Those of us who have spent a lot of time using and abusing memes have a tendency to be very critical of them. We’ve seen this one before, that one is irredeemably cringe (in the bad way), and sheesh, whoever made the one over here deserves jail time. Everywhere we look in this abominable sinkhole we call the internet, we see garbage memes. We can’t always see this as a negative, though, if only for the sake of the thread that our collective sanity is hanging on by. In amongst all the trash is the occasional gem that makes it all worthwhile, or at least gives our cynical, wizened hearts something to cling on to. Whether some of these are contained within this list is a matter of personal taste, but there’s only one way to find out if it suits yours. You didn’t have anything important to be doing in the next couple of minutes anyway.
