The Mashable Meme Machine is a daily look at five hilarious viral topics spreading across the web right now. It’s been a long, dark week on the Internet, but humor cures all. The daily Meme Machine continues to churn out hilarious topics to help you feel better. Today’s hot topics include a flashback to the ’90s, thanks to the ever-popular Oregon Trail and Microsoft Encarta 95. For good measure, throw in an eel that shouldn’t quit his day gig, Lionel Richie and Ron Swanson dancing in a tiny hat. Got a tip for us? Reach out to Brian Anthony Hernandez (@BAHjournalist), Christine Erickson (@christerickson) or Lauren Hockenson (@lhockenson). 1. The Oregon Trail Webcomic Formal Sweatpants took a crack at the popular childhood computer game. If you ever cracked an axle or lost an oxen while fording the river, you can appreciate this one.
