The Handmaid’s Tale Memes 2022
We are sharing our favorite funny Handmaid’s Tale memes (and not so funny!) about the show, life, women’s rights, Texas, SCOTUS and more.
The Handmaid’s Tale started as a futuristic dystopian novel written by Canadian author Margaret Atwood. In the years since it’s 1985 release, it has been made into a movie. Then in 2017, it became a hit Hulu series sharing the dark hell of the takeover of Gilead.

From the and the looming questions that left us asking what is next at the end of season 4 to the trailers and spoilers – The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 episode 1 can’t come soon enough.
What will become of Gilead with the death of Commander Fred Waterford?
Handmaid Memes of June and Offred
The hero of the show, is June. She is renamed Offred when she became a handmaid to Fred Waterford and Serena Joy.
This photo of her required it to become an insomnia meme. There is no sleep when you are overtaking Gilead.
This handmaids tale meme of June is what I think every single time she does something crazy. You know, like hijacking an airplane to save children by bringing them to Canada.
The love affair of Nick and June. What will become of them in season 5? For the first time, we will be introduced to Nick’s new wife, Rose – played by Carey Cox.
When they have no idea what you are capable of. The power of June is unstoppable – or is it?
June is played by the amazing actress Elisabeth Moss. She also starred in the hit Mad Men. Here’s a Handmaids Tale meme that serves as a good reminder to vote.
Handmaid Tale Quotes
There are a few infamous quotes from the Handmaid’s Tale series that are worth repeating, especially in jest.
Under His Eye Meme
Under his eye is often used as both a “hello” or “goodbye” in the belief that God is always watching.
In the Republic of Gilead, everyone is under the watchful eye of the government, spies and secret police. They are seen as the eyes of God. The eyes report anything that could be seen going against the new order of Gilead.
Resist is what June and the handmaids do, as they rise up against the aunts and in an on-going attempt – try to defeat Gilead.
They should never have given us uniforms if they didn’t want us to be an army.
Praise Be Meme
The meaning of Praise Be is express thanks following an happy event. In Gilead, a happy event could be good weather or a pregnancy.
Blessed Be the Fruit Meme
The main function of a handmaid is to procreate. Blessed be the fruit is a standard greeting between handmaids to encourage fertility.
Nolite te Bastardes Carborundorum Meme
In The Handmaid’s Tale season one, episode four – we were introduced to the saying nolite te bastardes carborundorum. It was carved into the closet of the room that Offred was staying, and was done by a former handmaid.
Download The Handmaid’s Tale phone wallpaper from the official Instagram. So what does this saying mean?
Well…. low and behold – while if it were real it would mean “don’t let the bastards grind you down.” That said – it’s made-up! Nolite te bastardes carborundorum is mock Latin—a schoolboy’s joke, as it’s explained in both the novel and the series.” Read the history behind this phrase.
Aunt Lydia Memes
Aunt Lydia memes because you can’t share Handmaids Tale memes without them!
As serious as she is, making a funny Aunt Lydia meme is just too easy.
If you have a boss that makes Aunt Lydia look like a nice person, first bless. Second – send your co-workers one of our funny work memes.
The scene where all the handmaids are in a circle chanting, she did… yeah, this who farted meme is much better than what happened after that scene.
Political Handmaids Tale Memes
When you thought The Handmaid’s Tale was a dystopia novel, not a political roadmap. (source: @IanMaher7)
The current SCOTUS aka Supreme Court of the United States is doing what they can to limit the rights of women over their bodies. Except, what they want isn’t what they will get.
Handmaids Tale Texas Memes
For my fellow Texans, here are the best Texas Handmaids Tale memes to share.
Being from the what could be the great state of Texas, the shenanigans the state government pulls regularly is absurd.
This is nothing new with the current administration but more recently with the SCOTUS ruling, women’s rights has taken center stages.
Gotta love these blue Handmaids Tale Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader outfits! (See our Dallas Cowboys memes – for lovers and haters!)

Handmaids Tale Birthday Meme
Blessed be your birthday. Praise be. We have birthday memes for all occasions.
Under His Eyebrows Meme
While Nick is a cutie, his eyebrows do take center stage as represented in this under his eyebrows meme.
The handmaid Janine just doesn’t get a break. From missing an eye to having her baby taken from her, to nearly being undone in season 4 to become a fugitive. Bless her. The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 is sure to be a thriller, let’s just hope she survives.
TGIF – nope not one of those Friday memes. It’s Thank Gilead it’s Friday. Sounds like absolute hell, if you ask me.
Yeah, about that Fred Waterford. This Handmaid’s Tale meme is a little dated. We all know how you ended. It wasn’t pretty, but neither was your life.
Serena Joy Meme
The widow of Commander Fred Waterford is shown in this Serena Joy meme in a joyous and no joy state. She is going to make season 5 something else.
Trump Ofputin Meme
Last but not least, the conclusion of our Handmaids Tale memes with an Ofputin meme. Our least favorite handmaid, who is innocent until proven guilty – which could be any day now.
