’t not mention this:
Guy Fieri Takes You to Flavortown
Where do we even start with Guy Fieri? His most known catchphrase (slogan?) is “flavortown”. What is flavortown? According to an interview with Munchies, it’s a home where you put your iconic food moments. It’s actually kind of a sweet sentiment when you read the entire context. That didn’t stop the internet from turning it into an amazing joke:
Those are our top six food memes, we hope that you enjoyed taking a peek into our personal meme collection! What are you favourite food memes?
