'Aunt Becky' Jokes Abound Over Lori Loughlin College Admission Scheme Indictment

Lori Loughlin memes Aunt Becky Memes & Jokes Hit the Internet

When she discovers what her husband has done, she decides to tell the school the truth.

Lori Loughlin surrendered to the FBI Wednesday morning, following federal charges against her, her designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, actress Felicity Huffman and dozens of others for allegedly participating in an elaborate scheme to get their children admitted into highly selective colleges.

"Full House" star Lori Loughlin was one of about 50 people charged in a nationwide college admissions scam on Tuesday, and fans have pointed to an episode of "Full House" that may have foreshadowed the scandal.

Actress Felicity Huffman, most known for her role in Desperate Housewives, is also among the names of those who have been indicted for these crimes.

While the jokes are hilarious, the charges are not.

Finally, maybe the funniest meme to emerge has less to do with Loughlin or her Full House character, and more to do with a recent meme about rapper 6ix9ine.

Life may be imitating art for Lori Loughlin.

Phone eats an arrow, saves owner from attack (allegedly)
The reports further suggest that the arrow struck the iPhone, with the arrowhead partly passing through the device. The 43-year-old arrived home at his Nimbin property at 9am on Wednesday morning and got out of his vehicle .

Perhaps the very best joke on the internet is one that provides mock commentary in a court setting.

This next meme references a specific clip from Full House when Uncle Jesse looks at SAT test answers in DJ Tanner's class.

In the episode, Becky Katsopolis (aka "Aunt Becky", played by Loughlin) is mortified to find out that her husband, Jesse (John Stamos), has lied on their toddler twins' applications to a coveted preschool. Giannulli's attorney said part of the reason they came to this agreement was with the hopes that Loughlin, also indicted in the case, would receive the same bond deal as well as be allowed to travel to Vancouver.

"I'm so disappointed in you, Aunt Becky". It's unknown, of course, if Loughlin will end up serving any time behind bars for her alleged involvement in Operation Varsity Blues.

Colbert was referring to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the twins who played Michelle in "Full House".

This was not the only time "Full House" addressed cheating and school admission.

And then there was this joke about Aunt Becky's two sons, Nicky and Alex.
