Ranker pulled in extra help to sift through the memes of 2012 and put them in order for the convenience of anyone who wants to relive them. It wasn't easy!
I think I'm just gonna be frank here: I am, right now, insane. I shouldn't be. I should be the picture of mental health, like I was yesterday. But that was before I agreed to catalogue the best memes of 2012 for Ranker. Before I agreed to comb through an entire year's worth of internet, find the stuff it found interesting and then (this is the part that made me insane) explain why that stuff is interesting to you.
Bonus: it starts with #1, so you can read as far as you are interested. Link
