The Best Memes of 2018

By  | 

Memes make the world go ‘round, or something like that. The highlight of our social media feeds, they’re much better at cheering us up rather than seeing people you follow doing fun things while you’re sitting on the couch on a Friday evening. 2018 has brought up some fantastic memes so far, so sit back and enjoy this glorious roundup of the best memes of the year so far.

What’s Your Child Texting About?

Highlighting how parents often misunderstand modern millennial texting lingo, the internet has run with it to include all kinds of different topics, from tide pods to Olive Garden.

Super Bowl Selfie Kid

After Justin Timberlake stopped to take a selfie with Ryan McKenna during the Super Bowl Halftime performance, little did McKenna know he would become the face of one of 2018’s hottest memes. The kid even got a guest appearance on Ellen, so it turned out pretty sweet for him.

Gym Kardashian

Photoshopping has become the all-powerful in meme making, and it does not disappoint with Gym Kardashian. A super swole Kim looking like she could bench you with one hand? Yep. Random, but oh so hilarious.

Jennifer Garner Clapping at the Oscars

During a cut to the audience during the Oscars, Jennifer Garner is seen clapping, then suddenly completely stops and looks mortified. Why? We may never know. But boy does it makes for some solid meme material.

Lebron James and J.R. Smith

Professional sports are a goldmine of meme material, and Lebron and J.R. Smith found themselves at the forefront of internet memes with this one. Just look at Lebron’s face. Betrayal? Disgust? You can say anything about it, really. It’s a perfect personification of a “wtf” moment.

Zuckerberg’s Congressional Hearing

After Congress grilling the Zuck for a multitude of Facebook hacks, the internet had a field day with his robot-like mannerisms. A bad situation being turned into some quality laughs, everyone wins. Well, except poor ol’ Mark.

Change My Mind

Steven Crowder caused an internet storm after his “Change My Mind” series, where he asked people to change his opinions on a variety of topics. Naturally, hilarious-minded folks on the internet used this to create some spectacular memes.

My FBI Agent

Thanks to a steady stream of hacking news, there was bound to be some underlying humor to the whole thing. Enter: my FBI agent. With internet users feeling as if someone was inevitably spying on them, people began to refer to this fictional character as their own personal FBI agent. Thankfully, it seems like everyone’s FBI agent is not too bad of a person.

Gru’s Plan

Despicable Me was actually a pretty solid series of movies. Well, that is, until the Minion mania took over and oh my god please make it stop. Thankfully, the character of Gru found himself at the center of a pretty solid meme.

American Chopper Argument

Pulled from a heated argument in the reality show American Chopper, full of manly men building choppers and stuff. As a show, eh, 6/10. But did it give us meme material? You betcha.

Mark Zuckerberg

The CEO of Facebook testifying before Congress regarding user privacy and the Cambridge Analytica. What could go wrong?? The testimony provided with what is the best evidence that dear old Zuck is 100% a robot.

Is This a Pigeon?

A screencap from a 90’s anime series, this meme has been on the internet for nearly a decade, but it made a strong comeback this year with some pretty hilarious object-labeling.

I Don’t Feel So Good

After practically everyone disintegrated at the end of Infinity War, we were all collectively shedding a tear when Spidey lets loose this line while in Tony Stark’s arms. Thankfully, we can all laugh about it now with the collective treasure trove of memes we got from it.

Young Thug On The Computer

Look at Me. Thug, so focused on putting together some fire in the studio. Or is he pulling off the hack of the century?

Melania Gardening

If there’s one thing we can be certain of the First Lady, it’s that gardening is not in her repertoire of skills.

Bibble Singing

So I guess this curious blueish-green fellow is from several Barbie movies? Nevertheless, the internet had a field day with this one in 2018.

Elon Musk Smoking Weed

If you haven’t caught this particular episode of The Joe Rogan Experience with guest Elon Musk, I HIGHLY recommend watching it. After puffing on a blunt, Musk was immediately immortalized into meme history.
