If you remember the Athenos Grandmother Campaign from Droga5, the Athenos Meme Generator is the perfect way for you to get a little closer to experiencing her anger.

The site has a simple slogan of "Old Greek women. Old technology. Together at last," and allows the user to choose his animated Yiayia from 16 different GIFs. The user can then "express your disapproval" and share her online. Users can tweet and Facebook like the GIFs, and a top list GIF pile is composed.

The Athenos Meme Generator is truly funny, especially when one wants to look at others' contributions. The generator also makes you very thankful that the Yiayia is not your actual grandmother and will never be as disapproving as those in the Athenos ads.
