Holy smokes! Does every Internet meme generator include an automatic spell un-checker? It seems like half of the clever ones out there contain an error big enough and obvious enough that I'm reluctant to share them for fear of being associated with its authorship.
First world gripe, but jeez.
Meme generators don't write the text. They simply provide a popular meme pic with the text bars pre-positioned and awaiting the text anyone wants to provide. So blame the shitty spelling on people who think "it's just the internet" and don't think they need to use proper spelling or grammar.

Oftentimes, the misspellings and grammar foibles are on purpose and add to the humor. Sometimes it is out of ignorance of same, and then there is the overbaked injection of such that is distracting and ruins the "funny".
I love puns, all manner of play on words and good "inside baseball".
I am the unpainted clown.
"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" ✡ I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
I know. It just seems that there must be some evil force behind the abundance of errors. Perhaps I'd just like to believe that people aren't that sloppy.

I like your optimism, and the fact that is hasn't been crushed like a rat under a sledgehammer yet.

It’s the internet. No one cares. It’s not like people use it for communication or anything.
Things like capitalization, punctuation, sentence structure, and spelling don’t even rate consideration.
Hells bells, people don’t even know the difference between then and than.

-- Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past me I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. --
Even worse is the people who share that shit when it's some story of outrage and 10 seconds of searching proves it to be bogus.
I've posted "Stop getting your news from memes" probably 20 times this year already.

You can easily download an app to make your own meme with correct spelling. Quick and easy.
I use it quite frequently, my sister in law is very gullible and doesn’t think twice about passing along things on Facebook without verifying them. I like to make fake memes of “tips” with just a hint of truth and pass them on to her.
Something like, “adding toothepaste to steak marinade will ensure even cooking” on a picture with a perfect steak usually is along the lines of how I operate.
It’s amazing how a convincing picture with text is a trusted by people to be true.

"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012
"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."
Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888

I am a member of only ONE social site "Facebook" and I am very cautious about what I comment on or pass on to others and who I friend. If I don't personally know you I do NOT hit the accept button.

Then and than are not synonymous.
To, too and two are not synonymous.
There, their and they're are not synonymous.
Come and go are not synonymous.
Came and went are not synonymous.
Bring and take are not synonymous.
Brought and took are not synonymous.
Oh ya, you are not saying "should of", you are saying "should've".
Sorry, I refuse to be spelling/grammar/word-usage nazi; so, I have to jump when presented the opportunity.
