The Only Good About 2016: These 10 Memes Showing How Awful It Was

As has been noted extensively, 2016 was a rotten, no-good year, and easily the worst in recent history. That said, some fantastic things emerged from the heaping pile of flaming garbage, like more amazing music than anyone has time to listen to in just 12 months and a year’s worth of mostly great memes. Of those memes, one refers specifically to the bad year that was.

“Me at the beginning of 2016 vs me at the end of 2016” consists of two images of the same celebrity or character juxtaposed next to each other in order to show one at a happier, younger stage next to one near-death or especially haggard stage. For example, here’s Minnie Mouse at the beginning of the year looking happy hopeful next to Minnie Mouse at the end of the year looking despondent and drunk while sitting next to a garbage can.
