Meme Of The Week: The Best Memes Of 2019

Illustration by Jennifer Ilett

2019 came with a lot of memes. Here are the most memorable ones.

“This year was a big one for memes” is probably a phrase that can be applied to every year since social media became a thing. But yeah, this year was a particularly big one for memes, with a lot of them lasting for a couple of weeks (that’s years in internet speak) and reaching audiences of all ages and creeds.

2019, like all years, consisted of only 365 days. But because memes have a way of keeping culturally interesting topics around for longer, it feels like a much broader period of time.

Here are the 9 of the best memes of 2019.

Baby Yoda

Baby Yoda came out pretty recently but it’s been embraced like no other meme. You may have not seen an episode of “The Mandalorian” but you’ve seen and loved Baby Yoda. That’s crazy because that’s not even the little guy’s name.

Woman yelling at cat

I don’t know who thought of pairing a photo a weird looking cat and a photo of a screaming Real Housewife, but they did it and it was great. These two are almost impossible to separate from the other.

Storm Area 51

The storming of Area 51 was one of those things that would have never gotten notoriety if it weren’t for the government and the fuss they put up when they saw the amount of people who’d interacted with the original post on Facebook.

Kombucha girl

Kombucha girl might be the meme that was most used throughout the year. I don’t know if that’s true but it’s certainly the meme I used the most. I love it.

Rise and Shine

Kylie Jenner singing rise and shine was so weird that everyone took the video and went with it, photoshopping her into The Voice and writing jokes in fitting scenarios. It’s a very funny and ridiculous meme.

Ok, Boomer

“Ok, Boomer” began as a hilarious Tik Tok that later became a phrase that was later purchased by FOX TV because the channel wanted to make a reality TV series about it. That’s basically a meta “Ok, Boomer.
