The Year of the Meme

It’s no doubt that 2016 has been a tough year for us all, but there has been one form of entertainment courtesy of the interwebs that has united us all – the meme (which I am fairly sure is pronounced “MEEM,” for all you weirdos who say otherwise).

No matter what your race, religion, sexual orientation, or – dare I say it – political affiliation, you can’t not enjoy the pure simplicity and subtle humor of a well-done meme. It’s difficult to say how or when the first meme circulated, but some argue that Hampster Dance (1998) and LOLCat were among the first (if you have ever wondered about the origin of LOLcat – which you obviously have – check this out). But it’s 2016, and we have gotten collectively better in the meme game.

Even with all the craziness surrounding us this year, some of the best memes we’ve ever seen were created and put together the best memes of 2016 for every day of the year! According to the site, “for every day in 2016, Select All has picked one meme that either originated, broke through, or reached its height on that date, and done our best to explain it.”

Check out some of the best below or all of them here.

Regardless of all the sh*t that went down, we still came out with some memes that are still lol-worthy and can bring people together in the face of anything.
