What Do No Memes Mean?

No memes represent a forceful "no." They're a way to visually express how you feel about a request when words aren't enough.

How Are No Memes Used?

Most no memes include a picture of a cranky character or animal. Sometimes the creature is laughing or smirking, though. Think: "ha ha ha no" or "how about no?" variations.

Examples of No Memes

Example #1:
 The No face.
Text: No
Meaning: Derived from a rage comic, no face, also known as rage face, is here to decline your request or disapprove of your idea.

Example #2:
Top panel: dog appearing to laugh. Bottom panel: the dog is looking deadly serious.
Meaning: When your request is so outrageous, you get a hearty laugh before a hard no.

Example #3:
Dog with an apparent sneer on their face
Text: Wait, I got a better idea. How 'bout no?
Meaning: A sassy way of saying no, when a simple no isn't sufficient.
