The @MrStealYourMemes Instagram account is a compilation of great memes that will bring a smile to your face. It comes to us courtesy of 24-year-old Ryan, who is an accountant residing on Long Island in New York. When it comes to when and why he started the account, he explained, “I started my account on Jan. 22, 2015. I started it for three different reasons:
“1. I have had a normal Instagram account for myself for years where I would post pictures of myself and occasional memes. I began to post more and more memes and thought to myself it would be better to have a separate account for this.
“2. I found a website that taught me how to grow Instagram accounts. I asked to join one of their group chats and they taught me how to grow from there.
“3. I wanted a big Instagram account like thefatjewish, fuckjerry, and theslutwhisperer.”
Regarding the account, Ryan explained, “I visit bodybuilding.com a lot because of their ‘misc’ section, so in the beginning I used the #ruaware hashtag a lot and I followed a lot of people that I knew from that website and that’s how I initially gained a following. I had 1,000 in the first few days because of that website. That is why I still have the word ‘aware’ in my Instagram bio.”
As far as his first post, Ryan said, “This was my first post:”
He went on to say, “I don’t even like it, to be honest, I was just trying to get a bunch of pictures on my account quickly so my account looked legit and I could start gaining followers.
“I just looked back at everything I posted on my first week of having the account and this is my favorite:”
When it comes to his process for putting together a post, Ryan explained, “I would say 98% of my posts come from other people’s accounts (hence my name), but I do come up with the occasional meme idea. I post it on Twitter and then I screenshot it, watermark it, and then it is ready for Instagram.”
There are a lot of fantastic posts on the @MrStealYourMemes Instagram account, but which of the posts were the most viral? “This got 1,600 comments most of my pics only get 400-600 comments. I think it got a lot because it’s so shocking:”
“This got a lot of likes:”
“I think it got so many likes because it’s relateable. You’ll be out having a good time with family or friends and then you remember real world responsibilities you forgot to take care of.
“I think people like this because it’s clever:”
“It’s not your basic meme that makes fun of white girls and Starbucks. People enjoy funny but new content. They don’t like the same joke beaten to death. There are some memes I find funny but don’t post because I feel like the joke is old.”
When it comes to his favorite memes that he’s posted, Ryan said, “This is one of my favorites because it has my face but also has a funny caption; the key to a good Instagram is also having funny captions. Thefatjewish and theslutwhisperer post funny pictures but their accounts are amazing because of the captions.”
#TransformationTuesday #DadBod the pic on the left is me when I was 185 about a year ago. It's been a long one year journey and it wasn't easy but after months of eating and working hard I am happy to say I finally achieved my goals. At points I wanted to quit. We are all guilty of wanting to quit. I can remember countless times when I was at chipotle and I couldn't finish my burrito but I pushed through the pain and cleared my plate. If you want to gain 30 pounds and get fat like me hit me up for meal plans
He continued on to say, “I mean this is one of my favorites because of the caption. I posted this when #DadBod was a thing. I was making fun of all those personal trainers and transformation pictures that write paragraphs about losing weight and gaining muscle. I gained about 30 pounds since I graduated college and got a real job so I decided to make a #dadbod transformation picture and write a paragraph about how hard it was to gain all this weight and how I had to fight through my meals at Chipotle and finish them.
“Another one of my favorites:”
With so many fantastic Instagram accounts, it can be hard to narrow it down to which ones stand out from all the others, but what Instagram meme creators in his area of interest does Ryan admire? “@DailyHoodHumor and @DailyHumor_4u because they taught me how to use my Instagram to market and promote other products of mine that I’m trying to sell, such as clothing. I really like @CabbageCatMemes, @TurntforTom, @DjGritz1, @DudeProblems, and @The_Memester_man they usually post funny content so I try to check their pages everyday … I could keep writing about other accounts that I find that have funny pictures but I think 5 is enough.”
