From Tumblr, Instagram, Reddit, and various online outlets, you can find Internet memes. For anyone unfamiliar with the term, a meme is simply a picture, phrase, or video that becomes viral. A meme, in its essence, should never be questioned for it is random and no one knows where it originates. Generally popular among teens, parents look at Pepe the Frog and ask, what’s the hype? Thus, I want to go through and list the best memes in the last year.
You know the guy. He is actually a Turkish chef that literally sprinkles salt on his food just as his viral Instagram video shows, making a dramatic finishing touch to his steaks. Honestly, I think anyone who looks at this photo finds it funny. I love memes.
Cash Me Outside (How Bout Dah) aka Danielle Bregoli on Dr. Phil
So this is a 13 year old girl that has serious behavior management issues, and her iconic line “Cash me outside” is all part of the language she learned “from the streets,” as her mom puts it. This girl was out of control on Dr. Phil, offending both the doctor and the audience. She has literally blown up since then, and she now has over 5 million followers on Instagram.
Kazoo Kid (Trap Remix)
THIS is one of the best things on the internet. Kazoo Kid cannot be explained with mere words. You must follow this link to see him in his full glory. It is just a very odd episode from a '90s children’s show called Special Friends that has been resurfaced. The things the kid says, “I like to sing, dance, pretend, and have fun!” make this strangely hilarious. http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/you-on-kazoo
This meme is a series of glowing, scientific images of the brain that are meant to show a level of being mind-blown. The brighter and bigger the brain photo, the more incredible the subject of the meme. Sounds odd but I promise it is ironically funny once you find the right one.
"I have a pen, I have pineapple… Pen Pineapple Apple Pen." Do you love the Japanese man in shades and a yellow suit, or do you loathe him for inventing this catchy, obnoxious tune? No one can quite explain why an artist would go to such lengths to produce a song with odd lyrics, and that is why this meme is pretty darn funny.
Jelly Belly Pet Rat Gummy Candy
Most underrate meme out there. It's a viral video by the Youtube channel runforthecube, in which a narrator intentionally mispronounces words as he opens a package with a gummy rat inside. You must see it to believe it, please do click out of this tab to watch it if you haven’t already.
RIP 2016, he was more than just a gorilla. Enough said.
So that’s your 2017 meme count so far, but expect many more to come. My favorite meme of all time is “Bad Luck Brian,” I’d love to read your favorite in the comments!
