22 Amazing Memes That Defined 2017

It’s no secret that we’re obsessed with the Internet and memes. Since social media is at the very edge of our fingertips, it’s no surprise we’re faced with an abundance of trending content and news. 2017 wasn’t the best year for many of us, at least living in America that is. Society has been falling apart around us and our personal lives aren’t getting any better, either. We’re swimming in debt, we’re depressed and anxious, and our love lives aren’t exactly perfect. But, when we have problems, what else should we do besides relate them to memes? Memes are like God’s special gift to the world. They’re better than a therapy session and more self-deprecating than any of us could ever truly be. 2017 may have sucked overall, but the memes, they were definitely “on fleek.”

3. Cash Me Ousside, How Bow Dah?

It may seem like the Cash Me Ousside girl is old news, but this meme appeared on the scene early in 2017. After appearing on Dr. Phil for “teens out of control,” Danielle Bregoli went pretty viral for her saying “Cash Me Ousside, How Bow Dah?” She also had her own music video and made a lot of money in merch. Talk about crazy.
