Nominated in Meme/Parody Account

About Cory Richardson

Cory Richardson is the meme account begging for some double taps, asking in his bio to "please laugh at my jokes or i will cry." Well, thankfully for Cory, his Instagram account with 38K+ followers, he uploads tons of silly, goofy and funny memes. His posts read like little comedy sketches, often setting up a self deprecating or absurd scenario with an even more ridiculous ending. In an interview earlier in 2019, Cory talked about his initial forays into the meme world, saying, "i used to use twitter like a normal person. tweeted really boring stuff about sports and my life… so i started just posting jokes randomly one day and then i didn’t stop."
