Pointless with a side of AWESOME: Meme Apps for Android

Aug 5, 2010

Android apps can be very functional, educational, and useful. They can help us get where we need to go, keep us organized, and look up vital information. But keep a little space in your phone for some apps that really do nothing but give you a chuckle. After all, he who laughs last, laughs best. And he who laughs at Chuck Norris… dies.

Chuck Norris Factbook

He may be more myth than man, but no one questions the guy who can lead a horse to water AND make it drink. A quick tap on the shotgun in this app fires off a Norris-ism and a pleasantly realistic gunshot sound effect. You can turn the sound off if you don’t want to be conspicuous about the fact that you’re reading about how Chuck Norris can cut diamonds with his fingernails while you’re in a board meeting. Once in awhile you’ll get a repeat, but what do you expect from the man who counted to infinity twice? If you don’t get the Chuck Norris Factbook app, Chuck Norris will get you. (Free, but Chuck Norris will always make you pay.)


Sad Trombone

Inspired by the “sad trombone” Internet meme (at www.sadtrombone.com, of course), this little blue button makes the pathetic “mwah mwah mwaaaaah” noise right when you need it. Someone tripped and fell? Got a wrong answer at trivia? Shot down by a cute guy at a bar? Sad Trombone is there to make you feel…well… even worse. (Free)


LOL Sites

The good people at Cheezburger have given us yet another way to waste time with captioned kittehs. Quicker than navigating your mobile browser (no ads!), this app gives you access to a lot of your favorite LOLz, from cheezburgers and hot dogs to Pundit Kitchen, Up Next in Sports, the always-popular FAIL Blog, and many more. Pick your site, and just swipe your finger across the screen to bring up a new LOL photo or video. You don’t get the comment sections, which may be a downer for some. But you CAN create a LOL and submit it right from the app! U will be shure to haz a happy wif dis LOLz app. (Free)
