  3. Can anyone explain to me why people find the Yoshi tax fraud/IRS meme funny?

I see it all over social media sites like Twitter. I see it in comments on YouTube and they always get tons of upvotes. People seem to like this meme and find it funny. However, I don't get it. I think it's a dumb meme and it needs to fade away into obscurity forever. I don't get the appeal for this meme.

So why do people like the Yoshi tax fraud/IRS meme? I ask because apparently it's "canon" now because of this:

No matter how hard it tries, Yoshi can't escape paying his taxes.

Most memes are dumb and not funny. But most modern people on the web have no sense of humor and are offended by everything. Of course they're going to find dumb stuff funny.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

...I don't even know what the meme is. But considering stuff like Ugandan Knuckles, I'm not really surprised about dumb memes.

It's funny in an artificial way.
Like the Ugandan knuckles thing.

People enjoy it and find it funny, therefore make further references/things about it and those who enjoy it too help spread it.

Contextless (or even with context) it isn't funny, and whilst I don't find it funny those who do probably have no further explanation then 'it is funny'. Because honestly, think of something you find funny, now try explaining why it is funny. Doesn't really work does it? XD

When it comes to meme's, being tolerable, like the yoshi one, puts it at the top of the meme list.

Except it's not tolerable. It's annoying and old.

But less annoying than most and less old than many therefore it earns my tolerance and, relative to other meme's i see nowadays, my respect.
