Our fave memes of 2018 (so far)

2018 has been one hell of a year and it’s not even over yet. We’ve had Hollywood scandals and political upheaval — but no matter what’s going on in the world, you can count on the good folk of the internet to make us smile. Here’s our roundup of the weirdest, most persistent memes of the year.

I don’t feel so good…

If you hadn’t seen Avengers: Infinity War when this meme started doing the rounds, then you were in for quite the spoiler!

 
 


A Star Is Born

Everything Lady Gaga turns her talents to ends up being a big deal, so it should come as no surprise that the internet has been having a lot of fun with this movie — and with the vocals from the trailer in particular.

 
 


Is your child texting about…

Confused by online abbreviations? This will only have you more baffled.

 
 


American Chopper argument

We’ll be honest, we had no idea what show this meme was from until we started composing this list… we just love the earnest rage on those guys’ faces.

 
 


Is This A Pigeon?

Taken from a Nineties cartoon, the clueless dude who thinks a butterfly is a pigeon has become the face of all self-involved, short-sighted and ultimately dumb questions.


Bibble singing

We’ve never felt older than when we learned just how young some of the kids on Twitter were when our favourite songs came out, thanks to this memified version of Bibble from Barbie: Mermaidia.

 
 


Yodel Boy

When 12 year old Mason Ramsey started yodelling in a Walmart, a meme was born. We’re including him in this list because our social manager Kate has been known to do an uncannily accurate impression in the office.


Moths

It is a truth universally acknowledged that moths like lamps. And for a good week earlier this year, moth content was our favourite content. We don’t know how or why this became A Thing, but it is truly beautiful to watch one meme build on the great work of those that came before, such as the ‘distracted boyfriend’.
