A standard meme

As memes are part of pop culture, and Popdust is a pop culture site, it's our duty to bring you the dankest memes from around the globe. Are you ready?

Here's the dankest meme of the week:

Memes can come from many places -- this week's dankest meme comes from a Facebook page called Guitar Memes, and is inspired by the 1994 Green Day hit "Basket Case." In case you need a refresher:

In the chorus, lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong sings

Sometimes I give myself the creeps/ Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me/
It all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid? Am I just stoned?


Somebody at the Guitar Memes Facebook page was probably stoned when they made this meme (but that's not really for us to judge).

Here's the dankest meme of the week, "Sometimes I give myself the crêpes!"

We're pretty sure Billie Joe didn't authorize this.

I did a Google Image search for the dankest meme. The Google cyborgs think that Billie Joe is a waiter, offering exclusive crêpe service to himself (giving himself the crêpes, if you will).

We checked in with the 5-time Grammy winner (with Green Day) on Twitter, but he didn't seem aware of the dankest meme of the week; BJA has other things on his mind.

Is BJA feeling the Bern? US Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has "the dankest memes of the 2016 election."

You can find more dank memes literally anywhere on the Internet.
