Title: LMAOO: Laughing My Ass Off Online

Thesis: The internet has affected our senses of humor, our accessibility to get new content, and our ability to become the next internet humor star.

We want to run through the history of internet humor, starting from as early as 2005 with the invention of Youtube, up until modern internet humor only 11 years later. We want to discuss the definition of an internet meme, how they are formed, and how they have affected our sense of humor.  With all the easily available content online, how we watch, laugh, and share comedy, it affects us more than we know.
