Rillettes, Mayenne, 24 Hours of Le Mans… The ten funniest Sarthe internet memes | Free Maine

According to the definition of the Journal du net, an internet meme is an image disseminated on the web through social networks, consisting of an explicit photo and a humorous or ironic text, written, most often, in a large, white font. The only goal is to make people laugh.

The Sarthe is not immune to the viral phenomenon. A few months ago, a 27-year-old man from Sarth launched Facebook page and Instagram account Sarthois memes, between self-mockery and a superiority complex over neighbors.

“Since I was very young, I love to joke and joke” explains the creator who prefers to remain anonymous. He describes himself as a “great lover of my department and my city. I discovered memes since my adolescence but it’s only tardily that I finally got started. I gradually had ideas for jokes about Sarthe that came to me and by digging around a bit, I realized that apart from a group dedicated to jokes about Le Mans (neurchi from Le Mans on Facebook), there was not much. So I took the initiative to create this account.

Inspiration comes to him “spontaneously. I just have to come across a funny image that I could associate with a particular situation, current events in Sarthe or puns. The most complicated exercise being to stand out from the jokes about the 24 Hours or the rillettes, but I have to come back to it regularly. For the future, I would like to talk even more about culture and historical anecdotes about Le Mans and the Sarthe, we have a certain wealth to exploit! »
