Memes can say a lot about our culture and the top memes of 2016 say a lot about this past year. From Dark Kermit and F* 2016 to Sad Affleck and Phelps Face, memes capture our culture's overall state of mind and popular culture.
Of course, looking back on the top memes of the year isn't just a good way to reflect on the past, it's also a good way to get a quick laugh. While the list isn't complete (they intentionally left out Harambe), it's a good place to start and it leaves plenty of room for you to leave your own favorite memes of the year in the comments.
So if you're feeling nostalgic, curious or just need a chuckle, don't miss this list of 2016's best memes on Thrillist.
