Of course, if you are not obsessed with March Madness right now, but rather sick and tired of hearing everyone talk about it nonstop, hat’s totally cool, too! You can still enjoy these March Madness memes ironically, looking down on the rest of us sheep from your lofty intellectual perch. It will be totally meta. You’ll feel very superior.
In fact, you know what? However you feel about March Madness, you should go ahead and read and share this list so I don’t get fired. And because it’s good. But mostly so I don’t get fired. Deal?
Okay, then, let’s get started…
Every year they tell us the odds of filling out a perfect March Madness bracket are 9.2 quintillion to one. And every year we study and analyze and agonize over every pick at though we're somehow going to beat those odds.
Humans are silly.
25. Understanding the Odds
I don't know about you, but those stupid Cyclones sure messed up my bracket.
24. Debating the Seeds
No matter how cool your boss is the rest of the year, when March Madness rolls around they all turn into Bill Lumbergh.
23. Work Problems
You could call this one "fifth year frat bro problems."
Even though Georgia State screwed up my bracket, I was still rooting for them because I wanted to see what coach Ron Hunter could possibly do next.
21. Ron Hunter: Internet Superstar
Try to rationalize and explain why your bracket is in shambles all you want. You're always just going to end up sounding like this guy.
20. Conspiracy Theory
Replace the eucalyptus leaves with potato chips and this was pretty much me when I looked at my phone on Saturday and saw that No. 1 Villanova lost to No. 8 NC State.
19. Utter Disbelief
Personally, I don't mind when people went to Duke or grew up within a two-hour drive of Durham are Duke fans. What I can't stand are people like Tony Romo.
18. Duke Fans Will Not Be Tolerated
Get it? It's ironic because it's a meme complaining about memes!
17. That's So Meta
Oh, that agony. You've actually got a pretty good point total going, but you know you're ultimately screwed.
16. First World Bracket Problems
Pro tip for all you Bad Luck Brians out ere: never bet on Kansas. Ever.
15. Bad Luck Brian
NC State wouldn't even be in the Tournament if the selection committee didn't flip a coin and pick them over Miami. Stupid Villanova Wildcats.
14. Upsets Are Upsetting
We all know this guy. He hasn't watched a college basketball game all year, he somehow cheers for both Duke and North Carolina, and he talks trash nonstop when he's winning your pool.
Man I hate that guy.
13. Scumbag Bracketology
The hardest part about your bracket being in shambles is knowing there is some old lady out there who doesn't know a thing about basketball who is totally beating you.
12. College Basketbal Expert
Don't feel bad, Villanova Piccolo Girl. Any hardcore sports fan who says they haven't been there is a liar.
11. We're All Villanova Piccolo Girl
It's true. Nothing brings about anarchy quite like a major upset in the early stages of the NCAA Tournament.
10. Rock the System
This is the beauty of March Madness, isn't it? It's a truly level playing field. Nobody has insider information. You're just as much an expert as Jay Bilas.
9. Everybody's an Expert
In the words of the immortal Keanu Reaves, "No way. No Way. This is crazy."
Yeah, you know it's coming. Kentucky is going to win, and suddenly a-hole Kentucky fans are going to come out of the woodwork.
7. Here Comes the Bandwagon
As far as I know there are no scientific studies about this, but you have to think people are having a lot less sex during the first four days of the NCAA Tournament.
6. Relationship Strain
5. Confusing Mascots
That pretty much describes about 85% of us, doesn't it?
4. Treatise on the Ephemeral Nature of Your Bracket
Oh, it's definitely gambling.
3. Deep Thoughts
This has never happened to me. But I can only imagine it must be the greatest feeling in the world.
2. Work Is Overrated
The NCAA Tournament is the most democratic sporting event on earth. Everybody's an expert, and nobody's an expert. It's a beautiful albeit somewhat maddening thing.
