Memes are life! It is a fact we all can agree with
Each year, certain memes make it to the top of the list for being killer and end up trending worldwide. This year was no different. We witnessed memes that made our gut hurt. In fact, given the pandemic at hand and worldwide lockdowns, the way people found solace and amusement in this cynical year was by hitting the World Wide Web, taking a piece of pop culture and turning it into a new symbol of internet language.
Here are a few memes that you might as well have witnessed on social media platforms this year, and loved them!
Syra Yousuf shaving Shehryar Munawar’s face wasn’t enough so people photoshopped Waseem Badami’s face instead. Dank meme of the year!
Definitely our favourite this year! Maria B and husband sat down and recorded a video to clear the year from an unfortunate event this year and people found the perfect snippet to make a meme out of
How can we forget this one? This one will go down in history!
Two late entries this year are Glee based.
The one that took off rapidly was the Jane Lynch line, “I’m going to create an environment so toxic” which has been edited to each their own context throughout this year.
