Description I argue that CzenglishMemy, a Twitter and a Facebook profile with the subtitle Czenglish memes about this divný národ, may present a fine example of political carnival site by combining images featuring current news stories with Czenglish captions. First, I analyze the linguistic and multimodal means through which the humorous effect is created (post-image-caption interplay, lexical choice, code-switching patterns, syntactic violations, etc.). Next, I discuss the target audience of the Czenglish memes and critically examine their potential impact.
