Top 9 memes the Internet loved in 2018

Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg emerged as perfect meme material

by Ankit Chawla

2018 has come to an end, but the memes haven’t. Billions of users across the world, this year too, shared their favourite memes across social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. We take a look at the top 10 Internet memes that were close to everyone’s hearts this year.

“I don’t feel so good” Avengers: Infinity War

(Spoilers, ahead!) Every Marvel fanboy that saw Infinity War knows the heartbreak scene that happened right at the end. While we won't delve into any details, the "Mr. Stark, I don't feel so good" line stuck and was a part of many meme variations we saw on social media. Our pick was the Windows logo disappearing from Bill Gates' hands.

Tide Pods

While fascinating and informative, the Internet is a weird place too. Tide Pods was a phenomenon that took over millennial social media this year. For those in the dark, this trend involved jokes centred around the ingestion of consumption of Tide Pods, which are laundry detergent capsules from the brand. These pods aren't to be consumed, if you didn't already know that.

"This ain't it, Chief"

Yet another colloquial phrase, "this ain't it, chief" is loosely meant as a statement to dismiss anything that a person feels is cool or interesting. Its origin is not clear, but the phrase has gone viral on Twitter where it has been used for some hilarious examples.

Gym Kardashian

Another hilarious, outrageous meme of 2018 was Gym Kardashian. Meant to be a witty take on "Kim Kardashian", this meme involves photoshopping regular images of Kim Kardashian to make her appear buff and built like a damn muscle machine. The results were extremely funny, with users sharing meme variations on Facebook and Twitter.

Infinity War is the most ambitious crossover in history

Yet another trend that originated from the latest Avengers flick was the crossover meme. It came to life after critics and viewers created hype about the coming together of most Marvel superheroes in this mega-star movie. The meme gives us a parody take on how other comical things can be better than the movie after all.

"If You Can't Handle Me at My X, You Don't Deserve Me at My X"

This meme was all the rage on Twitter this entire year. With a self-explanatory phrase, it essentially shows the worst and best sides of a person, product, or event. Initially used to distinguish between the most beautiful and ugly phases of a person, the meme soon transformed into something hilarious.

Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is a meme in himself. So, when the dude went in front of US Congress to testify against the privacy scandal, the Internet was abuzz with how he drank water like a robot, smiled creepily in front of senators, and defended the silliest of complaints. It truly was an interesting hearing.

Yanny or Laurel

The audio version of the Black/Blue or White/Gold dress challenge, Yanny or Laurel stumped listeners across the globe who came up with " target="_blank" rel="nofollow">weird theories as to why they were hearing both words whenever they heard the recording. However, like most memes this year, it soon gave way to other important things.

Elon Musk

2018 showed us how interesting a character tech billionaire Elon Musk really is. This year, he called a British cave rescuer a "pedo", smoked weed live on YouTube, broke down during a TV interview, and almost took his electric car company down with his tweets. Former CEO of Tesla Motors, Musk seems to have toned it down a bit. 2019 memes will miss you, Musk.
