These Are THE Funniest Memes To Come From The Plot To Storm Area 51

by Elana

So, unless you've been living under a rock until just now and avoiding the entirety of the internet at all costs then you've probably heard a few things about a 1.2-1.5 million person march to storm Area 51 to liberate the aliens. The event on Facebook started out as a joke but has become an entire subset of meme culture and has made global news, even warranting responses from the US government!

Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews told The Washington Post:

Area 51 is an open training range for the US Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces. The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.

Area 51 is the common name of a highly classified United States Air Force facility located within the Nevada Test and Training Range, it has been riddled with controversy, mystery, and sci-fi tales of alien fan-fiction for decades now. In response to firm threats released from the US government urging citizens not to storm area 51, one user said:

Hello US government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan. I just thought it would be funny and get me some thumbsy uppies on the internet.

As the event has gained momentum and popularity, some of the funniest and most hysterical memes of the entire year have been spread like a California wildfire over every social media platform you can think of. The event, which is scheduled to take place on September 20th, 2019, is probably going to fizzle out and fade, but for now... the memes are absolutely hilarious.
