2015 has been a spectacularly successful breeding ground for all sorts of memorable gags and memes, from a Pizza Rat through that wretched Dress to the Rarest of the Pepes (not on this list, sorry), which is kind of odd, considering our texting and social media posts are supposed to get more advanced. Think about it, we’re using emojis/pictures/GIFs/videos to relay a massive amount of feelings and reactions! We went from expressive Shakespearean and Dickensian texts to a simple “lol”, or “tears of joy emoji” in less than a few hundred years (said a kettle to the pot).
Anyway, enough preaching, let’s see what crazy ideas the internet has “adopted” in 2015! It was really hard for me to choose only 10 memes, as there were dozens upon dons of them, but here they are (in no particular order, because they’re all equally important):
10. The Pizza Rat
Imagine a hard-working dad (or mom), coming back from work, noticed a 300 lbs chunk of gold, so, of course, he’d bring it home even if he can’t lift it. This pretty much sums up what happened to this brave and inspiring rat. He didn’t give up, didn’t back down, he just kept pulling that slice of magnificent NY pizza. This was enough to inspire millions of people on social media. And with this much support the rat would’ve ran for the president if it wasn’t for his arch-enemy Trump. Imagine the world where Trump would lose to the Pizza Rat.
