 Macon native Miles Mashburn likes to poke fun at his hometown. In fact, he’s made a hobby out of it with his Macon Memes Facebook page.

 

“I’ve always liked making people laugh and particularly I love making memes on my personal Facebook,” Mashburn said. “So I decided to make the page 'Macon Memes' to kind of branch out and get a following and it turned out to be a pretty successful.”
