2011 is coming to a close and what better way to look back and reflect on a year well spent than with a recap of the year’s best memes? Know Your Meme has released a list of the best memes of 2011. Did your favorite meme make the cut?
Know Your Meme’s list includes Rebecca Black’s ‘Friday’, which achieved meme-hood back in March thanks (strangely enough) to the fact that it was so bad; planking, which inspired its own flood of copy-cat memes like owling and leisure diving; Nyan Cat; Chuck Testa; Occupy Wall Street and more.
Check out the video below and let us know if your favorite meme is on the list.
The Know Your Meme video currently has around 70,800 views on YouTube with 762 likes and 1,816 dislikes. Several users have pointed out the ratio, which is pretty heavy on the side of the dislikes, and are asking whether disliking this video has become a meme in itself.
Is it a meme to dislike this video or are people just dissatisfied with Know Your Meme’s picks? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below and, if you’re a meme fanatic, check out last year’s Top 30 Memes In 2010 for comparison.
