21 Memes About Living in Los Angeles That Every Angeleno Knows to Be True

September 3, 2014 by Brian Champlin

To paraphrase Boromir, one does not simply meme about Los Angeles. These things have to be clever, honest, heartfelt, and definitely not take themselves too seriously (you know, pretty much everything that outsiders would stereotype angelenos as NOT being).

In that spirit, I have done a couple searches on Reddit scoured the internet far and wide to locate the memes that best identify the culture, people, and geography of this incredible place that we call the city of angels. Or, in other words, memes that angelenos will find to be hilarious because they are spot-on true.


Enjoy the rundown.
